Good Luck

I know F-16's are soon to be on their way out, I was under the impression F-4's were no longer in the fleet haha. Sad considering I'm an aircraft mechanic lol. Oh well, at least I don't work KC-135's or C-130's *shudders*. I love the 17, it barely breaks hard, although I did get to watch one relieve itself of it's number 2 hydraulic system out here in Kuwait haha.

Chozart looks awesome!! I like the inside done in black. Is he going to hit the hard drive bays or are they going to stay silver?

Don't forget to clean your intake filters on the bottom of your case!!! I just discovered them myself, as this big turd weighs a metric ton....i made some custom stand offs that lift the thing off the desk another 3 inches to make sure i get enough air into the intake, and it makes it alot easier to get to them. When it was shipped to me the top two fans were blowing into the case...i flipped them to blow out and temps are a few degrees cooler...i would like a more powerful one for intake....any suggestion? No mods for me yet, as i can't bring myself to take a saw to such a pretty case.....maybe later....

Nice WC setup for your first build! And to the guy wanting different fans, I suggest checking out some Scythe's, they have a few different styles you may like.

Anyone had any issues with the back panel not closing properly when wires are tucked back there? I found it difficult to get on when the 24pin ATX cable went around the back.

That's why I'm getting a Ultra X3 1000w PSU (flat cables) when I get my Cosmos.

Great power supply; it's the one you can see in my picture on the last page. The fact that ultra has a patent for it being completely modular is great, as are the flex-force cables!

I have 8 fans running in the cosmos s + the door fan.

I used 3 thermaltake icages on the front. I also had to buy an additional 8 pin eps extension to get the 8 pin to run behind the motherboard.

I also had to maneuver cables around a bit to get the back door on smoothly.

I also had to remove the fans from the inside of the top of the case and move them to on top of the case, otherwise you can't use the top drive bay (dvd drives and icages etc bang into it)

One thing I can say is that from a wiring perspective, this case is amazing. I had the coolermaster stacker 830 which is a really great case but it had horrible wiring. I think the big issue is that cases with removable motherboard trays cannot route wires easily.

Hey Alex I had trouble with that as well. I had to cut the foam out of the door to get it to close properly. I did not have to cut all the foam out just in certain areas.

Good Luck

the cosmos s fortunately does not have the foam (it is louder though)
