    Ok, looking to replace my mid size tower with a full ATX due to heat issues. Things started to get a little cramped with twin 8800GTS.

    These are the two that I have narrowed it down too. I am huge CoolerMaster fan, so I am not really interested in the Antec 900.

    Wanted to see if any of you guys are running machines with either of these cases and what your thoughts are on em. Both have their plus and minuses. I really like that the Cosmos S has the PSU on the bottom and the ability to run the PSU wires through the mobo tray.

    However I really like that the Stacker has a removable mobo tray and seems like cooling wise, it would be the way to go.

    What do you guys think? Thanks in advance

    Well if I had to choose I would go for the Stacker but it's not my system and not my choosing. Your the one that has to live with it and like it for a long long time. Both are nice choices - I just like the air flow on the Stacker. Luck to you...Jazz

    Stacker has better reviews and by the looks of it has better cooling.
    I personally wouldnt spend that much on a case.. The one I have was £30 tops (~$60) and has done me fine. Full ATX tower with front 120mm fan, rear and side 80mm but it all depends what your needs are.

    Perhaps spending $250 on water cooling would be a better investment.

    Thanks guys, Yeah I am leaning towards the Stacker.

    The money really is not an issue, its the heat generated in the case that I need to pan out. I currently have a mid tower case that rocks (entire front and side are mesh and running 4 case fans) but with 4 harddrives, large fatality sound card, two 8800's, and over clocked CPU I am really not achieving the temperatures that I would like.

    I am thinking a full sized tower will give me some breathing room and some options for water cooling the system in the future (room for a block and a radiator so I dont have to go external)

    I most likely will go with the Stacker, I will post some feedback once it gets here. thanks again for those who responded.
