    COOLER MASTER COSMOS II RC-1200-KKN1 Black Steel A...


    It is just a frigging crazy awesome case, but man it would be pretty hard pressed to spend that much on a metal and plastic enclosure. :eek:

    A very awesome case indeed, only downside in my opinion is that it cannot accommodate an HPTX type mobo like EVGA's SR-2

    Yea hmm, that is odd. I just noticed that it states the following motherboard configurations:

    "Micro ATX / ATX / Extended ATX / XL-ATX / SSI CEB / SSI EEB"

    Well well i spend 500 Euro on a Lian-Li PC-V2120X and from my view ts not even 300 Euro worth, no mesh / filters for upper fans ... no SATA Backplanes nothing ......
    and the Build in Fancontroller i dont even want to mention some on that
    if i could make rechoice i would take the COSMOS II

    compared to the prices Euro Dollar this is odd

    349,99 $ newEgg

    349,90 € caseking

    Oh I agree n0tiert, Lian-Li is waaaaaaaaay over priced for what they are. I have owned one of their cases and I picked it up used. I was not impressed.

    Don't get me wrong, if I had the extra funds I would be all over the Cosmos II. It is one sweet looking and large case.

    The cosmos can accomodate an SR-2 guys, search CosmosII liquid edition on google, a guy has built a dual Xeon system with a 4 way SLI, so it fits.
    The big drawbacks of this case is that you can only accomodate a slim 360 on top ( must be less than 50mm FANs included) and a single 240 on the bottom, unless you mod it.
    This broke the deal for me, such a big case and virtually no space for good radiator config is a shame

    Don't get me wrong but if I'd shell out more than 350 euros for a case I wouldn't want to purchase something that requires extra effort to get what should already be installable out of the factory, anyway I purchased one and I'm going to see in first person when it arrives, if it doesn't suit my tastes/needs I'll probably send it back and buy a Little Devil.

    Not entirely true. there can be 50mm of rad and the fans go in the hideaway pocket at the top of the case;) (above the steel, but under the plastic removable top)
    radrok says thanks.

    Sorry, I forgot to mention push+pull, thanks :)
    Anyway I'll be able to tell by the end of this month, gonna try with an RX 360 and with a HWLabs Black Ice 360. They won't probably fit :(

    Oh yeah with Push/pull, it will get tight, but there is more room above the board in this case than many others I see that are labeled as capable of a triple rad there;)
