Glass blood - Evolv ATX build







I felt the need for a new project and absolutely love this case and have gotten the bug for tempered glass.

Specs are:

Phanteks Evolv ATX black tempered glass
Asrock Z270 Gaming K6
Intel I7 7700k pre de-lided
G.skill Trident Z 16gb 3200
EVGA GTX 1080 ti FE
Corsair RM750X with cablemod cable set Thanks Tom
Samsung 950 pro 256gb
Samsung Evo 850 500gb
Samsung Evo 850 250gb
Sound blaster Z

Full custom loop with
2 x 360mm radiators (magicool G2 Slim)
EK supremacy evo waterblock
EK full cover block + backplate
EK X-res 250
EK DDC pump
Primochill revolver fittings
Corsair ML pro 120 white led X 6
Corsair ML pro 140 white led X 1
Pastel red coolant

This will probably be a quick LOG as I can't wait to get it done

Absolutely stunning board love the detail and it's perfect for my build.

I'm really loving cablemods new modmesh cables personally I find nylon braid easier to work with and more pleasant to look at. Thanks again Tom for my cablemod voucher

The windowed back panel looks nice but you really have to be on your A game to make sure it doesn't look crap. I'm pretty happy with my attempt thou

White led ML pro fans with red corners, doesn't get better than that I hate coloured fans white light makes a system look so much cleaner in my opinion

Getting there but have hit a snag, the silicone insert I bought does not fit my tubing so I've had to order another so have to wait to do the tubing :/

Finished and I love it best case I have ever built in it looks fantastic. I'm thinking about adding some rgb lighting inside the back to highlight the cabkes and routing and the front just to light up the ssd and PSU as they are difficult to see.

Please don't!

The subtle look it has now is perfect. Simple is more. If you start throwing in RGB colouring it will ruin the contrast of the look as a whole. Personally, I don't look for things to stand out. I love the fact that SSD and PSU are hidden. At the end of the day, the most eye popping features are the tubing, res and waterblocks and you got them nailed. There is no need to add more lighting.
