Update!!!

It's been a while since I've updated the Cosmos build, but here it is .... the long awaited update
Where were we... the sleeved cables. For the Sata cables I've made 2​​ openings





Sleeved some Sata cables



First four sata placed



Second layer on top



It's all a bit messy now, but this will be better ;) It need to be as tight as possible ...





To get this so tight, I drilled some holes on the back from the mobo for the tyraps



Tightly folded around the edge





I will not use them all, but I dont want free sata slots.

In the front there are still some open holes, So I've cut some mesh for this









Placed the acrylic cover back again





I wanted something more for the "fins" on top, so for this I have pasted some DI-NOC







Looks better. To have the same DI-NOC effect in the front I have also pasted the slide panel





And now the big moment ... making the loop ready for filling. For this I have cut the hard acrylic pipe and placed it



Checked the remaining tubes etc.



All connected...yes, fill it up



Fill Port right above is to fill the first loop. Never mind the silver shiny stuff, don't have any black left and don't wanna buy new. This is not in sight ;)



And then it was really time to fill it with... Mayhem Pastel Ice White









Starting to get full











Nice color isn't it



Just one more loop, but not today :)

Thank you, Hope you like the front?







Tonight I spent some time to the front. I changed the plan to put the usb and other stuff into the front regarding the looks and the space behind the panel.



I think this looks better now without the, usb stuff and without the touch buttons from the Aquaero. These doesn't look good and do not work properly in my opinion

So i've cut 3 pieces of 3mm acrylic. The first one looks like this



And two of them like this. One of them with a smaller recess for the display



Everything put together



The touch buttons I do not need because I can set everything with the remote control. And once set I usually do nothing more with it, just look at the temps. The remote has a good range like this, so it's okay



Placed in the Cosmos







Power on





I doubt whether I'm going to put black or carbon on the acrylic.

The wurst thing happened to me .... lost the flat cable connecting the PCB push button and the controller.
In the beginning I was thinking that I must put the flatcable somewhere save before I lose it.
So I've lost it :(. Fortunately there was Ruud from Coolermaster, who still has parts of the Cosmos
Cooler Master Europe Store for all your spare parts.
Ruud... thanks man!





And everything is online again







Inverse color display is a nice thing



slide panel closed again, nothing to see anymore



Cable management is still a big mess, but this is how I placed the controller







This will become more organised ​​;)
Drilled a hole for the switches and HDD LED



And I have cut a 3mm black piece of acrylic to make a cover for the side bay, I don't like holes and slots :) So this will disappear.



Made a second layer and cut out the form of the CM push buttons.



Placed the first layer back



Second layer on top



Past some black film on the second layer



And the result



Nice, tight and the good color.
I also been busy with the XL window for the Cosmos. What appeared to be quite a challenge because lots of plastic and little space

The acrylic window I've made ​​1cm larger as the existing hole.











Need to put more pressure on the edges , but this is how it becomes

For pasting the metal cover back on the plastic, I used contact adhesive. This is because I don't have to much space for double sided tape, and it just needs to be good. Placed everywhere clamps and other stuff, which will stay on for a night. And need to make the inside a bit nicer. Ofcourse after installing the window wanted to see how it looks.







And also have been playing with the enlightened midplate for some nightshots. I'm also thinking to put some lights in the midsection or top.











That's it for now...Grtz.

I'm glad you are changing the USB port layout that was driving me nuts. Slick!

Thanks, made it a bit more white in the top. Hope you like it ;)

Me too, didn't like this from the start :)









This will become 1 of the last Cosmos updates my friendly followers. Just one more to go, the pro photoshoot.
The Cosmos is as good as finished now. It was a very nice build, partly because the Cosmos was allready in my possession before he was in the shop, and that the kick-off exactly started with the big Cosmos II release.

For this a deep bow for Cooler Master, EKWB, ZOTAC and IT service.be. Thank you again for the confidence and support.

The last small things in this last update.

The white front I covered with black film, which looks better then the white acrylic. But with some white lines still visible.





All side panels opened and the big, big Cosmos exhibited



A great modular power supply, the Cooler Master Hybrid 1050W











Enough connections :)



And enough space left, which comes in handy for the excess length of the cables





Some cable management



Side cover is placed with the HDDs







Because it was too dark inside, I have placed a single CCFL in a custom bracket that I have bolted to the 360 ​​rad using the existing holes. Now was to bright, so I made it ​​softer with a small piece of white paper.



Finalized the sleeved cables, a little tightening etc.







Total shot of the PCI-e SATA 24pins and sats



And the internal end result







And my favorite picture



Next update....Final photoshoot ;)

I am slack-jawed with pure amazement, and a hefty dose of respect! You have created a masterpiece out of what is, in my opinion, a rather "meh" case!

I absolutely freaking love the color scheme, as it's very similar to what I am setting up. I imagine that you are quite busy, but I would be extremely grateful for some tips/ideas regarding my Switch 810 build, via PM.

*Bows*

Wow. Now I want Cosmos II even more. lulz. Unfotunately, it's far too expensive for me, as anything more than $125 is, but that doesn't stop me from drooling over cases like this. :laugh:


How many hours, do you think, from start to finish? I see you do this pretty often, and keep coming up with original ideas, that itself deserves some respect.;)
