how did you do the mod for the top fans and radiator ?

What do you need to know? Fans above the radiator?

Has anyone that's put the fans above the radiator bracket recorded their temps before and after doing so?

So many people say not to do it because it kills your temps, but as far as i can tell (without actually having the case), the air still has to pass through the same vents, so wouldn't restriction be the same?

Maybe it'd be more obvious if I had the case in front of me, but I don't fully understand why it's that bad for temps.

Air is a fluid. You can only cram so much of it into a given volume. Not to mention fighting against it's own turbulence. Slam a 360 rad up there and you are creating a nightmare scenario of resistance. The top cavity acts as a buffer against that. Without that, the air has nowhere to go but back into the case or even back through the radiator.

What @paskowitz said. thumb.gif As beautiful as the Evolv is, it does not have much top venting. This has been explained in post #496 with links to more information
http://www.overclock.net/t/1598825/phanteks-enthoo-evolv-atx/480_20#post_25910134

For comparison:
A 240mm radiator (2x 120mm fans) has 288sq cm of finned radiator area
A 280mm radiator (2x 140mm fans) has 392sq cm of finned radiator area
A 360mm radiator (3x 120mm fans) has 432sq cm of finned radiator area

Im interesting in getting one of the angled slotted top covers, watching intently, how will the cut be treated afterwards? or just left bare alumnium?

Not sure how thick the pump section of h320 is?

If you're only going with one rad I would put in the front if you can work the tubing runs OK. You'll be pulling cool air over the rad and you've then got the all the options on rear and top mounts to balance out exhaust as you need.

I have mine this way - GTS360 - as I only watercool my CPU.

 

I thought mounting a GTS 360 up front will interfere with the two HDD brackets in the bottom chamber?

It will. You have to remove that bottom HDD Mounting Bracket for any 360mm Radiator to work.

Also will be getting one of those top panels (no matter the design, they all look cool to me smile.gif + the airflow benefits).

Thanks to all the info in this thread i decided on the Enthoo Evolv ATX case and what to do with it.

I figured id add a few photos to show what I've done and hopefully it can help others also.


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
At work we have a water jet cutter (not something available to everyone but what i used).

Materials

Aluminium perforated sheet (Ebay)

Black spray paint (Plastikote)

Metal Epoxy Glue.

.............................................................
The drawing office kindly set this up for me to use with the water cutter. (Sizes may help others do the same)



The water jet cut out the holes



Sanded the edges lightly



Sprayed my perforated sheet black



Trial fitted it all using double sided sticky tape

Glued the perforated sheet in place.



Masked it all off and sprayed the perforated sheet and cut edges to blend it all in.





Also for others wanting to know Phanteks were very helpful and reasonable in providing a spare top cover. (I live in Scotland and wanted a spare in case this all went horribly wrong.)

"The top panel for the Enthoo Evolv ATX AG would cost €30,- including shipping. If you agree, we will prepare the payment details to process your request.

Best,
Phanteks Team"

Wow - this looks great! I will probably try to blatantly copy replicate this if/when I end up doing this mod for better ventilation. @BigRed1987 - can I ask where you sourced the perforated aluminum sheet?

Just popped in to say this thread has been very informative (if exhaustively long) as I begin my Evolv ATX build. Got the case three days ago and the rest should be delivered tomorrow. Can't wait to start my build and see how it looks/performs!
