Huge Case.. Totally worth the price

Summary: Bought this case for my new Intel x79 build. The case itself provides enough space for all my parts and even the two radiators (one 240 and one 360). The construction itself is very sturdy and it does not feel weak of flimsy at all. My only issues with this case are that I would have liked to have the option of a factory installed side window and also the led controller only works certain cooler master fans.
Summary: I have 12 SATA drives and this has enough room for all of them, Did I mention that this is a BIG box. It does have something that I was not aware of, Good and Bad the front 2 -key lock 3.5 openings are really HOT SWAP Hard Drive holders. So you can install and remove a Hard drive with out opening the box and while it running, as easily as putting in a CD into you PC.
Summary: Very nice looking case with lots of room and great cable management. Lots of room for fans, has good airflow. The built-in fan controller is a nice addition. Only using for the last 2 weeks or so but I don't think dust will be much of a problem. I do have the case off the floor tho. Some plastic pieces seem to be very weak. Example: Drives I've had in the hotswap bays did not want to come out easily. Adding extra pressure on the release made it flex...
Pros: Huge. Lots of room to work with., Great AirFlow, Dust filters, Fan controller, Visually appealing, Cable management
Cons: Very heavy. But who cares?, Some of the plastic parts seem a little weak., Price, Should have better water cooling support., No option from CM for a window.
Summary: Over all satisfied with the case. few things that could have been done better with the lay out but over all a fantastic case.
Pros: Very nice case. Super big and super sexy looking.
Cons: No side panel window option as of yet. And for such a big case there should be more room above the motherboard for larger rads and push pull configurations up top. Also Unit isnt packaged very well. First one i recieved had a dent on the side and the door wouldnt close properly like it got twisted or something. But NCIX took care of it.
Summary: So far I've really enjoyed building my new rig in this beast. I knew it was going to be massive, but when you have it in person, and try to place it under your desk, you really see how huge this thing is. A few little things that confuse me why Cooler Master would choose to do so, but otherwise a great case to work with.
Summary: When i recieved my case, i was very happy with the look and style of the case. I immidiatly started to take all the parts out of my old case to put into this new one. first i started with my MOBO, it fit, but it seemed quite cramped. it covered most of the wire conceling holes. Next was the power supply. It has to be pushed into the case from the back of it cause some "expansion bracket" type piece needs to be put on it.
Summary: Overall this is a great case which has some flaws but they are overcome by the fact that the Cosmos 2 is a champ in the 3 main areas where it counts the most: Cooling, Noise levels, and Spaciousness. I came from a Silverstone FT02 which had great cooling itself but even so my temps are lower and I have greater control over cooling different areas of my case.
Pros: -Tons of room inside for cable management. Even with multiple GPU's and many hard drives hiding all the cables is simple. With hardly any tidying up I was able to close the side doors without issue., -Great airflow due to numerous fan locations. My lowest GPU temps are with this case. It is great that the HDD and PSU are in a separate cooling zone so these areas aren't going to affect the rest of the case., -Low noise levels. The stock fans are all very quiet and the ...
Cons: -Extremely heavy. No one will steal this case that's for sure. Once fully loaded with hardware it will be very difficult to lift., -Build quality on the plastic is poor. I've already broken the top cover latch because it is so flimsy. When you see this part you won't believe how cheap it is. This case can easily be damaged in shipping or by grabbing any part of the case except the rails when moving it around due to the cheap fragile plastic shell. The two sliding cove...
Summary: Although this is an improvement, it doesn't address some design flaws that other manufacturers have before this case was released. Being able to remove or open the side panel without the worry of side fan cables. They could've also implemented LED and fan speed control into the same cable to reduce cable excess and allow compatibility of 3rd party fans. Contrary to the previous review, the Cosmos 2 and the Level 10 are identical in size and weight.
Pros: -Has plenty of room for cable management
-More than enough HDD slots.
-Solid design and construction.
-Supports custom water cooling rads up to 360mm on top and 240 on bottom HDD rack.
-Solid carry handles.
-Complete air cooling for all HDD bays.
-Two hotswap bays.
-Large CPU cutout for easy access to motherboard back.
-Supports all motherboard sizes.
Cons: -Proprietary LED fan control.
-GPU fan controller option but no side fans for the GPU.
-Requires PSU cable extensions for most PSU's.
-Front sliding panel may not clear drive bay device knobs.
-Excess cables such as those for proprietary LED control.
-Two hotswap bays.
