  1. i dont why i just not crazy bout the front of it ... me as a modder myself . i can think of a few different ways to optimize a case to accomidate a broader spetrum and still keep the same look . I Absolutly Hate Front door cases but after seeing the Cosmos , I had absolutly had to have it .... Because in my Eyes Coolermaster Answered my prayers with that case . which was More room INSIDE .....


  2. cant wait to see how it looks with tri sli ... keep us posted ...

    i decided the silver was getting old . so i painted it . but not just any plain old paint . i used a mirage paint i am still working on the mod itself . but heres what it looking like so far ...

  3. it can go both ways either expensive or time consuming . first you need to open up the side panal with a 120 fan with it blowing partly across the video card and giving the cpu area fresh air , secondly the fan on the back of the case ( by cpu ) will be needed to be opened up to either a 92 mm fan or have 2 80mm fans there . the front case fan will need to be a 120 mm . then finally ( optional but i highly recomend its use ) at least 1 120 fan be mounted up top , between the 5 1/2 bays and psu . it wouldnt be a quick one day mod and make it look good at the same time . unfortunetly the older cm cases just dont cut it for todays comp parts or coolers . if you using a amd xp cpu then it be ok . but to use a quad core 6600 b3 stepping ( this is the hot cpu BTW ) it just wont cut it ... theres only a few cases i would even consider most of which are cm cases . the cosmos , Cm 690 , stacker 810 and 830 . the wave master wouldnt be a total loss but be more like a weekend mod .


  4. i am purchasing a swifty 320 . and this mod has changed a bit . i didnt like how it was working out so i went with this design

    i will be doin the same design on the front portion as well as the back . ther side vents will be angled instead of the square look .


  5. theres no such a critter as an mb not bieng compatable to a PSU . it just doesnt happen how do i know this , 1 the psu doesnt require IRQ's from the mb . now have you tried the psu in a different board ? did you check all connections make sure all are tight and porperly install right ? did you run just the min ? ie. mb vid , ram , cpu and nothing else ? if no go did you remove the mb from case and try it that way ? if fallowing these troubleshooting procedures and thge psu still doesnt function properly i would contact Cm for a rma and explain to them what you did to verify the psu is bad .


  6. as all mods go we need a place to start . i am starting up at the top . ( since its removable and doesnt require me to disassemble the entire case . ) i plan on running a rad up top where the 2 120 fans are located on the Cosmos case , but i wont be running the standard fans that came with the case . i wanted a lil bit more exit air flow for those top fans . its a work in progress so please bare with me ...

    heres the top portion of the case that is easily removable .

    now what i ended up doin was remove the center portion out , cut it out with a razor knife . i placed it back on the case to give ya an idea on where the front fan is located at .

    these next few is the actual mod . i used a peice of plexiglass in place of the cut out i made in the top peice . with the 2 vents . currently all used is hot glue to hold into place to give me an idea on how it will look and to see if any other modifications are needed

  7. the gt has an exposed core vs the gts/gtx has a ihs . the problem with the gts/gtx is the fact because of the ihs you need more surface area to cover the core itself . for overheating reason for that is because is how nvidia set the fan on it . you can manually set it to a higher percentage ( at a cost of noise ) to cool it better . but in actuality it runs cooler then the gts gtx because of the die shrink and its exposed core ...
