Makes it look kinda small, also cramped...not sure on the Internals. I also hear whispers of 300$ USD Min.

Too bad the psu is in such position. Could be "next Tj07" water cooling case, and extra feature of being able to take two power supplies. Now there is just nice gap above psu for.. air.

I've always liked the look of the Cosmos cases but not their prices or features. They never have enough room for what I need inside. This one is no different to me.

It would be nice if you could swap that large front fan for two 120mm fans.

If it doesn't have a side fan option for the main compartment though it looks like it'd be starved for intake air.

I'll pass not enough air flow for me, if I am going to mod a cosmos it will be a cosmos not the new one.

After dealing with the 200mm fans on a Phantom last year and a 600t this year, I can safely say I want no part of this.
It's a shame, because I really, really, really LOVE CM's design. All the Cosmos cases are just gorgeous.

Judging from the pictures and if you look closely at the original image from maximumpc when the 5.25" drive bay area is closed up the entire front panel from the entire lower compartment all the way up past the middle of the case is inlet for air. There is also a 200mm fan there that is level with the GPU along the negative pressure zone. So you could simply remove the cage out of that area or probably even turn it to face the other direction like in the HAF. You could then mount 2-3 more 200mm fans in that area sandwiched together, or just leave the cage and fan where it was and mount another 120/140/200mm fan on the other side of the cage. For the exhaust you have a 140mm and I believe it's a 3x120mm outlet up top. Both the inlet and the outlet appear to be a fine mesh. There are also a finely meshed inlet underneath the PSU so the PSU can outlet fresh air, and again I speculate there is another finely meshed inlet for fresh air to be exhausted out through the bottom section of dual drive cages.

There are only 3 5.25" bays up top but you could remove the hotswap bays underneath for more compartments. So you could still fit a dual 5.25" reservoir, fan controller, and dvd drive + something else. Or hell, who knows if it would fit yet but if you want even more inlet air how about the Silverstone 3x5.25" bay to 3.5" bay convertor with 120mm fan.

I'm also speculating that if the bottom cages were removed you possibly even fit 2 2x120mm radiators. So there may be the possibility to fit 3x120mm, 1x140mm, and 2 2x120mm radiators without any cutting. There are already some pretty nice holes cut through the mid-plate panel.

The case is even bigger inside than either cosmos was and speculated it may even fit a dual socket EVGA SR-2 motherboard.

And it'll also be 300$ USD +

So yeah, going to be more expensive than the 932, HAF-X, OR Storm Trooper.
