Ok my cosmos ii is coming in the mail as I'm writing this, and I'm ordering a bunch of custom fans some w/ led and the extra led connector and some w/o. As far as connecting everything to the fan controller, am i going to need any extension cables?

Fan power cables from the controller are pretty long, there shouldn't be any problem connecting fans all over the case. LED leads are the same length if I remember correctly (I haven't used them) because they are not compatible with most fans. That said getting those custom fans to work correctly with the fan controller is also another story.

It might be me who left the review on newegg.

with 2 rx240 radiator you might have a problem depending of the mobo you are using. You can easily fit a rx240 at the bottom. But on top it might be hard to reach your 8 pins CPU connector depending of the mobo you're using.

I had a RX240 and after a few try, I had to buy a EX240 which is thinner than the RX240. I will fit my 240RX at the bottom when I have time. 35-38mm would be ideal for the top case but it all depend of the motherboard you're using. Some motherboard will give you more space to handle the connection of your 8pin connector.

HOWEVER, i wasn't using any PSU cable extension at this time( I didn't knew there was some good quality cable extension at this time).
Doing so, might help you to connect more easily your 8pin connector and maybe an additional 4pin(like I have on my rampage IV Extreme). Also be aware that you will be force to use a pull configuration at the top because the RX240 wont fit for a push configuration Even the EX240 didn't fit for a push configuration.

My RX240 is 58mm so it will have to go in the bottom. Probably start there and expand later. Is the Hot swap bay removable. I don't need or want it. I'd like to place my dual bay reservoir in it's place. Don't want to lose my DVD or Blu-ray yet.

Thanks for the info

Edit Don't know why the quote went screwy

I am thinking of upgrading to individually sleeved cables and eventually a custom water loop, but I would like to get suggestions for colors. Black, Red, or White cabling, with matching tubes for water. or a different combination. I would appreciate any other suggestions for mods.

Also does any one know if there is an easy way to remove the hotswap drive bays?

I tried to remove the hot swap bay and use my dual bay reservoir but it wont fit. You'll have a small gap left after inserting the reservoir. However, if you can find a piece of plastic to cover the hole (or craft one), you should be fine.

However, I dunno if the screw holes will fit. After I saw that I had a gap, I didn't bother to pay attention if the hole are align. But still, there is plenty of way to keep your bay tight.



P.S. if you start using the bottom configuration, pay attention if you'll need to buy some 45 degree fitting or even 90 degree fitting. Otherwise your tube will bend like crazy.

There a few pictures showing how people did an additional hole at the bottom of the case to fit their tubes adequately.

Good luck and show us some picture when it's done. I will too as soon i get my GPU waterblocks.

Yes the bay can be easily removed. On my side, I kept them in place but I removed the power/sata cables since Im not using it.
But they are really easy to remove.

As for the cable, usually people make it fit with their mobo and Ram. Im using blue tubes right now but I will switch to red because my mobo is mostly red and I got the same video cards as yours. So red tubing or transparent tubing with red fluid + black cabling is awesome. mix that with nice tubing management using black fitting and youll get a nice looking water cooling loop.

After taking a closer look at a pic of the front I see what you mean. I wonder if I could remove everything but the front cover plate and use the small drive doors to peek at my reservoir levels.

hehe sorry if I'm not 100% clear. I'm a french Canadian and I'm doing a few grammar mistakes. But I did a lot of try with that case so I can share my experience. thumb.gif

That's okay, my french sucks, so we are on pretty even terms.applaud.gif

So will a dual reservoir fit behind the hot swap doors if everything else is removed?
