Firstly.... that's a metric tuck fon of pages to get through. I've dabbled in this thread many times but not through every page.

There's a lot of good info, and I've registered just to say thanks to those putting up first had experience and advise.

I've had this case for a while now and I've luckily found myself in the posession of a EK 240 kit (RGB), watercooling has been my long term goal for my rig but that initial outlay for the components has prevented me from moving forward.
I've bought a GTS 360 to go up top, I'm just waiting until payday so I can buy a few more fittings and a GPU block. I'm reluctantly going soft tubing as they're the fittings I've got, but hardline will be done at some point.

So my set up will be:

PE 240 Front
GTS 360 Top (panel rested)
EK block for 1080FTW2
EK Supremacy CPU block
EK Rev 140


Now that the Evolv X is out, there's little point in getting my panels cut or doing it myself, I'll make up the cost by selling the x62 and the case, throw a few extra notes in and I've got an even better looking case that I don't have to mod (I hope).

This is one thing I've not seen whilst scanning all 198 pages, would be interesting to see if people have done it, I've thought about it and running it out back or through the top... but that defeats the point of wanting it on the front I/O.


Again, big thumbs up to most of the solid posters on here.

Take a look at the Phanteks GPU block. I swapped out a couple of my EK blocks for these. Similar performance, but nicer looking with a good RGB setup, and better build quality than the EKs. You can also use the EVGA backplate with the Phanteks with no issues.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

I have done, it's not compatible with the ICX cards, and I've seen nothing on Google to say otherwise. Plus the price difference between EK/WC and Phanteks is massive.

I've read that the HK IV offers margionally better performance, but I'm just not sold on it asthetically (if I where to virtically mount, I might be swayed... but I'm not), so I'll stick with EK's offering. I prefer the squared off and milled logo look of EK's terminal block.

I'm that eager to crack on I feel like sticking the rest of it on plastic and starting as soon as it arrives haha.


EDIT: That HK IV is growing on me... been reading through the HK Club thread.

Case is great. It looks amazing, quality is very high, building in it is a breeze, easy to use multiple radiators (I use 2x360) and temps are very good for me. The only minus are those covers for cables. They look nice when case is empty, but when you need to put through 24pin it doesn't look as nice as with cases that have rubber grommets.

Hay everyone.
Firstly to everyone who has posted photos of their rig, all i can say is wow!!!!

Now, i know this has been asked before but does anyone have an accurate cad drawing of the front and top panels?
Am busy working on the modding i would like to do to mine so i was hoping someone might have done one already.

TIA

Hi everyone

is it possible to put a 360 / 45mm radiator on the top and a 240 of 45 / 60mm in front, without removing the door underneath?
