Default Cosmos Cable management concerns...

Either the Cosmos S or the 1000.. I've also been eyeing the CM Spedo. It looks like it has some nice room for the side panel cable management.

Pics? Tips? I really like the Cosmos S and about to order it in a week or so. I've been case shpoping for almost a year! Help!!!

Lian-Li
This one is only a little more than the Cosmos. You can always add your own window or mod it up. You'll have a case to be proud of for years.

^ Yeah, I just read thru a couple of threads that turned up inn the search regarding this topic.. That Lian Li 8ase was mentioned a couple times.

It works inside, but it's missing something.. -I'm really picky about cases. I want the 800D, but the price is gonna kill me. I want to stay under $200.

They're nice cases. A friend of mine bizarrely has three.

EDIT: Cosmos's that is. Don't know which one(s) specifically

^ I WAS about to order the CM Cosmos S...

Just watched a Vid review on the PC-A70 and 71 series, and the features make up for any visual cool factors they may lack.. But I'll prolly be painting it black anyway..

Can someone recommend me a set of some cool RED fans?? I saw the TT 120's in red, but I'm not sure if I'll want LED's or not.. I don't want too too much light coming out of the case as I am a Night gamer..

Going with a black case and some red touches.. you'll see..

^ The MM are a bit bland, and would get expensive QUICK... I found an 800D USED on eBay, but he took off the bid section. :\

I'm gonna keep my eye open for a couple more 800D's around.
