I was on air first with a Bequiet DarkRock pro 3 and i wanted more. I saw few Watercooled phanteks Evolv itx but they were to jam pack and not so clean / stream line looking. So here my build hope you like it.

Much like @philphaser I am not the biggest fan of soft tubing, but WOW you pulled it off amazingly. The amount of thought and effort put into this build really shows! Hands down one of the cleanest executions of a watercooled Evolv that I have seen!

Look at those tubing runs, well done sir! Great part selection, full custom water loop, stellar presentation AND you still managed to keep it under $2,000! That more than earns my +1!

Great build, love the coolant color that contrasts with the BLACK! +1

philphaser 12 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

Not a big fan of soft tubing, but this right here is a win!
Green sleeved cables would be a great addition!

Counter-strike player? I have that same keyboard and mouse, but i'm looking into hydro-dipping mine.

Dubonfire submitter 2 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

I rarely play CS-GO. but hydro dipping seen right but how will the do that. I will change (WASD) keycap for green one. The zowie is the best mice i ever used.

Qbuo 1 point 43 months ago

Go to a place that offers hydro-dipping, although less common outside the states, alot of places will do it. You can remove the case from the keyboard and have it look like any material/color you like.

love it!

I still got few upgrade for the build

Green and Black EK Logo to cover the asus gold Heatsink. I will add 1 green sticker of some sort on the video card backplate and 1 on the side of the tower. The top of the case will be modded to improve air flow (mnpctech mesh grill) . I might add an exhaust fan.

philphaser 12 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

Not an intake fan to support the top radiator? Aren't his fans pulling air from inside the case?

Dubonfire submitter 2 Builds 3 points 43 months ago

there is 2 fan on the front radiator pushing the air inside

The temperature at idle are 2-3 degree over room temp. with the fan a 800 rpm .

philphaser 12 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

Wow! That is terrific! And under load?

Davver99 1 point 42 months ago

Have you just used distilled water and some dye? I like that colour

Dubonfire submitter 2 Builds 1 point 42 months ago

distilled water and mayhems pastel green

Dude I cant see this one either! Did your room mate steal this one too? Nice cables and cooling supplies btw. Neat monitor too

wakawaka123 1 point 40 months ago

great build! I've just started to plan an evolv mini itx build too, I noticed you don't have the midplate, would it still fit with your front radiator? thinking of getting this (http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/Black-Ice-Nemesis-Radiator-GTS-240-XFlow-Black_44942.html) but not sure if it will fit.. thanks for your help!

Dubonfire submitter 2 Builds 1 point 40 months ago

here the one i used.

1.i'm pretty sure they ship in UK just check. Canadian currency is in the drain right now so i'm sure you can get hose radiator for dirt cheap at the moment 39.08 pound is over 80 Canadian dollar and those radiator are 55 Canadian dollars so 2.They are slimmer by 2-3 MM than the black ice 3. The inlet & outlet of the radiator are really important and they are opposite to the one i used. 3 . Plan your flow/tubing route carefully in a mini itx it's the most important thing you just don't want to have to return part are do stupid tubing route that look silly. 4. i'm not sure it's gonna fit due to the right side tickness your swiftech 240x pump and stuff you are using at the moment if i was using your 240x i would juste put a 120 (not crossflow) in the back and it's will be enough even for a 980ti. 5. Me it's a bit overkill. running fan at 800 Rpm with a slow pump speed for the less noise possible 6. lastly I had to gut the top pannel and put mesh because the computer was overheating due to the lack of airflow in the top and the fact that i dont have exhaust fan. i 7. if you have any question feel free to ask Happy holidays

Rammoshe 1 Build 1 point 40 months ago

This is so nice Min doing a similar build, but with other radiators, I wonder how your pump/res looks like? I would love to see closer pics :D

dditty 1 Build 1 point 32 months ago

Awesome build man. I'm thinking of building a custom loop in an Enthoo Evolv ITX as well, so I'm wondering if you have any tips? Right now I'm thinking I'll want a 240m rad on the top with a couple of fans exhausting up, and at least one other 120/140m rad on the exhaust or another 240m rad on the intake which I think is what you have here?

With a 240m rad on the front were you still able to mount your reservoir somehow? And my follow-up question is how many mounting spaces would be left for drives? I would like to be able to mount one 2.5"'and one 3.5" drive, but only one 2.5" ssd might be ok with an m.2 I guess. Ideally I would be able to also add an NZXT Hue+ too. Is there enough room?

Dubonfire submitter 2 Builds 1 point 31 months ago

the components placement on my itx build is optimal. short tube route & 2 crossflow rad. temp are low even with low speed fan (1000 rpm +/-).


I had to gut the top panel and put mesh grill because it was heatsoaking.

I use 2 ssd stick together with 3m tape. but M.2 is great. Forget HDD on a mini itx the pump is located down there and its full of cable cause i use extension for everyone of them. ideally you buy special short length cable (cablesmods, lutro custom etc. )

nzxt hue probably fit but its tight

I just bought this case in white. Your loop is the closest to what i have planned except i want 280mm xflows. Looks awesome!
