For those that were really into the Cosmos design, but wanted a smaller version, your time has come. Let's look at the Cosmos SE in detail.

Looking at this chassis takes me way back to my roots as a reviewer, and the first chassis I ever reviewed. Back then it was the Cosmos S, not the original concept, but the slightly revised design. Being well over five years ago now and looking back, that chassis was well ahead of the curve, and is likely why it is still such a success today. When we were at CES, we got to peek at the new Cosmos II and all the pomp and circumstance that it delivered. Even today, I am still seeing modded versions of this chassis daily in social media, and I think while it's a huge case, it will always have a spot in a lot of PC users hearts.

But what about those who aren't in the market for a super tower, but still fell in love with the concept? Well, today is your day, as Cooler Master delivers a lighter, more agile, road and track version of the Cosmos design. Keeping all that is holy to the name Cosmos, it is obvious that this new chassis is befitting of the naming - it is more like they threw it in the dryer on high heat, and now we have a medium sized version. While the exterior carries a lot of similar things to the Cosmos II, with the reduction in size, the interior had to be reworked, but Cooler Master still figured out ways to add things that are firsts for ever being done before.

Over the last year or so, Cooler Master has really stepped up their game and want to run with the big dogs now. Everything from new AIO coolers coming out, to always keeping up and setting trends with their mice and keyboards, it doesn't surprise me that they are able to pull off new and insinuative things year after year.

Sticking with that trend, while really hard to destroy the name Cosmos anyways, even with the reduction in size, Cooler Master has run through this new Cosmos SE we are looking at today with a fine toothed comb, and truly thought of everything when putting together this aggressively sleek chassis.

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
