I mean, outside of some nightmare volume of air scenario with a 360mm rad and 3000rpm Noctua fans running at full blast... but really now. Perhaps the only really valid exception would be a 360mm radiator mounted directly to the very top of the Evolv chassis. In that instance, I could possibly see my design performing slightly worse than a full cut out.

I think the main thing to focus on is aesthetics.

edit was look at the wrong measurements haha.

My cut out is 33.2cm by 15.2cm. Therefore the area is 504.64cm

Yes he said they may send one to you for testing since you are relatively close!

On another note, can you get custom size Demciflex Filters?

Not sure as I never tried but I found this size to be pretty good without making a huge gaping gap in the top lid that looks off. As with anything custom as long as your willing to pay I am sure it's possible.

i wouldn't mind something along the lines of this.

this took me literally like 30 seconds in paint, so the spacing isn't even and its pretty rough. but it's more just to show proof of concept - could try different sized slots, number of slots, different spacing etc

Do you have your top rad set to exhaust? If so, then it would be better to remove the filter, right?

@All

Can you mount a 280mm rad on front in such a way that the drive cages below the midplate aren't affected?

Yes its exhaust. Top being intake would just be the biggest facepalm. The filter has no effect on the exhaust.

Gotcha. Well there are people who swear by an intake top but we're on the same page.

Why is an intake on the top the biggest facepalm??

My front and top rads are both intakes with only my rear fan as the exhaust. And I get great temps.

Not the biggest facepalm for me but too much intake (which I think is present in your situation) would just produce hot air pockets inside the case. And the Evolv ATX with the stock top panel is really not designed for a top rad intake.

Yes I modded the top bracket so my fans are mounted above my radiator. Hot pockets? I have pretty sufficient air flow through the case, and then it gets sucked out by a fairly high RPM 140MM fan in the back.

I guess it's all preference, because in the grand scheme it hardly makes any difference either way.

It's all air flow...ie fluid dynamics. Doesn't matter if its pulling in or pushing out. It still needs sufficient area to achieve the desired flow without to much pressure loss or back pressure.

In my experience convection plays a huge role even in watercooling. It seems to me unnatural to go against that.
