    Anyone using a Cosmos 2 case & the OC Panel included with the RIVBE?

    Is the cable from the OC Panel long enough to even work in a 5 1/4" slot in this case?

    If anyone can give me a definite answer that'd be great! Going to cancel my order if not.

    Thanks!

    Yes it is. I have mine in the top slot. There was enough room to run the cable out the bottom holes, behind the MB tray, and up back through the top hole adjacent the 5.25" bays. Plenty of length to spare.

    Thank you so much for the help! Repped you.

    No problem. The Cosmos 2 is a beastly case. Frankly, it makes me wish the BE was a larger form factor to make the MB less cramped (the connectors on the bottom row are REALLY hard to access with a 3-slot GPU installed in the lower 16x PCIe lane, and push/pull on the top with a H100i is a no go). Plus, between the BE fan controllers and the Cosmos fan controllers, you have a ton of options for fans (and the OC Panel has fan headers too!). I do wish the Cosmos fan controller had an "off" setting besides low. Alas, the BE can do this, but ONLY when using AI Suite 3 (which I don't like). I have a Corsair Link Commander too but the software sucks just as bad (actually, worse) as AI Suite, and it has no "off" option either.
