Cosmos II (Liquid Edition)

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Bit late to the party but just thought i'd stop by and post an old Cosmos II mod from a few months back blushsmiley.gif

Well the clock ticked and its January 3rd which means only one thing..........the release of Cosmos II

I know everyone just wants to see pictures of the Cosmos II but if i could just add a few words - I was lucky enough to get one of the first here in the UK from Coolermaster to have a play with and although i could go through a whole list of features i’ve decided to leave that to the review guys who will do a far better job than i could and no doubt there will be a whole rake of them flooding the interweb before long so thought i’d just show a few pictures of the build.

Oh, one thing i will say though, this thing is huge, here is mine parked next to a previous Cosmos S mod for comparison though given its size i think a few will be a tad disappointed that according to the manual, it can only accommodate two 240 radiators (one in the base and one in the roof) which simply isn’t enough in my opinion for a case this size which is why mine now has two 240’s in the base and a 480 in the roof.

I had hoped the first of the dual LGA2011 CPU boards might have coincided with the Cosmos II release but they are still a little way off yet so decided to use the SR-2 system from a previous mod for the time being as i tried an X79 ATX board in there and it honestly looked like a little micro board and wouldn’t of done the case justice to be honest.

Anyway, here’s my little addition to the Cosmos II release.

Not wanting to bore anyone to death but just to mention a couple of things - to get a 480 radiator in the roof i had to do a little surgery to the chassis and also added vents to the sliding top thingy which hides the buttons and houses the fan controller PCB to let the air in to the radiator.

The fan controller PCB connects to the buttons via a 6 centimetre ribbon cable so i had a hunt around and found some 22 centimetre ones in a US store so i could mount the PCB out of view on the back side of the 5.25 drive cage.

I also added a matching curved plexi window to the sliding thing at the front which was meant to show the bay res shining through the red liquid but i think i used too dark window film LMAO, so i need to find some lighter or take it off all together but i like the way the black matches the case for the time being.

Its also worth mentioning that due to the motherboard locating so close to the ceiling of the chassis, you can also only use a slim radiator like the XSPC EX series as anything thicker will hit the motherboard and those hoping to run push/pull, forget it.

At the time that Coolermaster decided to release the Cosmos II (3rd January) Kingston didn’t actually want me to post any pictures of their new HyperX Red memory as they weren’t releasing it until CES around a week later so asked if i wouldn’t show the system side on until then so obviously i obliged smile.gif

Anyway, back from CES slightly worse for wear but still in one piece......just stun.gif

Kingston announced HyperX Limited Edition Red DDR3 memory so i guess its safe to show a few side view pictures now thumb.gif

The quality of these pictures is amazing. Are you taking them inside a studio?

Beautifully done in my two favorite colors. Love seeing computers that cost more than my car

This is beautiful, if I ever get money for another build then I'll build something similar to this.
