Air Flow is decent considering the design. I have push/pull H110 GTX in front w/4x Phanteks 140 MP fans and 3-140s top & rear exhaust.

I'm pushing a 6700K to 4.7 w/1.345vcore balanced performance. ambient is 25.5c it idles 29 to 32c and 62 to 72c BF4 load

The GPU ia an EVGA 980ti SC ACS at +10mv +105PL +48CC +40MC idles 32-35c  52-69c BF4 load

IMHO a blower style GPU would be better for this case as would most of the cases out there with the stealth front. I bought/stole mine used.   

I started with the top two set to intake filtered for positive pressure case environment to minimize dust. Switched both to exhaust, after advice from here, removed filter and got maybe -1 -2c improvement

It's been running weekends 15hrs +/- for 3 months filters been cleaned once and interior is largely dust free.

I have seen finer screens that catch more dust but I think Phanteks made a wise choice with these filters.

Unless my house is more dust free than the rest of America not too bad.

Pics of the rig are linked in my sig.

What's the thickest radiator you can put in front of the Evolv ATX? Trying to do some research for my future water cooled Evolv.

if you mount the rad in the front there is pretty much no limit, but it will impact whether or not you can mount hard drives as well as the length of a possible top rad. don't bother with thick rad, it isn't worth it.

Any suggestions? It's been a while since I've researched radiators. Thinking of putting a 360 up front and a 280 on the top. I only have 2 SSDs I have to mount so hard drives aren't a problem.

+1 -- Indeed!

Howdy folks.

I recently finished picking out some upgrade parts for my system and a big part of that was my new case the Phanteks Evolv ATX. I now have everything except for a CPU cooler and would like some recommendations on what would be best with the rest of my system in mind with the new case.

Below you can see a full breakdown of the parts in my system.
Quote:
CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: Asus MAXIMUS VII HERO ATX LGA1150
Memory: G.Skill Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-2400
GPU: Gigabyte G1 GTX 1070 8GB
Storage: Samsung 850 EVO 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Storage: Western Digital BLACK SERIES 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM
Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 1000G2 1000W 80+ Gold
Case: Phanteks Evolv ATX

I previously had the H100i which was good but kind of loud. I was thinking of doing a small overclock but nothing crazy so was thinking something simple like the Arctic Liquid Freezer 120 but wasn't sure if that would be the best choice based on my system spec / case etc.

I haven't used the Evolv ATX before and i know it has the dedicated rail up top for larger radiators so want to ensure i get what ever would be best to finish the build.

Appreciate the help guys!

Stay away from the CLCs, especially if you prefer not having it sound like a jet. If you want simple liquid, go to a Swiftech unit.

The stock Corsair fans are indeed way too loud, but you can replace them with something a bit quieter. What you do have to keep in mind is pump noise. The pump of my H100i was by far the loudest component in my system and it wasn't broken or anything. I now have a custom loop with a D5 and that one is just not audible.

I'm switching to the Evolv ATX TG soon and I have a question: can you fit both the HDD cage in the bottom and a 280 rad in the front? If not I'll have to put my 280 in the top and 240 in the bottom because otherwise I won't have room for my HDD.

A 280 fits with no issue in the front with the HDD cage in.

As far as your CLC assessment, I am going to wholly disagree. Yes, you can change to quieter fans but performance decreases accordingly. The current crop of CLC are made of garbage components that rely on massive airflow to make up for it. Taking your approach leaves you spending $150 on a CLC that performs like a $49 air cooler, just with more noise. $139 gets you a Swiftech h220-X2 that offers better performance, far less noise and actually looks like a liquid cooler.

Besides that the PSU you picked is MASSIVE overkill (A good 400 watt PSU could power your whole system with power to spare) it also lacks any hybrid fan mode which means the PSU fan will always be on even in ilde
If you want hybrid fan mode you either have to get a lower wattage G2 a P2 or a Corsair RMx instead.

Get a good 550 watt PSU you dont need more then that.
