Cosmos 1000
6 Attachment(s)
Was thinking of buying a new case and thought why not revive an old case that I have lying around. It originally had a 240 rad in the top and bottom. Looking to drop a 360 push pull in the top with a 240 push pull in the floor and another 240 push pull in the front I know this might be over kill but well I have the around so why not.

Main Components

case: cosmos 1000,
motherboard: am3+ Asrock killer 990fx
cpu: Amd 960be
Ram: GSkill 8g ttrident 2400
GPU: ASUS hd 7970
SSD: 2x adata xg900 128g

Water Cooling Products

2x EK PE 360
cpu block EK supremecy
bitfinex 6x50watt fan controller
6 gentle typhoons 1850

first step strip down to the bare shell of a case. Looking for old cases to make my rad brackets out of. hoping this weekend I will find some in the garbage.

Well sorry for the long pause.

I cut out the top to add in a triple rad and cut the front for another triple but only adding in a xs240, waiting for someone to sell their 360 on HWC then I will change it out.

That build looks nice. I am running a modded 800D with the top and bottom cut and modded to take a 360 up top and a 240 in the bottom.

This case looks to have a bit more room in length vs my 800D and a little less on height. I still find things to be tight in my rig for routing tube, probably because my PSU is so long that there is no room for the pump in the bottom of my case, as my PSU is almost up against my 240 rad.

yeah this case was pretty big for its day. once you romove the hd bays and drive bays its a nice open space for all the goodies. really just doing this until christmas when i order a ld test bench from daz.

how is this mod coming along... i've been wanting to do a mod with my cosmos S as well.

Due to an unfortunately shipping ascendent to the cpu it was damaged. So I might take this as a sign to upgrade from a 1366 to either an amd fx 8350 or wait for the intel new cpu line up. I will try to finish the last of the things I want to add such as the front cover for the rad, and a new floor.

pick up some new parts Asrock 990fx, amd 960, trrdent 2400 ram, asus 7970.

Did a mock up with cardboard just waiting for sheet metal to come. Thinking of black wrinkle finish to the new metal.
Going to use hard acrylic tube . not sure coolant would like to do crazy lighting. Make it like the cosmos.

Just a quick updare received my two rads. One was damaged in shipping. but I luckly can hid e the damage so it can not be seen. Also ordered some primochill hard tube hittings and some uv clear tube. Plus some Mayhams auroura red coolant.

Those PE rads look pretty nice. Kinda curious to see how they will perform.
Nice set up btw
