I tried my metal Icy Dock SSD converters, but there was some resistance towards the very end and I didn't want to force it.
Sorry for the poor quality photo (Blackberry):-

Well, i'm not sure about the 2.5" to 3.5" converters... but i'd have to say before you start experimenting with one you might already have, do so after removing the hot swap bays themselves from the case. I only say this because i tried using a hard drive with a top that wasn't square (i.e. the lid over the platters and such was actually kind of contoured to the platters, so it had half-circle bits taken out basically), and there are actually spring-steel guides that both make sure the drive stays against the bottom of the bay as well as probably preventing vibrations. Well... the front set of those clips wound up getting stuck in the rounded bits of the top of the hard drive, making it impossible to pull out, so i had to unhook everything just to take the hot swap bays out, then had to pull those guides out. They're not hard to remove if you happen to have to do so, but i don't think it's possible to do, or easy to do, while they're still in the case.

@ elementaldragon,


Thanks for the advice, I will remove one of the hot swap bays for closer inspection and see what exactly is causing the resistance. My current model SSD converters are these: -http://www.icydock.com/goods.php?id=117

However, Icy Dock seem to say that this (plastic) model is perhaps more universally compatible with hot swap bays:- http://www.icydock.com/goods.php?id=80

I remember when the CM Storm Trooper was released, and there were many comments that it should have had 3.5'" hot swaps and not just 2.5". Now with the Cosmos 2 the reverse seems to be true, but I'm sure one adapter should work. If not I will use an Icy Dock 5.25" to 3.5" hot swap bay with the matching converter.

Well... looking at those adapters, it doesn't seem like there SHOULD be any issue with the spring steel braces i mentioned... but it might be best to take the hot swap bays out to see exactly what's going on. That's the one reason why i wish they didn't have the SATA data and power cables attached to the back, because it makes it a royal pain to remove, since you have to unplug everything from behind the motherboard tray, and pull the cables back through in order to take the hot swap bays out as they both come out in one unit.

Though, i'm kind of curious as to why you don't use the HDD bays to mount your SSD(s). They do have the appropriate holes in them on the bottom to secure a SSD, which is where i currently have my Agility 3.

The main reason is that I swap drives between my workstation at the office and my home PC. In my FT02 I have a 5.25" to 3.5" hot swap bay adapter, and use the SSD converters (containing my project SSD's) to move large projects between the two machines.

Yes, the standard hard drive trays take the SSD's on their own, or in the SSD converted case just fine. Only the hot swap functionality is missing. One thing I have noticed is quite a degree of flex in the roof panel, especially around the area of the second fan mount - anybody else noticed this?

Seems solid enough at the back of the case, near the handle attachment points, but around the top middle fan cutout its quite easy to depress the metal, which then "springs" back into once the pressure is removed. Never read any mention of this before, so I'm curious to know other user's experiences.

yes i still have them under the case they are a godsend... makes it very easy to access ... and if you need to move it somewhere ya just slide it makes the whole process a lot simpler...

forget about that... i posted in this thread 3 and 1/2 weeks ago about it ...

http://www.overclock.net/t/1199098/cooler-master-cosmos-2-club/660#post_16473320

doesn't work at all... and yes i have the plastic one. i never did get it to work and no one responded about any adapter that was compatible. i wound up just putting them in the normal HD bays and the hotswap goes unused. would be interested to know if you figure something out.

what is even more frustrating is that they don't give you front cover pieces if you just wanted to completely remove the hotswap bay and not use it at all. its a weird height, so you can't just use 2 of the other drive bay covers

@ Jobeo,

Seems like you and I are trying to achieve the same thing. I will experiment more, but if it turns out that the 3.5'" will only accept regular HDD, and no adapters, then I will install another one of these: http://www.icydock.com/goods.php?id=29

These units are compatible with http://www.icydock.com/goods.php?id=80 At the moment though I'm more concerned with how flexible the roof section seems to be. My HAF X and seemed to be a great deal more rigid in this area.

Ended up using a Cosmos II on my new SB-E rig, absolutely loving it. It's definately a huge upgrade from my old Antec P182 that I used to have.

I only wish the noisy speaker/buzzer could be turned off easily. Ended up stuffing it full of tape, which helped a lot.
