The Cooler Master Cosmos II Ultra Tower Chassis
Our first look at the Cosmos II is of the front of the chassis. The top starts with a somewhat exposed front I/O panel and blends down into an aluminum panel with the Cooler Master logo on it. Below this you see a mesh panel between the ABS plastic sides that blend the panels together with gentle curves and styling lines.
The front I/O panel has the audio jacks and the e-SATA port on the left side. In the middle is a pair of USB 3.0 ports with the rest of the room taken by the other four USB 2.0 ports.
The aluminum panel that used to be here slides down slowly, but automatically, once the magnetism of the latch is overcome. It exposes the three removable 5.25" bays drive covers and the two lockable X-drive covers to protect your hard drives that go in there.
With the slide panel back up, you can now get access to fully remove the mesh at the bottom of the front bezel. This makes both fan installation and dust removal much easier.
Back to the top of the Cosmos II, just above the front I/O panel, there is another aluminum cover that will slide back to expose the controls for the chassis. These textured aluminum push button switches will control each section of fans speed individually as well as offering a large power button. There are the power and activity lights at the very front edge that will illuminate when the system is powered.
I did have to remove a thumbscrew to gain access here, but you can see there is plenty of room here to hide a thick radiator or fans. You also get a peek of the damage incurred where the top handle meets the plastic in the nearest corner.
This is just another angle so you could see what went wrong. Someone obviously dropped this and while this damage is depressing, the show must go on! For the purposes of this review, I will be lowering scores for the packaging, but there is still way more to see, so let's get on to it!
