Might help if you looked at a few case reviews. Bill Owen of The Mod Zoo did a very good review of case years ago. It's a long video covering most everything you could ever want to know about the Promo.

Yes, behind the motherboard tray is another drop-n-lock location for ssd mounting. I believe the case comes with at least one, dual mount ssd tray. You can relocate your ssd to that area if you remove the drive cage.

@doyll made a great suggestion. Watch Bill Owen's review on the case. A bit lengthy but very comprehensive thumb.gif

Has anyone played around with the front fan config on the Evolv ATX in regard to 2x 140mm fans and 3x 120mm fans?

I originally swapped out the two standard 140mm SP Phanteks items with three 120mm SP Phanteks fans but I didn't look at the SP rating of the 120mm fans which happen to be complete garbage.

I'm contemplating about changing back to two 140mm fans but going with the 3000rpm Noctua IPPC items (noise is not a factor for me), just wandering if anyone has any numbers or time that they have put into testing to see what the difference might be?

I run an EK-XLC Predator 360 in the top of the case and 120mm slim in the rear for exhaust (a 25mm fan won't fit with the predator). I'm hoping the Noctua items can pull in more air with the restrictive Evolv Front panel and help exhaust more hot air out the back of the case instead of through the radiator.

Thoughts and opinions please.

Hi Phanteks Phans,

I'm considering the Enthoo Pro M SE (I have a thing for the black & white theme case) and was wondering if it would fit this pre-built WC loop from EK? Where would I mount my pump/res combo? It would be coming straight out of my sig rig (see photos) and get thrown in the new case.

Thanks!
