its mesh, its got a few new featres. i just like it, it even has a travel coverign bag that comes with it, i liek red, and the leg's are nice, i am tired of door which the cosmos took away, the 30cm fan on the side looks to be usefull especialy considering i have sli. and from what i saw it was 15$ more on newegg.ca

Newegg.ca - COOLER MASTER COSMOS 1000 RC-1000-KSN1-GP Black/ Silver Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases
Newegg.ca - COOLER MASTER COSMOS S RC-1100-KKN1-GP Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases for me the 15$ would be well worth it.

it also allows a direct air flow for the top fans where as the regular has a cover on it, with an exaust hole. and when it coems ot a case that big aluminum is a very nice additive.

its way lighter then steel, steel is heavy, also i forgot to mention to take the fan out and put a peice of acrylic there instead is much easier then to cut a hole in the side panel and add it in.

No..

Aluminium is generally lighter cases, some claim is more flimsy but I don't find truth in it.. generally cool to the touch

Steel is heavy, super durable stuff, I could sit on it and not break it (but I'm a light 102 pound kid so I could do that on my Centurion 534 whenever I wanted to haha)..

I've also heard that the steel can be hot to the touch sometimes unless its a steel alloy

So alluminum is colder, while being lighter? What about I just buy the side panel?

Aluminum itself is just as strong w/o the weight, theres a reason why commercial jets are made of aluminum.
