    The case is old, it doesn't have as many features as cases these days. That's why you paint the inside, cut holes for cables management, etc. It is popuplar in the modding community but that's why you mod it, to make it unique. Everyone will be getting the cosmos, and it will be hard to mod and make it look different compared to the TJ07 which has room for alot of mods. I love how the TJ07 looks but I don't like the Cosmos lol :P whatever it's not my build. You could also get a case labs for the same price and have alot more rads

    Everyone will be getting the Cosmos II? I think this is a great exaggeration. The case costs about 50% more than the 800D, which is a case already most people are unwilling to pay for.

    The Cosmos II plain falls into a specific niche market. Too expensive for most people. And the crazies jump into the TJ07 or, worse yet, TJ11.

    "I just can't come to the want to pay $100 for a case man! Like what's it going to do that's worth so much?"

    when i called tigerdirect to preorder the cosmos 2 i was the first one to actually place an order, they have had lots of interest, but almost no purchases, which is typical of high end cases, lots of interest, but few buyers

    personally i love the TJ12 concept, but i dont think i would ever buy it, unless i wanted to make a folding monster SR-2/X with 7 gtx-590's

    there is also issues with the TJ07 and TJ11, at over $500 for the case i might as well bypass that whole class an skip straight into a LD or Caselabs case

    personally i like the LD tower with the built in phase changer, black exterior and red interior, but i don't like it enough do drop $1500-2000 on it

    rumor is that they will be shipping them out the 20th or the 25th

    although, i find the idea of a build log funny, when i hear "buildlog" i think of something that takes days or weeks to build, i build computers in a couple hours, not really step by step log worthy

    Yeah because the processors decide which color to pick, lol. He bought a rampage 2011 so I'm guessing he would go for a black and red build. Single sleeving the cables black and red would be sweet.

    actually i bought clear tubing for the waterloops, , but everything else should be black/red/chrome

    im probably gonna drop the black/white look, there are too many issues with it, the solid white tubing makes bleeding air bubbles a pain, and the NZXT fans are not very good, i already have one with a bearing going out and they are only a few months old

    im probably gonna go with CM excaliber or R4 PWM fans, and mount them in a pull only configuration, but i may hold off on this till i can get a hold of a corsair link kit, there is no point using PWM fans on the MB if the onboard software cant link a set of fans to the GPU temp, the corsair link can

    It's not like having white tubing makes bleeding that much harder lol, you can look at your res and be fine. The bubbles go out after a couple of days anyways. The excalibur fans are great from what I have heard. If you want red LED fans check out the phobya fans, they look nice. A frozenq res would look so sick too, lol anyways I'm just throwing out some ideas.

    You can get something similar or even better than the corsair link http://www.t-balancer.com/english/index.htm

    The Phobya black and red fans are literally the pr0n of fans. Those things are gorgeous, the dark red is nice and not too tacky, and they seem to do pretty decent as well.

    i had a frozenQ res when i first built my current rig, total junk, i will never buy anything from them again, low quality seals for the center light, meant that i could not fill it all the way to the top without water leaking down the light housing

    also, the actual res ended up cracking and nearly shattering in my hand when i removed it

    they look nice for shows, but other then that they are low quality junk

    For the price they cost, I'm surprised. I'm happy I went with the XSPC dual bay res, doesn't look the best but the price is great.. as with most XSPC stuff.

    I just applied for a new job yesterday and hopefully I'll get it, but here's what I want to get if I can get a new steady income:

    New Ivy Bridge i5
    Ivy Bridge chipset mobo (since my mobo sucks)
    New true 1.5v RAM
    Maybe a GTX 6xx/7xx series GPU?

    Possibly get a decent Phobya water-cooling rig. If things go well...

    I wouldn't get too hooked on brand as to say I'd buy Phobya water-cooling, since not all products from each manufacturer is made of gold. But if you're itching to work with your computer then water-cooling could certainly be fun.
