Description

I built this computer for living room VR action.

This Phanteks Evolv ATX TG has

  • a modded vented front and top
  • enough space to fit three 140's(!) into the front
  • a vertical gpu bracket.

Looks awesome man, how are temps now? Also did you make the panels yourself or purchase?

hey, thank you =). 8700k @ stock, non delidded and temps are around 50°C while gaming with ultra low rpm settings (silent). I was surprised how well those fans and the silent loop perform. Even the vertical gpu bracket has no negative impact on gpu temps. I have a local shop in my neighborhood where they do custom cnc jobs (www.gosumodz.com).

Nice touch with the panels it totally makes this case go from elegant to aggressive.

So lucky the vertical gpu mount is not out of stock lol. Just searching for some cnc shop near me so I can make some cut out to help the vent for this awesome case.

Very nice CNC mod on that Evolv case! Nice job! I wonder what are temp differences with that case wihtout CNC work and with CNC work... Also, on photo 17 : Is that factory dust mesh or custom?

Thank you =). Sorry, but I can't tell you the temp differences because I use different parts after modding the case. The mesh is custom. I am using a non-delidded 8700K @4.8 and it stays under 70°C while playing cpu demanding games like CIV VI. All fans are fixed at around 800 rpm. I used another front grill in the previous evolv-build and there was definitely a massive temp drop compared to the stock front cover and now with a vented top cover it should be even more airflow.

What headset are you using? I'm researching what spec of PC buid I need to handle HTC Vive using primarily with google tilt brush and other Art/Painting VR App that fit budget of not over 2500 usd.

Would be cool to know if your model fits my need or any adjustment you can recommend?

Sorry for my ignorant, I have zero knowledge about PC building :)

Hey, with this machine I am using HTC Vive+Deluxe Audio Strap and a wireless addon from TPCAST. I think a GTX 1070ti/1080 is a sweetspot for vr and a i7 8700k isn't really necessary. I think even with a budget of around 1300-1500$ you can build a powerful vr machine (intel i5/ryzen 5 + gtx 1070/1080). Maybe you should check out the oculus rift too. I am using a rift on my other computer more often because of the better controllers, but that's personal taste.

Hey ! Thank you so much. By the way, I went thru shops here in Bangkok and they can cover this build within 1700$ :

  • I7-8700
  • z370 Prime P ASUS (or should I use A?)
  • 1070Ti Gigabyte Gaming
  • Corsair vengeance 16 GB (8gbx2) bus 3000
  • SSD Samsung 860 M.2 250gb
  • HDD WD Blue 1 TB
  • FSP 750 W
  • Cooler Master MA610P RGB
  • Neolution Case

Other than VR, I will be using the computer for video editing and graphic design works. What is your opinion about this?

Many thanks in advance !

To utilize the full potential of the z370 chipset you may go with an i7 8700K? Other than that, the config seems fine, maybe the price is a little high(?).

And maybe you should go with a psu of well known, higher quality brands like seasonic, super flower, evga, be quiet, corsair etc.

Hi, That is a great mod for such a beautiful case. You tipped me over to do something similar with my computer, that`s been put on a back burner for a while. I think I found your thread and uploaded pattern on some other site, awesome and thanks for that. Could you please explain what mesh did you use and how did you fasten in to the panels? Cheers!

Can you explain how you were able to fit x3 140mm fans in the front?
