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.
To me Cosmos II is butt ugly. As for Corsair, their construction quality is not even close to Phanteks. Phanteks are much stronger and better built.

Many Phanteks owners who had Corsair before have commented on how much better Phanteks is built. Phanteks has many different styles of case, some not much different than Corsair, like Enthoo Primo, Luxe and Pro .. or new huge Elite.

But if Corsair looks nicer to you go ahead and get it. Maybe you will be happy with it.
