Well, steel has higher density and can reduce vibration and noise.

Alu has a better look, but it also vibrates more.... (than steel)

It's not alu vs steel problem, but alu/steel vs plastic.

And there is no doubt that alu is better than plastic. So why couldn't CM choose alu in places where now plastic parts are used?

The Case would look much better with full metal construction.

And one thing more (if we speak about design) - is CM going to offer Cosmos Nvidia edition (that we saw at Nvidia Computex booth)?

This rev really have a unique style and would be great be able to buy it.

I try to make suggestion for aluminium door and aluminium top side and use window. Dark part is anodized brushed aluminium.

With full transparent window:

With dark window:

For me dark window is better.

e) No possibility to use additional fan for HDD (I think cooling isn't enough for 6 HDD now). My opinion is position 2, but for this need make removable bottom side of HDD rail.

I agree your idea. I think there should be extra one more fan under there to cool off six HDD.

Hey Saki! Comon! Tell us more about the idea!

Hey Saki! Comon! Tell us more about the idea!

I see 3 possibilities:

a) 1- change all rivet to the screw

2 – make intake grill bigger

Then fan can be put from top

B) - Make a hole on vertical part of HDD bay from existing intake fan side

- Make intake grill bigger

Fan can be put from side of existing intake fan (for this need remove and put back this one).

c) Make a hole on bottom side of PC case. Fan can be put from bottom side. Can be use nice fan grill

I don’t know dimensions of existing place, but can be used standard 25mm high fan or 15mm high Zalman ZM-OP1 fan, or what ever.

Of course need to make rubber fixing possibility for fan.

Regarding making Cosmos from Steel and Aluminum, rather than steel and plastic, I can think of two problems...

One, as shown by the 83* Stackers, aluminum is expensive!

Two, isn't the combination of two dissimilar metals and electricity dangerous... ??

Not 'blow up in your face' dangerous, I know...

I agree, plastic sucks. but it's light, inexpensive, easy to form, fingerprint resistant - in many ways, a perfect material.

Be Well!
