Selling my Cosmos II for the CM Striker

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
A dude is offering me 300 bones for my cosmos II and I might just do it i dont really need all the space and this case is huge . im looking to get the CM striker (white one) and maybe so accesories with the extra 150 what do you guys think. Need some input

Thats a decent price for a used Cosmos II. If you don't need that space then sell it and maybe look at replacing with a Corsair 350D or a Fractal Design Arc Midi II.

Im not a huge fan of the stryker myself as I think it has too much plastic but I can see its appeal for some. If you are into white what about a Corsair 600T or a Fractal Design Define R4 as another two options.

I have the trooper and I love it. It has room for 6 HDDs and a handful of SSDs if you need hard drive space, and also is an attractive case. I've always thought the Cosmos II is way too much for really not a ton more options. If you ever plan to water cool, you may want to look somewhere else, but the trooper can do a GPU and CPU easy and maybe dual if you get creative.

Trooper owner here that has built a Stryker as well. These are great cases, get it! If you want to check out other Stryker builds and get ideas go here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1104349/the-official-cooler-master-storm-trooper-storm-stryker-club

Yes. There is space for a 120 on back, 240 up top, a 240 on bottom, and if you don't need any hd cages they can be removed and a 240 or 360 can be fitted in the front with only mounting brackets, no cutting or modding needed. Plenty of space. SSD's can be velcro'd to the back of the mobo plate and if you need space for 3.5 drives you can keep one hdd cage and a 240 still fits in the front. So you could easily have 3 240mm rads without modding

What about an NZXT 630. It comes in white, great features, watercooling support and arguably better looks than the Storm Trooper / Stryker.

Perhaps the Bitfenix Shinobi XL. Features better water cooling support with space for 2x360 and 1x240.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811345018
