I'm quite pleased with mine. Great build quality, tons of room, stealth 320 rad install, excellent cable management, and quite light for it's size.

If you haven't already seen it, this is the link to a mini-build log I did when I first got the case.... Coolermaster Cosmos S

Computergeek im currently writing a review of the Cosmos S in the Members Review section, have a look buddy i hope you have a large amount of space. And i would second not getting that particular Zalman cooler until i jumped to watercooling i have bought 4 different Zalman coolers the 7700,9500,9700,Vf-900 the 7700 are not good at cooling i loved the 9500 for its quietness the 9700 is good but still not good as say the Noctua's and VF-900 will alwayyys have a place in my heart keep in mind that it was a Gpu cooler but kickass for the cheap cost!

Why are you still sticking to a Zalman HSF... there is so much better out there.

I don't like Zalman coolers. They are overpriced.
If you want a top cooler go for Noctua NH-U12P or Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme with Noctua P12 fan.

Yate Loon D12SL-12's are quieter, move more air than the P12 and cost a ton less. Grabbing two for push/pull on a TRUE or a HDT heatsink would be your best bet for air cooling.

OK, agree that YL's are cheaper and silent at 12V than P12, but no way YL's (D12SL-12) move more air than P12 at full-speed.

It really depends on which Yate it is. There's varying quality out there. CanadaRox is going by Petra's Yate Loon which is what Vapor uses on XS for his fan reviews.

I don't think the NCIX Yates perform nearly the same though.

1. Is the Asus P5Q-Pro better than a Asus P5K?
2. Is getting the 4870 or should i just go with a 4950 and get CF later?

I'm a big fan of going with the best single card solution you can afford at the time rather than hoping that X-fire or SLI is going to work well with whatever game you throw at it........
