Yeah, I've just never been able to stand the look of any Phanteks cases.

I've considered the Cosmos II as well, but unfortunately they stupidly only put one 200mm fan for the front. What an insult. Couldn't even give us a 180mm to at least put an AP182 there or something. There are literally no decent 200mm consumer fans in existence.

My overclock is thanks to the generous assistance of Blameless, who kindly helped a stranger in need.
