I like my Cosmos S for cooling but it has it's flaws too.

Its a great case but not as good as the newer generation silverstone cases. Have you thought about the Xigmatek Elysium, it does not have a basement but its enormeus size makes it wc friendly

it's not that the 800d doesnt have a ton of room for water cooling. The OP is concerned about air flow to his video cards.

I mainly want to get a case which has a side window... so the Cosmos S probably is not the one for me... >.<
Thanks for the info on the TJ07.. I was leaning to that very strongly before.. lol..
Yeah I know that the TJ11 Is really nice, and it's very efficient in terms of cooling, but I don't actually like the idea of inverted tray, as It'll require a lot of cables to run from the top of the case, and the window will be on the right hand side.
My Pc is located on the right hand side, and it's really hard for me to put it on the left hand side ,as My computer room is very limited in terms of space, and I wont be able to manage the cables (I tend to take it out to a LAN party every now and then)

clshades is correct, I am mainly concerned about the airflow to my graphic cards atm, as I am still using 2 GTX 470s.
However, when the next generation NVIDIA cards are out, I'll be upgrading both of them to water cooled ready cards.. So it's just a matter of surviving the next 6 months or so...

I guess with all that criteria.. 800D is still good to go?... been reading and watching a lot of vids, most heat problems are solved through changing all the stock fans, and pulling air from the top of the case.

It would be very very easy to make a side window for the cosmos S. The cut out is already there you simply need to get someone to make you the side panel. Any glass place would do this for you out of their scrap peices laying around. I get really good air flow with this thing considering it's a full size case.

There are just things I don't like about the case.
Hard drive and cdrom clips are cheap and not well made.
The rear bezzel is quite poor for cable management.

the side panel pops out with little effort.

What is your budget anyway?

Surprisingly this case was a pleasure to work on. It's so damn light dude... perfect for lanning.

My budget is currently around $500 for the case.. (can go more)

Yeah,I really wanna get a good case to display my Motherboard well... lol..

Owh the 600T.. can it actually fit the rampage IV extreme? it says it fits ATX and mATX only... and I am planning to install 3 graphic cards + 1 PCIe sound card in the future... It looks a bit small.. hmm..

I dunno why I really like the look of the obsidian 800D =( , but functionality wise I like the TJ11 (without the inverted tray and window). I know I sounded dumb to not like the main feature.. but yeah.. =(
