[Official] Case PHANTEKS Case Club for lovers & owners - Page 1425

post #14241 of 19221
So, I'm well into working on my Evolv ATX TG. Some photos I'd thought I'd share to hopefully help some.

This is the ASUS Rampage V Edition 10 sitting in the case right now.


With the removal of the backplate for the motherboard, which has some LED's built into it, and the rubber grommets from this angular piece in the case, I was able to mount the board with no visible flex. I added a strip going from top-to-bottom along the back of the board of electrical/vinyl tape, to insulate it. I don't think it was necessary, but just did it as a precautionary step. Also, you can put a 24-pin power cable through the remainder of the exposed cable hole, with some fancy maneuvering. This shot also gives you an idea of RAM height compatibility. There aren't too many memory modules bigger than these Corsair Dominator Platinums, and they have plenty of clearance to a 120*x radiator.


The radiator on the top is an EK SE 360 (360mm*26mm), pushed all the way to the rear of the case. The front radiator I was testing length/fitment with, was my old EK PE 240 (240*38mm). So, if I place my radiator outlets for the front radiator at the bottom, I can actually fit a 360*38mm (EK PE 360) radiator in the front. Which is probably what will happen.


Here I did a quick mock-up of where I'll mount my pump/reservoir combo, to make sure it'll fit.




Lastly, even though I lose the 2x 3.5" HDD cage, I bought Phantek's 3.5" adapter and put the HDD in the basement.

^ if I may ask, could you take a pic of the back of the case straight on with the HDD mounted down there? I wanna see how far back it is from the front of the case.

I ignored the HDD mount and just used this stuff plus some neoprene for sound/vibration dampening. Added bonus of letting me install two (almost 3) HDDs at the bottom.

I've decided to take this picture to the fabricator as inspiration.

Any thoughts?

Bill does very nice work. His accessories and mods are if not the very best, among the very best and customer support is 2nd to none. I've known him for years now and have heard lots of praise for his work and how helpful he is .. never seen or heard a single complaint.

Removing the PCIe slot covers usually lowers temps, but if temps are good it doesn't matter if they are in or out.

I did it and indeed temps are slightly better now.
But I don't like these spectres, both make little friction noise (it's light, but annoys me).
I'll buy another PH-F140SP insteed.

Sounds like a plan. Please post up when you get it installed and let us know your thoughts.
You could try the 3rd PH-F140SP as bottom intake if case has bottom vent in front of PSU (your case is not spec'ed in rig specs)

Your comment about the Spectres reminds me how often people install new fans, rave about how great they are, then after a few days or a week decided they are not near as nice as they at first thought. This is why I always not only test the fans flow / cooling ability, but use them for a few weeks in one of my daily use systems to see if the first impression is accurate versus what I think after a few weeks of living with them.
Kinda like meeting someone and being really impressed, take them home and can't stand them a week later. tongue.gif

doyll you should append this to the OP since we get quite a few questions about these boards and the Pro M/Evolv ATX in here smile.gif.

It's a nicely done build and I could add a link in OP, but the images of mobo fit is not really detailed enough.
Besides, few bother to look at OP and OCN search lacks features needed to search out specific information. I'm more than willing to try and improve our Phanteks case database so people can find what they need, but after years of writing and making databases about things like airflow and how to set it up, fans and how they perform, etc, and seeing how rarely they are accessed without posting link to specific post I've kinda given up. blushsmiley.gif
Most peeps don't try to find info to answer their questions .. instead they post a question and expect someone else to give them the answers.

But isn't that what this forum is for tongue.gif. I can't say I'm truly innocent of that, though smile.gif.

I just mentioned it for more of a reference, so at least those who do know where it is can go to the OP and then link it a bit easier. It can at least open the option up to users to PM that user directly for more info, questions, etc.
