Cooler Master Cosmos II MbK

Sponsered by:







Hi my modding friends,

A new year begins, so a good start in terms of a new modding season
With a brand new case .... which is released right now, the Cosmos II
The new flagship of Cooler Master.

The hardware which comes in it is not known yet for sure, but it is certain that an x79 mobo and a number GTX580 GPUs comes in
And offcourse watercooled.

The color combination is going to be black, gray and white

The package was brought a month ago, the deliveryman cursed me :)
What a case and what a weight, unbelievable. My wife was pissed and called me some names I didn't heard before
So I needed to make space in my workshop to properly view the case.

The package:









First unpacking which quite a operation turned out to be



And here it is the great Cosmos II











Lots of case with a lot of space, really a true pleasure to mod this one

Cooler Master Raymen, Ruud and Marco and of course anyone who makes this possible ... Thanks!

And then moved it straight to my workshop to view and show interior
First some specifications:

-Exterior Material: Aluminum, mesh, synthetics

-Interior: Steel alloy, plastic, rubber

-Dimensions: 344 (W) x 704 (H) x 664 (D) mm / 13.5 x 27.7 x 26.1 inches

-Weight: 22 lb kg/48.5

-Maximum compatibility CPU cooler height: 190 mm/7.48 in.

-GPU-Length: 385 inches mm/15.15

-Type-M/B: Micro-ATX, Micro ATX, E-ATX, Extended ATX, SSI CEB, SSI EEB

Once dragged in my workshop and opened it immediately, I noticed how much 3.5 Drive Bay are in it
less than 13 pieces in total (2 from X dock, Mid cage for 5 HDDs, bottom cage for 6 hard drives)

The middle bay has room for 5 HDDs





In the lower HDD bay there's room for 6 hard drives which is hidden behind a beautiful fan bracket with
2 x 120 mm fan, 1200 RPM, 17 dBA







And here there is room for 6 HDD's





The PSU has shifted back for some extra space inside



And is raised a little



At the front there is space for two HDDs through the X-dock and there are three 5.25-inch drive bays available



Below this compartment, behind the mesh part there is one 200 mm LED fan, 700 RPM, 19 dBA (converted from 120 / 140 mm)
And below that there is still room for a 120mm fan for the airflow trough the lower HDD's bracket





The back has room for a 10+1 Expansion Slots

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/Cosmos%201/DSC05678.jpg[/IMG

And a 140 mm fan, 1200 RPM, 19 dBA comes with it to the rear

[IMG]http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/Cosmos%201/DSC05679.jpg

At the top is a lot of space under the mesh





This cover is very easy to remove with a screw, and below is enough space for 3 fans and wiring



There also would fit a 360 rad but for that there are some adjustments needed.
And it comes with a black 120 mm fan, 1200 RPM, 17 dBA



Also on the top there is a sliding panel. Below that there is a control panel with 7 functions
More about this in the next update











At the front there is the I / O panel with 2 xUSB 3.0, 4 x USB 2.0, 1 x e-SATA and audio in / out



And there is very good tought about the cable management





With enough holes







I could go on an d on about the case but..... now it's modding time

I removed the top mesh and made ​​a number of strips.



Which are directed obliquely backwards, this is still a rugged design and has yet to be finished ;)



Cut out the fan controller carefully







Here is coming a slot loader DVD or Bluray.



For measuring I used this one .



And made a slot for it





Where before was the sliding panel I cut and bent a piece of aluminum



Which is placed like this





And made the slot for the slot loader drive







I hope this is a good start of the new year for you ... for me it is:)

More to come!!!

Thanks my modding friends ;)

Update!!!

Today I removed al the plastic and there's not much left :D







These fanholes might become handy ;)



Also removed the HDD bays and some other stuff, now there is a lot of space left for two 240 Rads. It,s possible to put 360 rads in there but I want lots of space for the cables and tubing
The front is also cleaned





I have a nice idea for the lower compartment. For this I sawn a piece of 1mm aluminium



Bent it





With a slide angel





Covering up the whole compartment. Other side is becoming just the same



For the fanholes I had a nice idea. I really like the shape from original fanholes, so this I,m going to make in the lower panel



After some sawing and filing



Second one also done



Removed the tape









And placed the rad and fans. This cover is going to be black (I think)



Just one more to make :D

Update!!!

Just a small update before I go on a little vacation :D

I also liked the shape from the air intakes behind the mesh in the front,



so I copied that to a piece of 5mm white acrylic





And placed it. I think i'm going to place another black layer on top of it



Also made a 5mm white acrylic midplate



Maybe illuminated





That's it for now!!! coming back soon ;)

Update: The front

These last few days i've continued with the appearance of the case. I want the front to turn black / white. So I have sawn a piece 3mm black acrylic, the same pattern as the white plate. Only now with the recesses 5mm smaller.









