First of all, the Cosmos C700P is huge. Anyone who has owned a Cosmos previous to this will know what we mean, but while big cases, the Cosmos line delivered in ways that smaller is just now catching up to regarding capabilities. Knowing this, Cooler Master did not come out with something like the older designs beyond the aesthetics of the exterior. They decided not only to deliver the utmost in wire management, deliver one of the cleanest builds we have ever seen in a finished product, but at the same time leaves us five other choices of orientations.
Using a system of frame rails with evenly spaced holes on all sides of it, allows all of the components to go from the typical layout, to a ninety-degree layout with the rear I/O at the top, but it can also go inverted. Not just one side either. You can completely flip it front to back as well, taking this right-hand chassis and making it suitable to use on the left side of you. It also helps that the door panels, as well as their hinge systems, are reversible too. We love the move to flat bars above and below the chassis, we love the dual-curved tempered glass panel, and what takes the cake is the RGB LED system which seamlessly blends into the exterior design of gunmetal gray and black sexiness. Cooler Master has outdone themselves with the Cosmos C700P and raised the bar to a height that the rest of the market will likely take years to try to match.
Even though the interior is all held in place with screws, there is not one bit of this chassis that can be called flimsy. Even after removing the covers, some of the bays, and even pulling out the motherboard tray and fan mounting plate at the top, we would still not be afraid to stand on the Cosmos C700P. It is built that tough. To be honest, only one thing bothered us in the entire build, and that is the lack of thumbscrews for the expansion slots. Due to the thickness of the frame rails, it is tough to start such small screws as the ones we are given, and thumbscrews would be much easier to start correctly, and then move on to screwing them into place. The flexibility of this chassis is what the huge selling point is. Some cases may offer a couple of orientation options, and some may allow you to shift the guts from one side to the other, but never before have we seen such a universal design delivering six possible orientations in one chassis.
We also have to assume, shortly after this Cosmos C700P hits shelves, that Cooler Master will offer optional parts for it as well. Meaning one may be able to get a second glass side panel, more drive trays, and more radiator support trays. Every detail was looked at, Cooler Master developed the best ways to make all of the features and details happen, and with a maximum sound level of 38 dB of noise coming from the pre-installed fans, thermal results are kept comfortable inside, without being a nuisance to the ears. A chassis like this is what every company should strive to do at least once, as the Cosmos C700P is the new crown holder for the big dog cases out there today. No other case being sold today is this flexible, adjustable, sexy, sleek, roomy, customizable, yet at the same time look so much like what took them to the top nearly a decade ago.
Now that we have it all out on the table to digest, that MSRP does not sound nearly as bad. All of the options, the panels covering all things nasty to look at, the inclusion of a fan controller, an RGB system which can be motherboard controlled, set to static colors, or allowed to cycle through colors on its own is all terrific to find. The modularity takes top honors though, as no other chassis can do what this Cosmos C700P brings to the table. For the measly sum of just $299.99, you can have the best thing in chassis design since cases went from beige to black. Cooler Master is at the all-time top of their game right now, and the Cosmos C700P is the exclamation point to the proof. If you have the room for a big chassis, and you want the best of all things available in the case market, look no further. The Cosmos C700P is not only stunning in its appearance, but has every option known to the world of cases incorporated in it, leaving no customer to be left wanting in any way, shape, or form.
