For the front rad I removed the pump tray and notched out part of it so I could replace it back with the front rad in place. Looks good. That is if you want to use the pump tray.

Here is my build here. You'll see the pump tray that I modified in order to fit a full 360 up front.

I thought the included rad mounting bracket of the Evolv ATX can handle "up to 360" and "up to 280" top rads? Why is there a need to mod it if you mount a 360 rad up there?

 

Also, why can't the rad handle 3 x 140mm fans/420mm rad? Aren't all three slots in the mounting bracket all 140mm-compatible?

 

@All

 

I emailed Phanteks USA support regarding the possibility of having a TG on hinges for the Evolv ATX and here's their response:

 

"Yes we will be putting the tempered glass on hinges for the Evolv ATX."

 

I know it's kind of vague but I asked them for more details (ETA) regarding it. I'll post back with more information when they reply.

First of all thanks everyone who answered me.
Anyways I tried searching for it, but didn't succeed =/ Images in a 1700 pages thread are quite a lot xD.
Can anyone of you guys who managed to fit 2x360mm radiators in the Evolv atx provide me, even via pm, some pictures so I can understand how to do that?
Thanks!

My support experience so far:

Contacted Phanteks, they agreed to send me mid-plate replacement but they are no sure if to send me replacement of my side window because they are not sure. I have send them pictures with scratches on window, but sadly my phone camera is crap and quality is not the best and it is really hard to catch scratches on glass with camera as you see them with naked eye. They asked for more pictures but I can't get any better with that camera frown.gif I don't have any better one.


Little dissapointed as when I got my Corsair 780T one side panel was little bent and plexi had few scratches and in the same day after two pictures and receipt I got my new side panels shipped from Corsair.

Phantkes doesn't seem so friendly as Corsair was.

Well, we will see. Still has over 10 days to return case...

The tower can only hold three 120mm fans (360mm) or two 140mm fans (280mm). It is not big enough to stick a 420mm rad on it. The reason I removed the radiator tray was because I hate how low it sits. It covers a lot of the motherboard which i do not like. If I didn't remove the tray I would have a difficult time running tubing the way I wanted.

I prefer the removable panel. If it came with hinges I would have to remove the whole case each time I mess with it as the panel would smack my monitor. Unless they are detachable.

Darn....I just bought my Evolv ATX frown.gif. Two days for putting my system inside.... Should I return it?

What is the ETA for this updated ATX version? Any release date?

here you go. This was my old build. New hardware but same loop design. You can see how I fit two 360 rads in there

Which of the three top fan slots (left, center, right) accommodate the two 140mm fans/280mm rad then? But the reason why the tray is sitting that low is to give enough room for air to travel out to the top panel vents, right? Or is it because you're using thick 360mm rads?

 

Good point on the hinges but yes it would be better if they were detachable too.

I still don't have the ETA information on that. I'll let you know when I have a reply from them again.

That build looks awesome! smile.gif
By the way thanks for the pics! Anyways, one question: I guess that if you mount 2x360mm, then in the front you are basically forced to get your tubings attached to the radiator on the bottom, since you won't have much room on the top, am i right?
Thanks for your help, really appreciate it!

If I understand your question correctly then it would be the fan near the back of the case and the middle fan slot to accommodate the 280mm rad + 140mm fans. Actually I am using GTS 360 rads which are pretty slim. In fact they are the best performing slim rads.

Thanks! You are correct, though I think it is doable it will just be a VERY TIGHT fit. You'll have more room having the ports at the bottom and it will look much cleaner. With my reservoir there it blocks the ports if I would have flipped the rad around. Now there was a guy on here some pages back who made custom feet for the Evolv TG so that it would sit higher. This way he was able to mount a 420mm (I think 420mm. If not then it was another 360mm) rad under neath the case. He then routed tubing out the backside of the case. Would be pretty cool and I have thought about it to give my hardware that extra cooling as the airflow in this case is meh.
