Description

Notes:

Originally used a Hadron Air. PSU was too loud for the environment I was in.

Updated to Evolv ITX with a Corsair CX600. 2 days later PSU fan started grinding so it's been sent in for RMA. Upgraded to an AX760 for 0db fan setting on idle/low load and less cable clutter.

When the CX600 replacement shows up it will go into my future home media server build.

Update:

CPU Cooler - Noctua NH-D15

Storage - Moved 1TB drive to NAS. Added Samsung 850 EVO 500GB.

Case Lighting - One of the LED strip cables came loose and shorted against a metal part of the case. The lighting kit is garbage now. Removed but hoping to pick up a NZXT Hue+ soon.

Absolutely love this case!

flip the CPU cooler so it is exhausting out the back of the case. I'd suggest purchasing another fan to put in the back as exhaust, not much air flow.

The fan on the cooler is currently exhausting, pulling air through the heatsink. Should I have it on the front of the heatsink pushing air through it instead? I've read that push is better than pull, but since my RAM is high profile there were clearance issues.

I do have a spare NF-S12 I could use as a rear exhaust, so I'll keep that in mind. Thanks. :)

Love the evolve, I wish they had released the atx version earlier - I would've bought it instead of my s340. Suggestion: double up on cpu fans if youre on oc.

The evolv series definitely is great. I may double up on cpu fans in the future, but having a push fan installed causes clearance issues with my high profile RAM.

Just curious, why did go with the GTX 760? For less $$$ you could have had a 970 or is this a refresh of an old build?

Refresh. I already had the 760 a few months before the 900 series launched.

I'm in the same situation, I've an Asus 760 and 2 500gb samsung evo ssd. I'm thinking about building a pc around them. any ideas?

I'm pretty sure he bought this when he first built the PC and it was before the 900 series was released
