Corsair H110i GTX and Cosmos 2 Ultra

Hi, couple of months ago I bought my new PC and had it assembled by a tech guy. Now, he installed the H110i GTX in the reverse way as he said that there is no space to install those fans on the radiator (Pic1). He then installed the fans on the top of the radiator and not in the down way (the usual way) (Fans on Top.Pic taken from above). I want the fans to be installed on the down so that the light of the fans would go downwards.

Also that when he said that he is unable to connect the USB cable to the H110i due to the motherboard and he installed that knob in the reverse way again and connected the cable (Pic2). But now, to me it looks bad that the knob is installed in an upside down way. I want it to be in the proper way with the USB cable connected.

I have a Cosmos 2 Ultra Tower , one of the best cases for gaming rigs and still I had to face such issues and the motherboard I am using is Asus Maximus VIII Extreme.

So, any way to solve this without changing the case ? :(

  1. You can re-mount the H110i so the tubes come from the left side and while remounting you can replace the fans too

    I already replaced the stock fans and I gave him the red light fans to install. What should I do now ? I mean he says there is no space for installing those fans. Which fan should I get ?
    Probably a noobish question, if I change the cabby to Corsair 900D, will these current fans work?

    Or Should I just get an another cooler ? Maybe NZXT Kraken x61 or anything you guys wanna recommend that would be good for i7 6700K ?
  3. I do not ( and i repeat ) do not recommend you getting a 900d just for fitting an AIO correctly
    can you take pictures of the mainboard and the rad so i can see how its oriented and how much space there is ?

    Here are the pics that u wanted bro :
    Pic 3
    Pic 4
  5. I think if you want to have to tubes on the left side, it would interfere with the mainboard armor
    Do you know how flexible the tubing is ?
    So you could maybe just reinstall the cpu block but so you can read the logo ?
    I personally wouldnt do it though since it runs and cooling isnt affected by the cpu block orientation

    Exactly, it is interfering with the mainboard armor. Bro, I can just selling this AIO cooler and get an another one that is compatible with the case and mobo.
    Can you recommend any ? Will the Kraken x61 do the job or what should I go for ?

    The tech guy tried multiple times but at last he had to install the radiator that way so I guess a different AIO is the only option.

    Are the looks really that important to you that you want to sell your AIO and get another one just so you can read the logo ?

    Yes and I also want the fans to be at the downside of the radiator because that will look good. I want this because this is my first gaming rig and I want it to be perfect . That's all bro!

    Then i guess you dont have another choice to sell it and buy another one
    But you can unmount the radiator, unscrew the fans, install the radiator in the top and then install the fans under the rad

    He tried that but the cosmos2 is weirdly designed. :|
    Also, should I get the Kraken x61 or any other u wanna recommend ?
  11. Do you want a 120 mm oder a 240 mm ?

    The tubes are also clear and the water is colored red
