hey Charles,

1) I had to mount to the front. Even then it rubs up against the front panel's cables that sit near the top.. I had them pretty taught and so I needed to loosen them a bit after I initially installed it just to try to limit the vibration and tension on the cables. It does fit though and there is a bit of give.. its not super tight.

It could potentially fit up top, but you'd need to have a compatible mobo and ram combo. In my case, it sits too high and due to the thickness of the radiator and fans together, it just wouldn't fit.

2) I grabbed the Core V31 from NCIX a couple months back when it went on special for $70CDN. Here is a link to the NCIX US store.. On for $60

FYI, I recorded my install and will be posting an install video on my YT channel. Just have to edit it and throw it up.

I'm not sure who you're asking but I had to do a front mount because it won't fit in the top of an arc mini without some drilling.

Edit: oops ic who you're talking to now

I didn't run into any issues top mounting because the mounting plate on the EVOLV ATX is offset.. I'm using kingston hyperx RAM and there's about an inch of space between the RAM and the radiator.

Here is a link to my channel - Xannen Gaming

I have the EK 360 install I will be uploading, as well as an unboxing of the x34 Predator display.

Eventually I plan to do a couple other videos relating to more of a review/performance video for both of those items.
