Overall and FV

I doubt that Cooler Master could have packed any more features into the Cosmos II, no matter how hard they tried. It seems they covered every angle as far as flexibility, wire management, and performance. The real determining factor on the Cosmos II is going to be your preference in case style and the price. When one of our members posted up a link to the Cosmos II originally it was a very polarizing case with some people falling in love with it and others unhappy with the style. It really comes down to those who like simple basic designs using all aluminum and people who don’t mind the use of plastic. Once you get past that the next problem is going to be the price, with a MSRP of 349.99 this is far from a cheap PC. Then again this is the largest case we have ever reviewed.  When you compare the Cosmos II to the 800D, for 50 dollars more you are getting better cooling and support for larger motherboards and more video cards, if you’re looking for XL-ATX support it’s not even a question.  Now the last thing you need to figure out is where you are going to put the Cosmos II, because of its size you may have to rethink your desk layout. Of course you’re going to want to have it out where everyone can see this monster, I know I would.

Corsair vs Cooler Master

It's built to support quad 580's, something the 800D can't do at all. I really hope we see a XL-ATX case from Corsair in the future also.

I am just wondering if it could handle a serious setup. This is a serious case after all. Say, triple 580's? Just wondering if it would fare better than a 800D would. I would hope so.

Love that they put wire management feed cutouts on the tray that separates the Mobo from the PSU.

Yea, a bit too pricey, but overall a great looking case. I'm really liking some of the features of it though.
