Default Coolermaster Cosmos S ATX Case Review

It did not take Coolermaster long to update their high end chassis, the Cosmos S is based on the Cosmos, but made from aluminum, more cooling options, comes with a massive 200mm fan and has a very unique I/O panel. We compare this S(port) version to the original to see how it stacks up.

Great review, thank you for the detailed photos. Best review I've read of the case... Any idea if they offer extra drive cages separately? They should of at least included a 2nd one for the price...

As much as I am liking this case for how well it fits my needs, the price is a bit to high to swallow. Might at well look at the MountainMod designs, as they start at the same price.

Yes the HDD bay module is available separately from Coolermaster (since Stacker series already), but not all retailers carry this product afaik.

Saw some Cosmos cases at cases with custom paint job, for a nice $900

I've posted this question in other forums, nobody seems to know the answer to it, or does not want to answer. This is my 1st post here, and let me just say madshrimps has the most excellent case reviews I've read, I just like the size comparison charts which gives a very good idea how large the cases being reviewed are!

so here is my question.
Does the biometric power button work like a regular power button when held down. wherein it forces hard shutdown when within windows.

I asked because it just occured to me that it has no reset button, meaning I'd have to flip the switch in my PSU, then I realized my PSU the corsair 520HX does not have a switch. I just wondered what I had to do if my windows locks up. I'd not like to have to unplug it from the wall.

welcome to the forums!

yes, if you hold your finger on the button it's the same as with a normal power button; as long as you keep your finger on the button it will be in the "on" state and holding it for 4-5 seconds will hard shutdown your system.

Thank you for the best Cosmos S review on the web!

Can you please tell us what fan controller you used on page 5 of the review?

"...The brighter red light comes from our 5.25 fan controller we installed..."

I am a neat freak and as this is a red-light themed case I would like a nice red led fan controller.

this one: http://www.mountainmods.com/sunbeam-...2k8h6oqvnt9t85
Sunbeamtech 5.25" Fan Controller, it's RED because it's feeding the fans less than 7v, at 7v+ the LEDs turn bright BLUE. so do take that into account.
Also the leds are very bright when lit up blue and might be blinding

You can dim them a bit using a method like mentioned here: http://www.madshrimps.be/?action=get...=70&howtoID=29
