Hey guys,

Late response but the build has taken longer than anticipated!

About 2 months ago I decided to make the jump from air cooling with a H60i to water cooling. After much procrastination I finally did some research on new cases and water cooling setups. It didn't take long to end up at the Enthoo Evolv ATX Tempered Glass. I then spent 2 weeks looking into builds people had done in them (which took me to here). Some final last minute changes were made with the help to some of the fellow members here.
I made 3 trips to my local PC store in a week to get the parts. Originally I thought it would have only taken a few days to build but I was wrong. It has ended up being a week and a half (tear down to all testing complete).

I went with a PE 240 in the front and a SE360 in the top (doing the fans in the roof mod). I spent a few hours with a dremel cutting out the channels from the top of the case and the rad bracket. After the multiple test fits the fans were able to fit. From there I started to re-assemble the case and start putting the components in. Once all the parts were in it was time to test fit and bending of pipes. That was done over a few nights after work. Finally the system was flushed and filled. First shot... NO LEAKS! thumb.gif

With the first stress test and the temps were horrible (almost 80 C). I spent the next 4 nights playing around with fans/speeds/and the case. I worked out that the case was not very free flowing. With the top and front panel off the temps dropped by 20 C. The solution ended up being turning the fans up a little more and sealing the top off with tin foil (something I saw on here). The temps became acceptable (there must have been a loop of hot air coming back down). So the other night I pulled the plastic off the glass and sat back and enjoyed the amazing look of a custom hard line water cooled PC with a glass panel.

I want to go with the same setup as pictured, EK XE 360mm up top with AP60s in push and an EK XE 360mm up front with AP60s in push behind the front cover. As far as I can see from the pics the front radiator does go down into the basement of the case. Maybe I have to go with EK's slimmer 360mm radiator up top to be able to fit the 360mm XE in the front?


Hey there.

I'm the guy with the build pictured there (here are a few more pics of the build http://imgur.com/a/aL9t2

Not sure if you got you're answer, as I see this thread got quite big - but I was wondering the same thing before starting the build.
I think I found someone that did manage to get 2 360s in there, but he had to mod the case somehow.

I decided to stick with 1 360 (a slim SE version, as there's not much top clearance) and a fatter 280 in the front. The front rad goes into the basement, but really don't see how you can fit a 360 there, with a 360 on top as well.

When using fans / radiator in top of Evolv all opening between motherboard compartment and top must be blocked to stop the air going through fans / radiator from circling back into motherboard compartment.

Vent area of Evolv ATX can be almost tripled by simply removing 4 screws, popping top off and setting it back on.

Black aluminum foil tape is wonderful for sealing this case. What are your water temps under load?

I saw your build on PC Wars and it inspired me to get an Evolv ATX and go watercooling. My build evolved into something original but the goal was for it to look like yours but red and black.

.
Vinyl tape of match or complementary color works well too
Anything works as long as all the openings are blocked off does the job.
I'm an air-head now, except for a be quiet! Silent Loop 280mm on my Luxe. blushsmiley.gif
Only reason I even tried it was I got it for a very good price, so if I hadn't liked it I could have sold for what I had into it. I've tried a few other AIO/CLC coolers .. all were CLC and I couldn't get them out of my house fast enough. But the Silent Loop 280 is nice and quiet. I just wish it would support a GPU waterblock. But I don't know if it's pump has enough power to push coolant through a full cover water block.

Tag.

So what if you remove the PSU cover entirely? Could you not fit a 360 there? I guess it would easily clear up space for a 280 or 240.

Currently i'm planning on building new this summer when Vega releases. I'd like to at least have 120x6 or more incase i want to through another GPU in the build down the road.

Is there anyway to move the top rad over some to clear a 120 on the exhaust?

Hi, everyone. This is my first-time water cooling so I bought the EK Extreme 360 kit. I'm planning to install the radiator in the front but I'm not sure where to put the pump. Do you guys have any recommendation on what is the best way to do my loop? I wanted the pump at the button compartment.

Well, you could mount it in the bottom chamber DIY, or get an EK top, attached it to the res and then mount the res to the radiator via a mounting bracket. The latter is what most people do.

Just drill some holes in the bottom and mount it. You may need to mount the pump sideways because the inlet tube goes straight up.

Hi all,

Surfing on the net searching top mods for the Phanteks Enthoo EvolV ATX Tempered Glass case to improve my rig temperartures finally I decided to go one step further and design mine, as many of you guys did before.

Using the same config, of course, I have to say that the gain is much noticiable, specially with configs with AIO kits or radiators in top, with a decrease of around 12º - 15º Celsius in my processor temperatures, and an overall improvement to the other components.

I would like to recommend Phanteks that they could offer as an accesory a similar top panel, in order to satisfy this case customers and potential ones, because, actually, in my opinion, this is the best good looking case in the market.

My rig specs:

i7 5820K @ 4,0 GHz
Corsair H110 GTX
Asus X99A - USB 3.1
16 GB RAM DDR4 Kingston Hyper X 2.667 MHz
SLI Geforce GTX 1070 Founders Edition
Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500GB
2 x Western Digital Red Nas 2 TB
Seasonic Platinum 1200w

These are the pictures of the build and the mod:
