    Looks good already, but I'll wait until you've got your cable management sorted out, to vote.
    Right now, just because it's a simple and clean system, and that's what I love, I would probably give a 7 or 8, with cable management, an extra point, me thinks, since it's a tough case to do great cable management with.

    If you've got more details about the loop, and how you've secured the radiator up top, I'd like to know, since I've been thinking of watercooling my system for a while now, and the Cosmos seems a good case for such a thing.

    Really nice rig, the new pump rez combo look awesome, I also like the paint work & placement of the rads, smart build.

    Holy; overkill on the Radiators dude! You must be operating in a really hot environment or something.

    I like it!

    ??

    Im about to build a similar rig very soon. I will be using the same case. ( Oh and by the way... you can get that side window from newegg =] )

    I have a question about the radiators.. well the one you mounted inside the case on the top. What brand is it and did you have to modd the case any to get it to fit? I was going to buy the swiftech kit with the dual radiator.. but im not sure if it can be mounted in a horizontal position on top of the case. here's the link for the LCS im buying for the case.. if you or anyone can help me out it would be nice i just need to know mainly if its going to work mounted atop of the case on the inside. thank you

    CPU: 90°F (Wolfdale @ 4.5) 500x9 @ 1.57v
    GPU: 106°F (8800GTS 320mb)

    Actual temp: (Full) Without peltier (thermoelectric module)
    Room: 79°F

    cant look at your worklog, because log in is needed just to view, & everything is not my language, do you have some top secret webpage, that login is needed just to read a worklog.
