The Cosmos S is fantastic and the cable management is great, although it has some flaws which isn't a big deal for those who aren't nitpicky.

Not sure if you'll ever find a case that is 100% perfect. I'm not a big fan of the Cosmos S, I have a Cosmos 1000 and like the refined lines. I'm sure the S is better in terms of cooling but like I said nothing is perfect. That said with the S probably being better than the 1000 in terms of cooling a triple rad is pretty easy as IIRC it will just bolt right in. I have a dual loop in my 1000 using two chevette HC's which are 6"x6"x2" plus shrouds and plenums and still have room to mount at least a triple and a single rad so there's definitely room to grow. The 932 is, well, a matter of personal preference. It has lots of big gaping holes and big fans so if it fits what you have in mind then it could be the best option for you but not very sleek IMO.

took me ages to settle on my PC-A70.

I really didn't want to spend that much money but I'm glad I did.

Yeah I'm still leaning towards the HAF 932, a nice case for a nice price.
Curt how much did you spend on yours, including any shipping/extra costs.

Getting tired of traditional looking cases so going for a Mountain Mods this time to try out & see how I like it.

You could sell your current case to fund it, I know there would be interest here.

I am planning to sell them, but still my budget is only for $250.. I can't spend more, budget is limited, and to get a proper MM case you'd need a bit of money..

I could but I have a spare system just dying for a better case so I'll be keeping it & ripping apart the old one for the MB tray ect to do an upcoming project sometime in the future.

Thx for the suggestion though.
