  1. I think the TF400 is better than AS5. I have tried both and will stick with TF400 as it dropped my temps by about 7 degrees. When i apply TF40 i put just a little smaller than a pee size dot and just attach my block/heatsink and then im good to go.
  2. You have to put in a parts request or contact customer support and let them know you have a Cosmos S and the Aquagate Max and that you need the adapter so it will fit in the case. Thats what i did and they sent me the adapter and got it to fit when i was using it.
  3. I also noticed that. I also noticed a film that would start to cover the res plastic on the inside. I think it might be coming from the coolant that is being used. I have since put a new water cooling loop new together and went with Feser coolant and i do not notice on more of that film like cover on stuff.
  4. If you look closely at the wheel section do you see any bubbles near the top of the wheel? If so you will need to tip the case on the side (right) to get the air out of there and it should spin better. Give that a try and let us know how it worked.
  5. From looking around the net and reading how the case is set up it seems like you might be able to fit it on the bottom where the two hard drive cages are but i am not sure. Is there room up top to mount it? If not the bottom might be your best bet. As far as temps go that would all matter how much paste you have on the cpu, your overclock (if yo do) and the airflow. I was running my Q9650 at 4.4 and my idle temps were less than 32,32,36,36. I have all four cores stuck at those temps until i go over them. Load they were about 65 or so not any higher and that is with 1.49 volts.
  6. Thanks it didnt take very long once i got everything figured out and exactly what needed to be cut and drill and riveted back together.
  7. Here is the case and the Hard drive cages after the paint and it has dried. I cut out the top so i will get better airflow with the fans and i also cut out a hole in the back to get to the backplate on the CPU block without having to take out the motherboard. I also cut out holes in the front to put the 2 80mm fans to blow on the hard drives. Then i installed the fans. I mounted three fans on the radiator and then installed it into the case and then put on the other 3 fans so that part is now done. This is slowly coming together but will not be done tonight as i am still waiting on my quick disconnect fittings and my drain valve to get here tomorrow.
  8. Well i have officially started and just about done with this project. It was a bit difficult to get it to fit but i got it in there. You can find some pics of my progress at thi slink. viewtopic.php?f=9&t=12224
  9. Here is what my computer looks like at the moment. (It gives a new meaning to the word "desktop") This is my first major mod that i have ever done so it may not look the best but it is something that i have always wanted and liked. I took the things i liked about the Cosmos S and Cosmos 1000 and combined them into one case so i could have the case i always wanted since seeing both cases. My plan was to take the hard drive assembly out of the 1000 and plant it into the Cosmos S and that turned out to be even more difficult than i originally thought. If your wondering why i didn't just buy the 1000 and put a triple rad up top it was because i like the outside look of the S and wanted that look on the outside but wanted the HD look on the inside. My plan is to paint the inside of the case a glossy black and use blue coolant to give it a nice bright look. I dunno how that will look but hopefully it comes out like i plan. Some parts i am using. Now for the cases. I should have taken some pictures of the 1000 all torn apart but i spaced it and took some of the S somewhat torn apart to the point i was able to do some work to it. Before the tearing apart. After the drive bays were taken out. I did some cutting of the Drive bays on the S in order to fit the 1000 hard drive bays in and get them to sit right. This is the final product with the HD bays installed. Once all that was done it is time for paint and i wanted to go with a glossy paint. I didn't do any primer or sanding just painted and it seemed to turn out ok but i will not know for sure until the paint has dried. The one thing i did forget was to cut a hole in the front so i can put a fan to blow on the hard drives. I guess i will have to do that after the paint dries and put another coat on the front. Now time to wait for the paint to dry. What does everyone think so far? I can take criticism so don't be afraid of telling me what you think even if there something you dont like. Thanks for looking

    V10 Beeping?

    In order to do the fix you would have to take it all out anyways. I am not sure if taking it apart to fix the thermal sensor would void the warranty on it or not so i would be careful and make sure before you do anything. On the other hand the fix is fairly easy and only takes about 15 minutes or so max.
  11. How many hard rives are you running? If not more than 4 you could get some hard drive coolers and screw them to the bottom of the drives with screws and motherboard standoffs. You could something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6811999152 You would have to give up two of your hard drive bays for this to work. I did it when i had the 1000 before i got the Cosmos S and it worked pretty good.
  12. I think if they took the hard drives cages from the 1000 and arranged them in the Cosmos S going up and down like the HAF would be nice. Keep the actual cages and have the look of the HAF and then on the side of the hard drives cages have holes drilled so the front fan could actually blow air into the cages and cool the drives. Like i said before i love the look of the Cosmos 1000 on the inside with the cages but i love the look of the Cosmos S on the outside. If you combine what people like about both cases and put it all into one well thought out case i think you would have a very nice case and quite a few people would but it just because of the look and how much room they have on the inside.
  13. Is there a time frame of when the new and exciting things might happen? I am looking to get the HAF but if CM is gonna release the HAF that is all black i might just wait for that to come out to get one.

    V10 in Cosmos S?

    Yes, this V10 will fit into the Cosmos S but the fan must be removed or you can use the optional windowed side panel. That is correct. I can vouch for that one. It would not fit with the fan on the side.
  15. Did you plug the 24 pin power cable from your PSU into the 24 pin extension that came with the case? Once you do that make sure you have the black and purple wires clipped together (One from the case power button and the other from the 24 pin extension). The red sata cable is your esata cable. Are your hard drives sata? Also your memory goes into slots 1 and 3.
