Great Case

Pros: Pretty lights, great space and lay-out; easy to build and reasonably good documentation. Arrived in good shape

Cons: Pricey, but I got this as a birthday present from my sons. About the second or third time I opened the case, the side LED strip was pinched by the right-side door and one of the connecting wires on the short 3 pin cable broke/came loose/was poorly attached or whatever and the LED went out. E-mailed the company, which responded right away, and they said they would sent out a new cable. Almost a month now and no cable. I also asked if they had a wiring schematic of the case (it can get a bit confusing as to what gets connected to what) but no joy; they have none???

Other Thoughts: If you paid for the light show and are willing to live with half of them out and dead to the world and you are willing to throw your money away, this is a good way to do it.

Manufacturer Response:
Hello Robert,
We are sorry to hear about the issue you have with your new Evolv X case. Please follow up with support@phanteksusa.com to get the tracking information for your replacement part. Usually a few days at most in the mail and the package should be delivered. As for a wiring schematic, the user manual details each cable of the case on pages 13, 21-23. If you need something other than this, you would need to be specific in what exactly you are looking for., We hope your cable has already arrived or arrives shortly. Please reach out to us if any further help is needed.

Epic case!

Pros: Aesthetically this is the best looking case on the market and was extremely easy to build in. Plenty of room for all of my components and the cable management system is the best I've ever dealt with. The lighting is awesome and can be attached to an addressable header on your motherboard to sync with RGB software.

Cons: None....well it is expensive, but I knew what I was getting into.

A very nice platform to build your masterpiece

Pros: Top quality. Hinged doors with rubber seals, heavy gauge aluminum exterior, plenty of space for cables, fan hub, excellent RGB, decent airflow, comes with 3 nice 140mm fans. Easy assembly/Disassembly and access to everything for cleaning. Glass tinted just the right amount. Plenty of room for radiators.

Cons: Airflow could likely be improved a bit with maybe a larger vent at the top, but overall it's pretty good.
Just throw in the vertical rider cable, it comes with the bracket...might as well.

Other Thoughts: If you really want a nice machine to be proud of, this is the case to go with. Great quality and worth the price in my opinion.
Lots of flexibility. Very sharp, classy and modern appearance.

Forget about the rest

Pros: - Easy to build in. Phanteks carefully though about the whole process of building a computer, and they did what they could to help you bring your hardware to life.

- Great RGB! If you don't want to overspend on a set of 6 RGB fans to brighten the interior, this case will save you from that. The RGB in it is not overly done, and brings a tad of class to the looks of your system.

- Excellent cable management. Zippers and panels that open and close to hide that clumsy cable management of yours are here to stay.

- You're able to have a mini ITX system on the top grid, if having 2 systems in a case turns you on for whatever reason.

- Mount your graphics card vertically.

- Side TG panels can be open without taking them off (although you can if you want).

Cons: - Aside from the RGB trend, many people are more interested in building a Micro/Mini system nowadays. This case won't be for you if you fit the description.

- Although you are allowed to mount a Mini ITX system on the top grid, you need to purchase separately the accessory to do so.
The same applies if you want a cable to mount your graphics card vertically. Being a pricey case, those two accessories might as well be packed with everything else. Note that the price is not a con, it simply rightly reflects the quality they've put into the case.

- To have the Mini ITX system, I suppose you'd need a special power supply to drive it, or even 2, though I have no idea how you'd manage the latter.

Other Thoughts: I've been using Corsair cases for a long time now. I was between the Evolv X and the Corsair Obsidian 500D SE for my new build, but after putting up my rig and seeing the final result, I'm happy to have chosen Phanteks. The RGB is great, with a set of presets that you can choose from by the press of a button, the TG looks classy, and cable management is neat and easily done. If you've come across this case in your search, you might as well stop here and buy it. I'm very picky and finicky in a way that bothers even me, but I can wholeheartedly recommend the Evolv X. As of March, 2019, this is likely to be the best you'll get out there in this form factor. Well done Phanteks, you've done it.

Hello Igor,
Thank you for your well written review of your experience with your new Evolv X.
You slightly mentioned about the dual system feature of the case. You are correct in that you will need a "special" power supply. Our Revolt X is just that. You can run two systems independently of each other thanks so the each set of 24-pin and 8-pin motherboard cables.

My Favorite Case So Far

Pros: - VERY easy to build in. Literally the easiest experience I've ever had building a PC.
- Good temps, I threw in a third 140mm fan for the front and hooked it up to the controller, was very easy.
- Good "extras" (e.g. watercooling ports, dual system, etc.) that don't detract from normal PC building experience
- Amazing Side panel design
- Good fan controller
- Great LEDs (the strip is mesmerizing)
- Great accessories box (screw box, extra cables and stuff, all very neat and high quality)
- Extremely good build quality

Cons: - PSU shroud height is minimal, with no mesh on top of shroud in case you want to mount PSU facing upward (I wanted to).
- Cable cover flaps are kinda weird, but I guess they work.
- Latching system for the back panel flaps are a little wonky sometimes, requires force / pressure to secure.

Best case I have EVER used.

Pros: -Incredible build versatility
-Well made with great materials
-it looks amazing
-excellent craftsmanship
-solid thermal performance for a Closed front case
-Excellent users manual
-well packaged
-thoroughly well designed and engineered cable mgmt system

Cons: No big let downs here but...

Mounting SSD's to the door locations can put some strain on the SATA and Power cables. Attention during that install process is vital.

Maybe add a 90-degree USB-type-c connector for the Front panel, maybe 1-2 ssd mounting sleds for the "optional" locations, and it has no HDD activity LED.

Other Thoughts: This was a pure pleasure to build in. It was easily the best case for cable management I have ever seen. I think it is worth the price and I have no issues recommending it to anyone who wants a premium case. Phanteks has done a great job on this with an eye for detail and it includes a lot of little things that go a long way. for example. the built in Velcro ties. the small tackle-box style spare parts box, the cable-less removable front panel. water-cooling ports, a superb colored Photo user manual, built in Fan controller, built in RGB controller, included Graphics card anti-sag bracket. etc... each of these things may seem minor but adding them together, and the others I didn't mention, show that this was a well thought out product. Is it perfect? No, but it is REALLY close.

Nice Case

Pros: Built quality is excellent
Cable Management is superb and aesthetically pleasing
Plenty of room in the basement
Built in Fan Hub
Glass swing doors
Plenty if space for water cooling
Fill and drain ports

Cons: Does not include ribbon for vertical GPU
Does not include bracket for SSDs
USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 cables for the headers are thick and stiff and a pain to hide, I'm opting not to use them at all till someone comes up with a better looking extension that's easier to work with

Other Thoughts: Though it doesn't include brackets for SSDs, you can still mount them on the panels that hide your cables. Not a fan of it though, hole placement is poor so you can put a lot of stress or even break the sata connector on your SSDs when closing the panels if you aren't careful
