Good looking case but i have to say i am not a fan of the color combination, i think many will probably not buy it cause it wont fit the build

That's a good looking case... When I built my pc about 4 years ago the Cosmos II was my first choice, but ended up settling for another CM-case because of the price vs. budget. My next build will hopefully include a Phanteks case, but I might have to consider this one as well...

Fundamentally, it's still a drastically outdated case being touted at an absurd price.

Agreed, would not buy. Phanteks is a clearly better choice, especially for rad support.

It's a Cosmos 2 with silver on it and glass doors. That's it. Internal layout is still absolute poo for water cooling as it's the same years old design.

They are nice (I've had one) but yeah, I would hate to set up a loop in it.

I'm shocked that CM would release such a minor re-hash of a dead case. I had a Cosmos too, YEARS ago. Why the heck they wouldn't actually modernize this big ugly thing is beyond me. This just doesn't compete.

The Phanteks Enthoo Luxe I bought recently was under $200CDN, came with FOUR 140mm static pressure fans, a PWM hub that can drive 3-pin fans as well as 4-pin RPM ones, RGB light bars, and tempered glass. Not to mention looks tons better, is nice to work in, and how has a 420 rad in the top and a 360 in the front. This CM effort is way beyond lame.

The Cosmos 2 is beautifully made. Everything fits perfectly. I'd never have another one though. For that much air space in my flat I would want twice the internal rooom.

This is just laziness. Probably had a load of the internal parts left over lol.
