The rad is only slightly thicker. It's really the significantly better block and pump that are the difference.

When you get right down to it......Alphacool were the top dog in radiators for a bit. People were willing to put up with the prep work required to get them clean for the performance and extra ports. With more rads coming to market, they are now just mediocre rads with a bad finish that take way too much work to get all of the flux and dirt out of. Their CPU blocks are awful (really, absolutely awful - terrible performance and very restrictive), their fittings seem budget (never had one leak, though) as do their tops, and their in house pumps are really weak. But.....their universal GPU block with changeable VRM and RAM cooling is a great concept for those looking to save a few dollars.


I respectfully disagree @ciarlatano my last few Alphacool rads had way better finish better hardware and zero issues that required cleaning, I know I tried to get something out of them and I couldn't they were perfectly clean. Anyone who buys any rad from any mfg should do at least the bare minimum one clean out of the rad so extra work is not an issue. Add to that the convenience of 7 ports, which IMHO, far out weighs the minuscule difference in performance.  Furthermore I believe their new line of X-Flow rads deserve a close look unlike some others they have a complete line up 120/240/360 in varying thicknesses 30 to 60mm and varying fin counts from 10 to 16 FPI. These are reasons why they are still the #1 seller of PC radiators.

One of the things that keeps it nice looking is the fact that it is not stuffed full of rads. Only what is needed is there, leaving room to keep the rest of the build looking good.

I agree. Each part stands out more. The Evolv ATX can easily become a crowded affair.

Only thing I would change is possibly routing the GPU cable between the GPUs and through the back. The vertical cable kinda break up the horizontal tube runs.

Agreed on the GPU cables and I will clean those up. I'm using the phanteks extensions along with the long cables on the AX1200i tucked in the back for now with room to put in the 2 HDDs.

Gonna go pick my set of unbreakable cable combs today and should be all done soon - http://munkymods.com/Munky-Mods-Pro-Flex-Cable-Combs--DIY-Kit_p_135.html

Starting to finally see some really clean builds in the Evolv ATX, very exciting and cant wait to see more! When I started my build I looked and looked to get some ideas and there just was not many builds that I felt took this case the next level and kept it clean.

Good Job.

Good Job.

Thanks, took me a while to get this build done.

Actually the original build looked like this -



And i wasn't happy with it. The case looked too empty. So pulled of a custom loop over the weekend.

I'm actually working on an Evolv itx mod which is the complete opposite of clean. Will start a log on that once it's 80% done.

It's the crystal link tubing 16mm. Since this is my first time watercooling I figured I'd play it a bit safe and just do 90's instead of trying to bend everything. One less thing to get wrong lol

You know a bent piece of tube only can leak at 2 places as long as it's not cracked. A chain series of fittings can leak at 2 places per fitting. More fittings higher chance of leaks. wink.gif

That's some good common sense thank you. With all this being my first time, I didn't even think of that lol

Makes perfect damn sense lol

Bending tubing is easier plus you save the cost on fittings. Let's be honest the money saved on adapters and fittings could pay for a CPU upgrade or something more important.
