Does the Enthoo Evolv ATX Tempered is silent ?

Enclosures and acoustic damping to help quiet them.

Does the Enthoo Evolv ATX Tempered is silent ?

Post by UnReal' » Wed Jul 26, 2017 2:01 pm

I'm currently building a new setup and I wanted to know if the Enthoo Evolv ATX Tempered is silent ? The tempered seems to be more quiet than the non tempered version but is it a good competitor against the Define S ?

(Is the Scythe Mugen Max alway a good CPU cooler for a i7 7700K ?)

Thanks you !

i7 7700K
Asus Strix Z270e
Probably Asus Strix 1070 ?

Hello & welcome to SPCR,

At first look, the air intake flow would seem to be restricted.

Thanks you ! :wink:

But on SCPR, the ITX test http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1457-page7.html is not far away to the Fractal Define S http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1456-page7.html?

The ATX Tempered one is bigger and announced as quieter? I find the look of the Define S a little boring... If you have another good case and maybe more elegant ?

Jayz2cents found that as well, but his was using an overkill liquid loop.

My mate has one, pretty case, but expect to run your fans higher to compensate for the front and top. Shame it is very well made. The window is really nicely sealed around, not just free floating.

Thanks you ! But could we consider it as silent ?

From page 3 of 7 from the SPCR review of the ITX version:
Hidden on the sides are the front panel's main intake vents, which are about 5 mm wide. [Editor's Note: As with so many vents in cases these days, this vent looks far to[sic] small to feed the big fan anywhere near the airflow it deserves.]

I think the vents are essentially identical:
