Coming along well, like the idea for mounting the radiator at the side of the chassis. Also good job making the rad cowling / guard.

Thanks!

UPGRADE!!

The next step was a separator box for the PSU. Because of the front radiator, a could not build a straight box, it had to be thinner in the front. Here I used my favorite 1 mm aluminum plate, designed the side of the cover to be easily removable If I want to swap the PSU.

Here I got to the point, when I had all the main inside and outside elements together, but the whole case needed to be tuned together. First I sanded the custom metal parts and painted with titanium base color. After three days sanded it once more, and gave it a matte finish layer. Unfortunately, the finish layer started to solve the basic layer.

UPGRADE!

When I finished the work, it looked cool, so I decided to continue on the outside. I covered the glossy top control panel, preserved the Cosmos logo here, then I use a brighter carbon-fiber film on the sides.

UPGRADE!

The next element was an SSD holder. I cut three Plexiglas pieces, polished their edges, and used LED-s to light them, so I got a cool edge-lit effect.

UPDATE!

At this point I started to install the water cooling. My first task was to upgrade the Aquaero 5 controllers cooling. I cut an old, copper Socket 478 to suitable form, and painted it black, to blend in.

Great job so far, original cosmos case provides challenge for space behind the Mb

Yes, the cable management is quite challenging, I cut extra holes on the motherboard tray.
