    Wonderful, wonderful.

    What tube is that?

    EDIT: Nevermind... found the answer by actually READING the worklog. What gives???

    How does it hold up when the fluid heats up? You make some pretty tight bends in some of your builds. Ever had it kink up on you when the fluid gets hotter?

    Not ready yet, need to do the front, place a window in the sidepanel and some small stuff.

    I specially didnt use the tygon tube (kinks easily), but some with better stiffness. so hopefully this will work :)

    Tonight I spent some time to the front. I changed the plan to put the usb and other stuff into the front regarding the looks and the space behind the panel.

    [​IMG]

    I think this looks better now without the, usb stuff and without the touch buttons from the Aquaero. These doesn't look good and do not work properly in my opinion

    So i've cut 3 pieces of 3mm acrylic. The first one looks like this

    [​IMG]

    And two of them like this. One of them with a smaller recess for the display

    [​IMG]

    Everything put together

    [​IMG]

    The touch buttons I do not need because I can set everything with the remote control. And once set I usually do nothing more with it, just look at the temps. The remote has a good range like this, so it's okay

    Placed in the Cosmos

    Power on

    I doubt whether I'm going to put black or carbon on the acrylic.

    Lovely build. Your cable management is stunning.

    I too was wondering about the tight bends in the tubing - which looks great BTW. Have you had any experience with Tygon laboratory grade tubing?

    So crisp! I love the individual holes for the cable management, just so over the top :)

    Thanks Spreadie, Only experience is with watercooling. But for this build i've ordered 3 brands.
    Feser, Masterkleer and Tygon for testing the curves. Feser was the one with the most stiffness

    Thanks :)

    Thank you,
    Do you mean the Sata, GPU or 24pins cable? The Sata is done with zip ties behind the mobo tray, the gpu and 24pins are holding the parallel position because the individual holes. Straight lines from hole to connector.

    The wurst thing happened to me .... lost the flat cable connecting the PCB push button and the controller.
    In the beginning I was thinking that I must put the flatcable somewhere save before I lose it.
    So I've lost it :(. Fortunately there was Ruud from Coolermaster, who still has parts of the Cosmos
    Cooler Master Europe Store for all your spare parts.
    Ruud... thanks man!

    And everything is online again

    Inverse color display is a nice thing

    [​IMG]

    slide panel closed again, nothing to see anymore

    [​IMG]

    Cable management is still a big mess, but this is how I placed the controller

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This will become more organised ​​;)
    Drilled a hole for the switches and HDD LED

    [​IMG]

    And I have cut a 3mm black piece of acrylic to make a cover for the side bay, I don't like holes and slots :) So this will disappear.

    [​IMG]

    Made a second layer and cut out the form of the CM push buttons.

    [​IMG]

    Placed the first layer back

    [​IMG]

    Second layer on top

    [​IMG]

    Past some black film on the second layer

    [​IMG]

    And the result

    [​IMG]

    Nice, tight and the good color.
    I also been busy with the XL window for the Cosmos. What appeared to be quite a challenge because lots of plastic and little space

    The acrylic window I've made ​​1cm larger as the existing hole.

    Need to put more pressure on the edges , but this is how it becomes

    For pasting the metal cover back on the plastic, I used contact adhesive. This is because I don't have to much space for double sided tape, and it just needs to be good. Placed everywhere clamps and other stuff, which will stay on for a night. And need to make the inside a bit nicer. Ofcourse after installing the window wanted to see how it looks.

    And also have been playing with the enlightened midplate for some nightshots. I'm also thinking to put some lights in the midsection or top.
