Was Cosmos S, now Lian Li PC-A77B or V-2010?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I can't decide between these 2 cases. Both offer the possibility to upgrade to water cooling. something I want to do in the near future. Anyone have any thoughts to switch me one 1 way or another?

I'll be running 2x sapphire 4870's, Rampage Formula, etc.

I like the layout of the Lian Li much better, especially for wc'ing. It's very similar to the (much cheaper) Rocketfish. The Cosmos has always felt oddly cramped to me.

However, if you don't like having to mod your case much, the Cosmos is probably the better choice. The design of the top allows you to mount a triple rad fairly easily. A front mount may be possible with both cases, but the Lian Li will require cutting to mount the rad anywhere else. You MAY be able to get away without cutting on the Cosmos.

ive never liked the look of the cosmos.. no side window and i think those handles are ugly. personaly i like the lian li better but i think their close enough feature wise to pick based on your personal aestetic preference. anyhow their both good cases im sure youll be happy with either

I love my Cosmos S. I agree that it does not have as much room on the inside as a Lian Li, but its so damn sexy looking. I have both this case and the rocketfish and decided to use the Cosmos for my main rig. The PC-A60C is still my favorite Lian Li case though (just too expensive for the size).

Anyone guess what my answer is going to be?

The Cosmos S is a big case but like someone already said, it lacks room somehow.
With the few mods the A77 can become an absolute dream of a case!

It's a toss up atm between the A-77 and the V-2010. Ultimately I will w/c whichever 1 I get a little down the road. I'm tending toward the V-2010, but there are many things I like about the A-77.
