    Well the clock ticked and its January 3rd which means only one thing..........the release of Cosmos II

    I know everyone just wants to see pictures of the Cosmos II but if i could just add a few words - I was lucky enough to get one of the first here in the UK from Coolermaster to have a play with and although i could go through a whole list of features i’ve decided to leave that to the review guys who will do a far better job than i could and no doubt there will be a whole rake of them flooding the interweb before long so thought i’d just show a few pictures of the build.

    Oh, one thing i will say though, this thing is huge, here is mine parked next to a previous Cosmos S mod[/URL] for comparison though given its size i think a few will be a tad disappointed that according to the manual, it can only accommodate two 240 radiators (one in the base and one in the roof) which simply isn’t enough in my opinion for a case this size which is why mine now has two 240’s in the base and a 480 in the roof.

    I had hoped the first of the dual LGA2011 CPU boards might have coincided with the Cosmos II release but they are still a little way off yet so decided to use the SR-2 system from a previous mod for the time being as i tried an X79 ATX board in there and it honestly looked like a little micro board and wouldn’t of done the case justice to be honest.
    Anyway, here’s my little addition to the Cosmos II release.

    System Spec:
    Cosmos II (Liquid Edition)
    EVGA SR-2 Motherboard
    Intel X5650 CPU’s
    EVGA Hydro Copper GTX 480 GPU’s
    Memory – can’t mention that yet
    Kingston 64GB V+ SSD’s Raid 0
    Coolermaster 1200w Real Power Pro PSU
    XSPC Raystorm CPU Blocks
    XSPC EX 480 and 2x EX 240 Radiators
    Phobya Nano-G Fans
    MIPs Motherboard Block
    Koolance RP-450x2
    Laing D5 Pumps x2
    Bitspower Black Fittings

    Not wanting to bore anyone to death but just to mention a couple of things - to get a 480 radiator in the roof i had to do a little surgery to the chassis and also added vents to the sliding top thingy which hides the buttons and houses the fan controller PCB to let the air in to the radiator.

    The fan controller PCB connects to the buttons via a 6 centimetre ribbon cable so i had a hunt around and found some 22 centimetre ones in a US store so i could mount the PCB out of view on the back side of the 5.25 drive cage.

    I also added a matching curved plexi window to the sliding thing at the front which was meant to show the bay res shining through the red liquid but i think i used too dark window film LMAO, so i need to find some lighter or take it off all together but i like the way the black matches the case for the time being.

    Its also worth mentioning that due to the motherboard locating so close to the ceiling of the chassis, you can also only use a slim radiator like the XSPC EX series as anything thicker will hit the motherboard and those hoping to run push/pull, forget it.

    your "here it is parked next to..." link is broke

    properly, properly drool-worthy box, i haven't even seen one in the flesh yet and already i'm thinking that this is the one that is finally gonna replace my V2000 :)

    doesn't it have almost 40cm available width space for gfx as well ?
    impressive future proofing, but exactly how much fricking wider are CM expecting cards to get !!???! :p

    incredible looking case, i'm seriously thinking about abandoning my upgrade plans and just buying one of these...

    it is gigantic isn't it
    it's also (apparently) going to be hugely expensive; as much as £350 when it makes it to the UK :wtf:
    that's a bit pricey..
