    It doesn't fit natively in the 600T, but you're "only" able to fit an additional 240mm in the Cosmos II without getting creative anyway.

    One 360 is enough tho no need to get a additional 240 into it

    Enough for 3930k + GTX 680? I use 360+240 for i5 2500k + GTX 680, lol. I should probably add another GTX 680, since the processor hardly needs a lot of cooling anyway. (What with Sandy Bridge usually hitting voltage limit before thermal limit.)

    Ye 360 is enough too keep 3930k + 680 cool (atleast too a friend of mine and watercooling system building is his job :P)
    I got a Swiftech MCR320-XP eXtreme Performance Radiator + a Laing D5-MCP655 12V and XSPC Acrylic Tank Reservoir.

    SB-E doesn't exatly functoin the same as SB, there is a "sweet spot" where they are more stable than stock, this seems to be around 4.6 with 1.4-1.5v, you can go beyond that, but you will never be as stable, and you will hit a thermal limit first

    if you're friend really did that, then he would have told you to not buy the Cosmos II, its not a very good case for watercooling, nor would he have let you go with an XSPC res

    That's nice to hear, but I wasn't trying to imply anything about SB-E in the quote... ouo;

    Compared with SB, where voltage will end up killing a chip before you hit thermal limit (assuming you're not being outright stupid with your cooling that is).

    I dunno, the Cosmos 2 has a lot of potential but there certainly are better choices out there. XSPC make some great reservoirs for the low end (and in the UK, they used to be one of the few that made affordable ones -- in fact, they still are one of the only ones) but they're not what i'd recommend either unless you're on a real strict budget. His friend may do system builds for a living, but as many of the regulars know, you can get better advice on most forums than you can "from friends" or from shops.

    To be fair, with the price of the Cosmos 2, i'd grab a Caselabs case. Their low end cases seem to be a similar price and they're truly beast watercooling cases. Their high end are much more expensive, but you pay for what you get.

    He doesnt go over cases he goes over watercooling i made the choise for Cosmos 2 because i like the looks and tbh its very good for watercooling it has lots of space and u can place 3 radiators into the case if you want i dont know why many people say its not a good case for watercooling because i find it to be a fantastic case for it i know its not cheap but i got the money so it aint a problem also the XSPC Acrylic Tank Reservoir is in combo with a Laing D5-MCP655 12V that Reservoir doesnt fit on any other pump.[COLOR="red"]

    Ofc did i not only take advise from my friend but also took advise from the forums where i order all my watercooling supplies and since i took a Laing D5-MCP655 12V they advised me too take XSPC Acrylic Tank Reservoir eventho i wanted to go with a different one.

    I was actually rather disappointed with the Cosmos II, dispite it's size, there is very little it can do without a good amount of case modding, the top does not natively fit a 360 rad, (as you can tell by the screw hole placement, nor can you do push, or push/pull, the top is pull only) and there are some QA issues with the side panel latches, along with a bad fan controller ( pulse style, instead of variable voltage)

    I'd agree that caselabs is a better choice, but water isn't really needed anymore, even if you fit 4 680s in, they will still be within temperature spec under full load

    XSPC's bay res has the same cracking issue as most others, the only one I've seen without this is the Koolance, but it is milled from a solid block of acetal

    Which doesn't really change that for a 300 dollar case, the original fan controller is shit. When you fork over that much money, I expect the stuff is actually remotely useful, which it turned out not to really be.

    The difference is almost 1/4, I suggest you not laugh at other poster's for how much they pay for a part, it's very rude.

    Good for you then. But newegg.com for example has it at 350 dollars, and its release retail price was around 300 dollars.
    EDIT: And tigerdirect.com is 340 dollars. Performance-PCs.com is the same.

    My brother personally paid 2500 NOK (which is about 420 dollars).

    If i calculate it my case would cost 282 dollar but 350 is insane lol that would be 285 euro xD

    And that's why I think the case is honestly pretty damn poor for its price.

    As I have no working camera as of now, (Lumia died out, completely) you're going to have to just see the specs on this laptop.


    Core i7-3610M
    GTX 670M
    8GB Kingston 1600hz RAM
    500GB HDD, with 4GB SSD I believe, installing a 60 gig SSD on it tomorrow.

    Costed $1950, now I have something for DHS & DHW, aswell as my 2x trips to Greenland every year, very pleased with this laptop so far.
    No Windows/Nvidia/Intel stickers to ruin the colours of the laptop, which is a nice plus!
