I have been checking out the Phanteks cases.

On several sites, there have been quite a few comments about borderline or poor cooling of components...in comments section below video.  (90c on the GPU)... at 9:37 into the review he talks about temps.(Hardware Canucks- Dmitri) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcNsHS2U8RM&feature=youtu.be

What do you think?

The original Evolv definitely had some issues with GPU cooling. I purchased it several years ago for use for TBG's high-end benchmarking system, but it wasn't adequate for an SLI system, so I sold it. The new Evolv X is greatly improved, and in fact that video shows that cooling is very similar with the front panel on or off. I can't explain his GPU temps - those are higher than the GTX 1080 he's using can actually hit due to thermal throttling. In fact, you could put a GTX 1080 FTW like the one he has in a closed box and it probably wouldn't hit those temps.

If you want the ultimate in cooling, you need to go with a mesh front panel. The case to get at the high end is the Cooler Master H500M.

FYI, according to Newegg, the Phanteks Evolv X is arriving on Sept. 24th. This should become an instant top seller in the ultra-premium class.

Alas, I wouldn't expect Intel's new CPUs and chipsets to be available until October, and even then, they are having such production problems that wide availability at retail prices will take months.

I've promised myself not to buy anything until early Spring/2019... so @ 5-6  months. I'm trying to keep myself calm. No promises.

!!!

Yup, pretty incredible. And by the way, I like Jay the most out of the celebrity YouTube PC reviewers. Honest, does a lot of explanation, and doesn't spend the entire time slamming the product to generate interest.

Just as soon as the RTX 2080 Ti actually exists...

There were only enough made to get them into the hands of a couple dozen reviewers worldwide.

Launch date?

Officially, Sept. 27th, but retail availability will likely be close to zero.

Will EVGA do a liquid cooled version like they did for the 1080ti? I'm pretty much ready to buy and build whenever now, but would like to get the best version!

Has not been announced yet. Will likely take a few months to arrive, just like the 1080 Ti Hybrid, which arrived in June 2017 (initial GPU launch was March 2017).

FYI, MSI has announced its Sea Hawk, but my guess it will also take a while to arrive.

Hopefully they will be out before the end of the year. I'd like to at least purchase components by then, for tax purposes.

Latest news is yet another delay, likely no RTX 2080 Ti cards shipping until second week of October. Definitely a paper launch.
