These guys?? and since I'm push pulling I'd want these then wouldn't I?? so I can take the bottom fans off to clean and let the rad still hang there. Ohh will there be long enough to go threough the fans then the holding support bracket then into the rad still??

darn I'm paranoid.

Also whats the thickest rad I can fit on the top I want good dense material for my noctuas to cool like a boss and a good thick 240 for the bot as well. I want to run cool while gaaming. Fans are 25mm if that helps at all and mobo will be the Asus R4E

Yes those will work fine. Your fans are 25mm and the support (top of case) is about .8 to .9mm and they only need to screw in to the radiator about 3-5mm, so you will do good.

The radiator thickness is up to you. I also choose the RIVE (Rampage 4 Extreme) I choose a 25MM rad I wouldn't pick one much thicker then 35mm because you wouldn't want the rad and the bottom fans to protrude below the top of the MB.

Room for 58MM total (radiator and fans) after that thickness you overlap MB PCB

Way I have it setup virtually

3x 140mm fans (140mm x 25mm)
cosmos 2 ceiling
412 x 133 x 25 mm (16.22 x 5.25 x 1 inch) Radiator
3x 120mm fans (120mm x 25mm)

I choose the black Hex Bolts M4 30MM so to match the red/black theme of build

Note- My radiator is x-flow so it renders my top two drive bays unusable by regular 5.25 bay devices. Also I have to dremel off my fan assist hook. I use my top bay for my 2 XSPC reservoir temp LCD and my second drive bay as a fill port. (empty 5.25 bay cover with a hole drilled through)

Sweet and I'm thinking since I have the entire thickness of the whole case in the bottom I'll make my 240mm rad a thicker one for better temps...what you think?

Just because the Radiator is thicker doesn't mean better cooling, it's the surface area of the radiator and the airflow on it that really matters. I'd go with #2 thinner, will have less fresh air blockage.

Yes a 240 attaches to the two bottom Radiator Brackets that come with the case.

The thinner rad's it is then. Thanks a lot man.
post #1598 of 6036
Thicker rads generally mean lower fan speed/less noise. rx240 would be a solid choice. Also consider xspc's es240 rad. It's a solid performer for less $$. There are some radiator comparison charts which show which rads perform best at what fan speeds.. I'll see if I can't find one for you.

btw- are you still interested in my ax850 with white ss cables?

yes definetely to the PSU AX850 with white lseevede cables. (curently working for paycheck to buy i9t right now gas took a chunk out but aparrently I get paid around the first....uhg long wait I know but I'm goign to buy it from you I have it all set up.) (( thanks againf or the offer))

apparently I can't spell either.

again another edit....I'm starting to like my thin rads that I'm choosing right now. They look to be good, performance wise with my nice and slow and quiet noctua fans (love that brand)

After having the Cosmos 2 delivered since Feb. I finally got around to building my rig a few days ago.

Overall the Cosmos 2 looks very sleek.

However, I still can't get over how much plastic is found in this thing.

I would have preferred more metal parts, especially items like the HDD bottom fan holder or the outer "skirt" around the doors.

But the thing that really pissed me off is the lack of room for a rad and a pair of fans.

CM really screwed up here; it was insanely difficult for me to mount the H100 with 2 pushing fans.

There is less than 7~mm of space between the H100 with fans and the 8pin CPU power plug on my mobo.

I spent hours disassembling an 8pin CPU power extension cable, sanding down the plastic connector to less than 6mm so that the 8 wires can bend further.

Without doing this extra bit of work, I could not have squeezed in the 8pin CPU power cable and mount the H100 with two fans pushing.
