The silk screen printed glass panels and 3mm anodized aluminium exterior retains the sleek mimimalistic design that the Evolv is known for. Many enhancements to the internal layout provide support for long GPU's and extreme cooling with two mounting locations for radiators (up to 360mm in front and 280 mm on top).

Nice casing that certainly belongs onmy short list for micro ATX. Enough space for thicker radiator above also front and rear 140 mm, I miss exits and rear.
Buying larger memory disks is recommended as there is little room for them. Good that they are available NVMe SSD bay s on all current motherboards.

Hopefully they do a refresh the big brother and have the hinge side panel.

I like that they have blacked out the right side panel, that really bugged me about the ATX model (and other cases with both panels in glass)

I received mine Friday. I have to say, this is the nicest case I have ever owned. Fit and finish is simply outstanding. Some details I really dig...
- Tempered glass obviously on both sides. But the magnetic latches and foam padding for a soft close is a great touch as are the hinged doors
- The aluminum top and bottom is very nice compared to painted plastic
- The ability to remove the front and top panel without having to unplug anything is also impressive

I see now why sites are giving this case 10/10 or 100% scores.

Not the greatest photos I apologize, but this is mine for my new build. You really have to see this case to understand the quality aspect. You know how you see some cases that look awesome in photos but they turn out ugly and cheap feeling? This is the opposite... photos do not convey at all how nice it is in person.

I can't see how it could possibly get a 10/10 due the the front ports being hidden and having to fiddle around just to use them.
IMO it's more like an 8.

Leave the door to them open and no "fiddling"
