    140 on the back (GPU)
    240 on the bottom (CPU)
    120 on the bottom front (CPU)

    if i get 4 hd7970s i would probably add a 240 on the bottom and maybe a 200 on the front for the GPU loop

    this is speculation atm as i dont have the case in front of me to see if any of this will work

    Those things are beautiful.

    Do you really need 360mm of rad just for the cpu? I would imagine the GPUs could use it more.

    How many HDDs/SSDs do you use? There are only two hotswap bays after all, and it sounds like what you're planning requires removing all HDD bays.

    They're all reference so far. Koolance, EK and Aquacomputer have all more or less finished their product and are moving them into stock.

    According to EK, they were surprised with the flowrate they got while maintaining a good performance. Personally, that's not why I ordered from them though, but I did order the Acetal+EN nickel anyway.

    i don't have 7970's yet, for now its just an idea im throwing around,

    im using Koolance blocks on my 590's and they are very impressive, but they are not as clean looking as the swiftech's full coverage blocks that came OEM on EVGA 590's

    if you want better cooling get the Koolance block:


    if you want it to look better, wait for a Swiftech or EK block

    I think there's an SSD adapter, so you could place it on top of an HDD.

    That would let you remove the HDD bays in the bottom and install two RX240 rads (60mm!) Then it'd be a matter of installing the RS360 in the top if I remember names right. After that you can install an RX140 over the exhaust I'd flip the fan of that last one for intake though, since the airflow would be fairly stagnant with the triple rad in the top.

    The HDD bay directly below the 5.25" would stay, where you could install all your HDDs, imo. One or two would go into the hotswap bay I imagine.

    maybe, it's all speculation atm

    the few cosmos II builds ive seen from reviewers and testers haven't been too impressive

    personally if you are going to mod a case, when you are done it should look like it was made that way from the start, and not look like some kid went to town with a dremal tool in his parents garage, the one with the modded side window is a good example, his design was looking good in the inside, but my face planted firmly in my palm when i saw the screws on the exterior

    Haha. Well, what I'm trying to propose shouldn't require mods in the first place, as there should be radiator mounts with the case for the bottom that would allow 2x 240s.

    Yeah it has diminished a bit, but when I get around to cleaning and swapping the tubing again I'll have it a lot cleaner so it will have a longer lasting effect, temps are still fine so I'm not worried. Both GPU's idle at 31 degrees celcius ^^

    You should totally get a tj07 or a huge lian li case and mod the hell out of it, or get someone with experience to mod it for you(mnpctech?) that would look so sick. Would look unique. If i had the money I would do that. The cosmos is meh, tj07 or lian li modded are sexy as fuck.

    Irony: The TJ07 are so popular in modding circles that the whole "unique" idea is moot.

    Also, they may be good for modding, but the TJ07 apparently wasn't very impressive with the reviewers, who discovered its mobo tray to be a little... loose? Even when screwed in place, it would wiggle easily. Additionally, they're horrid for cable management according to Deltrus.

    I think that is actually according to this forum at large or at least some people. I recall reading that at least one of those TJ cases, I think the 07, doesn't have very good cable management options/space.

    I just want to say that I just got a sexy ass new computer and WoW is completely rejuvenated for me. My old computer was a 5 year old laptop that had to run wow on the lowest possible graphics and still only got about 10 fps....that was the most frustrating part of WoW for me. Now that I can play on high graphics, sadly not ultra but still soooooooo much better than what i was used to. It's like a whole new game. My eyes can finally relax and my rogue doesn't suffer from lag when i'm trying to get behind a target. =)

    The case is old, it doesn't have as many features as cases these days. That's why you paint the inside, cut holes for cables management, etc. It is popuplar in the modding community but that's why you mod it, to make it unique. Everyone will be getting the cosmos, and it will be hard to mod and make it look different compared to the TJ07 which has room for alot of mods. I love how the TJ07 looks but I don't like the Cosmos lol :P whatever it's not my build. You could also get a case labs for the same price and have alot more rads

    Everyone will be getting the Cosmos II? I think this is a great exaggeration. The case costs about 50% more than the 800D, which is a case already most people are unwilling to pay for.

    The Cosmos II plain falls into a specific niche market. Too expensive for most people. And the crazies jump into the TJ07 or, worse yet, TJ11.
