The case does have things that make me think, why did they do that? Some things I feel could be improved are:
Grommets at bottom of mobo tray
Ability to install thicker radiators properly
Correct 360 rad alignment in the top of case
Not require you to bend tabs out of the way to install a radiator
Better thought about what watercoolers want, i.e. reservoir mounts they know people use tube res's they should give you the screw to affix them easily
All new cases shipped with the new fan controller, my 140's on my 280 RAD are ticking, why should you have to contact support straight after you by a new case?
Less rivets everywhere, it's like they only want you to be able to uninstall certain things
Easier 360 in the bottom capabilities
Sell a side panel with a window right from when they started shipping the case
Fan controller should atleast have a jumper to enable or disable the fan controller beep, desoldered the speaker on mine
If you're installing fans for your GPU's on your side panel, it's annoying to have to continually disconnect them every time you remove the side panel
Seems like lots of plastic, I guess I just go used to the metal exterior of the 700D
Locking 3.5" bays make the interior look untidy and when you remove them, you can't blank off the hole
Higher quality looking plastic. It seems like the same stuff used on my CM 690.
I guess that sounds like I'm complaining but really, these are just my thoughts on what could be improved.
Some things I liked:
Cable tie points, excellent, work really well
Loads of PCI expansion slots
Top IO area is clean
Cover stops flashing HDD LED all night
Flexibility to install radiators on their sides in the bottom
LED button will be really handy for me as it will control all case LED's
Overall look is excellent
After owning the 700D, it's nice to have a case with curves
Overall I do think the Cosmos 2 is an excellent case.
