I know its an old'ish case (Coolermaster Cosmos S) but as its sat round not doing anything I am going to put a water cooled build in it.
I understand that you can fit a 360 rad in the roof of the case, firstly what rads will fit up there and is there enough space to set it up as push/pull or is there only enough space for fans on one side with the rad fitted?

Thanks in advance

depending on how clever you are with your cd-rom etc, you can fit a push-pull. Just put the top fans in the top cavity, the rad suspended underneath and the lower fans attached to rad.

    There's ALWAYS room for a quad rad!

Off the top of my head, the space between most mobos and top of the case is 80mm

Most radiators are around 50-55mm...think thermochill(which i have in mine(all be it a quad ;) )) is 54ish...

This makes it too much of a squeeze to get push pull in. However if you go with 20mm fans it would fit.

Of course this depends on the mobo. A lot these days dont have a top row of mosfets so yr main clearance issue would be against the memory slots!

Is how I've done every cosmos s I've built (5 or 6 now, including 3 at once linky

As Aaron mentioned, can be a bit tight on clearance if you have mosfet heatsinks on the top edge of your mobo, but so long as you do have clearance (even if only 1-2mm) you're good to go.

Heh, tbh, it's not me but a lot of my friends/aquaintences that have the cosmos s fetish.

In fact, I'm not long back from helping a mate in Swindon rejigging the loop in his cosmos s to accomodate a new gfx he got for christmas.

Cheers for the help fellas, guess I can get ordering bits now I know it will fit push/pull.
Anyone willing to recommend some good fans for the job?

I've used the Cosmos S in my Galileo build - originally done in October '08 but re-done in March '09 and January '10 (clickys are links to the relevant build logs).

My radiator is a XSPC R120-T (they don't make them any more but they're great rads) - my rad spacing is slightly off, I've had to use the centre fan to mount the rad with the outer two being mounted if the holes lined up.

Fans have gone from Xilence LEDs to Xlience RedWings, but it really depends on your radiator. High fin density usually means you can use lower CFM fans and vice versa :)

Edit - just realised the photos in the first log are all dead, full gallery is here: http://www.cwatson.o...llery/computers :)

Cheers, cable management isn't one of my strong-points but hopefully it'll be a lot better in my next rig :)

It is indeed a Xonar, it's the Essence STX - I don't need any fancy surround stuff so it's an audiophile-grade 2.0 card, absolutely incredible quality, my signal path is Xonar --> Behringer Xenyx 802 mini-mixer --> Cambridge Audio A1 amp --> Kenwood floor-standing speakers. The Essence was about £160 when I bought it, not sure what it retails for now though.
