Definitely love the curved acrylic. Hope CM releases a windowed panel, soon. All these efforts to make the inside of the case look good, only without a window to show it off. doh.gif
Some more blue LED lights for your case wouldn't hurt. My 2m white NZXT LED light strip barely gives off enough light as it is, but sanding the bulbs down for a more diffused light definitely made things better. Guess the remedy for that other than putting more lights in the case is to add more white components in the future.
definitely grab one... especially as the good 128GB ones are hovering at just above $100 these days.
My M4 128GB is definitely worth it. thumb.gif
Hopefully I can remove the hot swap bays over the weekend... or tomorrow if I have the time. biggrin.gif Can you put anything of use in the space left behind? Like a pump or an extra 5.25" slot (for a fan controller or optical drive)?
Man, anything smaller than an AX1200 really looks awkward in the case. Lol.

Thx again, I have that exact same 2m white led strip maybe i should install it around the edges to see how it looks like thumb.gif

Thanks

Yup its same length as the original cables, when i started installing the cables on this case i thought that the cpu power cable would not reach to the top of the case since the psu is so far down from the mobo, but it worked and all other cables have enough length to connect everything.

So I have not heard anything about the new fan controller that Coolermaster is makeing for the cosmos II case. Does anyone have any details about the new fan controller that coolermaster is working on?

Valgaur: since i don't think anybody has mentioned it yet, SSD's can be attached to any of the HDD bay brackets (top section or bottom section) with screws, and I believe any SSD you order also comes with screws, too. If not, could probably figure out which ones that came with the Cosmos II would work just by trial and error, trying to see which ones have the proper threading by screwing them in a little without them being on the HDD bracket. But i'm pretty sure they usually ship a set of screws with SSD's.

Sorry for the late response. Just woke up in this side of the world, lol.

Yeah. Basically a 2.5" SSD can be screwed onto all the 3.5" bay adapters that slide into the 11 hard drive cages. And yes, the screws are included for most SSDs (at least in my Crucial M4). smile.gif

EDIT: Just checked. SSD mounting screws aren't included in the Crucial M4. Sorry 'bout that. I used the screws supplied with the Cosmos II. But since you already have the case, I guess it won't be a problem. Lol. wink.gif

Check out my rig to get an idea of how it looks like. I have the 2m strip installed. It barely goes around the main partition of the case. Definitely won't be long enough to go through the bottom partition and where the PSU is (which might be a concern since your side panel does show everything).


EDIT: Just saw the photo when I scrolled down the page. doh.gif It looks better. Makes the inside of the case less blue, and the lighting look more even. thumb.gif

By the way, I modded my LED strip -sanded it down for a more even diffused light, definitely helps a lot.

Quite an improvement, I must say. Haven't taken a photo of the case with the newly modded lights on just yet. Going to rearrange the wiring first.

I looked at your pics and your strip looks a lot brighter, will have to send the tips on mine biggrin.gif btw did you use regular sand paper to do it? if so what grid? or i just do it with my dremel lol

NO! Don't use a Dremel! eek.gif

I just used normal 240 and 400-grit sandpaper. 240-grit first to dull the bulb, then 400-grit to smoothen it. Took me a good 45 minutes or so to do the entire 2m, but that's just me.

This does void the warranty, though. But since you modified your case already, I think you don't mind with that. Lol.


EDIT: And it also helps to pop out the entire LED bulb through the sleeve for more light and easier sanding.
