Once again, another thoroughly excellent review by HotHardware. This case looks like a real beauty, not to mention the extensive cooling options. That side panel fan is a monster. I have been looking at various cases on newegg recently and this seems to offer the best combination of style, cooling, space and features of any I have seen.
By the way, I didn't know you had another Skulltrail lying around. When you gave away the last, I was thinking if it were me, I would have been a little more reluctant to let that baby go. I guess having another made it a little less painful to say goodbye. I would imagine giving away the Beast fits in somewhere right along with marrying off a daughter.
***** Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted. *****
This is my new favorite case. If it is still around when I build a system next year this is the one i want. Unless of course I win the HH giveaway heh.

I am a little behind....I just read the article; I am just curious -- did the USB LEDs serve a good purpose? I mean was it a 'cool effect' or somehing that was actually useful....Also you mentioned that the drives didn't seem to be well fastened with the snap-plugs -- what if a rubber vibration absorber (don't know of a better term to use) was used...or is there just a lot of give/open space with the drive(s) in?
It is a really sexy-sleek looking case though.....for over $200 I will probably wait off on it however. I will admit that after reading the article I though "Wow I am going to go get one of these!!" and then I saw the price tag

Is a good looking case!! No doubt.
My favorite case of any I have seen is the Zalman Z Machine GT1000. I especially like the hard drive mounting system and the thickness of the aluminum used. The only downsides are the price and the lack of fans. Here is a wonderful review for anyone who missed it.
I think I like the CM Stacker 830 Evo better than the Cosmos S after comparing the two. What do you guys think?
Another good looking case I think is this Thermaltake.
like the titanuim and black finish
i actually prefer the tt armor case, but this is one heck of a case reminds me alot of the armor, but this one has better airflow. the bars on the bottom are logical since they help psu airflow, but what about the bars on top? do they have a reason or is it just for looks?

i think the top bars may be for adding an exterior water cooling, and for easy movement of the case. that the only thing i can think of.
I didnt notic the front part of this case looked so nice. And touch sensitive keys? You guys sure do make a great review

Very nice case I like this one and the 830 rs the best out of all cases. Great cooling and construction they seem to have taken anything into account one full tower system.
