Phanteks Evolv ITX too hot?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP
Hello guys, I currently have a Phanteks evolv itx case, which used with a 212 evo x and worked pretty decent ...
 Now for reasons of aesthetics, switch to liquid cooling (Lepa Aquachanger 240).
I currently use an i5 7500 and an RX 480 Strix OC

I have noticed that when I stress the cpu, the top cover does not heat so much, 
but when playing I suppose that the combination of the high temperatures of the video card plus the cpu,
increase the temperatures considerably inside the case, which worries me a little, because the top panel of the case gets too hot.

 I live in a relatively warm country, and the temperatures of the pc at gaming are not too bad (I guess)... 
(no more than * 47-50 degrees in the cpu * and 70 degrees in the gpu).

I know that the case is sealed, and the air flow is very bad in this case, because of this, the fan I have in the back, 
I turned it to insert air to the case, so that it helps the radiator dissipate the heat and has helped a bit.
(The radiator is the only one taking out air from the case)

Apart from this, the 200mm fan that comes from the factory in the front of the case, 
I guess it is not enough to put air inside the case, so I am thinking of a more powerful fans to put them in the front pannel.
What fans do you recommend?
What do you recommend me to do ??
I also thought about making modifications to the case and putting a grill on top, to help the radiator to draw the air.

I was also thinking of changing the gpu to a 1070 founders, but I'm afraid that because of the type of dissipation the video card gets too hot.

I really love the case, but... :/

I'd get another case. The Evolv is all looks, functionality a distant after thought. Jay from Jayz2Cents had a full on loop in the ATX varient with bad temps.

 

The Thermaletake V1 is a nice looking mini itx case to consider, especially in white.

If your willing to spend some more cash, you can get a modded top panel replacement for the case with mesh cutouts.  Also do the spacer and tape mods to the case to increase the intake and prevent air from splashing back down from the top panel.

I'd switch to the Define Nano S personally, the Thermaltake V1 is also a good option

When I was planning to build a ITX gaming pc, i was thinking in the V1 and bitfenix prodigy ITX, both looks good, but the V1 its too small and you cannot put a 240mm inside I think...
and the bitfenix, you cannot see your system inside GG, I was planning to switch to the NZXT MANTA, but today I buyed two SP140 for intake in the EVOLV, and the difference is juge!!
almos 10ºC drop.
