**Cosmos S little mod for 38mm fans & new WC setup build log done!(new pics 3/20/09)**

Hi guys and gals,

After reading though stuff and from your guy's big help, I decided to put together some WC parts and start my custom set up. I will be modding my Cosmos S to fit some 38mm fans in the fan compartment on top(at least will try, might need your guys's help) and setting up my WC setup. I will be taking pics to give you guys back the favor
. I really appreciate all the help


More pics will follow as I go with the setup, so there will be more pics to come


My parts came in today from Jabtech and here is the pic:

I have to call it a night since its already late and I have to wake up in four hours to go to work. Here are some pics that I took a while ago...I was not able to make a lot of progress due to my lack of preparation. I had to run to my local store 3 times to get the stuff I need and I couldnt decide where to mount the pump and the res in my case..anyway here are the pics:

This would serve as my reducer since that fuzion barbs are 3/8" OD and my tubing is 7/16" ID



With the CPU water block attached:



With the reducer and CPU block in the case:



Black Ice GTX 360 money shot!!



Needs some more modding to align screw holes of the Ultra KaZe to the case:



GTX 360 installed on top of COsmos S:



Everything mounted except for the res:



Front view:



Here's how it looks without the top mesh...this would be the spot for three Ultra Kazes doing pull config:



I hope you guys like it..Please let me know if you guys have some suggestion. I hope its fine to post this much pics. Please let me know if I am violating some rules.. Thanks guys..
I will continue the build tomorrow after work..See Yah!!

By the way guys, is it alright that the pics I am posting have those crap links at the bottom? I noticed it and I thought its because I am using a free file hosting site.

Do you have room for the pump on the floor of your case? I like to keep it at the lowest point and my res above the pump, right over it somewhere.

What res are you using? I didn't see it in the pic's. If your going to use a t-line put it right before the pumps inlet.

I am using the Swiftech MCRES Micro v2.. I mounted the pump right on the bottom fan slot(slot behind the PSU) of the Cosmos S and I am planning on mounting it right above it as you said.

Can you please help me with the best loop arrangement?

I will be WC'ng my CPU and NB. Thanks..

Okay will do for sure!!..

The flow of the D5 starts from the top barb right? So I should start from the outlet of the res to the side barb of the D5(inlet) then up to the rad and so on right?

Thanks!!
