After seeing the new Cosmos II for the first time & studying it in the flesh, I felt this was a great new chassis to carry on the Cosmos line & Cooler Master’s repetition in this product. Previously I’ve modified several Cosmos 1000 and Cosmos S chassis’s over the years for PC Format & events including CeBIT, Gadget Show etc & was keen to get started on the new case mod. Thankfully I managed to get sponsorship from a few manufacturers for the case mod. Hats off to everyone who has become interested in the project, without manufacturers and retailers coming forward to support the modding community this kind of work would not be possible The sponsors in this project include, Intel, Cooler Master, Sapphire Technology, Kingston Technology, Bitspower, EK Water Blocks, Hardware Labs, Special Tech, Phyoba, Alphacool & Bitfenix. Concept: The Cosmos II case mod is going to carry the original look of the chassis enhancing certain areas externally and internally. Ideas to date are to repaint the outer plastic surrounds and side panels in a metal flake plasma electric metallic blue, with enough lacquer so it looks like glass! (same colour as my Kawasaki ZX12-R) The four black rails and the centre section of the Cosmos II, I intend to keep black to tie in with the colour scheme of the bike. The plasma electric blue looks really sweet and again tie’s in nicely with Intel, Sapphire, Kingston alike, as the system will be a flying machine in its own right. The case mod will have some of the latest hardware, e.g Sapphire X79 Motherboard 3x HD7950 graphics cards (Tri-Fire) Intel 3960x CPU, Kingston Hyper X 256GB SSD, 16GB HyperX DDR3 memory, all powered by a Cooler Master Silent Pro 1200w PSU! The Water Cooling is mainly to the thanks of Bitspower, EK Blocks, Hardware Labs and Special Tech. Cooling for the mod will be two cooling loops, first on the 360mm radiator for the CPU etc and the second on a 240mm radiator for the 3x HD7950’s. I can’t thank Hardware Labs enough for the top quality radiators to keep the system cool. Bitspower have been great in supplying the majority of the cooling components, e.g. the dual D5 pump housing, two reservoirs and enough carbon coloured compression fittings to make a great job of the hosing. Special Tech have been wonderful is supplying the latest Koolance HD7950/70 full coverage water blocks for the two cards and matching CPU block so the cooling components should look really good being matching.
