[CIP] Bel Air (Cosmos II) Update 22/05 New sponsor !

Hello all,
Let me introduce my new project Bel Air.

Sponsored By:




For this project i will be modding the Cooler Master Cosmos II.

I won't go to much in to details of the things that will be changing of the case. That are things that u will have to find out your self, by following this project.

The hardware for this project is still undiceited. It will all depend of the budget that is left after I'm done with the case self. I might use the hardware from my previous case mod Project White.

To cool all the hardware i will go for water cooling. This time I will do a dual loop and for this i will use copper pipes again. I know it is not something new but i just like to work with it. Plus it will fit perfect with the rest of the case and all the other details.

So lets start we have all seen the Cosmos II in one piece. For this i disassembled the case and placed all the parts on my floor witch was to small because the iron body couldn't fit on the picture







Removed the all the HDD cages + Midplate and PSU stand.



And the I/O backplate had to be removed.







Also cutted out a part out of the back of the case.





That is it for the case self. The rest u will all see later if u keep following

The next thing i have done is drawing the shape for the new air vents in the side panel. I have gotten the idea from a corvette anniversary 1978 with my own touch to it ofc



With the sketch ready i just had to get the materials to make the design. Got my self some foam to start the modeling of the air vents.



I had several attempts with different kind of tools. First one was with a knife that didn't go well.



Then i thought of making a some kind of heath wire to cut in the foam.



That plan has failed to my 12volt adapter wasn't strong enough to heat up the wire. Then i just purchased a tool to cut with.



With the new tool in the hand a started to make the venting hole in the foam.



This gives a better idea of how it will look like but still is not good enough. After some time i decided to make every piece apart if the vent.













One side is done now i only need to make a copy of it in mirror image.



And a picture of the garbage that was left behind.



That was it for this start post hope u all like. And stay tuned for the next update.

Alain

Looking really promising. That blue foam gives me shivers down my spine...wonderful to work with sometimes, but can be a real pain aswell. I've made som cars out of this stuff and the blue dust was everywhere. Looking forward to see how thosevents turn out, looking realy nice so far

Keep it up.

Had the same thoughts, also about the strength of it while keeping in mind that these vents are on the side. So you might bump against something, and the foam won't like that. Or is it a template for polyester?

Small update about the new front grill of the case. The original design of the grill wont fit with the rest of the theme.



Removed the mesh and started to cut in the plastic housing of the grill.





After that i just had to file and sand the piece before it was ready for make over.





The 4 small pieces where placed on the rest part of the grill



This will fit perfect on the place of the old grill. And it can also be removed like the original grill by just pulling on it. The only thing that i still need to so is reenforce the frame of it.



When i recieved my parts of the grill i saw that i had made a little mistake. The curves of the grill all had angles in it. Not a big problem because i can file it round and sand it afterwards



When they where done i could start shortening and number the parts.





After all the small works i couldn't help my self to sand 2 pieces with a 240, 600, 1000grid paper. After that was done i polished it to get the maximum shininess.



Placed all the parts on it.









I am 6 pieces short of the grill because i miss typed the number but will be taking care of when the rest of the parts arrive


Tot de volgende Update

Thanks guys,

Update!

I am happy to inform u that the first sponsored packages are arrived. The Packages are from Ek WaterBlocks and Highflow.


Thank u Gregor for sponsoring this beautiful cooling hardware.

Thank Freddy for the discount in the web-shop.



Started with the biggest package from EK WaterBlocks first.



EK-Supreme HF - Full EN (Nickel)





EK-CoolStream RAD XTC (140) and EK-CoolStream RAD XTC (420)





2x EK-DDC X-TOP V2 - Acetal G1/4



2x EK-Ekoolant CLEAR (premix 1000mL)



10x EK-PSC Adapter 90 G1/4 Nickel and 12x EK-PSC Adapter 45 G1/4 Nickel



The next package was from Highflow.



1x MagiCool COPPER Radiator 280







2x Laing DDC-1Plus MCP355 12V



To give u a idea, I have placed the hardware in the case and taken some pictures. In the bottom of the case I will place 1 140mm rad, 1 420mm rad, 2 Pumps and the PSU









In the top of the case I place the 280mm rad. That wont be visible when the case is finished.



I haven't had much time to continue with the side panels of the case. I haven taken them to my work so when I have some free time I could continue to work on it but the last weeks there was a lot of work.

But I have enforced the grill in the front of the case with 2 pieces of 5mm plexi. I glued the parts together and then filled up where it was needed.

















That was it. I hope that the next update will come sooner then this one. But it all depends how much work there is at my work
