I'm needing / wanting to change to an AIO again because custom loops while they look nice are to much of a pain, my pumps also failing as well and the whole things not doing a great job of cooling, CPU & GPU are both on 40° doing nothing rolleyes.gif.

Hoping the Predator can do a better job on a new system.

It's the main reason why I buy AIO's, I don't have the time for full maintenance, when the Predator came out I had my eye on it, professional watercooling with the simplicity of a AIO.
Was also the reason I sold my MSI GTX980ti for a eVGA GTX980ti Hybrid at the end of last year, never went over 50c where the MSI hit 78c (Queensland summers, got to love them).

What ever happens I will end up with a Predator for the CPU at least.
I did notice Scorptec has the Seahawk listed, but I generally order from PCCG.

Agreed! The Predator 360 is such a nice cooler. Sold my GTX 980Ti a week ago to another Predator owner. Just unplugged the card from the loop, closed my loop and the connections on the 980 Ti, done.
Installed a prefilled cooler on my 1080 on Saturday and had it integrated into the loop without any hassle. Of course some pre testing with the stock air cooler first and the Predator only cooling the CPU.
It is not super pretty, but so easy to handle thumb.gif

I've tried all the normal cooling methods, air, AIO and custom loop. AIO is by far the easiest, custom looks nice but in my case 2h to fill fill and 3 days to fully bleed... kinda over it (reversed case makes it spazzy). Don't get me started on damn QLD summers, my room in summer hits 35° - 45° the whole time add an AMD card into that and you got yourself an oven eek.gif.

I'll be doing the same most likely, a Predator for the CPU, the pre-filled GPU blocks look pretty good but its also tempting to have 2 separate units for each just to better control temps and make cleaning etc easier I'll also probably have to cut the tubes down anyway seeing the SM5 is a pretty small case.

Anyone know if the 360 fits into a Phanteks Enthoo Evolv across the top? Based on the available dimensions (415 v 420mm of space) it sounds like it should fit but who knows when it comes to mounting holes etc...

It will but it's very tight.

Cheers guys, looks like the front is a bit easier (although I'd planned for the top). Guess I'll grab it and see what happens tongue.gif

Getting tired of my full loop, to much of a headache to fill, bleed etc and takes up 90% of the damn case.

But if you take one of the Predator for a GPU only loop, you'll need to remove the CPU block so that means flush/fill/bleed....but it will take less place in the case. wink.gif

Yes. Thanks schoolofmonkey, it will fit. I had one screw that I have to back off a bit, but otherwise it fits fine.
Also, as Dschijn mentions you'll find other uses posting their cases with the 360 fitting.
I will say, however, that the top has really constricted air flow out.
The top does have vents and spaces in the front and back, but it's still pretty restricted.
It's a cool case and I love it, but if I had a magic wand I'd give the top a big grill like the ENTHOO PRIMO.
I like the front as an installation option. You'll still be dealing with getting the heat out of the case, but maybe it's a better option.
I suppose you could try a front installation with the fans blowing out the front, but that'd defeat the dust filter.
Good luck and enjoy! Let us know how it goes. I'd be interested.
