Had my old Cosmos S sitting around and thought i would have a play with it.

Only going to use the frame and have a go at a semi scratch build.

New panels inside and out using Acrylic and Alu panels.

Started pulling it apart to see what i can do with it.

 

As you can see the frame is in a bit of a mess.

Drive bays gone and there is plenty of room to play with.

Not the greatest idea but something i can have a play with.

This will take a while as funds are a bit tight at the mo.

Window on the front so i could show of the res.

Just an idea at the mo

Will be using most of my old stuff thats in my case now just need to save up for a new block and a 360 Rad,maybe the XSPC 360 crossflow and an Aquacomputer Delrin block, as the tubing would run better with that Rad.

Chrome fittings and Chrome tube will go back in as the theme im going for would be black white and shinny bits

Hopefully things will pick up and i can order some new bits.

 

Thanks for looking  :thumb:

While i was having a rumage in my boxes i found some nice AC stuff
Block has a AMD bracket on it but found some spare ones so hopefully one of them will fit my board.
They should look ok with some chrome fittings and tube and maybe one of those good looking AC silver and black 360 Rads :)

If i go with a window on the front i have an XSPC pump stand i could have a play with to put the AC Res on. 

Thanks for looking

I too have a Cosmos S sitting at home empty. I got a quad radiator in the top. Keep dreaming of rebuilding a new PC and finishing it. 

 

Always wanted to invert atx it. :)

Yeah i basically cut the frame to fit a quad grille.....then cut out the I/O slider thing on the external casing which i waas gonna stick some mesh in the place of.

 

I like the right hand option :)

Managed to scrap together some pennies for two more panels.

First panel was for the back,as this was a fun build i found some more old bits i had from an old mod.

Also added a Bitspower mesh bit and a Lian Li PSU holder,just looks a bit more tidy.

Handles fitted to the top.

Next panel is the front,yep more spikes and an Aquaero front plate.

Still needs a bit more filling on both panels.

Still not sure which Res to go for yet.

 

Next bits when i get more pennies will be the back peice and some Angle.

Where i am at the mo.

Decided to change the front panel,wanted another AC grill same as the top but a 240 one.

I did find one but it was in Poland,with post it was over £30 so i thought nah not paying that.  [-X

I got a Bitspower one instead.

Did a bit to the inside,found my old Skull Grill so i thought i would whack it on plus it hides the fugly stuff.
