I've ordered this motherboard from newegg - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Problem is, all of the pedestal style server cases that will take this board (as advised by the IT guy at work) are butt ugly.
My choices: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

Call it curb appeal, but I would like a stylish case to showcase this badboy. I'm not looking for lights and game cases, but something a bit more showy than the crap they have on New Egg.

Are there any other cases, equally long, that have a bit more appeal?

The EVGA SR-X motherboard is an HPTX, which the Cosmos II does not officially support.

All the cases which I know of which officially support HPTX motherboards:
Lian Li PC-90
Lian Li PC-P80 Armoursuit
Lian Li PC-P80N Armoursuit
Lian Li PC-V2120
Lian Li PC-Z70 Diamond
Rosewill Blackhawk Ultra (Xigmatek Elysium clone)
Xigmatek Elysium
Aerocool Strike-X ST (another Elysium clone)
Cubitek HPTX Tank (discontinued)
