I'll give an uncommon recommendation, that you may not like....but the new Thermaltake Xaser case sounds right for you...the 10 slot-case will ahve tons of room for fresh air to come in, dual rad can fit in the bottom, and a rad up top....

Don't forget the HAF 932 or ATC 840. Along with those Mountain Mod cubes and towers which IMO are the best bet if you want tons of fan/radiator options.

And well various Lian-Li cases if you want to go all out...

I was gonna suggest HAF932 and ATCS840 but someone beat me to it. Also, look on lian-li's site, they got plenty of cases with all sorts of cooling options. Mountain Mod cases are the way to go for water cooling and fan placement options. You may want to definitely check out the Cosmos 1000, Cosmos S (which the difference I still don't know) as you said, and of course the thermaltake armor is definitely a player in this game.

Ewww Thermaltake. Although it is well suited for what you are looking to do and its the only case with 10 "PCI Slots" as cadaveca mentioned.

I hate to agree but +1 for the Thermaltake case, sure it styling might not be everyones cup of tea, but it has possibilities.

That, and give it 5 more months and everyone will own a HAF 932 LOL!
