Case for New Build ~ The Beast of the Beast

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
As I was looking at a Soldam .............. Oh well
I am now looking at a
COOLER MASTER cosmos S RC-1100-KKN1-GP Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower

or should I look at the
CM Stacker 832 SE

Can any one tell me if this case has Hot swap capabilities
as I will have 4 to 6 Hard Drives and would like to just pop them in

I am happy to have a large case
price not so important ........ just want the best

If not can you recomend a case that can do that

I was looking at the new TT Armor+ (Link) today and it looks like they've improved it a lot. The Cosmos is supposed to be a sweet case.

Check out the Antec 1200.. Its a full tower, very well built and lots of fans for cooling. Here is an Egg link to the case. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129043

Real "on the fly" hot swap support is rather rare (+very mixed) in consumer/desktop components but there are couple ways for easy "no cable hassle/dismantling half of the case" installing/removing off HDD after you've shutted down PC.


That Lian Li V1000Z and A7010/7110 have backplane/rails system where you just put "screws" to HDD and then push it into rails or draw it out from rails when left side is open.
(when aiming to quiet PC modding Lian Li's standard soft mounting/HDD rack so that you can access both cables and remove HDD from same side of case would be alternative for that)


Then there are modules to 5.25" bays in which HDD is put into tray which can be installed/removed from front (like CD/DVD) without opening side of case:

(for all 5.25" case my choise would be Lian Li A77)
