Cooler Master Cosmos C700P Full-Tower Chassis Review

Cooler Master Cosmos C700P Full-Tower Chassis




The front of the Cosmos C700P has a lot to take in, and we are just getting started. At the bottom we see a pair of bars which match those above the chassis, all of which angle in towards the gunmetal gray, tilt-out, yet fully removable plastic cover sporting the Cooler Master logo. Air enters the front of the chassis through gaps at the top and bottom, as well as on both sides, where we see the left and right-side panels angling around to meet the bezel.





In the large front I/O panel, we find a pair of USB 3.0 ports on either side of the native USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port in the middle, along with the pair of HD Audio jacks contained in the angled portion. On the top, the left side offers a high and low fan button, with white LED lights to denote which is in use. The rest button is near the mesh, but the power button is near the front and easy to access. The right side offers the RGB LED mode button, which will change the lights from cycling through the options, multiple clicks to choose an individual color in static mode, or the ability to sync them with the motherboard, as long as it is capable.




The remainder of the top panel, which is between the flat bars, is a slotted mesh cover panel, which can be removed for access. We can also see that that gunmetal gray we saw on the front flanks both sides of the mesh, and carries the color to the back.




The left side of the Cosmos C700P uses a tempered glass panel to cover this entire side of the chassis. There are curved sections at the front and the back, and no visible mounting to see. There is a hinge supporting the glass at the back, and a latch at the front to keep it closed, but otherwise, all we see is the tinted glass and a thin section of the case where the handlebars are mounted above and below it.




The gunmetal gray continues to another plastic cover which surrounds the back of the C700P as well, and this panel is also removable. The back of the chassis shows us there is room at the top to support water cooling before we eventually run into the rear I/O area and the adjustable exhaust fan. Below the fan is some passive ventilation to the right of the eight expansion slots, and at the bottom is a removable PSU mounting bracket.




The right side of the chassis mimics what we saw on the left side, but this time, rather than glass, we see a steel panel painted black. One thing to note about the side panels too is that they can be swapped if you want a left-hand case rather than one that sits to the right. This panel is also hinge supported and latches at the front of the case to keep it closed.




Under the chassis, we see that Cooler Master puts rubber pads on the handles, to ensure this massive case does not move around on you. More of the gunmetal gray plastic panels are used on the bottom, carrying the color all around the C700P, leaving the entire bottom of the chassis open for passive ventilation. Keep in mind, the mounting plate at the top can be moved here so that you could use this as an intake for fans or water cooling too.
