it can fit a 360 at the top with no modding and a 240

240 in the psu compartment? That's the one thing I loathe about my 800D. I had to mod the psu compartment to fit a 240 rad and even then it can only fit laying down...not on its side...which makes retubing a PITA.

For 350, here are some things that are unacceptable:

Lots of plastic
Lots of Steel
Lots of Mesh
Little Aluminum
More Plastic
Poor watercooling potential
Weight

I don't see what all the oo's and ah's are about. For 350 there are a myriad of chassis that are far better. Case might be worth 229 USD.

I agree. I've had Coolermaster products in the past, and after having had a few Silverstones, and Antecs, I can say that Coolermaster products have generally a more cheaper feel then anything else I've ever owned.

I would pay 189.00 for this case.

I'll copy and paste my thoughts here from the 2 other threads about this pile of rubbish...

This doesn't even come close to what Case Labs cases offer not only in design, but flexibility at that price point. If this case was half the price with twice the features, it would be a great case. As-is, no thanks. :thumbsdown:

I think I may finally start hunting for an original Cosmos to mod.

For that kind of money: Case Labs.
For much cheaper, and still a better WC setup: Elysium.

case looks pretty good, however for it being as accomodating as it is, it would be nice to either come with a side window or have an option for one now. No window to show off the internals of this makes me a sad panda.

I carry mine to the garage to blow dust out every other month smile.gif Have a dusty house, need to get my air ducts cleaned out.

This is by far the best case I have seen since the debut of the 800D, If I didnt already have an ATCS 840 I would definitely buy this case. Its clean, has a painted interior, has a built in fan controller, ample space, separate compartments for the PSU and motherboard area similar to some Lian Li cases. Overall I just find this case stunning, and I definitely would like one.
