Case Build & Finished Product
We feel that the front of the chassis is unmistakable, and did not require the addition of the Phanteks case badge to break up the sleek appearance. With no optical bays and the fact that the front I/O panel is hidden behind a small door, we are left now with the same aesthetic appeal we saw fresh out of the box.
In this image, we can see that there is a bunch of room above the motherboard for thick radiators and push/pull setups on thin ones. We found no issue mounting the motherboard, the AIO has room to hang from the back, and GPU sag is minimal even with a very long card in play. The PSU cover blocks the view of ugly things, yet at the same time allows users to display the make and model of the PSU chosen to go under it.
Without the proper shield to use, we tried another and found it to pop right into place. We did find a need for a bit of force to align the screws that hold the video card in place, but when it came to mounting the PSU, it couldn't have been any easier.
When it came to wire management, we found the straps to be sufficient. We could have also run the PSU wires through them, but we found that for our build requirements, all of the wires run naturally near the motherboard tray. We can tuck the wires in, and not cause issues with the magnetic closure of the tempered glass panel, which covers this.
With the glass doors back on the Evolv MATX, all we have to do now is power things up and test it. We love that the left panel is made of clear glass, which allows for an excellent view of the components without the need for extra lighting.
Once powered, the Evolv MATX emits 33 dB of noise from the back of the chassis from the pair of 140mm fans at full speed. As it stands, out of the box, without buying optional LED strips, there are only two LED zones. The ring of LED light around the power button as well as the flicker of the HDD activity light in the slit in the front cover will match whatever is set. Keep in mind that there are ten options for colors, and that is without a motherboard which supports RGB LED controls.
