Case for Water Cooling
I need help deciding a case, I know it goes down to personal preference, but would appreciate the suggestions and the "do" and "don't do"..

I want a case that accomodate a triple rad with little to no modification.

Cosmos S vs HAF 932. Cosmos S can accomodate it, the HAF I'd just to have to take off the plastic piece on the top, and then I can accomodate 3 fans, and hence mount a radiator up there.

Trying to decide if the Cosmos is worth the extra $100 on top of the HAF 932, which is also a very nice case, and lots of airflow, also good cable management.

Have you seen an internal 320 rad install on a HAF yet? I was sitting on the fence WRT the HAF, and almost bought one, but decided to wait until I had a chance to see what kind of luck other folks had doing an internal install.

All I can say is that the Cosmos S is probably the easiest stealth 320 install out there these days. Not only that, the cable management is top notch.

I've seen some photos of a 320 in the HAFF- so they do fit at least .

Well as I said sswilson, little modding. Death_Hawk I believe was able to install one, on ncix there is a thread started by him, he was able to install it.

So it has been done, and I do believe you on the cable management, but you can't deny that the cable management on the HAF is also pretty good.

That is why I needed help deciding between the two, because both of them are well built.

I have a Black Pearl for sale :D

I know, but I'd have to mod it to fit a triple thread, unless your willing to cut holes for me on the top, because I got no time these days and weather's getting bad everyday!!..

Not sure about the other case, but the Cosmos S is very nice, and pretty good quality

Out of the two i would go with the Cosmos S on the basis of easy install of a 320 rad. Plus one for the Cosmos S. If you want to have a more in depth look of the Cosmos S have a look at either SSwilson's log or mine of the Cosmos S :)
