Do what you feel comfortable with. One idea that I might suggest is that you could install the H115i in the front of the case, and just put some fans on the top. Keep in mind you could always do a custom loop as well.

I know you said no more WaCo comments, but this is Evolv ATX specific. Well.....at least the first paragraph is......wink.gif

actually, if i stick with my current h100i, if i install another fan at the empty slot up top, will i still need to cover the empty space? I was thinking maybe a standalone fan there would be able to push the air back up without it leaking back into the case.

If the above works, i would probably do it plus let the top sit on the mount, giving it more space to exhaust

Think on that for a second......you are asking if adding more airflow (that will not help your cooling and is just airflow for the sake of airflow) into a restricted to fight with your functional fans is a good idea. More is not always better, and is many times worse, as is the case with the top of an Evolv ATX.

Try it out and see how you like it (if you have a spare fan). If your temps look good and ur happy with it, that is all that matters.

This is the more accurate answer. It isn't the fact that you're not pushing enough air up there, it is the fact that the air cannot escape.

Its like putting people in a prison cell and opening the door. They aren't running out fast enough, so you decide to put more people behind them. Still the same amount escape...hopefully that clears it up lol

Hey everyone, has anyone seen the enthoo pro m tempered glass edition on sale? I've bought one from here https://www.pccasegear.com/products/36366/phanteks-enthoo-pro-m-tempered-glass-edition and they're a reliable site but it's bordering on the expected delivery time and I can't find the case anywhere else.

Anyone have any ideas? I'm worried I bought something that doesn't exist
post #14837 of 19221
Sorry if this has been covered before - I'm on my second Phanteks build now and have had the same problem with both of them:

Plugging the CPU_FAN header into the Phanteks hub's input resulted in a CPU fan warning in the first system and a boot loop in the second. Am I doing something wrong or are some boards just a little bit weird about it?




edit: Stein69 your case exists, I bought one from PCCG a few months ago - that's build #2 I just referred to above wink.gif It's a beautiful case, you'll love it but you want to make damn sure you do a good job of your wiring because the back is glass also :'D

edit2: Stein69 actually just read your post properly and mine's the Evolv ATX TG ... you can disregard that wiring comment smile.gif

That wiring thing is part of the reason I jumped on this without looking into it lol the back panel is metal and being my first ever build I'd rather not have my cable management on show lol

Hi everyone, I just wanted to know if my eclipse P400s has a good airflow layout. Got 2 Phanteks F140SPs mounted in the front for intake (full rpm), the 2 stock case fans are mounted on top as exhaust (and connected to the case fan controller, usually left on high), and a Corsair H80i v2 with 2 Phanteks F120MPs push-pull (Corsair link set to quiet). Am I doing this right? In corsair link, the cores (i5 4690k) are usually always under 40c. I also must say, I am so happy that I replaced the stock corsair fans on the h80. They were so loud and didn't really cool that well at the high rpms they were always at compared to the Phanteks F120MP fans (as suggested by @michael-ocn thumb.gif)

Okay looking for some help making the most out of my Entho luxe water loop and based on what I've read from contributors here in this thread over the last three years I'm in good hands. << Can you believe that? ... 3 years?  Happy anniversary Doyll. :cheers:

 

I'm swapping builds from the Eclipse to the Luxe because I don't see a good way to handle the heat in my Eclipse w/ over clocked CPU and 2 GPU. Both rigs and there components are in my sig below. The dual ACS coolers of the OCed 980Ti's dumps way too much heat into the case.

 

In the Luxe I will be adding water blocks to both GPUs and upgrading the CPU block to the newest XSPC Raystorm Pro. My idea is illustrated below and I need your help refining it for max performance. Keep in mind I have a BluRay drive that must stay and the dual bay d5 stays as well and I've done the measuring and research to know an X-Flow 360 and other components will fit. Dual bay d5 in the top two 5-1/4 bays and the optical drive in the bottom 3rd bay. The GPU blocks will be EK acetal/nickel w/backplates. I'm also considering keeping the Corsair SP120 AS HSP fans but I'll leave the rest to your better judgement. Like what is intake/exhaust loop config tubing size etc.
