Looks realy sci-fi..... I love the exterior! very high end looking rig!

the only thing I did not like that much is the choice of water tube colors! I just don 't like red and blue, together, for a theme like yours... I would keep it red and simpler! 8/10

i second that, the colour of the tubes really dampens the whole thing. it should have been one straight colour

Hmm...it seems a lot said the same, so i might probably do dat when i have a chance. Just wondering, will red n yellow look better?

Both loops transfer a lot of heat. the i7 n the northbridge is hot on their own, let alone the gtx280s. That's why I run the dual loop.

I am sorry my mistake (and my question was dual loop on the graphics because I though it is a dual but after close inspection I saw it is an odd single ) ... any way why did you use 2 90degree fittings on the second card especially from the first to the second card

8/10 it looks great and I like the mods but the tubes make it look messy if you could clean it up some that would be awesome. Other than that this PC looks great!!! keep it up!

I tend to build simple and more plain. But I enjoy seeing colorful examples like this, good Job.

very very nice. i luv how that looks. and the colors of red and orange are very brigth and apparent, and a nice change over green or the common blue. very nicely done 10/10 in my book. Did you actually custom paint that? if so that was a really great job on it as well.

no space :D Between the first card n the second card, without a 90 degree rotating barb like dat, i wont be able to put the tubing into the card. I had no choice but to do it since the blocks didnt line up n I cant connect them together.

Looks really amazing good work! My opinion for the tubing/inside: Try to make it as red as you can.

You couldve modded it or something to fit that rad hanging outside fit inside.. Rads at the back for me really is a turn off

7/10. like the system. don't like some components for example I would of chosen different waterblocks and radiators and I really didn't like the full coverage waterblocks on the GPU you could of bought 2x Swiftech MCW60-R2 saved over a $150 got better temperatures and put that money into something else, fan controller and power supply. overall too much flash not enough custom work. so much sheet, acrylic or even small mods can be done to this case all you did was paint it.

Mind sharing with me how to mod the case to fit a 360mm rad into the cosmos s other than the top or the front (with bays still available)?

Thanks man :) yeah it is cluttered due to the dual loop. Next time i might have to use a more compact pump so i can position them better.

True, I could've done that, and it was actually my planning but since i got the blocks for cheap, i only added about $100 more and they look cleaner. Fan controller? I already have one in front in case you missed that. PSU? I dont need anything higher than 1000 watt, its just a waste of money. I'm not into spending weeks n months to mod a case with acrylic etc etc...i wonder what small mods you talk off though. Thanks for your input.

Well you can sell the MCR320 and score a thermochill PA 120.2 since theyre pretty much the same in thermal performance. Place it at the bottom..

pretty much like what this guy did:





Only consumes one bay.. downside is that you have to cut at the bottom.. or if a rotary tool or nibbler tool is not your thing, you can drill holes to make a vent on the bottom.

even if you got the blocks for a bargain I wouldn't use them they are inefficient, yes the NZXT Fan Controller see the Fan Controller Bjorn posted in the picture above? it's a Zalman ZM-MFC1 Plus should of used that it's cheaper has more watts per channel better build quality and less problematic, not talking about the wattage talking about the build quality it's manufactured by Enhance I would of chosen a Channelwell manufactured Power Supply.

i'm going to make some assumptions if i'm wrong feel free to correct me 1) those Fans on the Radiator are AC Ryan or some other LED model like the Front Intakes, do not use LED Fans ever. 2) you are using a commercial coolant, all you need is distilled water and pt nuke -phn. 3) 6 Fans on a Swiftech 120mm x 360mm is probably unnecessary since the Radiator doesn't respond well to High Pressure 3 in pull configuration is fine otherwise buy a new Radiator (probably a better idea)

get involved with the case modding community on other forums lots of professionals have worked with this case I think once you realize i'm right you might want to sell a lot of your components and start over maybe with a new case since the Cosmos S isn't very ideal for modding, get inspired take a challenge create a "aquarium" theme select a new case. i'll give you a example of a easy mod that should be done to all cases with solid expansion slot covers purchase a pack of these they will increase air flow these shed Video Cards temperature 1-4'c the heat that radiates off your Power Supply and Video Cards will be forced out the expansion slot from the Front Intakes and Top Fans on the Radiator (if they are in pull configuration).
