    Welcome to my 3rd project

    This is my 3rd project, and the case that will be modified is, the stunning Cosmos SE from Cooler Master.
    This project won't be alike to the others, it won't be super filled with colors and super overrated.
    This time it's going to be more simple, slick and gentle.

    What is the pannel colors then? Black, Grey and White is the planned colors.

    This case have maybe not seen 1.000 of mods but there is quite some fine ones and as well some really spectacular Cosmos II out there.
    So I hope that I can lit up your fire of attension and hope that you will follow the progress of this long term project.

    The timeline is as following.

    Will be finished at the event of CoolerMaster CaseMod World Series 30 April

    To start it all up I've gotten the case to start measuring and tinker with the case.

    here is some photos of the great case that Cooler Master have sponsored

    The Cosmos SE!

    Just got the motherboard from the post office and it looks so nice, super simple and beautiful.
    Fits the theme of black and grey perfectly.

    I ran out of white paint!

    so I ran out of white paint, which was unlucky i'll have to go buy some more tomorrow, so no RAM or handle painting today :(
    well I decided to take the front panel and remove the first obstacle towards the new front panel :D

    [​IMG]

    Had to remove the bridge in the middle of the panel, and to do that I had some help from the best friend a modder can have, the dremel!

    [​IMG]

    And here's the result!

    "Optimus" Prime and Paint!

    So as said before I'm going to paint a few parts and here is some of the progress results!
    For starters I started out with priming the parts, which made them plain mat white,
    and then I applied some more delicate white to them.

    NOTE: Never again going to try and paint RAM, it did not end as I wanted it, so going to buy white RAM instead!

    First Coat. (Bars "Feet" and "Handles")

    After Primed and now applying white! (for more WHITE effect! HAHAA)

    I like it a lot! It looks like a build of a friend of mine. I helped him by designing and 3D printing the covers for the PSU and motherboard IO. I also 3D printed the cable combs for the build.

    Oh and I think you should change the blue LEDs of the Cosmos SE to white ones!

    That's the plan as well, :)
    Yeah the black and white color is so nice to look at, also the MSI krait is a blessing to look at when it's in the case.

    Assembly 1.0

    So assembling the painted parts and starting to look really nice!

    The GPU has also arrived it's going to be a gigabyte windforce card.
    Also the GPU is a little longer than expected so the sidetower is going to be changed slightly.
    The laser parts should be here today as well.

    So for now what do you think?

    Laser parts and GPU

    so the laser cut parts have arrived and I'll be adding them as the case is prepared for it,
    what I was able to put in right away was the side of the PSU shroud.
    as well as the gigabyte g1 gaming GPU, and the last 2 RAM modules came in as well, and it looks fantastic.

    let the photos commence!

    The Rush To The Finish Line

    so the past few days have been hectic, I've not been able to documment all of it, but here is what I've got!
    I had to make some changes to the case to make the panels fit, (design flaw from my side) and as well as that I've "created" the front panel.

    Explanation of the panels!

    The front panl is made of 2 sheets of acrylic, 1 white 1 mat black.
    the white sheet is the one equipped with hole for fans and is the sheet that hold the fans
    the black sheet is cut with a pattern that is representing molecules.

    The side panels is made of 6 sheets, 3 white background sheets, and 3 sheets with patterns on them.
    The overall theme of these patterns is the formula of nitroglycerin, and also give you a hint of the name "NitroGlycer"

    So here's the front!
    First picture is where the front panel is being pressed down, so the silicone is taking it's effect and makes it sit in place.
