Cosmos RC1000 fan mod?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well, i'm contemplating sending my Coolermaster Cosmos RC1000 off to www.aqua-pcs.co.uk for a small mod (since i have neither time, patients or skill).

I want some kind of way of putting 4 x 120mm fans into the side panel so they blow into the case. Any idea what would look nice on the outside of the case to partially disguise them?

Or, any other ideas?

I don't think that the side fans are worth it. They would disrupt too much airflow to make it worth it. Better mods for them to do would be to

1. Add another 120mm intake front fan, assuming you already used some drive bays for one.

2. Change the HD tray, since right now it sucks. Have the HD's go horizontally.

3. Make place for 3 fans at the top.

Well, it currently only has one intake that blows upwards from the bottom of the case, so i didn't think it would create any problems.

I have 4 hard disks that take up a lot of space. And, i want to send the side panel off, not the entire case. That would cost a lot, lot in postage!

See above about postage.

I have the same case, I think 4 fans in the side panel isnt going to be much help to be honest. If you replace the stock fans with 4 that have better airflow, that would probably be the simplest-vs-effective thing you could do, and it wouldnt require shipping off your panel to be cut up. Maybe combine that with the replacement door they sell for this case, that has a window, and change the window to mesh - just a thought. Id try the fan replacement first, and maybe add a controller.

Hmm, i have replaced the intake fan for a Yate Loon and the rest are Antec Tricool's running at 100% speed.

Maybe it's time i saved up and went watercooled.
