    I also received a Gigabyte Z77, waiting on their GTX670s, once those arrive I'll post photos. The Lian Li PC-A75X will be used for the VisionTek build, The CM Cosmos II will be used for the Gigabyte build

    Thanks Kenny. I'm currently talking things over with Bill on the paint & artwork, we might go with a dark blue metal flake this time around.

    Awesome!!! Can't wait to see what you guys do with the build..
    I've been thinking about the Cosmos II case lately as a replacement case for my TH10... but the only thing I don't like is that it doesn't have a side window..

    Do you have any word also from Corsair of the plans for the Corsair 900D?? That is the one case I am really interested in right now and have been waiting for more news on it..

    Hi Kenny, CM does have a side panel with a window in the works for the Cosmos II, so does MNPCTech, but unlike CM, theirs will be made from Acrylic.

    As far as the Corsair 900D, I really can't talk about it, but I will be getting one for review once samples are ready, seeing as I did the original 800D and 650D reviews
    I also did the original AX1200 review, so it's going to be great reviewing the AX1200i

    Hopefully the ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z and the FX3850 will be here by the end of the week, then I'll have almost everything I need for the VisionTek build.

    Nice bling Stan. Really looking forward to the AMD build. I think you are going to like the way the 8350 and 7970 perform. I've only had my 8350 for a day now but I'm really liking it. My system is much more responsive and smooth since I swapped CPUs.

    Do you have any word also from Corsair of the plans for the Corsair 900D?? That is the one case I am really interested in right now and have been waiting for more news on it..
    Kenny, I built a system for a friend in the Cosmos II yesterday and all I can say is wow, what a great case. It can hold a 360 rad up top in push/pull and a 240 rad in the bottom with the lower hard drive cages removed. Construction quality is excellent. It has a built in fan controller for up to 9 fans (perhaps more with y cables), and the ability to turn on and off fan LEDs if the fans support that feature (bitfenx spectre pros do). Here's the specs on the system I built:

    15-3750K
    Asus Sabertooth Z77 Rev. 2
    16GB Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz
    Samsung 840 250GB SSD for OS/Apps
    Crucial M4 256GB SSD for Games
    2 x WD Green 2TB HDDs for media and storage
    EVGA GTX 670 FTW 4GB
    Corsair AX850
    Pioneer Bluray Burner
    Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme AIO Cooler
    Ceton InfiniTV 4 Quad-tuner TV Tuner Card
    Cooler Master Cosmos II

    System is hooked up to a 65" Plasma TV. It's a badass system. I really like the Sabertooth motherboard. Going back next week to overclock the CPU and GPU, and put some other finishing touches on the system.
