Yeah, but you can't do that with a 295X2 because it's a dual GPU card with a built-in AIO (closed loop) cooler. It's not expandable, unless maybe you want to do some fairly serious modding.



^ Hopefully from that picture you can also see why it would be impossible to mount the rad in the door of the case. You wouldn't be able to mount it to the door unless it was closed and if you could pull that off then you wouldn't be able to open the door afterward. The hoses are really just long enough to reach a typical rear case fan location directly above the card when mounted in the top mobo slot.

AFAIK The card isn't even available for sale yet so I haven't seen what kind of temps people will get with it, but I can't see it keeping great temps seeing as how hot the single GPU 290Xs get - hotter than should be put on a single 120 rad - so I assume the 295X2 is going to get much hotter still. I could wind up being wrong though. It does have a fan too so it's not strictly watercooled. It's a hybrid. We'll see.


As far as raddage space in the Cosmos 2, it was really disappointing imho how little room there is for rads unless you want to sacrifice the HDD space, which I definitely don't. I need every one of the HDD bays and wish there was more. I never would have imagined before buying mine that it wouldn't easily fit a modestly thick 360 or 480 rad (45mm-60mm) up top in push-pull and I won't settle for running any rad in just push or pull. I definitely should have done more homework on it first. Heck, it won't even fit a 30mm 360 up top in push pull without some modding. For a case this size . price range that's pretty pathetic. A major FAIL for Cooler Master imho.

I gave up trying to watercool it and got a Phanteks Enthoo Primo to put underwater instead. it's soooooooo much better a case as far as watercooling goes it aint even close. I'm using my air-cooled Cosmos 2 as an HTPC / media server instead of the watercooled gaming rig I originally had envisioned it would be.

Well, 90% of all cases sacrifice hdd cages if you want to mount more than one radiator.

Yeah, but I bought my Cosmos 2 with plans to use all 13 of the HDD spaces. I saw how many HDDs it could fit on the box and how big the case was and I just assumed it was going to have room for plenty of push-pull raddage up top so I bought it on the spot. Like I said, I should have done my homework first. That's my fault.

Rather than have to sacrifice HDD space or settle for a skinny rad up top in just push or pull, I just went with an Enthoo Primo instead. It's a much smaller full tower case that looks tiny compared to the Cosmos 2 , and it's ~$100 less expensive too, but I didn't have to sacrifice any drive bays - it fits 6 HDDs and 4 SSDs - and it fits an XT45 480 up top and a 360 Monsta in the bottom both in push-pull no problems, no modding necessary. Heck, I just as easily could have put a 480 Monsta in the top in push-pull instead of the XT45 as it turns out it has 54mm of offset clearance from the mobo which is plenty to clear the CPU cables, heatsinks, and all but the tallest profile memory, but I didn't know that at the time so I played it safe and went with a rad that would fit in p-p up top & wouldn't overhang the top of the mobo at all.

Now that I have the Enthoo Primo I may yet put my Cosmos 2 underwater. I need to get in there and do some measuring to see if there's not actually enough space up top to put a 30mm 360 rad up top in push-pull if I cut out the top panel and fabricate my own in it's place. I think if I can step it up a few mms towards the top filter cover and maybe shift the mounting location over to get a little more offset from the mobo I might just be able to shoehorn what I want in there afterall. I've already got a spare 360 GT Stealth rad and D5 pump and a LOT of extra compression and rotary fittings and Advanced LRT tubing that I'm not otherwise using at the moment for anything else. If it doesn't look doable I'll just have start looking for a new case for my next build.

Yeah I saw that. Nice. Looks like someone's due to start swapping out those 2TB drives for 4TB ones. tongue.gif

Still one empty slot in the FatCage, but yeah, it'll happen eventually.

Anyone else having problems closing the side panel when you have a 140mm fan in the back of the case?

Any other than the default one? I have no issues closing my with standard 140mm that it came with.

Check that the fan cable doesn't touch the latching hole.

Hey guys, I just ordered a cosmos 2 and I think I might have messed up on a few things. If anyone could do me a huge favor, I'm having a hard time finding it, I'm looking for the dimensions of the motherboard compartment of the case. Thanks in advance.

I appreciate the help, but specifically looking for the dimensions. I goofed and accidentally ordered a super huge res, not sure if it's going to fit.
