1. Depends on the thickness of the radiator and the length of the GPU (and the res mount spec). A 60mm rad in p/p will likely not work with a rad/fan mount. 30mm will work, 45mm rad in p/p might work.
2. Considering an SE is 26mm it should work (I don't know about width). There is no way this would result in a performance gain though. If anything it would likely run worse than a traditional setup.
3. Some people have done this and reported good results. A strong airflow fan for the rear, like a Noctua, would be advisable. Again though, there isn't much of a "gain" with this method vs a properly set up front and back intake and top exhaust. Resting the top panel on the clips (which is barely visibly noticeable) and sealing the radiator bracket pretty much solves everything.

1. The only rads that would fit in the front and allow room for a res when in push/pull, wouldn't benefit from push/pull in the first place. Slim rads don't benefit from push/pull, so it becomes a futile exercise unless you are using a short graphics card.

2. I have shown a couple of detailed explanations on the fact that the EK 360SE, being quite literally one of the worst performing 360s ever released, should never be in an Evolv ATX (it really shouldn't be used anywhere given the performance). You can get the same performance and look using a decent quality 240mm and you will have room for a good quality 360mm up top without fighting with it.

3. Some people have had good experiences running the top as intake. My build has better performance with the top as exhaust with the rad isolated - but it is also getting cool air from the intake fans since I removed the front rad.


Cool, thanks for the response. I already have a PE 360 and a PE 240 and I know those do pretty well. Good thing I asked before ordering that SE 360...saved me some money instead of wasting it on something that wasn't even going to perform well. I guess I will just wait until I get the case to experiment which fan orientation that would best work for me since #3 seems like a 50/50.

Hi guys, just jumping into the Phanteks discussion, going to build a computer soon. I'm interested in the Pro M Acrylic and the soon to be released (hopefully) Pro M Tempered Glass. Does anyone have any idea when the tempered glass version may be released? Its only been mentioned at Computex this year, so pretty recent. Just not sure how long it takes companies like this to go from showing off a model to production and sale. If its going to be many months from now, I'd just go with the acrylic version since I wouldnt expect an update of the case/motherboard layout, just really a switch from the windowing being acrylic to tempered glass.

No idea when or if it will actually be released. But, the case itself will be identical aside from the material of the side panel.

Hmm, I figured if they bothered showing it off, theyd already be far enough along with manufacturing. Glad to know the case layout would be the same. In terms of the Evolv versus Pro M, is the Evolv just a little bit larger inside? I'd go ahead and get Evolv TG, but I like the option of the optical drive bay, and in my opinion, dont care for the look of the Evolv's front.

The only difference is the panels and accessories, they are exactly the same chassis.

I'm brand new to this website, i have a problem with my case and i think you guys in this thread might be able to help more than others might

I recently bought a new Case and CPU fan because i was having overheating issues, i went with the Phantek Enthoo Pro, because i've only heard good things about it, everything moved right in when i was moving over my hardware:Everything except for the Power Supply.
I can't seem to get the Power Supply to fit right , i can't get the screws to line up with holes on the case, as im typing this, the psu is in this weird angle where i could only get one screw to line up and in. I was wondering if anyone had this case, and if they did something that just passed me by when installing the CPU, because it looks like the little rubber stands that the psu goes on is blocking it from going all the way to the edge of the case. Also im 99% sure im not just putting it in upside down.


The PSU is a Corsair 600w, so im pretty sure its compatible since it's a popular brand, so it has to be something really dumb that im missing

This airflow topic just getting no where, people just wanted to claim things and ignore physics it seems.

Any particular airflow topic? There must be several hundred different ones in this thread.

So what are the thoughts on the new Alphacool Eisbar 'AIOs'? I don't know the quality of the included fans, but the pricing is pretty competitve. A couple reviews show the fans to be a bit quieter than the included Vardars or the e-Loops of the EKWB and Swiftech units; though they are sleeve bearings.

The fans are only quieter because they're lower RPM though...
