I had some difficulties similar to this with the bottom HDD cages, I figured it's just some imperfect sheet metal bending so I bent out the middle of each cage by like a degree or two with my hands (towards middle top and bottom) and they slid in perfectly, I assume it's the same for the five and quarters bays if you have that issue

I should have waited on the case a couple more weeks. I just finished building a budget PC for a co-worker. We spent about an hour and a half in Micro Center picking up his components and lo and behold they had a Cosmos II sitting on display and had 4 in stock for $339. doh.gif
Lol, my miss steps in thie build continue to mount. I should have taken Newegg's offer of a refund instead of RMA'ing with CM in the hopes for a mouse of some fans. If I had known Micro Center was going to carry these cases I would have.

While waiting for the case, I have continued to spend money like a drunken sailer. I have more fans, sleeved cable extensions, a new Samsung 256GB SSD and some other things I cannot remember right now on the way here. I am really hoping to come up with a neat, clean looking rig i might be tempted to post some pics of here. biggrin.gif This will be my 6th or so build ever and have just discovered new products out there to help tidy up the insides of the case.

No reply from CM to the email I sent earlier today.

Stizuner:

WOW! Your running like that? That is about what mine looked like when I bench tested everything to make sure it worked. I took it down once I verified it worked though. Now its all just gathering dust on a desktop while I wait for the case.

Might give that a try then. I really don't want to pay $120 to send it back.

Overall I don't love the case as much as I thought I would. I might order a switch 810 to check out. The 120 cost of return is rough

Hello Everyone,

I recently received my Cosmos 2 case and so far I am pleased with it. That being said here is my issue:

Issue: I purchased the Bitfenix Spectre Pro LED fans and wanted to replace the existing fans plus add new ones. The issue I have is that the LED controller cable(Turns Fan lights on or off) in the Cosmos 2 has a female end and the Bitfenix fans also have a female end. Does anyone know where I can purchase an adaptor or cable that will switch either end (Bitfenix or Cosmos 2) to a male end so that I can connect and use the ability to turn on and off the fans?

How did you connect the LED connector. I purchased the Bitfinex Spectre Pro led and the connector (once I removed the adaptor0 is female and the connection on the fan cable on the Cosmos 2 is also female? How did you connect them together?

I'm pretty sure skimming through Precious' posts that even though he didn't state it he has replaced the standard fan controller with an after market hence why it's missing and he was able to install the 200mm.

Also I've searched a little bit for a remedy to your female to female issue but from the looks of it no one sells a 2 pin to 2 pin like that. Best guess would be to splice your own wire, I'm sure someone else will come up with something better than that here though lol, but the splicing is easy enough.

Nice looking rig there zuner, sorry to see that you are not overall fully statisfied with the case though frown.gif.

I have finally finished my build, but it is pretty standard still (i.e. all stock fans) nothing flashy yet. Gotta admit the case is quiet (not as quiet as I would like it to be cause of my damn XFX 4870's, they run abnormally hot so I have to crank the fan speeds). I plan on buying a ton of cougar fans to replace all of the stock fans as well possibly getting a H100 for a push/pull config....going full water cool might be out of the question, seems a bit pricey plus I do not even know where to start (someone posted links for me, thanks but im still not sure where to start.)

I will be upgrading/replacing parts over the course of the next several months...1st to go will be the gfx cards. So far, happy with the case....I don't see myself getting a new one for years to come. I will probably post some pics soon (once i can figure out how to...hehehe).

Noise is my major priority and I want to get good fans. I'm also considering replacing all these terrible cougars since they tick at all voltages. Anyone going for a silence build with this case, and if so, which fans are you running. Don't suggest PWM because I don't want to deal with that again.

Danke.

All i can say is i've never had an issue with noise with Noctua's. Like double the price of those Cougar's.... but judging by your opinion of them, i'd say it'd probably be a "You get what you pay for" moment. Could always just buy one to see what you think of it before committing yourself to them completely. Though if you're looking for 140's, the ones i'm using on my heatsink from Prolimatech aren't half bad either.
