Cooler Master Cosmos SE Full-Tower Chassis Review

Cooler Master Cosmos SE Full-Tower Chassis




The front of the Cosmos SE starts at the top with the I/O panel between the aluminum bars, and the bezel curves its way down the face, offering a trio of bay covers and a large mesh panel with the Cooler Master logo on it.




We removed the bay covers as well as the front mesh panel, which can now be taken to be cleaned. This view shows the pair of 120mm blue LED fans behind them, but notice that the fans are set higher than just the mesh covers.




At the top of the front bezel there is the front I/O panel with the Cosmos name right in the center. To the left is a power button surrounded with a blue LED bar, and to the right is the reset and LED power switch with the same LED bar surrounding them. In the notch at the front there is a pair of USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports, along with 3.5mm jacks for audio.




The remainder of the top panel is this raised mesh panel that will slide out the back of the chassis to allow access to install fans and radiators to the top of the chassis.




After removing a thumbscrew and sliding the panel off, you can see there is plenty of room for fans, even room for a radiator here if you want the fans to push rather than pull air through the fins.




From the left side of this chassis, you can now see the shape of the handles and how the lines of the case try to stay with it. Even when it came down to the shape of the large window, it also mimics the top lines and those of the aluminum bars.




Viewing the back of this, at the very top is the screw needed to be removed to access the top of the chassis. Moving down there are the rear I/O, 120mm exhaust, and a trio of holes for water cooling and wiring. Then there are the seven plus two slots. The "plus two" plate offers two more holes in the steel plate, and that leaves the large hole at the bottom for the PSU.




The right side of the chassis offers a flat panel with a very large design embossed into the steel. Looking much like a Cowl induction hood, the scallops and the shape stick to the styling and add a lot of room behind it for wiring.




The bottom of the chassis is supported by the bottom two aluminum rails and rubber pads attached to them. It is easy to see where the handles are bolted to the chassis and the pair of dust filters that slide out both ends for easy cleaning, rather than one long one.
