    Agreed. But I must confess, when I started build PCs I would always steer towards the flashy LEDs and windows. Guess my taste changed as I got older.

    see the cut out for the cpu heatsink backplate? see how much space around it you get? I really don't understand why some cases come with just right cut outs and then you're screwed if the cpu socket is slightly off from where it should be. Some people designing cases should be sacked just for this. I mean how hard is it to make the cut out an inch larger each side to make sure you get easy access?

    Also, some cases have ridiculously little space between the mobo tray and the side panel. why not make it an inch more again? It's not like I'm inventing anything here, just saying, some case designs make me wonder...

    well, the main reason the Cosmos 2 has it so large is because of the array of mobo's it supports, including dual-CPU motherboards and server motherboards. One "Just right" hole would not be sufficient in that situation. As for the extra space behind the mobo tray... another reason why i like the Cosmos 2. So much space it would make the engine compartment of a sports car cry.

    The 550D is a very nice looking case. I've been waiting to see if they're going to update the Graphite "series" at all. I think a new high-end Graphite to compete with the likes of the Cosmos II would make for an interesting case

    Upgraded my case and psu this weekend! Love the P280, great upgrade from my Antec 300. Also, the ax750 power supply is just outstanding compared to my previous one which was pretty damn loud :)

    This case was great to work in, airflow is much much better than the 300 and much much quieter, cable management is also top notch. My only down sides to the p280 so far are; the lack of sound dampening on the side panels as the material is different to the case door sound material (which is really good).

    My next upgrades will be new fans to replace the stock antec ones which are half decent as they move a good amount of air but could maybe be a bit quieter, a fan controller, some Acousticpack for the side panels and case ceiling....and more RAM :D then that should do me for the time being. Hope you like the P280!

    dunno if i'd say that's the greatest place for the radiator.... but nice rig... nice monitor setup and desk.... and also like the little discrete HP home server.

    Thanks, very pleased with it all now.
    Done a build log here if your bored and want to browse it.

    Ref the rad... she cools to 3degrees over ambient and after 3hrs of BF3 at 5760x1200 with all settings on ultra, my 3 7970's never exceed 38C and the rig is totally silent, so i guess its just fine there. :)
