Make sure none of the AIOs is thicker than 27mm or both will not fit. Like somone said AIO gpus are expensive but if you keep looking you can find some deals. I got an amazon warehouse deal MSI Sea Hawk X 1080 for 570E which is not bad considering the cheapest 1080 I could find was 500 and most of the reasonable cards were 550.You can consider cracken G12 if you have a cheap AIO sitting around like me, I belive it will require some trimit of that bracket though but you can't see it anyway.

I'd love for Phanteks to release a 2.5 card slot bracket for the GPU that would be nice for this case since many of you guys had to modify the bracket a bit.

I had far more room with the fans pointing towards the glass but the GPU temps were just so bad I had to turn it to the recommended configuration.

So unfortunately the only way to do the push pull is with the fans facing the glass but like you said, the temps are terrible. Right now I have the glass off. Going to try and cut a square in it the size of the 1080ti so I can reinstall the glass but still have proper airflow. Because of how I have the case positioned, I don’t really care about the glass being off. Only worried about dust and I guess sound at this point.

Still can’t do a push/pull with a 240 with the Strix. The backplate can’t be facing the glass in this scenario.

Better just remove the top fan and do push pull only at the bottom instead of cutting the glass or install slim fans if it helps. My temps are around 30 CPU/GPU at idle and 57CPU and 61GPU in Shadow of War room temp 25C (max detauls) but for some reason I still have a need of more tweaks and don't know what else to do. The only thing I decided on is to replace the included fans with PWM fans.

It will fit as long as the radiators have a max thickness of 27mm.

Can't comment about the air cool video card/bigger AIO CPU cooler, but I can comment about dual AIO. I was getting a rock solid 58-60c during benching/gaming for the video card (GTX 980) and anywhere from 65-100c for CPU (4690k), just depends if your gaming/benching. Haven't done any gaming/benching with the 8700k so cant comment on that yet.

I’ll just say that if you mostly use the pc to play games, I’ll recommend an AIO cooled gpu, especially in the smaller Shift.

I have two AIOs (H75 radiator, each with one ML120 fan) for CPU and GPU, and that works well for gaming - GPU stays under 60. For CPU intensive tasks, the cpu will get up to high 70s.

8700K arrived today after much debating while stock was up and down:D so getting closer to the finish line.

How likely is it that phanteks will release a V2 of this case? Have they ever released a revised case of one of their other cases? Case looks so nice if only they fix the few details mainly changing the tempered glass panel near the video card to an acrylic one with breathing holes to mount the GPU with fans facing the holes.

EDIT: Also, how good is the PCI riser cable? I saw a video of a Thermaltake case that the reviewer claimed you'd have to get an aftermarket PCI riser cable because the one that came with that case was not one that would utilize the full power of the PCI E lane.

Phanteks recently updated the Evolv ITX to a new version with updates like tempered glass, better internal layout (imo) and some other small changes so don't put it past them to revise and release a new revision.

I personally think modifying the case with acrylic panel to vent an air cooled GPU would be a downgrade from what it comes with now. They've specifically said the case is designed around watercooling and from what I see it does fairly well at that despite it's limitations. I've got a FC block on my GTX 1080 running at stock clocks for an FTW2 and the block looks great through the side panel, temps sit around 45 under stress test load.

It will never perform as good as a mid-tower with clean uninterrupted airflow or tons of rad space. It is a shame though cause it's cool to trade away a bit of those last few fps from overclocking in favor of a tower that looks good in lots of living spaces, but I understand some people value 100% performance over all else and I think for that use this case layout won't cut it.

Sidenote, this thing gets a lot of hate from the SFF community because apparently your PC needs to be smaller than a shoebox or it sucks lol

Edit: forgot to mention that in my case the riser cable auto detected at pcie-x16 and runs perfect under any load, even with the bracket reversed to see the GPU block

The riser cable seems to be of decent quality and shielding. I have dealt with Thermaltake, Lian Li riser cables and Phanteks has the best quality so far.

I don't see a revision coming any time soon. If they where to do ventilated glass it would need to be plexi most likely since ive never seen ventilated tempered glass. You can still mount the gpu with the fans facing the glass although the temps suck they should be tolerable and not cause any performance issues. If its a problem go with an aio gpu or go full water as that's honestly what these cases look to be designed for from the ground up.
