    i see better how you are going to assemble the whole.
    Sorry but your filter is a colander, there are air holes. Will you be able to clean your front filter and radiators easily ?
    The front panel is mounted on very strong magnets, not screws, good idea :thumb:
    Your custom cables (red and gray) are beautiful, what is it as a manufacturer ?

    I have a cat so these filters are mainly meant to protect against his fur.
    I clean my pc once a weak so it isn't problem for me to clean radiators etc :)

    Cables are made by my friend from Poland, he is passionate about such work so he does it very thoroughly and well for a small amount of money. Here is his topic with all cables which he did: CLICK

    For set with ATX 24 (30 cm), EPS (60 cm) and 2x PCIE 8 PIN (45 cm) I paied him 60 USD. I have alu holders but with black acrylic holders it is 10 USD cheaper.

    It's surprising how little space is done inside such big case after a few modifications. After assembling all the water cooling elements it will get really tight.

    @ciaognep
    Its a big case with big arms and big feet, that's what makes it charming.
    The problem of this first Cosmos is the almost nonexistent air flow but with modifications we manage to do something good. :thumb:

    I agree. I had first COSMOS too and airflow was terrible, now in My current cosmos is installed 11 fans and airflow is phenomenall even on 450-600 rpm. When I will finish water cooling the number of fans will increase to 15 :)

    Ok, now I have all parts so I started yesterday with some of it.

    I must say that Ultitube is a big piece of glass. Look great but it is realy huge and heavy :O

    I must drill some holes for Ultitube with D5 and change something in ZOTAC's backplate because oryginal backplate is too high and waterblock dont fit perfectly.

    I bought barrow flow metter but I decide to use AC QUADRO with their HIGH FLOW meter. Aquasuite will be good to manage this all loop.


    I will add some more pictures later or tommorow because this is all what I did yeasterday. Lots of work with it....

    Let's see how the custom loop will be!

    very clean, upgrade after upgrade your cosmos became really beautiful, but :idea:, unless my eyes deceive me, I am a bit surprised about your loop, it looks like the CPU and the GPU waterblocks are coupled like in a single block...it's the first time I see this way to link CPU and GPU blocks, I never thought this could be an option so I am puzzled...though, result is very nice :thumb:
