Hello guys and gals-

It's been too long but I'm back with an upcoming build for my friends brother Lane. We are going to be getting wet in the new Cosmos II case from Coolermaster. The case is schedueled to be delivered tomorrow, and I am hoping it arrives in pristine condition. I'm a bit worried after reading about all the damaged cases arriving on peoples doorsteps from the Cosmos 2 owners thread.

I'm sure that most of you all know what the Cosmos II case looks like so I'll just post one stock photo-

cmcosmos.jpg

I've been wanting to do a hemi orange/black computer ever sinve I completed the MKG-RC1 (http://www.overclock.net/t/888554/madkat-games-rc1-gt5-machine/140_20#post_12113186) so I spend a bit of time with my trusty photo editing software (MS Paint lol) and came up with a few ideas-

choices.jpg

I've got some good ideas floating around, but nothing is set in stone. I haven't even seen this case in person yet. I can't wait to get my hands on this bad-boy and see what I can see.
I've sent the off in an email and am waiting to see if they appeal to Lane. Which do YOU like? Feel free to suggest ideas also. I am always willing to take suggestions and learn something new!

Those fans would go nicely with the color scheme thumb.gif If anyone needs measurements or dimmentions from the case, I will be happy to help (when the case arrives).

Personally I would go for either the first or the last idea. Other ideas seem to have too much going on in my opinion or just too much orange.

I'm totally stoked to get this started, I agree with morg up there smile.gif. Didn't even think of Half Life with that orange. Part of me, however, wants to go white/red with the liquid fusion reservoir from FQPC, and do an Umbrella Corp style PC. Something closely colored to the White Silence by MDPC. I'm so indecisive right now frown.gif

I think if you really want to stand out you should stay away from white, its getting over played right now in my opinion. I like the orange and black, but a red, silver, and black could be cool. What MB are you going with? I would work the colors around that.

BTW I like this one.

Agreed. White is what is really popular right now. Red/white or red/silver would look pretty sweet.

That shade of orange is really unique, though. The choice is yours thumb.gif
