    Hello guys

    I come from Poland and I started my cosmos S mod around one year ago but I didnt have account here so thats why I am presenting it now. I bought old Cosmos S in bad condition and I decided to made some modification. Some details must be fixed but I work on it. Mod isnt finished yet, still in progress. Hardware which You can see on pictures is only to show how case looks when something is inside, I am going to use i7 6700k, gtx 1070 from MSi and WC for CPU.

    Some pictures are bad quality because when I was starting I had poor camera, now my camera isn't very good too but much better than before.

    My English isn't perfect so please forive me if I will say something wrong :/

    It's my first seriously project so please don't be too strict, it cost me a lot of time and work :p I hope You enjoy it ;)

    If You have questions, ask ;)

    Wow. Looks stunning with the full side window in place and the illuminated Cosmos logo shinning through. Black and red is very pretty. Well done it's a very nice build.

    I like the work you have done but it's a gloss overdose for me. It's all well executed but the use of gloss on absolutely everything cheapens the look a little.

    I know that realy much people use only matte painting in expensive mods but it doesn't fit to my conception. In my opinion matte painting is good for cases like Lian Li, TJ07 etc, for me Cosmos always was this kind of case which looks like from space, like from another planet, so thats why I chose glossy painting, but it isn't cheap spray from market, I use spray only for small elements like screws, mesh etc, all other elements are painted expensive car lacquers (2 layers of base, 3 layers of color and 1 layer of gloss). Maybe it looks a little cheap on the photos but in real it deffinitly doesn't looks cheap, every person whose saw it was very impressed. However I undrstand that not everyone like it and I respect that ;) Thanks for comment.

    Hi everyone

    I wasn't here loooong time because I had problem with login. I do a lots of things from 2016. Now my cosmos looks much more different than in 2016. I prepare it for water cooling and change some elements, custom cables, holes for filports etc.

    Hardware:
    Z390 aorus master
    I7 8700k select 5,2 GHz 1,37V (delid)
    Zotac gtx 1080 ti amp extreme
    Trident Z 2x8gn b-die 4133 MHz 16-16-16-32-2T
    CORSAIR MP300 480gb + 960 gb
    Corsair RM 650x
    Master liquid 240 lite

    Here some photos

    I was young and I jus wanted modified case. Now I have good paied job and small buisness, I like small details which make a project clean and perfect, custom cables, black screws etc.

    I am going to use alphacool xt45 radiators with push and pull configurstion, 360 on top and 420 on front. I must cut some elements if I want to fit 420 radistor in 5,25" bays. I will use AQUACOMPUTER Ultitube 150 with d5 motor, alphacool fittings and some other accesories. I have CPU and GPU block from BYKSKI, They have very good and nice block for my GPU.

    I don't post all modification which I did because it is around 500 photos, too much for one post after 4 years :)

    More info soon :)

    I had to buy a new one because in the old one I've already made so many holes and various modifications that it was more profitable to buy a new one than to refresh the old one. I paied.... 15 USD for complete case :D Some guy found it in the attic, it was unused for a long time and he wanted to get rid of it so I take it from him, great deal for me :E

    I am interested too how it will work with bykski waterblocks. Zotac has fantastic core cooling (61C after 2h of furmark and fans on 1100 rpm!) but horrible VRM cooling, 105C.... I use gelid gp-extreme thermalpads and moddified VRM radiator a little bit, and now i Have 82C max, but it isnt good for such big 3 slots cooler. I hope after use water cooling all temps will be much better. 360+420 with 12 fans should be enough for this monster ;)

    To me alone it seems that the logo reads as COSTOS? :eyebrow:

    Well... I never looked on it this way :p

    He is a good boy but He likes screws a little bit to much, I need a lot of spare screws if Diego is around.


    Alphacool fittings are on the way and soon I will be able to mount some elements in the case's basement. Maybe in 2 weeks I will have 2 XT45 radiators and a Aquacomputer Ultitube with D5 motor.

    You don't use a dust filter on the front and above ?
    The front fans don't make too much noise ?
    You think you have enough space to put 2 radiators 360 ?
    Are you going to use flexible or rigid tube for watercooling ?

    I have dust filters behind front fans, 3x 140mm :)
    Front fans work with 350-600 rpm so no, not too much noise, absolutely. This fans start work only when the GPU temperature exceeds 50C to inject more cool air, their purpose is to filter the air, the main air draft is made by fans in the middle on the cover visible in the second picture (2x 140mm)
    I don't want to put two 360 radiators, I want to put 420 on front and 360 on top, and I have enough space for it, I am going to use xt45 radiators, behind front fans I have enough space to put 420 MONSTA and pump with top and reservoir but 420 xt45 will be enough.
    I am going to use flexible tube. I dont like rigid tube :p

    All will fit, I measured everything before :)

    One more, the front panel is mounted on very strong magnets, not screws :D

    Sory for the tragic quality of the pictures but I took them now quickly to show you how it looks inside.
