Cool Master Cosmos 1000 questions
 
I recently bought the Cool Master Cosmos 1000 and was wondering if any one had one and could help me with a few questions I have.

Is there any kind of HD coolers that would attach on the HD and still install into the HD bays? Or perhaps a fan that would fit into the HD bay?

Since the Cosmos 1000's door is not all that deep, a fan controller with knobs is pretty much out of the question. What is a reliable and slim fan controller? I've been eyeing the Aerocool Gatewatch 2 and Ultra's Fan Commander. Unfortunately I haven't found any Canadian suppliers that carry either.

Any suggestions?

P.S I wish I would have waited a bit longer before buying a case. The new Cosmos S case is pretty sweet looking.

One of these will fit in the one of the drive bays, I did it myself when I first set up the cosmos.

Also, coolermast is suppose to be offering all 1000 owners a free fan adapter to put ontop of your HDD rack, I ordered mine but never got it :(

Thank you very much for replying :) Do you know the make of the HD cooler you used? I never heard about the free fan adapter for cosmos 1000 owners. Do you have to go to their web site or something to apply for it? I bought a fan bracket from a web site in europe for $3.

The fan I show above is a vantec, it can be found here:PC CYBER CANADA - For All Your Computer Needs

The HDD fan adapter is available directly from Coolermaster, just go to the coolermaster NA website and browse to the cosmos and you will see it advertised. You have to email customer support to get it however. If you can't find any of those vantec fans just pm me, I have a couple and one new one still in the packaging.

There is no actual link, just email Cosmos North America Technical support to receiver yours:

Here is how I cool my cosmos and the HDDs. I removed the bottom HDD trays and added a fan and also added a fan ontop of the HDDs, now everything is nice and cool!

Here is how I have my new system set up at the moment. Trying to find a new heatsink/fan that will fit and replace my north/southbridge chipsets.
