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.
- Lifted Mainboard by 4mm to increase the space between graphics card and board.
- Fan cutouts in front and rear for better airflow.
- Push/Pull Radiator in lower section for better cold air support in the upper.
- 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...
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...
