    From an aesthetics point of view, I can see why people go for these type of cases, but in the long run your severely limiting the upgrade potential and therefore they just seem 'dead end' systems.

    Every purchase you make is based on 'will it fit?' , I'd hate to limit myself to such a degree when the inevitable upgrade itch needs to be scratched.

    Oh, BTW, after calling you guys out last week on the quality of the photographs used for case reviews, these are FAR better, keep it up!!

    people buy these systems mainly for comps that need to be portable.... and really this case has an extremely surprising amount of space to work with when you consider its convenience in that subject..... basically if you are just going to have a tower... go with atx or extended mobos and a full tower... plenty of room, airflow, and space for whatver you may need.... but if you end up trying to take the COSMOS II to a lan party.... you will have regrets quickly

    From the pictures on the first page, it is a Fractal Design Integra 650w.

    Specs for that PSU can be found here.

    Really? I could have sworn it was that bright Dyno-Rod Orange...

    Actually, that would be an awesome colour........

    Doesn't make my eyes bleed enough. But still it's a nice looking case.

    Yeah spraying the metal fluorescent orange would be straightforward enough, but the feet/handles would be tricky to get a good finish on.
