Default WC finished, CM Cosmos. (Pictures)

Hey. took two days and a lot of coffee but im done for the most part. It's up and running, leak tested 18 hrs which is good enough for me. Still got some UV cathodes and a sheet of acrylic for the window coming but thats neither here nor there. Anyhow here she is:

(Warning the images are HUGE)

Me, woken up by the mailman and oogling my stuff XD.


Display of all the junk:


This case has WAY too much crap to strip off:


Took two broken tabs and a lot of fighting to get both these moldings off.

Theres so many tabs remaining it doesnt even matter. Way overkill. lol

Insert Fan Grill Here:

XD

Rad mounted to the top. No simple task lining up the makeshift holes XD


Insert other goodies here:


Workshop:


Hosing in place:


lol Leak.. I dare you:

XD lol max 10 images per post. continued:

Starting to shape up.. ^^:


head on:


Allll in place:

Yes thats a different mobo lol. Stupid thing came halfway through, had to tear out the old one and put that in. MAN what a pain haha

I got the TC fan shroud as well but theres No room at all in there. in fact the fans themselves barely fit as it was. what a nightmare screwign them in was haha.

Nother shot, finished-ish.


power on. no idea how to turn flash off on this camera >.> oh well.


In all her glory. No idea how this one got small, was tryign to figure out flash. hahaha



Coretemp says 31-35C idle, bios said 27 last time i looked. Theres still some air in the lines I gotta bleed out. MRI tomorrow and im pretty much out of time so it'll have to wait. Even 35 is a nice drop from 50. I just put on some fresh mx-2 as well, so lets see if it goes down any more after it sets. After a set I'll post temps and crap when I start overclocking next weekend. This X38 DQ6 is sweet as opposed to the p5k deluxe. No problems at all.

At one point during this fiasco I thought I was leaking everywhere. Was like OH crap!!!!!!...

.. then realised i'd only sliced a finger on somethign or other and was bleeding everywhere haha. Was a relief, in an odd way.

Fan controller doesn't work. Fans just stay 100% all the time. it's loud as all ****. No clue whats wrong. a bit irritating.

As for wire managment, this case sucks XD i managed to cut a hole for the main mobo power cable, unfortunately the 8pin cant be routed anywhere else. I tried to cut a hole for it up top but the latch mechanism for the back door goes right over where the top of the mobo sits. So unless I can get an extention cable for it its stuck sitting right there, XD. I should look into that.

As for the other cables I did what I could. I'm using all available power slots the psu has, minus 1. In order to hide those green sleeved fan cables at the top more than they are, i'd have to remove the cpu waterblock. yes its that tight up there. lol

Anyhow it was fun for a while, but trying to cram it into two days was probably a bad idea. lol

wooooooooo!

you know you are a geek when you worry more about the integrity of your water cooling setup then your own bodily fluids

oh and the reason why your fan controller isnt working is because you only have the yellow wire connected to it from the fans, you need all three (red/black/yellow)

if you look at the pic thats titled All in place you can see the black fans mounted on the bottom of the rad. inside the case.
