Except for those two top mounted fans. Ugh! My kingdom for a fan grille option!


This one should also be available. I do not like the fans either. Way too easy to damage.

It's a work of art for sure!

However since I got the Cosmos II, I'm kind of out of the market for a case now

Yay for the backplanes for the drives, and the rad mounts are gorgeous.

Wow... that case is stunning.

I second the fan - awesome design. But not practical for someone who has toddlers around.

I wonder where the videocard power wires go. They seem to just come out of thin air.

They also don't show the front side of the case empty for some reason.

I wonder how much a case like this is going to cost. Anyone have a wild guess of a price range?

Sooo sexy.

$700 - $1000 is what I'd expect.

Question: How much does a murderbox cost?
A complete murderbox starts at $6,000USD and goes up from there, depending on the amount of custom work involved.
A well appointed murderbox with a single liquid cooling loop, GPU and a few drives typically comes in around the $7,000USD mark while something on the level of Daniel's 008 build is in the neighborhood of 2-3x that. Every murderbox is executed to perfection – it really comes down to degrees of "ultimate

That is the old MurderBox. Which was a complete rig, not just a case. I expect just the MurderBox MKII case to be around $700 - $1000.
