Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX - Page 85

Its for 2 reasons. The first is as you mentioned airflow issues. You already have to work your fans extra hard due to the airflow restriction, putting a thick radiator in there is really going to just make a bad situation worse. The second reason is looks. The 30mm rad + fans will already hand down about to the top of your CPU socket, a 45mm + fans will look silly.

Ok I'm now set on using the 30mm rad, would you say it's gonna be helpful to have the rad mounted to top panel of case without the rad tray. I mean i really like to use the tray but if it's gonna be better look wise and performance wise I guess I can do that.

Only if you decide to get a modded top panel with more ventilation. Otherwise you will be choking your top rad.

Edit:
You mentioned it's probly not a good idea. You mean not a good idea to have 45mm rad on top, 30mm rad on top due to airflow issues or you mean something else?

I've answered your exact question or near it a few times in this thread which is why I said to search. The 45 rad on top will choke for sure, I know this from first hand experience. If you run push pull without modding the top brace you will have no clearance even for a cpu block or come close to no clearance and half of what you will see is rad. As for the 280 going in the front. I have a 280 alphacool and it does not fit in the front and it is ut 60 because it is too wide.

If I buy a modded top panel (from modmymods when it comes available), would it be better to not use the top rad bracket altogether? Where would you mount the rad in that situation? Do you have to mod anything up top if you don't use the rad bracket?

You would have to make your own mounting bracket. Its only work it if you need the room for another rad (+modded top).

Just to share. Decided not to wait get it done myself. Did some measurements and done up the drawing before sending the TOP panel to the metal workshop to get it cut.

Here is the end results.

Had ordered perforated metal sheet will spray it black and place it under the panel holes.

that looks pretty nice!! Hope to see more pictures once it's done!

Would you mind sharing details about where you got it done, how much it cost, etc?

Also what are the 8 small holes for?
post #850 of 1047
I am from Singapore. Gotten it done up in my local metal works workshop. The holes are meant to secure the metal perforated metal sheet which is planned to be mounted underneath this TOP panel
