Took too long to fix the Evolv's airflow issues imo but I'm glad it appears they finally have. Everything else looks nice too

Yup after mounting this aio onto my 1060 ill likely never want to go back to a air cooled GPU, unless someone makes a really good one that stays under 70c at all times.

Then this probably isn't the case for you unless you can move to 2.5" drives, you are correct. Those extra drive mounts are sold separately anyway.

On the other hand, a real loop on a server is just going to be a huge no, at least in my opinion. The point of a server is to "just work" and be easy to maintain when it stops working. That means there should be no overclocking, and since even TR2 can be cooled on air stock, there's no reason for water at all anyway. It's more maintenance for no gain.

Can do what you want to, obviously, but putting water in a server, especially data storage where you probably care about it, is stupid. At least to me.
All valid, thanks for the input.

The draw for me is the dual system. I think they finally implemented a solution that actually looks good. Full ATX gaming PC with a min-itx up top. 6 HDDs up front and 3 SSD on the back panels.

I was looking at AIOs for their simplicity. Not sure I want to go full custom loop just yet. Ideally a 120 AIO up top with the mini-itx and a 240/360 AIO up front.

Hardware Canucks put up their review already, going to wait for a few more to come out before I decide to buy anything.

Whats the point of a dual system tho? With all the cores amd and intel have been throwing at us you can do everything you want on one pc. I know a few streamers who have had and since ditched dual streaming PC idea, its just too much hassle for hardly any benefit.

Plex media system that doesn’t use up my current CPU for transcoding etc. Also I have the hardware. Maybe in my next upgrade cycle I would drop back to one, but not looking to spend a bunch of money for a full upgrade.

Fair enough i guess, i figured most people had a little htpc for that living in their media center.

This is a really nice case but man they really should have diffused those front LED's, that looks so incredibly cheap to be able to pick out each individual light source. Even crap cases from the likes of raidmax do this.

Not quite sure what you mean but I'm currently using mATX and I want to stay on air and get back the ability to run two large, 3 slot GPUs. Most towers support 3x 120mm or 2x 140mm intakes - this is one of the few that supports 3x 140mm

I disagree. Most boards have 1 or maybe 2 m.2 slots but a lot of SATA ports. still, the Z series chipset only has 6 ports - you're going to need another controller if you want to fill this case up. SSDs are probably going to see a big price cut over the next year. I'm passing off my smaller drives to my kids and plan to only add 2TB SSDs going forward.

I saw a quote that they updated the mATX version recently and have no plans to update it any time soon.

That enhances my point even further lol, do you really want to look at some mismatched ssd's you had lying around on the back side of your case? Now you will say "but you can hide them in the doors on the back", ok sure now you just want to look at your cables lol?

Rear panel glass makes no sense, no one will be able to convince me otherwise. They should have put a hinged piece of steel there and lowered the price of the case.

Hope reviews show that the revamped case has improved airflow. Love this case, but hard to justify buying it after just getting a CM MC5 last year ; much better WC support though.
