Introduction & Specs


Coolermaster latest high end ATX case was first demoed at Cebit back in March. The product name was most likely chosen for its color scheme and overall design. The Cosmos is one of the largest tower cases we have tested to date, with plenty of room to fit the latest high end hardware inside.

While other companies tend to use light weight materials for the high end chassis, Coolermaster is sticking to sturdy steel for their latest creation, the Cosmos is made from steel but you can’t looking at the case from the outside you can’t really tell:

Weighing in at close to 17kg, empty, this is not a case you’ll haul around to LAN parties throughout the country, however you can be sure that what you install inside will be kept safe and cool. The Cosmos comes with 4x 120mm installed at different locations in the case.

You can install up to 7x 3.5” devices if you use the extra 5.25”>3.5” bay, otherwise the number is still an impressive 6 internal HDD bays. There are 5x 5.25” bays to fit a variety of CD/DVD and other 5.25” devices.

The case is large enough to fit ATX, a format used for most enthusiast motherboards on the market, but also Extended ATX boards, which makes this case a candidate for a high end workstation, where dual socket motherboards take up more room.

Let us take a closer look at the Cosmos ->
