I've had a Lian-Li case before. Their build quality is excellent, but unfortunately I chose a model that wasn't really right for my needs and my temps were kinda high as a result. :(

Dude, same exact situation. I bought a Lian Li PC-65 midtower with a side window. It originally hosted my 3.0 northwood rig, but when the MSI mobo I had died, I didn't want to get another socket 478 board considering it was dead. So I decided to nab a pci-e board, a 3.2 prescott, and a x700 pro (which is what I'm on now). It was a HEATY bugger in that case. My pc kept freezing in 3d environments cause the chipset was getting so hot, and the two small 90mm exhaust fans were just not up to the amount of head. So dropped the case (it's sitting in my closet) for a thermaltake shark (worst purchase ever), I've got 2 intakes 120mm fans and one 120 mm exhaust (one of the intakes is ghetto rigged with twist ties and wires =P).

But yea, the antec 900 has restored my faith in mid towers ^.^...

Many thanks.

Came across this forum by doing a search for the Cosmos S case and read about a price tag of $500.00 and had to weigh in with the price I found the case for.  Will give this forum a good look over.  Been on the Dell forum for 6 years and now built my own system finally.  About time, I do say so. 

Thank you again for the welcome

 Koolance, Thermaltake, Gigabyte etc.. use very very poor and unreliable components for their water cooling systems, not to mention overpriced.

 

I will take my Thermaltake Armor overthat any day.

 

I have seen the cable managment and features on the original Cosmos, and lets just say I won't be switching any time soon.
