I was thinking about that too, but I am leaning towards leaving them copper to match the blocks. Thanks for the tips on the Bulldog adheasion promoter. I will be using it on my next build and will report back with how well it works.

Thanks Bliz! Yeah, I have a small box full of wasted copper tubing haha. I've got 3 feet left out of 20, and still need a fill-tube. I'd better get that one by the 2nd try max or else I wont have any left lol

GREAT Build, I was wondering if you had known of anyone doing a guide breaking down the CM2? I'm a little stuck on getting that front drive bay door off.... :X
RRS feed makes keeping track of this a lot easier!!!!
-T

I am going to be breaking down the case again to do some more cutting, as soon as I get things finalized. I will post up some 'how to disassemble your Cosmos 2' pics, probably in a new thread but I'll put a link in here as well.

I've got all the tubing bent and cut except for the ends that go into the pump/res and the fillport tube. I'm not 100% certain to where the res is going to sit. I still have to sand down the thickness for the last 4 or 5 tubes.

I also am going to have to order a few more fittings. I'm a bit disappointed that there is not a nice location to put in my drain fittings that I showed earlier. There's room for it in a couple spots (like either side of the PSU), but the outside trim pieces of the case are in the way...

I should have some pictures up tomorrow along with a progress update. I have been busy today, having breakfast with my girl, doing some household chores, and filing my taxes. I did get some more pipe bending done though, and am about to start doing some more modding stuffs thumb.gif

It's looking great!

I need to trade you back for my components here soon, I also have a gift that you may or may not choose to use!

I'll probably be a little longer before I decide to do anything too crazy, now that I've almost finished up this whole "buying a new car thing", and just started this moving thing. I may be moving a few blocks closer to your house though, Bob, I found a nice little house a little more in your direction.

The loaner is also working out for me, however, I can't get the sound card drivers to work, but luckily the wireless adapter for my PX3's is it's own sound card, I just can't hook the computer up to my stereo, also, I'm not used to these things that people tell me are called "loading screens".

Sounds like you're getting all your hens in a row. Thats good. I'm pretty sure the sound card was working before.. Maybe it shook loose in the drive over to your house or something. Talk to you soon bud.

Anyways, I ordered a few more items this morning that I need to wrap up this build and am hoping to get them by the end of the week. I was plugging away over the weekend, but I am going to spread it out over the next few days, since I wont have much new until the parts arrive.

Here are some 'keeper' pieces of bent pipe ready for thinning down and polishing. Notice you can see some wrinkles in the bends. These will have to be sanded out too-

img0813s.jpg

I use a sander with some 220 grit sandpaper to thin down the pipe ends.

img0834at.jpg

Ends thinned and wrinkles sanded out thumb.gif

img0835ll.jpg

I have to break down the case to do some cutting on the false floor and the motherboard tray. Someone PM'd me regarding how to do this (removing the sliding front door in particular), so I will link it here since I didn't really show how to do it the first time.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1244408/disassembling-the-cm-cosmos-ii-case-for-painting-modding/0_20#post_16998140

If you want to break it down any further, you need to drill out some rivets thumb.gif

Well, my plan for mounting the radiators to the case is somewhat crude but effective. There is about 5/16" of space between the fan mounting frame and the cooling fins. Enough room for me to drill some holes in them!

img0872vn.jpg

showing the clearance between the bolt-holes and the cooling fins. Believe me, I was careful not to hit the fins haha!

img0873ph.jpg

Then I carefully measured and drilled some matching holes into the bottom of the case. Only 4 holes drilled in the pic, but I drilled all eight.

img0870m.jpg

I also did a little more cutting on the mainboard tray-

img0869uz.jpg

I also cut a hole in the top, left, for a fill-tube, located directly behind the 5.25" bays. I installed the bitspower through port fitting. I'll have a matte black plug on the top, and a quick-link sli fitting below to accept a copper tube that will go to the top of the res.

img0875wg.jpg

After attaching some fans and fighting with the screws that go through the rad frames, I got the bottom radiators attached.

img0878du.jpg

When I was done and admiring my work, I realized that I didn't put the copper tube between the rads. I had to remove one of the rads, put the pipe in, then reattach the rad haha- Here's a picture with the connecting copper pipe in place. If this loop leaks anywhere below the false floor, I may have to remove EVERYTHING just to get at it blinksmiley.gif The pipe looks a little bit crooked to me in this picture, I will have to adjust the position of the rads a little bit. I made the holes in the case a bit oversized so I can adjust them if needed.

img0880jd.jpg

Looking good!

img0881t.jpg

After trying to figure out where to cut holes in the floor for the tubes to pass through, I came up with this idea bulb.gif

img0866f.jpg

Motherboard and floor cut, sanded, spot primed and spot painted, and reinstalled thumb.gif The floor with the big hole in it will alow for access to the plumbing below.

img0884c.jpg

That's it for now. I did a couple other things, but will save them for later muhahahaha!
Thanks for looking and let me know what you think! thumb.gif
