Description

I was looking forward CES '19 for an Evolv Shift (thermal) update, but sadly there was none. So I decided to build it on my own.

  1. Lifted Mainboard by 4mm to increase the space between graphics card and board.
  2. Fan cutouts in front and rear for better airflow.
  3. Push/Pull Radiator in lower section for better cold air support in the upper.
  4. removed I/O Shield for better warm air flow off.

I decided to buy a RTX 2070 Mini to keep the lower section clean and having it more compact to the "airflow-tunnel in the upper and I've also managed to run the Aio tubings to the back for a "cleaner look.

Modding the front/rear is easy to do and the results are worth the effort, Temps are just +2 degrees above my other case (load). Although I havent tested all Fan push or pull configurations I'll leave it as installed.

Building took me 3! entire days, its defenitely no "easy-case" one can defenitely damage hardware while cable routing...

UPDATE: 18-01-2018:

A deeper view into the System revealt a good OC-CPU from the lottery and my graphics card is throtteling too early.

So I have to lookup the case again and push the temps further down without increasing noise level.

I ordered some parts already and doing some tests with the Fans - I also like to personalise the case a bit...

I completely agree but couldn't they use a font other than monotype Corsiva? maybe something fancier?

Ikr? The RAM itself is pretty unique, but they slap some basic MS Word looking font on it

It's like you write a crazy good book and then use Comic Sans for the title font

Interesting... I googled for some pics to look at the MS Word font again, and it seems that was an early sample font? Google's showing some sticks with the same font as the original Trident Z

Looks Amazing!

Check out my case mod. It should help you with the graphics thermals.

It triggers me that the top fans are not aligned, but this is still a beautiful case u made here!

As a Shift owner, I enjoyed the shot with the dremel maybe a little too much!
