Final Thoughts

 

Cooler Master definitely took off the kid gloves with the new Cosmos design and is out to play with the big boys with this chassis. While it reminds me of everything I liked about the 800D, some of the options I like in my TJ11, and being rounded like my 600T, the Cosmos II is a case that is very distinguishable when sit it next to any of those I mentioned. This larger than life Cosmos II left me wanting nothing and delivers more than what I need or could imagine using. I am a sucker for huge cases that look sleek and elegant outside and can deliver a build inside that no one person should be ashamed to show off. Show it off and be proud with a build in the Cosmos II, as there is no other case on the market like it.

 

Cooler Master stays true to the original enough for this chassis to be easily recognized, if only for a few seconds, mistaken for the Cosmos S to the quick viewer, but then it will kick in that this is something completely different. Gone are the old wire management headaches of the original, and the airflow and compartmentalization of the interior keeps everything separated and in its own zone. The hot swap hard drives are a nice addition and being covered with that trick sliding panel is really nice to see. The heaviness of the chassis is overlooked once the build is completed, the chassis being moved into position, and then enjoying the silence of the dual layer construction of the Cosmos II. Even with the fans on high speed, cooling the components inside very well I might add, there was just the slightest "whir" of air to be heard emanating from inside this chassis!

 

This feature rich Ultra Tower chassis delivers in every area. If you have a server system and a ton of hard drives, this is the case for you. If you have a gaming rig similar to mine, again, this case is for you. Even if you have a Micro-ATX with ambitions to build a rockin' system in the near future, this case is for you! Do you see the trend I'm trying to lead to here? Cooler Master's gloves off approach to building the new "must have" case of 2012 has won me over. I know the breakage is bad, but I have dealt with Cooler Master before and I'm sure I can get a replacement piece, so I can overlook this on my chassis, as I really wanted to push forward so I could bring this to you as soon as possible and not wait on a part from China to arrive before doing so.

 

I hope the guy over at the other site didn't have worse luck than I did. I am spoiled when it comes to the pricing of cases, but even so, when I check around at cases of this price range I think this is much better solution than the PC-P80N or the Level 10 GT. With the MSRP set at $349.99 from Cooler Master, start saving those pennies; soon you will have access to buy one of these of your very own! We all know you want to!
