Always liked Coolermaster and this looked just as stunning as some of their other cases. I particullary liked the pull put drive feature.

It looks like a toaster, a very nice toaster but still, a toaster nonetheless.

Not that I would be discounting it as a potential choice as a new case as I have had my ATC201 for years now and it is still up there at the top as far as I am concerned.

Looks nice enough, but at that price... go a little higher and get a stacker.

Stacker 830 shape of course, the 832 doesn't look so good with the more solid front.

a very beautiful toaster, i agree. it looks great, build quality looks awesome, performance is good, it *looks* very silent, bottomline it has everything u want in a new case (except the price tag, as usual). but not all of my buddies are "IT-updated" as they should be, and the less of them would definitely sees it as... hey, that case looks like a big toaster.

I like that whole drive cage setup, but I would be blown away by it if it had connectors in each slot to allow you to remove a drive without having to remove both case panels, sort of like a hot-swap setup but you wouldn't actually be hot-swapping. Amazing case though, I like the rounded edge around the inside, looks very forgiving on the forearms.

I'd be interested in seeing some hdd temps. Especially in a room a little warmer than room temp (and definitely warmer than office temps).

I think one realy nice feature I believe you forgot to touch on was the one button push for the rom drives. Another thing I think alot of the readers here at Bit-Tech would like to know is the possibilities of mounting a rad at the top of the case without having to mod anything.

You can check out the scores for the Cooler Master Cosmos below in our ultra high-tech picture table which was made in something a hell of a lot more fancy and elite than Microsoft Excel. You’d better believe it.

Why does my gut feeling say, "Paint.Net"?

This is a definite no no if you want to install a 120.2 rad. Single rads work fine though.

looks nice.. far out of my price range though, I have an ebuyer x-gaming case which cost £15 ;)

not much on noise.... not much at all :(

HDD temps and subjective noise levels vs P18X series please!

I had a chance to play w/ the RC-690 (cosmos little brother) and overall decided it's not quite right for my needs.

Thanks Tim. But I was checking my latest Maximum PC and it looks like they mounted a triple 120 rad inside this years dream machine. Im confused.

Good review. I too saw this case in Maximum PC's Dream Machine and it looked awesome!

One question -- did you run the heat tests with and without that "GPU Gaurd"/wire gaurd?
As I haven't seen it in detail I was wondering if left in(if you wanted to hide wires with it), it could somehow change the air flow through the case...

I like the review.

Problem for me is that the side profile shot makes this case look like a new addition to the Samsonite luggage family.

ya I plan to pick up this case once their aluminum model comes out closer to the end of the year ^_^

Sorry about that - but there's rarely anything to say on that front. The case was quiet, very quiet. It wasn't a case of "wow, is this thing actually running?" but it was a case of straining to hear it.

Wow, i'm itching to use one of these now, looks beautiful

that thing looks so painfully gaudy, words cannot begin to approach an approximation of the loathing i feel when i lay eyes upon it.

in other words, there's no accounting for taste :p

The Cosmos is an interesting case with good possibilities for building a quite system. However, having the USB audio ports on top makes it difficult for those of us who have to keep it under the desk. A big NO for me

remember that this case weights 17kg :D

would be nice to get some sound proofed panels for my stacker..... mmmmm I could do this myself, any idea where I can get sound proofing foam that they use in these things?

check places that sell car speakers particulary sub boxes i have found adhesive backed foam from those places though it may be a bit of an overkill for a case

Bindi and I have been meaning to get around to a soundproofing podcast/article for a while. I'll give him a poke about it tomorrow as we have some of the foam lying around.
