while the case being gigantic is not a problem for me but...yeah gigantic and still with limitation is turn off...

The trick is the side panel is not just a single piece of aluminum. It's 6mm-10mm thick, the door is curved, and made in three layers. There's the outside which is brushed aluminum sheet, the inside is reinforced plastic structure and the inner panel with filter. The first two mockups had a side panel with a steel inner layer for extra strength, but we deemed too heavy. The side panel is not just cutting a hole and putting some plexiglass. You also have to maintain the rigidity, if your side panel has too much structure removed, it won't be able to close correctly, it would skew.

I can't say when the side panel will be released, or if it will be released. What I can say is if it will happen, it will have the same high quality that matches the Cosmos II.

Thats what I was hoping for, I can tell just by looking at it you can't just hack at it and stick a plexi window in there. I'm sure it could be done with enough skills, but I don't have those. I will wait patiently and see if one made by you guys comes out, but I will probably pick this case up for my next build in a few months when I move to socket 2011.

Looks ok, but for that price point - I would expect the entire chassis to be Aluminum.

At this price point the Cosmos II competes with the TJ-07.

Not impressed. At all. 4 years since the Cosmos came out and this is the best they can do? At the $400 price point, a Case Labs case demolishes this case.

I like how CM is updating this. I'm still looking forward to the new 690 II Advanced. Only thing is, $160 for the 690 II revision and $400 for this is a bit stiff. It's a great update, but I wouldn't take it over a TJ07. It kinda makes the TJ11 look like a worthwhile option by comparison. Nice case though. Nice case though. Now all I need is an update to my old CM Mystique.

Amazing design, I was quite excited until I saw the the price. This case could have demolished the competition if it was priced around $200~$300 (FT02, 800D, various Lian Lis, etc).
