No... if guys want to see pics go to the Coolermaster site. As I don't have a digicam.

Oh Ausjossman, the total cost was $272 plus delivery to WA. price will vary depending on where you live.

Above is a review with a system built in the case.


I'm getting tempted...

Just brought one as well for my new build. Should arrive next week.
Hopefully it will be better than my Antec 900 wind tunnel and dust magnet. I think I may have to have a go at making some sort of dust filter for it though. (any one have some spare panty hose?)

Okay just built this baby yesterday, and I have to say, that I was astounding at the level of innovations that the tower implemented.

Also if your person who wants the ultimate watercooling setup with quad SLI/CeossFire, with multiple HDD, and drive bays.... this is the tower for you. And if Lian Li is the Mercedes Benz of towers, this one is like the muscle cars of that genre.

There was one thing that vexed me greatly... some of the pre-drilled holes were too small, and not having a drill, I couldn't solve that, so the top right hand side of the motherboard doesn't have a support under it. So it lost some points there. But it was redeemed with the HDD holders, and the 5.25" drive lockers.... ahh what a treat, just slide it in, push a button, and hey presto... DVDROM secured (still slightly adjustable, so I put a screw in the other side).

It comes pre-installed with three 230mm fans, one on the top, one on the side, and the another red LED one in the front. With a 140mm rear exhaust fan. Plenty of room for a system to breath.... and cable management a dream.

So if you find this case being one of your choices.... get it.

Does it have enough clearance on the side 230mm fan for a tall tower like the TRUE? Because the Cosmos S doesn't..

This tower is so deep... you could fit the TRUE... with heaps of clerance. Although that 230mm fan is pretty thick, so I think they will become good friends.

If it ends up being that you don't like the closeness, you could always mount 4 120mm fans on the side in stead of the 230mm one. Currently my brother is still using his Zalman CNPS9700LED and it's 14.2cm tall and about 2cm's away from the fan. And the TRUE is 16cm tall, so I think it may just be almost touching. But the Phenom is a slightly larger CPU, so you may get a coupe of mm's off for your an Intel CPU. All in all, it's gonna be close.

Just like the Cosmos, the 230mm is just too big... :(

Well, I don't like the ideas of mounting 4x 120mm because it's more noisy..

Put them on a fans speed controller... or get a different heat sink. 1 or 2 degrees cooler wont make a difference, get a Noctua NH-U12P

No not really.

It's just different. Personally I think that a person shouldn't buy this tower for it's looks, rather, it's interior awesomeness.

Except for when the pre-drilled motherboard mounting support holes don't fit the mounting supports. :(

Lol I completely disagree (personally). My tower sits next to me at home, and if it was and ugly fuck like this new coolermaster I think I would cry. It seems like this case might appeal to some, but it lacks any sense of elegance or true power.
Interesting to hear comments on the insides though, and it would be more interesting to stack it up against an antec 1200 (seems to be in a similar category). The cosmos S is one up on this, being considerably more expensive. I did, however, build my second cosmos S the other day and was reminded of just how hard it is to cable up nicely (it's a bitch).

Any more opinions would be great.
