Up Close: Interior Bottom Rear and Roof
The Evolve ATX has a ventilated false floor which runs along the full depth of the case from front to back, covering up both the PSU, cable management area and floor mounted drive bays. The floor mounted drive bays do have an access panel above them though which also doubles as a pump/res mount. This panel can be easily removed to enable the front of the case to take thick 240mm, 280mm or even 360mm radiators. On the side of the false floor there's also a show off Drop-N-Lock point for mounting a 2.5" drive.
The area above and anterior to the PSU is heavily ventilated allowing the PSU to be mounted either way up. There are handy management holes at the rear edge of this as well as a good sized grommeted hole about half way along. The PSU itself sits under the false floor on 4 dense foam pads. Our review sample actually only had three pads, but we did later find the missing one in the box. As mentioned when we looked at the exterior, the rear of the case sports a panel which is designed to be able to accept even the larger diameter cylinder type reservoirs
Phanteks have included a 140mm fan at the rear of the case, with this mounting point also able to accept 120s. Up in the roof there's mounting points-a-plenty for up to 3x120s or 3x140mm fans, and, as we'll see when we look at cooling options, quite a bit of radage room
