To view this case mod, go here.



Specs:
-AMD Phenom II X4 965 oc@3.9Ghz * MSI 790FX-GD70 mobo * XFX Radeon 5870/ Sapphire 5870 1Gb * Corsair 1000HX psu * G.Skill Ripjaw DDR3 4Gb * Seagate 1.5Tb hdd/ WD 320Gb hdd * LG Blu-ray player * Koolance 340 block * DD radiator * D5 pump * Enermax and Apevia fans-

Mods:
Painted internal black and drive brackets/ thumb screws red, cut hole for 24 pin and, sleeved 24 pin only, cut internal top grill for better airflow, sound dampening on the base, cable management, cut front fan grill for airflow, water cooling.

This is my good friend Manuel's Cosmo S that I built for him. Most of the hardware was recommended by me and this rig come out to be around $3000.

As some of you know cable management is a big deal to me and it was a bit hard with this case. I wanted to cut more holes to have a cleaner look, but Manuel wanted to finish it sooner. We built this rig about 3 months ago, so I'm sorry about the dust and I hope the dirty water in the loop doesn't affect your votes :( He was a but careless when these shots were taken. Since then we have cleaned the loop and added nuke to the distilled water. Also another 4 gigs have been added for a total of 8gb Ripjaw ddr3 1600mhz.

Let us know what you think? and/or what we could do to improve it! Thank you for voting

That thing looks great! You should have told your buddy off and had him let you finish your cable management.

I didn't realize the Cosmos S was so different from the Cosmos-1000. The motherboard tray is dimpled for strength, but overall the layout is the same. The biggest difference I see is the HDD bays aren't the same.

Wow! A cosmos, so '08, long time no see a mod on it. But what you did, is amazing. The UV orange jumps out but in the right way.

Kudos! 10 by me.
