Or a little kid can sit on it, and make a nice dent in the case, it looks kinda like a chair. xD

How about the Cosmos 1000? Maybe mod it, or something?

His case that would look like a chair? xP

Can't say too much about that, but why would you want a case the is "differnt," because not too many people would care about the case, and I'm sure a radiator would fit a descent sized case.

To me a case is one of the most important pieces to a build. Sure you can have the best hardware but have it in a nice case and its a totally different build. I've seen way too many times, builds w/ nice hardware and they skimp on the case. Its the wow factor. Just think an i7 build,clean install w/ great wire management but contained in a cheap case. Won't look right. Things I look for in a case is space,aluminum and timeless design.

Is there even any vents in the 343? The Cosmos is perfect for an i7 build, bunch of fans, and a nice design. Plus it isn't your everdayday cheap computer case. ;p

just looks alittle to gamey for me. Not exactly the type of build I'm going after. The 343 needs to be purchased w/ perforated drive covers so my rad can pull in cool air. If you read some of its reviews you'll see how expandable the case is.

Expandable, not pretty! ._."

Why not the Cosmos 1000? Or you can mod the Cosmos S, or repaint it. It's like the best case ever. xp The 343 looks pretty rediculous, and I think most people would agree with me, because the wheels are freaking funny, and it's shaped like a file holder. The only pro is that it's moddable.
