Hello Evolv Shift X fans :)

I'm thinking to build my desktop based on Evolv Shift X, but I really want to use a motherboard ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Impact (https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-Crosshair-VIII-Impact/). Is a mini-DTX with one side dimension different than normal ITX motherboard. Can you guys (based on your experience) tell me if that motherboard will fit to Shift X? Thanks for help!

That board is different, from your link if you look at this image https://www.asus.com/websites/global/products/wodanwpswfp0wiug/img/compact/compact-left.png you can see that the DTX board is taller (in that image) which means that it will stick out 3 cm further towards the back of the case. In the Shifts this 3cm area is in order
- where the riser cable passes from front to back,
- where the 2.5 SSD/HDD drives are mounted,
- then the part of the internal frame that holds those drives
- then there is some space before you hit the rear panel which is used for cable management (or commonly fan controllers)

It's possible that you might be able to only use M.2 drives, cut the internal frame and route the riser cable around the back of the board (you might need a longer cable???), or you could just get the ITX.

Updated AI File!

Here's a link to a Google Drive folder which includes the raw .DXF file from Autodesk Fusion. Also has an .EPS file which opens using Adobe Illustrator. A lasercutter/waterjet place should be able to use the EPS file. The side panel was a couple of millimeters short for me, but not noticeable enough for me to get it remade. If anyone plans on using it, extend the top part 2-3 millimeters if you want.

The original dimensions are 471mm x 228mm.

I live in Silicon Valley and had one of the dozens of local shops do it lol. It cost me $60, materials+cut time. A few other CNC places that take online orders are eMachineShop, Xometry, Ponoko, and Big Blue Saw. Lasergist laser cuts, but last time I checked they only do steel. And I think they also have a size limit which won't fit a side panel. Ponoko has a lot of acrylic options.

Big Blue Saw does waterjetting, and offers instant online quotes. Here's prices from BBS for the single side panel. ~3mm thick 6061AL

Hey everyone! Finally finished my build, I was inspired by Sedici's post and his custom side panels sold me. I took his file and modified it a bit, adjusted it for the evolv shift x. Attached is my final mockup for the side panel, not 100% sure if I'm going to use both panels ( planning on cutting two ).

Just built my first system in the new air version of the case. It's working OK but get's a little warm (unsurprisingly).


Spec:
AMD Ryzen 3950x
EBGA RTX 2070 Super XC Ultra Black GPU

32GB Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB RAM
Asus ROG Strix X570-I Gaming ITX Motherboard
Corsair H801 V2 AIO
3 x NZXT AER RGB Fans
2 x NEXT Hue LED strips
1 x Samsung 850 Evo 250GB NVME SSD
1 x Samsung 860 Evo 500GB SATA SSD
1 x Samsung 860 QVO 2TB SATA SSD
Seasonic SGX 650W PSU



I'm really pleased with it. but I have a couple of issues. The GPU power cables are right up against the PSU. I might end up changing it for a shorted PSU however the smallest SFX PSU is still 10cm long so it will only clear one of the two PCI-E power connectors fully, it will still block the second. I saw these on ModDIY but when speaking to them about the cables it seems the low profile side is in the PSU end, not the GPU side so they are no good. The 2070 Super I have is a 6 pin and 8 pin card.


The other issues is the heat. Now I wasn't expecting completely chilly temps considering it's a 3950x but I was hoping for a bit less than the standard temps I'm seeing around 62c. Under loads I have seen peaks of 90c but it settles around 85c. a few degrees less than I was seeing before I changed the TIM for some Thermal Grizzly Kryonaught. I'm not sure what else I can do to reduce the temps without underclocking it.

^^ How is the EK-Quantum Kinetic FLT120 pump/reservoir combo? I may get one for a future compact build.

It's good. I use the DDC as it is more compact than the D5 obviously. You really need to pay attention to its overall thickness for small build.
I run it less than 75% speed, and it cools the GPU very well. It's 75C on the CPU at 4.2GHz 1.25v, while 62C on the GPU and 74C on the Memory Junction at 2015 MHz 1.2v. I don't use water temp sensor so Idk what the water temp is.

This is interesting.. May I know what is the IDLE & AMBIENT temperature for CPU & GPU ?

HTPC Dual SSD Bracket

Hello Evolv Shift owners! I've been looking out for a new case for my HTPC for a while. It's an older PC and doesn't have m.2 support so run's purely off 2.5" disks. I'd like to move to a raid 5 with three disks and keep the current setup of an ssd for the system disk.
Main question is, considering a 3.5" disk fits between the case and the shroud on the back, would the phanteks dual ssd bracket fit as well? Best I can find for the dimensions of the bracket are 3.3” x 1” x 4.7” (85mm x 25mm x120mm )(Wx H x D).

Love it, should have picked up the chromax fans though.

Awesome build, surprised that you've mange to fit the slim fan in the top cover. Guessing you've used adapters otherwise cables will stick in to the fan.

Makes no sense why they didn't make mesh panels for the Shift X?

Radiator Duct + mesh infill STL's

Hi All,

V2 of the duct is performing really well, takes much longer to reach saturation temp which I assume has something to do with increased flow?

The real bonus to this setup is the noise reducers on the pumps, they're barely audible now and gaming temps have improved, winning.

Attached are the STL's for both the dual pump duct (which requires a mini GPU) and the original version which is for a full length Asus strix card. Please double check the length of your card if you're going to use the full length card version of the duct, the measurement from top of radiator to the bottom of the notch is approx 45mm. I'm using 30mm rads.

I've also attached the mesh infills & 120 to 140 fan adapter which are essential if you want to do the twin fan setup like this. My 2700x is running 4.3ghz & the GPU is +380 and the water loop hasn't got passed 55 degrees.

Note I run my shift horizontal under the TV, it draws air over the I/O, down the gap in the front panel, through rad 1 and then ducted through rad 2. All exhaust is out the bottom of the case including the power supply exhaust. The result is a very cool mobo even when the water loop has maxed out.

Not sure how this would go if the fan direction was reversed and the case stood vertically, heat rises but you are dumping all the hot rad air directly onto the mobo, a slim 120 on the lid might solve that issue though? it just works so well horizontally.

Cheers

Probably Shift X doesn't suffer as much from GPU overheating since its designed for custom cooling. Some mods I did to improve cooling and be able to use dual AIO.
O it definitely suffers. I had a full water cooling set up in a shift X and my temps where terrible.

cheers radu,

all plumbed up and live, pending OS install. Not quite as planned out as it could have been, turns out the pump inlet/outlet is not what I had hoped (or even considered TBH), the GPU is being feed through into the outlet...shize. I'm assuming you can't just reverse a pump impeller and this means re routing the tubing, maybe I just roll with it and see how it runs??

Hi tubbed,

Hope, you mind me asking, but where did you get that shroud for the radiators? Is it 3D printed? Can you share?

Cheers!

Edit; Just realized that you already shared the plans.... Thanks!
