Cooler Master's much anticipated COSMOS II pictured

In case you weren't already aware, Cooler Master are paving way for the return of COSMOS, their widely loved, iconic enthusiast tower chassis of years past. All the attributes we loved about the COSMOS are said to be remaining, with a ton of exciting new features added into the mix.

Now we can get an even better idea of what to expect from the COSMOS II, thanks to the folks over at TPU posting up a number of images of what looks to be a very close to final form version of the chassis.

The case remains true to the original with its suspended box shape design, albeit a little more curvey this time around, and is roughly the same overall size, but adds all the good stuff expected from a high end tower of today including USB 3.0 ports, touch sensitive buttons, accommodation for 2.5-inch SSDs and a smarter cooling sub-system arrangement.

Prolimatech's Megahalems is back in black

Prolimatach have proven several times over that they know what their doing when it comes to designing a solid air cooling solution for your hot headed CPU, with the Megahalems being worthy of sitting atop their pedestal.

 

With that said, the design principals behind the Megahalems have aged a little now versus what else is on the market; but rather than let this iconic name die off, they've given Megahalems a new lease of life by re-working the base design, making a few tweaks here and there and kicking it out as a new Megahalems "Black Series" edition, which as the name suggests, means you get a sexy new breed of this high end cooler in black coated attire.

While measuring in the same as the original at 130 x 158.7 x 74 mm (LxWxH) and with the same six nickel-plated copper heat pipes passing through the base, the new model sports a grainy black coating which increases surface area (vs the polished glossy type) and wider compatibility for all current as well as pre-gen AMD/Intel platforms. You also have the option of strapping one or two 120mm or 140mm fans of your choosing on the beast that is the new Megahalems Black Series.

OCZ power up PSU line with new Fatal1ty and ZX models

Computex Taipei 2011 - OCZ have released details on two new PSU lines that will be gracing us all soon. The first is the Fatal1ty series and because real men don't use power supplies with only 3 digits, the signature power supply comes in 1000 Watt only.

Xigmatek shows off the power of its new XAF Series 140mm Fans

Computex Taipei 2011 - Yesterday on our final day on the show floor we met up with Tony from Xigmatek who gave us a quick look around their booth.

 

 

While we did see some cool upcoming cases behind closed doors that we cannot talk about right now, one thing we can talk about is the new XAF series cooling fans from Xigmatek. They feature an aeronautical bearing system which is a special design to improve air pressure and air flow. This new and impressive fan design will also be implemented into Xigmatek's full line of CPU coolers.

 

xigmatek_shows_off_the_power_of_its_new_xaf_series_140mm_fans_1

 

The fans will come in at 140mm in size, but will also be able to support 120mm fan mounting. They come with or without LEDs depending on what you want.

 

Xigmatek had a demo setup with the XAF fan running at a super quiet 1200 RPM with the old fan series running at over 2400 RPM (louder and 63.5 CFM) and at half the spinning speed the new XAF is able to push 76 CFM. Obviously the clear advantage here is high performance without the noise.

 

Lian Li have attack of confusion and switch mobo IO to front of case with PC-100

COMPUTEX Taipei 2011 - Lian Li has always been known for being creative and coming out with some weird and whacky case designs in previous years at Computex.

 

 

This year the strangeness comes in the form of what is going on inside the case. With the upcoming PC-100, the folks at Lian Li have reversed the motherboard around so that the rear IO ports are actually at the front of the case. This means you get very easy access to the IO and lessen the need to have as many cables inside your case such as USB extension cables for instance.

 

Next up there is the PC-90 which has some rather impressive engineering. It is a mid-tower case that wait for it, can support not only EATX but also HPTX motherboards. I think this is the first time we have seen a mid-tower case that can fit large GIGABYTE EATX mobos and dual socket boards such as the EVGA SR-2.

 

lian_li_have_attack_of_confusion_and_switch_mobo_io_to_front_of_case_with_pc_100_50

 

Not only that but Lian Li has been playing around with how hard drives are mounted in the case and in the PC-100 and PC-90, they are mounted vertically on the side of the case which is said to aid in airflow through the front to back of the case.
