This whole thing is a trainwreck, and I have a very hard time believing the integrity of it.
Probably in the same bizzaro world where CLCs with awful inefficient rads, pumps that don't move enough liquid and rely on the loudest fans possible to operate are considered viable solutions.

was at work but just got home and took the side panel off and temps slowly started dropping at idle. Sooo basically a air flow issue.

Did you isolate the rad? If not, your flow issue is likely the fact that the exhaust from your radiator is feeding the intake of your rad rather than leaving the case. This would mean that your rad gets nothing but warm air going to it that gets progressively warmer as you run the system. Changing intake fans will do nothing to help this. It is a quirk with the Evolv ATX.

I'm not touching this one, even with your barge pole. tongue.gif

The Evolv 'quirk' is easily resolved by blocking any air leaks between intake and discharge sides of panel. wink.gif

Are you saying that you don't see this ending well? tongue.gif

We nearly have the same set up,i'm interested on the h115i over the evo 212 too.Bought a 750d case so have the space to install the cooler.Let me know how everything goes for you before i pull the trigger.

How is having a 750D anything even remotely like having an Evolv ATX? The 750D has it own set of issues, which are nothing like the Evolv's.

So how would one fix the poor top radiator heat displacement with the evolv case? besides having to take off the top portion of the case. I guess I'm asking would I have to find a way to isolate the open spaces to the sides of the radiator to stop it from blowing back into the case?

I have the evolve-itx case and ran in to a similar problem with the h100i. While the top of my case did have quite a few screws and doesn't just pop off like my enthoo pro, it was worth it to take the top off. I used tape to cover the unused holes to prevent re-circulation of the exhaust air. The tape should go from the top down so the pressure of the chamber doesn't blow off the tape if the adhesion wears out.

I also recommend replacing the corsair fans while you are at it, if you can. Just switching from the stock fans to some phanteks fans made a significant reduction in noise and a bit better temps with no change in settings.

That pretty much explains it, but on the ATX it is easier to simply slide the radiator bracket out and seal. The 3M ssound deadening material works really well - https://www.amazon.com/Sound-Deadening-Self-Adhesive-Sheets-Black/dp/B00AI1TPMA/

To remove the top on Evolv ATX there are only 4 screws to remove; 2x from back of case and 2x from front of case behind the front cover panel. Then the top un-clips just like the front panel.


We want to stop the warmed air coming out of radiator from getting back into component area. Anything that will stay in place over the holes in radiator bracket stopping the air from getting below it will do .. from cardboard or pieces of paper taped in place to fancy material like sound dampening.
