I'm pretty sure I've made that mistake before, it's strange because you never used to have to. I'll have to download them and post them directly into here.

I tried talking the wife into letting me have one for my Haswell build. I failed.
We have to be able to log in to that site to see the photos.

That beast needs wheels and a tow bar. Pity Cooler Master doesn't have a smaller, lighter version. Making it all aluminum would also shave some weight off.

Thank you all very much. I have seen many reviews on this case but the opinions here mean more. The price is I think is what would one would expect for that case.
Good point on the P/S filter. Should of come from the side. Moving that case around when completed would be hell just to clean a filter.
The 45 deg door removal is another great point.
Hell they are all good points.
I picked up on another review that one would not be able to install a thick radiator at the top because of the motherboard position. You would think that they could of lowered the motherboard mounting a inch or so with all the size of the case.
Once again thank you all for your opinions.
Back to my search.

Good decision. Good case if you have 2 meters clearance for 360 degrees.

Layback, if you are considering the Cosmos, you are obviously considering water cooling. Don't get me wrong, the Cosmos is an excellent case. I considered it myself. Having said that, there are cases out with better options for water cooling. One being the fairly new release of the Corsair 900D. It is an extremely large case and very heavy too. But amazing builds can be done in them. I sincerely doubt there is a product on the market that you would have to ask whether it will fit the case. Reading some consumer reviews, there are some complaints about the quality of the case. Nothing that can't be easily fixed, but there are some. Another case that has caught my attention has been released in the past couple of days. It looks to be amazing and very configurable. It is the Phanteks Enthoo Series Primo. Watch the video (there are several one after the other.) and read some reviews on it. It seems that they have built a case made for water coolers. It even has a bracket to hold the reservoir and a place to put the pump already laid out. The PSU goes in the rear of the case which should make cable management very easy. The only drawback I can notice is the max length of video cards is 10.1" But, that is with the Reservoir bracket installed. Without the bracket you can go to a 12+" video card. Personally, I don't see the problem with that. It just means that if you have a long GPU, you are exactly where you would be with any other case. Put it where you can find space, but it also shows the forethought that went into the case. I would like to see some user reviews first, but with what I've seen, I don't see how you can think about serious water cooling and not consider this case.

EDIT: Not to speak of the fact that it is $100 cheaper.

Thanks, Jack. I am currently moving my rig into a switch 810 (annother water cooling case) and have everything just about ready to go, including another radiator. I saw this case and put a hold on my plans. I'm seriously considering buying it. If you're not familar with Phantecs, they make CPU coolers and have one that rivals the Noctua NH-D14, in my opinion the best air cooler on the market. Their coolers are top quality. If that quality carries over to this, their first case, it would be a great case. It must be too. Several reviewers have said it is a strong contender for case of the year.

I going to order one from my local dealer tomorrow. I don't use PayPal or credit cards. It does cost me a little more but that case is worth it.

Looking for opinions on this PC.
My desktop PC is getting on in years - it's a 3GHz P4 I bought back in '05 or so.
