    Hi there.
    I'm considering a new case, my current case is the CM Cosmos S...Nothing at all wrong with this case, in fact it looks amazing and I get a ton of compliments on it with the antec veris and Sentry it looks pretty slick...However I've had it almost 2 years and I'm getting bored so I've been trying to decide on a new case.

    The ones I'm looking at are the Thermaltake Chaser MK1
    http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Product.aspx?C=1467&ID=2048

    Or the Corsair Graphite 600T Special Edition White.
    http://www.corsair.com/pc-cases/gra...hite-graphite-series-600t-mid-tower-case.html

    I like them both for different reasons, I love the drive dock on the chaser, but honestly I probably wouldn't use it much. I also like the style of it, it would really match up nice with other components...The Corsair is just beautiful!

    I guess I'm wondering from those that have these cases how you like them.
    My biggest complaint about the Cosmos is the cable management sucks, I found there just wasn't enough room behind the mobo tray for them...It was very annoying and interferes with that side of the case to have them there.

    I read on the newegg reviews that the chaser's fan holes don't match up with other generic fans, even thermaltakes own fans don't fit it, is this true? Doesn't make much sense if thats the case and will sell me on the Graphite.

    I should also say I am strongly considering a Corsair H100 in the future...In fact it could come before the case or maybe both at the same time, not sure yet
    Thoughts suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks

    Voted for the Corsair, although you can't go wrong with other alternatives like from NZXT for example.

    I recommend the Cosmos S






    (Cable management can be improved by the cable management operator :)
