    ModmyMods.....uh....pro mod for Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX

    For those (like me) who consider the air flow on the top panel to be sub-par on the Evolv ATX, they have a mod for it which opens it up, and looks decent. I can't tell what the filter material is, but getting a modmesh or hex mesh in steel or aluminum and securing it to the top panel would be trivial for most of the pros around here.

    So now you don't have to slice and dice the case to fix the airflow problems!!!!

    Really nice, I wish they had something for other models. One day, I guess...

    So, somebody would pay $80 on top of the already $180 price tag for that? That is just outright insane. Money would have to be no object, and that person completely useless to have to buy that.

    Just my opinion.

    I would normally agree with that Xman, but the 3mm thick aluminum is going to cost you that in Dremel discs if you want to modify it on your own.

    The unfortunate part is that the stock top has very poor airflow, but what people forget is that if you forego the aluminum shell, the Enthoo Pro M is 100% the exact same chassis without the airflow problems, and just has a steel/plastic, or steel/plastic/glass exterior and costs like $120.00 Cdn.

    Oh, and that's $80.00 USD, or $120.00 Cdn

    A Hundred bucks are nothing these days. One trip to groceries.

    If it cost me more than $20 to cut out that top, I would give up modding forever. Furthermore, for $80, I would expect a custom pattern cut.

    Again, just out right laziness, and no creativeness required.

    For about $20 or less, a person could bring it to a shop and have it custom cut, with precision, on a water table. But there must be a shit ton of lazy people out there if they are selling. Or hoping to anyways. LOL

    You are saying that someone can go to a local machine shop and have a custom aluminum panel cut for less than 20 dollars? If so, shop name please because there are many things I would love to have done at that price.

    There is a lot that went into the cover.
    For starters, it was cut using a CNC machine, you're not going to get the nice crisp clean cut with a Dremel or a jig saw that they have done, Especially not twice.
    The top has been anodised to perfectly match the case. The filter is perforated steel.

    Many will pay $100 Canadian for such an item because they don't have the time, the tools, the know-how. They just want better airflow in a case that they didn't want to mod in the first place.