White plate on it



I like the looks of it. Also have now some great air in/ outlets, finishing of this part later

I previously mentioned that the controller is coming in the upper 5.25 compartment togheter with the I/O stuff, all of this in the black and white theme

So marked a 5mm white acrylic piece





To keep everything in place there is coming a piece of black acrylic behind it with recesses for the controller and I/O stuff







Witch is placed like this



To get a nice contrast around the controller, I've cut and filed a edge of 3mm black acrylic



And also made two black strips cut for the I/O stuff









And placed in the Cosmos







For the lower I/O section cut rectangles and circles for the USB and audio



And after some carefully filing



Top I / O section also done, and put everything in it for the looks





Above the Cosmos controller is still a big white surface, this seems to me a nice place to put a display.
For this the perfect display: The Aquaero 5 XT. So ordered and received





Hmm that's a unpleasant surprise, the controller with touch buttons isn't black anymore (like the older version) but Aqua Computer has replaced / filled this with stainless steel buttons.







Itself is looking very nice with the new buttons... but not for this build. So first i'm going to try to get an "older" version. Until I know more I will stop working out the display.

That's it my modding friends ;)

Update

Just a small update about the cover at the right bottom.
First idea was to make this cover with a angle just like the other side, but a change of plans.
This is now becoming a straight cover, but with 2 HDD attached to it. The place for the HDD's was a bit limited because I removed the HDD cages and almost all the space is occupied by the water cooling products





So this is a nice solution. There will also be a SSD, but this is placed on the side of the 5.25 bay

For the cover I sawn a piece aluminum and marked it



Bent it



Cut out the Fanholes again





And drilled the holes for the HDDs. Of course I will make some adjustments for noise reduction



All placed like this





Also made the recess for the cables

Just a small addition:)

I've covered the two plates with black vinyl, which gives the same black color as the rest of the case








And placed them

Thanks you guys :)

Update!!!

I would like to welcome a great sponsor for this build, the shop that has everything .... IT-Service.be



IT- service/ Eddy Thanks for the nice discounts.

For this build I purchased a nice new mobo: The Asus SABERTOOTH X79

Really a great motherboard, here some pics:



Some standard stuff



And the motherboard























Placed right away in the cosmos



So the Sabertooth, really is a beautiful mobo

I also bought some beautiful rams to fill up the sabertooth, 3 x the Corsair 4 GB DDR3-1600 Kit













I will place EK ram coolers on these.
En last but not least, the white Xigmatek XOF-F1251 fans, which fit perfectly with this build





Placed on top





360 rad fits





In the last update I had shown you the white midplate, Ive adjusted it a bit for 2 pumps



Which will be placed like this





Received approval from my great friend





And also cut a white acrylic plate for the mobo tray







Beneath and beside the motherboard I have a lot of space, this will be filled up;)
I would like the same line as the EK tops, and I want a nice light distribution in terms of the illuminated midplate. For this I am going to raise the midplate about 4 cm, for this I have sawn and bent an aluminum strip cut









Behind it I placed 2 CFL lights, and we have an illuminated midplate







For an even better light distribution I will do some adjustments, but more on this later.
I've made a bracket for the rad



I still need to make the top bracket but this I will do later



Enough room for the fittings



And here the radiator with fans







Applied a layer vinyl coating to the strip





Looking good I think :D





Grtzzz ;)

Update!!!


Had some fun these days with cutting and sawing in the Cosmos:
Hole for a straight Fill-Port and also a slot for the fitting of the pump.



Holes for the gpu, s in-and outlet



A hole for the wiring of the gpu, s



And adjusted the slot for the sata



Did the same thing for the 24 pins powercables.



I also made ​​a hole in the side of the 5.25 bay



And made 2 fill-ports.



And at the bottom of the 5.25, I have made a large hole for the in and outlets of the reservoirs, etc..





All this I have covered with U-channel edge from Mnpctech.



Furthermore, did some nice things with the pump / reservoirs. All with fixed tubes;)





More on this later. I also started with the cables. For the GPU power, I have marked some holes.



Pre-drilling with 1.5mm



3mm



And 4.5mm



This is enough to go through with a sleeved wire.



For the GPU power I used extensions



And sleeved it in 4 colors. Black, titanium gray, gray and white



Other side still loose



One by one put the male connector through



Did the same thing for 24 pins cable.





And placed everything. One gpu have to wait ( need more heatshrink)

@Kier, can you give me the measures for the midplate of the case.

Because i want to do the same thing (put a acrylic on top of the midplate), and i don't know the exact measures and angles for it.

BTW: very nice pictures and rig that you have there ;) :toast:
