Description

Hi I would like to share my first mod build old Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV

I know the 7700k on B250 mobo is not the best combination but I had a great deal for the mobo £30 and perfectly match in to my vision. And the z270i ITX mobo is in use in my personal ITX build.

Also the GPU is used from previously build and the prices are going down now so will be upgraded later on.

This mod does not cost a lot final price was around £60 all together ( apart from dremel and cutting discs ) But I spent a lot of time just looked on the case and do some planning. And finally the work with full time job and family life took a lot. But I had a fun.. Just my MRS. want to be a CASE some times xD But its done now.

Hope you like it. Thank you for looking. XX

I'm drooling over that first screenshot with the cyan, the softer white you chose on the front compliments the lighting perfectly. Very cool case mod. Well done!

Damn, looking at this really makes me wish I had the willpower to get up off my *** and mod my own case

KralixUK submitter 5 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

go for it mate!!

XeroDahwn 1 point 7 months ago

I agree with everyone else. A Beautiful build. I am just not digging that logo in the front. It's killing the vibe of the rest of the case for me. I think the logo needs more designs on it to make it look a bit more busy. I also like that monitor. Great pick.

KralixUK submitter 5 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

thanks mate. I was worried. better less then too much. finally I am happy with resource . thanks

How much did moving the front panel out a bit improve airflow for the intake fans? Was thinking of getting a similar Phanteks case and putting a little more space between the chassis and front panel myself.

KralixUK submitter 5 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

I moved about 1cm will add any pictures Its very simple just put some nuts between the holders and the front panel.

_Roller_ 1 point 7 months ago

Yes I've watched videos on it before, just curious how much it actually improved temps.

KralixUK submitter 5 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

I have cut two additional holes so can not tell you difference between just move front panel. but this help a lot. there is no problem with airflow at all now

KralixUK submitter 5 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

or just save a bit more and get the new model looks awesome all ready but it cost a lot for me and there is NO need to be modded so less fan

Kisalida 1 point 7 months ago

AMAZING!!!!! This build needs to be featured for all the effort.

KralixUK submitter 5 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Thanks, but still is not a greatest. was planing to do I/O cover plus the rams are not the best looking.. But did not have a time and all ready spend A LOT OF time on it..

But Thank you!!

aud10_fr3ak 1 point 7 months ago

nice, though why didn't you get ram with heat spreaders. the gpu backblate is nice.

KralixUK submitter 5 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

+1

KralixUK submitter 5 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

I know. The GPU and RAM are frst on the list.

But to be honest CS go, Rocket league and LOL is running more then fine.

He did not plays any other games xD

KralixUK submitter 5 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

I do not play games this I build for my wife brother.

if I do play then WRC17 or NFS most wanted ( the old one )

I think you went a tad bit over the top with the modding. Some stuff like the window and the extra vents I would most certainly do myself, and the vanity cover you made is pretty nice for this specific case. The front is too cluttered for my taste, though, and the ROG emblem being everywhere is in the same boat. If you love it that's what matters most. I have no real hate for any mods, there's just a point where it gets cluttered but that's all just personal preference so i respect it.

I have the same SSD but I got mine for $53 on Amazon

KralixUK submitter 5 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

KralixUK submitter 5 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

thanks pal. don't worry pal running i5 6500 on z270i in my personal itx build

[comment deleted by staff]
KralixUK submitter 5 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

the 7700k giving more FPS with 1050 TI and I do not playing Games so 6500 is more then I need it.

And 7700k in stock is more then fine for gaming if would like to overclock it will need a better cooler when was clocked at 4.8GHz hit 85°C and that is too much for me.. I like to have it under 70°C under load..

[comment deleted by staff]
KralixUK submitter 5 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

The CPU giving 30FPS more in cinebench then the 1050 ti with 4670K clocked to 4.8GHz and as I said the GPU is planning update when prices gonna go more down..

But thank you very much for an information!!!

The CPU cost me less then 1050TI a year ago anyway xD xD
