Cooler Master Cosmos 2 Club - Page 341

post #3401 of 6036
Thank you for your reply my setup so far consists of the following:

CPU: AMD X6 1090T@4.03(2.8NB)|MB: M5A990X EVO|VGA: Sapphire 7970 OC Dual X
16GB ddr3 HyperX 1600mHZ RAM|XFX 850W BE Semi Modular|Corsair H80 push/pull intake|Samsung p2770 HD Monitor

I plan to run crossfire first chance I get and later upgrade cpu and water cooler (something custom)

As i said I am aware of both cases pros and cons, what I dont know is how they compare to each other in terms of temps and noise. Of course I like the cosmos design more and all the extra goodies it provides but to justify its price I need to know that it would be significaly quieter than the stryker and see a temp difference under load at least 4-5 degrees C

Both my Gpus idle in the mid to upper 20c range in the Cosmos 2...


Bigger Area + Static pressure in larger area = WIN.

Also u can get a refurb Cosmos 2 for not much more money.

I used the tecflex black, along with some blueish 0.75" heatshrink pieces with the adhesive on the inside. It really keeps everything together.
Here is what the back looks like:

Here is what the front looks like:

Cable ties and more cable ties my friend. Go buy two packs of 50 or so at your local wally world or hardware store.

This is my revised back with about 30 minutes put into it, I'm not one to linger on something that I'll never look at or showoff but it was in too bad a state before that it would ALMOST start some minute bulging.

The front inside: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Some side tips:
  • Unplug and store away uneeded led/fan wires from stock controller
  • Either cut off unneeded connectors that cant be disconnected or shove them into the area underneath the fan controller interface where the circuit board is located,
  • Make use of all your bottom HDD bay cages to more easily have all power/sata cables together in one area (I see you have space in one of the columns down below)
  • One again, cable ties
  • The front most LED tube you have, put it in the space between inner lip of left side panel and where the top inner fans would go (personal preference really, a cathode seems to do the trick for me with even lighting, could be needed with LED)

My case at night with cathode placement (temporary/cell phone night quality): Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

On that note, would anyone know what it takes to disconnect the LED/Fan cables from the Controller PCB, not cut them, just disconnect them.
I still have the Green PCB but as i bought a separate controller don't need to get it replaced now.
I know there is some glue there keeping them attached so does anyone have any methods for getting rid of them.

I Still need to get round to posting pics of my case.
and mpetroul, wait till you see my cable management, if you could even call it management
post #3405 of 6036
Just pull off the glue. It's pretty easy.

any chance you guys know where i can purchase the cosmos 2 top part thats held in with thumb screw? the entire part that runs from the back of the fan controller to the back of the pc with the filter on top to prevent dust from getting into the case and the top mounted fans. Got a great plan for setup but need a second one to do the job.

On the back.. use the top as all intakes so the back will be the only Neg pressure in the case.

Or the very last top mount and get a filter kit and mount a 140mm as an intake on the back.

I am a bit confused, front bottom and side fans are for intake , if I use the back and top as an intake as well where will the air come out?
or
By using the very last top mount wouldn't it be wiser to use the rear fan as exhaust (removing the hot air coming from the radiator out of the case)?

Sorry if I sound ignorant I haven't really done this before at this level , I usually go by the rule front bottom intake , rear top exhaust...

If you can please clarify biggrin.gif
