Green only available on the trios When used tastefully...nothing beats their looks Even in a bright room the still show up well. Deciding factor gonna be if you want subtle lighting (led strips) or some bling. I plan to remove most of the plastic beams from the front panel leaving only the honey comb design and dust filter for an unobstructed view.

See thats my idea I want to do under case lighting have to do a bit of modding not much tho for cable routing. I'm also gonna do lighting through the grills on the top of the case and have green on top bottom and in the front I might use those fans that yours using....just curious they don't make a 200mm I know but what about a 140mm so I can put that where my 200mm is right now.

Hey guys, been a while since I've got around to posting often but had some free time today to look at watercooling and what not and was wondering what feedback you guys could give me on this mock up. I'm not totally new to water cooling, terms and some knowledge and such I know but previous use with it not so much. Below is just a mock of the loop I'm looking to do this fall/winter and was wanting some opinions before I think of finalizing anything.

Components:

CPU Block: XSPC Raystorm

360 Rad: Swifttech MCR320

140 Rad: Swiftech MCRx40

GPU Blocks: Heatkiller GTX 680 Ref Hole Editions with backplates

Pump/Res: XSPC Dual 5.25" with a D5 665 vari pump (Alphacool)

Fittings/Tubing: N/A (Compression Fittings, not a fan of barbs)

add a 360 super thick to the bottom and that will be my water cooled rig eventually.

I'd probably use the bottom cage for a rad myself but I used up all six of my cages tongue.gif

Was thinking of moving the 4 mechanical drives to my secondary rig and use it as a server too and just shove the SSDs somewhere

Good question there is a list but it may not be accurate to your region. In USA region, many distributors elected to upgrade their stocks so many "older" part numbers have the newer fan controller part and box. Not every Cosmos 2 on store shelves will have the updated part. Since this was an upgrade, not a recall, all current Cosmos 2 have the latest controller shipping from factory.

Different regions have different distributor arrangements. For example in some regions change wasn't requested so there are more likely to have the original controller available. Not every place in the world that sells CM products will have the same level of warranty support as USA/LTA/CA. It's just the warranty law in the USA are different than others. Most OCN reps in CM are from the CMUSA/LTA/CA regions so the level of service we offer is based on these regions. In these regions, we have always make it our goal to have the upgrade available as a parts request and worst, and at best should be preupgraded in your store. Short of sending a person to every location to physically upgrade the thousands of Cosmos 2 that are out there, we do our best to make it available.

It cost us a great deal as a company to upgrade, and we didn't have to, but we did it because we wanted to see if we could make Cosmos 2 owners more happy as they should be. There is no collusion or coworking in our industry among fan companies. Nothing forces us to work together. We have always said that compatibility is best with CM products, but you could contact your fan vendor first if you have any problems. This was true of the old fan controller, and is true with the upgraded one. If you have any trouble, you could go ahead an post on our CM OCN forums or our live chat and CM customer service will do their best to provide solution.

First I would like to say that you have have had the best customer service out of any company I've delt w/ in a long time. With that, however, I am using CM fans that were/are having issues w/ the fan controller. On the Old PCB the CM Sickleflow 120's would blink and tick, on the new PCB the blink is gone, but the tick has been replaced with a nasty hum on low and medium settings. Do you happen to know of anything else being done to resolve that issue, even if its for CM fans only?
