Incomparable in design and specifications, the Cosmos II comes in as one of the first Ultra Tower chassis. Inspired by luxurious supercars, the exterior of the Cosmos II melds aluminum, steel, and mesh into an elegant artistic piece. It maintains its trademark Cosmos profile and outlook with its reinforced aluminum rails while being further refined for today’s advancements in air/water cooling, peripheral support, and styling. Large swinging aluminum side panels and sliding doors lend to its stylish and smooth movements to access ports, drives, and system hardware. With the Cosmos II, build as you wish as the options are endless.

HUGE with some interesting foibles06-12-2012
Reviewer: xtt (8)
I love this case. It is huge and roomy inside. It has a lot of different options for internal configurations. For most liquid installations, this is a very reliable, well built, easy to modify and flexible. Pros : • Very flexible internal configurations • Can hold multiple radiators (top and bottom) • many possible fan configurations as well • very roomy, fits even HPTX SR-X and EEB Z9PE-D8 motherboards • lots of internal pass thru''s for very flexible cable management • very roomy behind mobo tray for enhanced cable management / hiding Oddities and foibles : • okay, the led/fan controller hair ball is just odd. It''s just too much of a mess to be useful • the radiator holes on the top do not easily fit 120/360 radiators. Get out your dremel to open them up to fit black ice and xspc radiators. • the 4.5 bays on the front are odd. The lockable X bay drive 3.5 carriers yield only 1.5 5.25" bays when removed. • feels like a lot of waste after you remove all the unnecessary internal bits for a typical, aesthetic liquid build. • adding a 360 radiator to the top interior requires some case metal bending to fit. It also makes the top 5.25" bay short • even thin/stealth radiators do not fit in the top bay. You have to install the radiator inside and pull air thru with fans on the outside top of the case (under cover). Works fine, just less efficient. Cons : • HEAVY and bulky • stock fans require replacing. They''re okay but there are lots of quieter more powerful fans • Expensive. • no casters and the feet have a tendency to come off as you move it around building • standoff patterns don''t fit some popular motherboards. It is less bulky than Case Labs or Danger Den large cases. Costs a little less, is very flexible and is heavy but a fit person can move it around single handedly with the handles even after build completion and fill. All around my current favorite case for liquid builds even with the oddities.
