Knowing Phanteks, it would not be surprising to see an Evolv ATX high air flow edition this CES lol. They do listen a lot to their customers as evident by the clear and tempered glass panel offerings from them directly.

I'm working with Greg @ www.munkymods.com and we have been working on a front panel for my Evolv ITX build. Hopefully we will have something to share soon on that.

Yes it will, I can actually confirm it once I get home as well as I have both the items you are asking about.

appreciate if u can post a picture shows tat the rad put at the bottom... so that i can order the rad online . i heard that the width of the rad does not fit with the primo at the bottom. i hope they're wrong . thanks in advance.

2. Take off all the panels when you assemble the case. Problem solved in like 30 seconds. The inside of the case is steel. It is quite sturdy. I would not lay it on the glass. That is asking for heartbreak.
3. Not out of the box. There is a single HDD mount in the middle of the PSU shroud, but you have to purchase a 3.5 HDD tray from Phanteks (IE its not included in the box). Or you can do what I did and make your own mount. Plenty of ways to do this. Or you could top mount.
4. I do not like dust either. The easiest way to achieve positive pressure is to simply have more intake than exhaust. 360 up front, 140 exhaust out back. This should also cut down on dust.
5. The top doesn't have a dust filter on every inlet (mesh on the sides). If you want, you can buy dust filters on Amazon. I wouldn't expect this to be an issue with positive pressure
6. The panels are easy to put on. I lightly secure the top screws, then the bottom, then tighten in an X pattern. You don't need to have the case laying down to do this as the glass rests on screw holes. With that said, it is always a good idea to keep your hand near the glass just in case.

The only "big" issues with the Evolv TG is it's airflow restriction at the top and the fact that everyone and their mums is buying one. Other than that I would call it "the perfect ATX case". Unless you need 5.25 bays or lots of HDD space, I would go with the Evolv.

Thanks a lot, this is exactly the kind of information concerning the Evolv ATX TG I was looking for. I'm pretty much sold on it and I will order as soon as it becomes available for me on caseking. I only have a couple more questions to ask. Firstly,I found the HDD mount you mentioned on the Phanteks website and it does say it's compatible with the Evolv ATX but I couldn't figure out where it fits in the middle of the PSU shroud. I tried looking at all kinds of footage and photos, but didn't find anything. Unless it fits the 3 SSD drop and lock locations.

Secondly, I already have the fans and ideally I'd like two HDD locations, so it makes sense to me to have the radiator on top, unless the airflow is really bad. Is it? I know this is nitpicking and probably won't prevent me from picking up the case, but I don't know what configuration is best, since they all seem to have disadvantages:

  • Front intake, rad top intake, back exhaust: Isn't the positive pressure too strong?
  • Front intake, rad top exhaust, back exhaust. That's probably going to be negative, unless the radiator and the top panel block a lot of the airflow
  • Front intake, rad top exhaust, back intake. I'm leaning towards that, but it seems counterintuitive to have air from the top and the rear blowing in opposite directions. Does it make the most sense?

This is really no big deal probably, but I might have to wait upwards of 30 days until the black evolv ATX TG is in stock, so I'm just sitting here trying to plan every little detail of my build.

Final version will have shorter vents and available in opaque solid colors, Black, White or Grey. Colors will not be exact color match to factory paint. Pricing isn't finalized.




We will need to swap your EVOLV ATX factory mounting hardware and 3.5" bay cover to this custom replacement panel.

Production will be limited to small quantities, as demand is very small.

He is thinking to do ITX version if there is interest.

No custom one-off design orders will be accepted, they just don't have the time sorry.

Im, really liking it!

What do you think?

I have to be honest, I don't like it. Aesthetically it doesn't really match the Evolv (rounded shapes vs angled). Personally, I think any front airflow issues (since they aren't too bad) can simply be solved by increasing the space from the fans to the front panel. This could easily be achieved with a spacer plate with some new screw holes. If I were to have a new cover, I would want the cut outs to be similar to the shapes used throughout the Evolv. It is also REALLY thick. That looks like an inch. 1/2 to 1/4 would be better.

More to the point, the top is really what needs a solution, not the front. Bill has already said that he can't make a new top (too complex), but I really think he should consider having Evolv owners send in their top and he CNCs a cut out and then sends them back. Considering how stupid expensive big CNC shops are anything under $100 all said and done would be fine. $50 would be awesome. This could also be done to the front. Just my 2 cents.

Since you want 2 HDD locations, then top mount the rad and use the bottom HDD trays. For the fan orientation, I would go front:2x140IN, top rad: 3x120OUT/push, rear: 1x140IN. This is the same setup I have and it has mild positive pressure. The front and back aren't in conflict because the top is pulling everything up. You can get more pressure by offsetting your fan speeds as well (intake>exhaust).

How do y'all mount tube reservoirs on the enthoo evolv. Trying to do a straight mount on the hard drive Bay section but would much prefer to avoid drilling holes in my $250 cdn case.

Rad/fan mount is the best. IMO the predefined mounting positions aren't ideal.
