From my experience with the Cosmos 2, I'll try and answer your questions.
1). Using push/pull fan configuration with the H100 is dependent on your motherboard, specifically the size and placement of the VRM heatsink. The placement of the 8 pin CPU connector can also create a few issues. However, although it can be a little tricky, it has been done. There's a couple of pictures in this thread showing it done using a RIVE.
2). Most people use the controller on the H100 water block (which can control up to four fans). Although you could use the built-in fan controller. However, the Cosmos 2's controller is rated at 1A per channel, and not per fan.
3). GPU fan refers to the optional 120mm fans that can be attached to the side panel and blow over the GPU's.
4). The fan controller cables terminate in 3 pin female connectors, you can of course use an adapter for 4 pin PWN fans. I use the ones that came with my CM Excaliburs. As I stated earlier, there is a limit of 1 AMP per channel. The Excaliburs for example are rated at 0.45A, therefore 3 of them would exceed the rating of the Cosmos 2's fan controller for use on one channel. This is the reason why I have connected one of my top fans directly to my motherboard, as to avoid having all 3 (0.45A) fans running off one channel.

Thanks for the quick and incisive reply. And +rep for that smile.gif

I'm seriously considering the Cooler Master Cosmos II as my next chassis, I surely don't need all the space but who knows what the future might bring?

I've never been a Cooler Master fan, I got a few rack chassis from Cooler Master and they do the trick but neither is anything special. I tend to find Cooler Master cases to either look too childish, or containing too much plastic (I hate the low quality feel you get from plastic) and when I finally find some that barely contains plastic and looks sleek they tend to have bad design on the inside...

So why would I bother with the Cosmos II? I don't fancy the looks that much, it doesn't look bad and the whole metal theme makes it kinda look like a bad ass tank but it's not that sleek and minimalistic design I'd normally prefer. What I do like about it though, which is the whole reason why I' am considering one in the first place is the pure awesomeness of it's internal design. It seems like you can put everything and your mother inside of it without any space issues whatsoever! It comes with some fairly great solutions for cable management and such and the airflow design and the pure amount of fans you can mount into this things should make it an awesome and silent thermal performer if you replace all the fans with some Noctua 120mm PWM's and 140mm fans.


My question must be, what do you NOT LIKE about the Cosmos II? It must surely has it flaws like every other chassis on the market.
Would it be possible to fit a Corsair H100 in there with a push + pull configuration without the need of modifications to the chassis, using a Rampage IV Extreme motherboard as reference?
How many fans does this bad boy ship with, which sizes and how many fans of which sizes would you be able to fit in there if you'd want to max out it's airflow potential? (Trying to figure how many Noctua 120mm and 140mm fans I would need to purchase to fill this thing up.)

Could you tell me how you mounted that reservoir?

Hi guys,

Im still pretty new here. I picked up the Cosmos 2 about a month ago at Fry's in Willsonville OR. I've been pretty much sitting on it since. I was wondering (looking) for a tear down step by step for the cosmos 2. Anyone see such a guide? Im still pretty new to moding. (i watched TJharllow with the Antec 1200 and did the window mod) But outside of that nadda. If someone could point me in the right direction.

Thanks

-T

Hi guys ! After seeing your incredible pictures and hearing good stories about the cosmos S I decided to buy one myself !
I got one yesterday, installed everything today and it looks good !
However, if I put fan speed on everything exept high on the top fans (Be Quiet USC 140MM) I get a weird sound :/... Does anyone
got similar issues with the fan controller?
post #1268 of 6039
Ow and when I change fanspeed, I get a very load Beeepp, is this normal.. and can I turn it off?450

@ RamGuy,

Please see my answers to akafreak several posts above regarding the H100.. However, I think the following can sum up the general flaws with the Cosmos 2:-

1. Too much plastic used for the trim
2. Lack of roof to mobo clearance prevents the use of thick rads.
3. Fan controller issues - pulsing fans and flickering LED's (soon to be rectified by a revised PCB by Coolermaster).

No case is perfect, and if the construction was all aluminum and rivet-less, like the TJ11, the price would be insane due to the tooling required. That said I do love the general look and interior design of this case, as do many others on this forum.

The stock fan configuration is a 200mm blue LED at the front, two 120mm fans on the side for the HDD's, rear 140mm and one 120mm at the top. Three 120mm or two 140mm fans can be fitted to the top (roof) section. A further two 120mm fans can be attached to the side panel for GPU cooling, and an additional 120 mm fan at the rear of the top HDD cage.

The front 200mm fan can be replaced by a 140mm fan, and below this an additional 120mm can be fitted.

Yes, just like the Storm Trooper the beep is normal when pressing the fan controller buttons. Let's hope the revised PCB for the controller has a jumper to disable this beep.
