I was decided to bay a cosmos 2 and repaint it, because I don’t like the black color. If I do repaint the case the first step is as you did (to take the case apart). It seems easier than I thought to take it apart.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks...

I removed my fan PCB from the top cover and ran an extended ribbon cable then velcro'd it inside the back; makes it a lot easier to work with.

Does anyone know what the max load on the fan controler is? I mean, I would like to add an extra fan to the front along with the 200mm thats in there now.

I think it's 1 Watt per channel, so the GPU connection is 1 watt, front fan 1watt, etc.

I cut out the fan filter on the side door. What a damn mess. Feels like fiberglass or something. My GPU idle temps dropped from 43c/39c to 38c/35c. I have a Enermax 120mm TB silence 900RPM fan exhausting out from there, before barely any air came out, now I can feel a good amount of flow and it's great. Very happy with my 5 minute mod. I'll try load temps and such soon. But my GPU coolers only hit like 45% fan speed as they never go above 71c, My concern is keeping them cool so the fans run lower. Since I do lots of voice recording it helps with noise reduction work.

Got any pics of that side door now? I thought it was recommended to put side door fans as intakes to blow on the gpus.

My GPU's dump so much heat directly into the case but it's aimed towards the door vents. So I figured I'd try having the fan pull it out as well. I will try it with the fans as intake but I don't think it will help since it seems like it would push the hot air back towards the GPU heatsinks.

I'm thinking of setting my top 140's as intake and then having two 120's in the side panel as exhaust. So the air is pulled around the GPU's and out the door.

With heat rising, still seems like air intake on the side panel and exhaust out the top would still be the better way to go.

convection is a very weak force inside of this case it would seam. Besides, the cards vent most of their heat sideways towards the door.

Still haven't gotten my cables sleeved.. been a tad bit lazy.

Would it be a good idea to switch out the 200 mm cm fan with something else ?
