BORG COSMOS II - Reboot: Borg Cube Panel Part 01

Here is my new build !
Its my personal system this time that is getting a facelift !

BORG COSMOS II

And back to Star Trek, my first love ! My favorite badguys were always the BORG. Half man / Half machine, NO merci, Adaptive shields and a killer one liner : RESISTANCE IS FUTILE !!!

here are some pics that i used for inspiration.

Man that case is big ! I just love the quality and design of the COSMOS II










I have got some idea's but nothings fixed on this one. No sponsors again so no rules , just having fun and thinking it all up as we go!

Now to post some work pics
Let me know what you think !

OK, I am not going to bore you with taking apart a Cosmos II. That has been captured so many times now !

My plan was to put 2 x 480 radiator in the bottom of the case. But the PSU was posing a problem. I was planning on making a false bottom to house it but the i stumbled upon Vandalo's BRILLIANT idea! This is so much more stylish and completely takes away all the problems I had. I think we will see this configuration many more times! (I only think its fair to credit him with the link to his work here ) Only thing I did was to place a additional layer of plexi for some bling !






I was able to squize a couple of 480 rads out of the budget. Also the John Lund reservoirs just stuck in my mind from the first day i saw them over 2 years ago. I just had to wait for the right project to come along to use them !




On to the next job. I want to continue the green UV reactive plexi line I created with the PSU. So after a couple of hours of sawing filing and sanding it was ready !


Here I lit up the plexi with a front cathode. The idea is to cover it up with a vinyl sticker and place a UV led strip underneath.




Placed both the radiators and made a couple of coverplates. Again a lot of sawing and filing but Aluminukm is such a great material to work with!




Perspective ..
















To place the SSD's I use the bending bench to work a piece of alu. Fits beautifully !




Cause I am paying for it all and not using any sponsors, i had to take out the UD7 and 2600k out of the EURISKO. Still pretty good hardware and with this cooling power It will clock nicely !






HA , that is why I NEVER throw anything away (to my wife's delight!) I had to find a way to cover up the fittings of the reservoirs. That's where the pile of old HDD platters come in.




And sometimes you just have to be a little lucky. How is this for a perfect fit?








Just a quick couple of shots with a large UV cathode.










Also was able to score a third 580 gtx and a old line EKWB block. Just have to think on something for the SLI bridge that sticks out like a sore thumb






On to the next job, placing the UV led strip underneath the front grill of the COSMOS.




Just had to slightly dremel the inside to make it wedge a little and keep it into place!








Placed the Antec proquiet fans on the 480's


Sticker Time !!!








And that was it for this update !
More to come soon !

Thanks ! Yeah maybe I should add Star Trek or something to the title to make it more clear.
The green UV plexi and the dark stature of the CosmosII is gonna probably make this my favorite machine in my house.

Thank you! The idea is to have several "layers" of uv plexi that will change the design according to the way you look at it. Well, something like that, lol

What he said ^^ LOL
As far as I know it does exactly that and no possibility of thortage too!

Here is another update from the work I have so far !

For the 2 x 480 rads in the bottom I need more air into the case. The front will have a 120mm fan pulling freshair in from the front and I cut a whole into the bottom so the 8 x 120mm fans on the rads can suck clean air in from the bottom.


I also received the vinyl BORG logo sticker and cut a piece of UV reactive to the right size.


I cut the SSD holes into the plexi and placed a piece of alu behind it.
I already have 2 x 90Gb in Raid 0 for max performance and am looking to score a 240 for storage.


This needs a lot of detail filing but I will not bother you with it !


I will hook up the led strips to an arduino so I can adjust the light strength. Way to bright now!


The BORG logo for in the door.


That was it for today !
Laters!

Here is another update !

I started on cutting out the rough shape of the plexi plate with the vinyl sticker.


Then after endless filing it finally fitted perfectly !






Mounted back the front onto the cosmos. It just needs some lighting now !




Mounted the top led strip and the "rib" led strip for a quick fitting.




I will make the bottom section like the top with the plexi strip around the psu.
The purple glow will disappear as soon as I lightproof the door.
Also the lines around the logo will be clean as I lightproof it.


Let me know what you think so far !

Thanks! It wasnt on purpose the purple but its growing on me also. Maybe when I hook it up to the arduino The brightness will be less and its will blend in more.

Thanks. The PSU fan needs to be turned around anyway as i need to suck air through the PSU instead of blowing it into. 2 problems with changing the fan out. 1. Its a 135mm fan, dont think anyone makes them with leds. 2. becausse I need to turn the fan around the leds will be pointing inward. Good idea though! Keep em coming!

Thanks! The lighting needs to be balanced as I do like lighting but it needs to blend in not dominate.

Here is another weekend update !

Made the alu cover plate and a plexi strip around the mobo




The reflective properties of the HDD platters are gonna create more depth and angles into the design!




Cant decide if I am going with the black or uv green tubing.


I am leaning towards green so I will leave it in for now.




That was it for this weekend. Maybe a small update tomorrow.

Ok, guys. I was getting a little worried about the amount of green in the case.
With the green tubing (still havent decided yet) and the green coolant and the green plexi. It might just be a little much.
Also green tubing with the BORG. never seen that before.

So I tried this.
I got a box of PE flexible hosing normally used for electriocal work and cut it open.


Dont look at the exact cuts yet, just did this in like 10 minutes or so, just to get an idea for the effect.






What do you think? Changes the whole feel of the case doesnt it ? But does it change it in the right direction ?

I think with green lighting, acrylic sections and seeing the green fluid in the blocks, i think there will be enough green for you to safely use all black on the tubing... or spray the tubing a gun metal/dark silver colour.
Thanks man ! I am researching a more natural cracking of the tubing right now. I might airbrush a little silver on the edges making it look like torn metal, but that is just an idea right now!

In your case, it does look cool, but on a couple of the bends its gone 'fat' and makes it look a little unprofessional (probably only noticable because the finish of the rest of the build is so good).

I wanted to ask you by the way, what do you use to cut the aluminium (and how thick is it?). I've been loving acrylic recently, but that's just because its so easy to work with.
Thanks ! This was done with a tubing cutter and took exactly 10 minutes. Will make a more natural design and use a dremel for precision. That will make it look better. Also by placing the cust "strategically" the fatness will disappear. Or i might have to put a "tension band" on the backside to force it into place (do you understand what i mean here ?)

Maybe this picture will help.

At the white arrows all the pressure is the same as the tubes are all connected together.
At the blue arrows all the pressure is the same they are all connected together and no collant can flow back into a block .
(this is where I need to test out the config as I have not yet seen anyone integrating the SB block also and the restriction might be different)

Equals awesomeness
Yeah! I reached out to Lee Woods to request the best way to get to the right colour.
He suggested the UV green and emerald green dye so i already tot that in House.
But mixing in black is also a good idea. If the emerald doesnt deliver, i'm going to try that!
Thanks man!
