With the 270/pump you would have 1/2 inch head room at top with a 240/56mm rad at top. With out that rad, plenty of room And the back fan needs to come out. Just screw it to the out side.

Is the dual 240mm radiator enough cooling for the CPU and GPU? or should I get a second radiator?

 

A dual 240 with a good amount of airflow is allright for what you have.

Alright someone talk me out of the cosmos 2 case before I order it lol it's stupid expensive but very spacious. How easy might it be to mod a window Into the side?

i dont think the cosmos 2 has the value that the enthoo primo has.

Why is that
post #16 of 20
first and most important, the primo was designed as as a water cooler's case whereas water cooling with the cosmos2 was an after thought. cooler master just wanted the title of "biggest pc case that is not a caselabs"

here are the reviews
Enthoo Primo
Cosmos 2

much better case in many users opinion and saving $60 to buy for water cooling gear is always a plus

Well I decided to say F it and put the B in horizontal for now until I wanna pony up for a bigger case. Newest issue. The radiator fans will not turn on, any ideas? Do I need a separate switch. They are plugged in the fan spots on the mobo.

Update!

I took out the Photon and replaced it with the double chamber XSPC reservoir and mounted it the back. added some fans/controller and some cathods.
