Description

After Months, of procrastination, saving and final selection of my parts, I was finally able to build and make my first ever PC build which I titled the frost. It all started when I was first introduced to the Enthoo Evolv Cases. At that moment in time I persuaded myself to get the case which I eventually did but then saved up for the rest of the parts. My build was inspired from a you tube video showing the Evolv Series Case and also from one of our very own Pcpartpicker Completed builds by jojo9752 when his first ITX build came out.

CPU – I wanted something that I could use for Graphic design and video editing which is why i got the i7 4790k and also wanted it to be able to hackintosh and I will also overclock this overtime.

CPU Cooler – I wanted to get a AIO cooler so I decided to get the corsair h110 GTX

Memory – I initially wanted to get the Kingston Hyperx Fury blue but they didn't have it in stock so I went and got the next best thing.

Storage – The Two 120gb SSD's are used separately one for Windows and one for mac when I hackintosh this build.

Video Card - I wanted to get a great graphics card within my budget so then I bought the gigabyte and will overclock down in the future.

Power Supply – It’s a PSU that I wanted to have enough juice for the PC while still under budget of the build.

Case – The case I got was the Phanteks Entho Evolv Itx because i will be moving within a year to go to university, while making it slightly easier to transport. I also decided to mod the case and honestly i am very pleased with the results after I finish my build. This is a nice looking build but the case itself is doable to route the cables around since this is my first build. I would defiantly recommend it to anyone who's going to build an ITX build

Overall, I really do love my first build and will think about upgrading in the future to possibly to x99 and hopefully be able to create my second build. This was a first build so I did have a bit of trouble doing the cable management which took me a couple of house but in the end as I said before i am really pleased with the results.

Looks great man! I love my Evolv ITX so much I'm swapping out my main rigs case with the full size variant. Great parts list too BTW.

Wow, this makes me wish the Enthoo EVOLV came in a black/white version. Super slick looking build. However, you might want to add some dim white LEDs in order to counter the heavily tinted side panel.

Yeah i was planning to add some Led's in the future but i do like the tinted side panel, its easier to notice in person but because I took the photo using a phone its not the best of quality. Thanks for the advice! :D

Hey really nice build, it is sleek and clean, that case is beautiful nevertheless, I had some doubts about that monitor in particular, how are the vessels and the screen overall?

  • 57 months ago
  • 1 point

Honestly, I bought the monitor before i even built my PC and used it as a second display for my laptop that i was using and will upgrade to a different and better monitor later in the future probably 144hz but yeah! The vessels and the screen overall is great and I'd recommenced if for a cheap monitor i really do like using mine at least.

Congrats on your first build. It sure is beautiful and excellent part choices too. The Evolv series is one of my favorite lines of cases as well. My new build has the white matx version. Well done though. Deserves to be feautured. :)

I plan on adding a HDD in the future but the SSDs are particularly for dual boot.

Interestingly your description here matches my plan for my first PC build almost exactly. How's the hackintoshing going? I thought you had to have really specific mobo and such for it to work properly. Also isn't your power supply overpowered for what you're doing? Or do you have that headroom for OC?

  • 57 months ago
  • 1 point

The Hackintosh is still in progress and will be working on once I have time to figure out exactly, but i looked through the Tonymacx86 for the guide on what parts are compatible and built upon that guide. Initially I was planning to get a corsair power supply but because the store i go to didn't have it, they recommended a better PSU for a decent price and i will be overclocking on the future so yeah. :)

Does the H110i fit nicely without any modifications? I saw somewhere else on the internet they had to bend back some of the support for the radiator pullout thing.

Also, how are you powering your fans? Are u just using a splitter?

  • 52 months ago

Yeah the h110 Fits nicely into the case, and Im powering the fans through the motherboard and no Im not using any splitter.

The case was easy to use besides my cable management but i just had like issues when i had too many cables through one socket where the rubber cover would come off but besides that, Id defiantly recommend this case! Thanks anyways :D
