Case Build & Finished Product
Even if we did install an optical device, a reservoir, or even a card reader, the terrific thing is we never have to see then if we aren't using them. Remember, the front panel does not have to come all the way off for access. The tabs at the top release and the panel tilts out far enough that the drive trays won't hit it, and with enough room to slide in a memory card into a card reader.
The finished look through the left side of the case is stunning. Since the panels block the majority of our view, eyes immediately move to the motherboard, GPU, and the SSD hanging on the PSU cover. Using our Z270 system, we are left with gobs of room to install anything we wanted to, and the case is so enormous, it makes this ATX motherboard look like a toy. Don't forget either; this is only one layout the Cosmos C700P offers.
Nothing about the installation process gave us any concerns in the back of the case either. The I/O shield pops into place, and the fan wire is routed out of the way already. The video card slipped into place without hassle, sag, or having to force in the back of the chassis. Since the PSU sits on a shelf, it is easy to line up and secure.
Since the panel that covers this is made of steel, we didn't have to worry much about how the wires look, but we did find mounting points for wires everywhere they were needed. We also like the fact that we can hide the 24-pin lead under the cover, and what is visible is minimal at best.
After putting the panels back on the hinges, the latches at the front aligned correctly to keep both the glass and the metal side panels securely closed to the frame of the Cosmos C700P. The tinted glass does hinder the view of the interior, but with ample lighting on the components, all of the branding and flashes of LEDs are visible.
Adding the power cable and powering the system on, we find many more things to appreciate. First of all, the glow of the RGB LED lighting system above and below the chassis is stunning to look at and add ambiance to any desk or office. All of the buttons and LED markers at the top of the chassis are white, while the rest can be changed via the button in the I/O panel or controlled via motherboard software. Aesthetically, we loved it before the LED light show, and in the end, we love it even more.
