    Another month and another build,this time for an OC3D member,Omega Stalker.
    This build is based around the massive CosmosII from Coolermaster,a very well appointed beast of a case!

    The theme running thru this is a white/black/copper colour scheme with some icy touches...

    Leta make a start on the cooling..

    Omega got a great deal on some Koolance rads and decided he wants to go with those,these 240 rads have a neat party trick!

    Prep and primered.

    These will be white. Thanks Koolance for making my life easier.

    Now,you cant leave the 360 on its own,it need some love too!

    Just waiting for Paints 4 u to get the white paint then i can do the rads,finish them off and turn my attention to the outside of the case.

    Large window cutouts to do,lots of interior paneling out and more tasty things....

    Today i get on with the paint triage and the dis-assembly.
    Not hard to do but you must be careful,the tab plastics are thin and wont take abuse..

    Lets start by getting those doors off,nicely made and with the best hinges i have seen on a case.

    [​IMG]

    Clear out the endless drive bays from the now rad bay.

    [​IMG]

    Magoo surveys the scrap for potential morsels...

    [​IMG]

    Greedy boy....

    Top panel.

    [​IMG]

    Separated for painting..

    The usual sharp edges from the fold tabs made me a few choice expletives a few times

    [​IMG]

    And the now exposed 360 rad mounts.

    [​IMG]

    Surgery performed and parts stacked up for prep.

    Magoo is making pointed reminders about dinner in the background....

    [​IMG]

    Oooge fan!

    [​IMG]

    So now its paint prep time,the more effort i put in now,the better the result!

    I wont bore you with all the prep photo's when im done,you must of seen that kind of thing endlessly now....

    i have to agree. all those cirrcles are hideous on a block of any kind. or pump. i have seen very few builds with 'em. and thats when le pumps are hidden.

    Yep,a piece of the golden years...

    If the whole loop is CSQ then it doesnt look so bad,im a Watercool guy myself.

    There is going to be a 2mm thick polished copper cover going over the top of the pump top,just the inlets will be seen,i want to get rid of the recesses for the screw in res.

    Take one plain looking EK dual top..

    [​IMG]

    Add copper and a whole lot of manual metal working...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This piece needs to be hit with a bench buffer before it goes on,i have seen one at a good price so that will be my next purchase for the 'lab'
    There will be a matching piece for the pump side too,should look good when its done.

    Its roughed out,I need to take some fine files to it to finish it off.
