The performance on it is fine, I'm not sure what you are seeing in that review that would indicate otherwise. The only rad in that review that is more than a few percent better is the Nemesis GTX, which is considerably thicker and too wide to fit through the midplate opening without cutting it, and even then it might not fit.

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

Gotten the Enthoo ATX glass edition on Tuesday earlier this week in Singapore. Probably the first few countries that had it earlier.

I was thinking to embark on project Tiny with this case. This case pretty much easy to fit in 360mm radiator at the top. But the front may have a restriction if one has a d5 pump to put at the bottom.

Any reviews on the Bitspower Leviathan Xtreme rads? It looks like HWL rads.

Using a 280mm in the front actually looks better, it will line up the two rads front edges. Using a 240 or 360 in the front has the front rad mounted further back than the top rad, not as clean looking - plus the 280mm will outperform a 240, and you have excellent 140mm fans for the application already included with the case.

What about going thick 360 in the front (like a HWL SR2 360 MP specifically since it is very good with low speed fans) and a thinner 280 up top? something like a CE 280 or one of the thinner Alphacool 280 rads, and you could still re-use the excellent Phanteks fans from the front.

I went with the 360 in the front and I'm going to put the 280 up top coupled with the Phanteks fans. I've seen a build with this case where the person modded the top of the case right above the tray to accommodate the 140mm fans so they are hidden and out of the way.

Keep in mind that there is a major issue doing it that way that you will need to address. The case has a very restrictive top so you will need to block up all of the open areas that the 280 up there is going to leave. Otherwise you will do nothing but recirculate warmer and warmer air to the 280.

That mod you referenced makes the top rad completely useless. The fans have no room to work. In short.....don't do it.

This is a very good point I had not considered before, thank you smile.gif

So assuming 360 PE on top and 280 CE front, is that enough to cool an overclocked 5930K and a 980 Ti and still remain silent?

It is definitely enough rad space for that. Just don't cheap out on the fans, or buy them for the color rings. Stick with high quality fans - GT, Vardar, eLoop, Phanteks MP and the like.

Hey guys,

I'm getting the Evolv ATX (tempered glass) soon and was wondering exactly how thick a rad can be when mounted in the front.. I have my mind set on the XE 360 rad from EK, which is 60mm thick, so I would need at least 85mm (and 110mm for push-pull).

He mentions for the front the overall room available, so yes 110 should be workable.

one thing about this case is trying to keep itopen I think to show it of. I got the case thinking the radiator at tope would go up a bit so you would only see fans, or vice versa. Was disappoined when I realized post purchase how ti worked.. anyway, where there is a will there is way. If you dont mind "modding the case" you can flush fit the radiator up top with the fans in top of case. There is a little bitit more noise slightly but not bad. Unfortunately post this pic I had a major HW crash on the MB so couldn't tune fans further. 240 45mm in Front and 240 30mm up top.
