You mean the Evolv ATX only officially supports motherboards up to 264mm wide. wink.gif

I figured that would help...

A BIT?! This seems a much bigger deal to me.

That's my one biggest complaint about the case, is that they didn't just make it 3/8-1/2" deeper front to back.

...killing two birds with one stone. I agree!

Thanks so much for the info and pics. At this point, I think I'm going to pass on a (approx.) $200 case that requires the compromises you've illuminated (especially when it requires modding a $600 mobo!).
Maybe Phanteks will release a future version with the added 10mm.

Good luck with your build. I hope it works out to be everything you hope for.

Hey team.
Can anyone tell me about removing the top panel of my "Phanteks PH-ES515E_AG Enthoo EVOLV ATX Mid Tower Chassis Case, Antracite Gray"?
Is it a difficult or trivial process?
Can I slide the radiator tray and radiator out and have access to the screws that I assume are there or is it a more difficult process?
I am seriously considering modding the top if it's relatively easy to remove.
My crowded/awkward build does a a great job of keeping the cpu and gpu cool, but I feel heat is not moving efficiently out the top vents/spaces.
Thanks for any advice!

Within the last 20 posts or so there's a picture posted a couple times. There's 2 screws in the front and 2 in the back that allow it to slide off I believe. The ATX model is actually easier than the ITX model in that aspect.

Ah, thank you sir, I see that now. I appreciate you directing my attention.

Massive overkill for a PSU. Your side SSD cables can be routed to the bottom hole
You really need to work on cleaning up the case. You have too many cables in front and better to move it towards back. Rotate the fans to have cables towards mobo.
Rear fan is not needed and can be removed.
Reason you not feeling enough exhaust on top, is you have not sealed the bracket.

You failed to mention the mismatched fans for push/pull on a radiator that does not really benefit from push/pull. Losing the Noctuas would likely actually help the situation.

So, I've found a way to be able to install two EK SE 360's into my case (Evolv ATX TG) without any real mods. I did kind of cheat a little bit, bit no mods. On the top I currently have a 360*26mm radiators, and, I do believe my 360*26mm in the front installation idea will work also..........

While I commend you for the effort, as well as a very clean result, I did want to point something out to those who may want to follow suit. There have been a number of posts showing the dual 360mm SE rads in Evov ATX cases due to the fact that they are the only name brand rad that will work with dual 360mm without extensive modification. However, it really needs to be pointed out that you can achieve better performance without the headaches by simply using better rads in a 360mm+240mm configuration, and with the midplate the appearance is almost exactly the same.

For example -

@ 750 rpm: -HWL GTS 360 + 240 will dissipate 319W, dual 360mm SE only 313W


At 1300 rom, the GTS 360 + 240 will dissipate 484W, the dual 360mm SE only 469W


At 1850 rpm, the GTS 360 + 240 will dissipate 603W, the dual 360mm SE only 581W


The point being, you can get the same cooling and appearance without the headaches.

Yes, I mistyped lol. It doesn't bother me much because it's only for visuals, and the board functions oerfectly fine without it. It's no more of a "mod" than removing a heatsink, really. Tajes about three minutes to carefully install or remove.

But yeah, if phanteks just had a bit more room, I'd call it a flawless case for my needs.

Useful information for next time. I've already got my first 360 and thr second in the mail lol
