Really well done and laid out, looks very clean. Great looking rads, res and blocks, and your tubing layout is excellent. Too many builds with really busy tubing these days, and this is a great example of why clean lines look (and function) best.

::cough cough but::https://www.amazon.com/Alphacool-NB-eLoop-Bionic-120mm-2300/dp/B00H3JP9A2::would have looked so much better and been so much quieter while still being blue cough cough::

Well....after FedEx lost the first one, I finally got delivery on the block. Really nicely made, very solid. It has active cooling on the VRM and VRAM, which is a huge plus. Install was a breeze on the EVGA SC, far easier than it would have been on an FE. Though Phanteks specifically says it is for FE, the included hardware would seem to work with just about any reference board and backplate. The one issue I did find was that one of the standoffs on the block was a tiny bit short, and tightening the screw fully causes the board to ben. I simply used one of the included plastic washers to fill the void. While EK, XSPC and Swiftech all require you to either buy their backplate or get the screws and washers on your own to adapt a factory backplate, Phanteks includes them. That is a nice plus.

I'm thinking it is a bit restrictive and am hoping someone does some testing on this soon - I'm not running a flow meter at the moment. The reason I am thinking this is due to the openings from the input and output into the block are slits, rather than a larger round hole. Temps are exactly as expected from a top tier block (the GPU maxed at 44 in Heaven and Valley, but that is in my setup which will be far different from others), nothing out of the ordinary good or bad.

I need to find the Luxe lighting controller I have laying around to see what the lighting looks like. I'm still undecided if I am going to use that, get an RGB controller and use the Aura adapter cable, or get three 3mm white LEDs with a plug that will go right into the GPU's LED power. Good for those using RGB LEDs, not so good for those of us who just want a single color and just want to plug in to the PSU or a 3-pin.

Without the lighting, it is good looking but nondescript in the case. I still need to clean up my wiring (sleeved extensions for GPU, MB, sound card and FP audio) and drop the drain down through the opening in the midplate.

Hi everyone. I really like the look and build of the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv TG case. Is it possible to fit a ekwb Predator 360 (not 240) into it? Thanks.

It fits, but I have yet to see good results with it. The restrictive top does not get along with the Predator 360 as we have seen several times in this thread. The Swiftech H320-X2 seems to have no such issues. It also happens to offer slightly better performance and lower noise in almost every application....while having a better pump....and being easier to expand....and being better looking in the case.

Thanks guys that means a lot! My second ever PC build and my first attempt at watercooling.

Those nb e loop will probably make their way into this build. The one thing I'm partially not happy with is the fans, didn't do enough research on fans before those were purchased but oh well.

hi there!
I can't find how to mount my DDC pump with the EK heatsink housing on the phanteks pump mount bracket supplied with the Evolv mATX.
The attachment form a square of 50mm side.

Can you help please ?
