Built this machine mainly for light to medium gaming, I mostly play FPS and some RPG. I also occasionally do some illustration and graphic work (Photoshop, Lightroom).
I wanted to try doing a themed build and went with my love of Gundams. The Phanteks Evolv Shift was a perfect match, but was quite challenging to work with.
Issues: 1. Cable Management - pretty much a given for a tight case like the Evolv Shift 2. SFX PSU - it's true that the case can get picky. The TT Toughpower SFX did not fit well with the case's 90-degree pass-through power cable, so I had to flip the psu with the fan blowing into the case 3. GPU thermals - this is the craziest part. 3.1. For my 1060 FE, best position was to have the fan facing the inside of the case (vs the glass-side) 3.2. With the case vertically-oriented, the best source of cold air would be the bottom 3.3. Typical position of the AIO radiator is at the bottom. However, this restricted cold air intake, which drastically affected the GPU (would always be >80 dcelcius when loaded). Relocating the radiator to the side and having an unrestricted intake fan at the bottom lowered the temp to around 75-78.
