    I really can not decide which one would be better of the two. I then begin to look at the be quiet dark pro v2. What is everyone thoughts on any of these cases?

    They look cool and as someone who owned the Cosmos 2 (or whatever it was called), I'm inclined to like them.

    But like 97% of cases these days, they look like they're suffocating due to a solid panel with tiny air holes on the front.

    Also, the newer version, while cool, seems like they really went crazy with the configurability and options - up side down, angled GPUs, etc.

    Yet, somehow, they didn't manage to think of making a mesh front panel as an option...

    I have the C700P. I can tell you that you don't have to have the plastic cover on the front - it is metal mesh underneath and looks fine without the cover installed.

    That being said, Steve at Gamer's Nexus did some thermals testing on this case with the front panel both on and off and there was little difference between the 2 configurations - despite appearances to the contrary, there is enough air getting through there.
