Cooler Master has shown us that it has worked to refine its Cosmos design in order to make a case that’s more tailored towards gamers and those that are looking for better cooling performance.

That chassis is known as the Cosmos S and Cooler Master was keen to point out that it has made a number changes to the original design.

The first that became apparent to us was the touch sensitive power button which, the company says, is switched using the capacitance when your finger presses on it for a couple of seconds. Much like the CM Stacker of old, the whole of the front of the case can be used for 5.25” drives if you feel the need to that kind of thing.

Inside though, Cooler Master is using the same quick release clamps that it used on the Cosmos’ 5.25” drive bays.

In addition, Cooler Master has listened to user feedback and you can now install a 120.3 radiator in the top without having to butcher your system with a Dremel and cable management has also been improved further too.

Cooler Master’s representatives told us that the case is expected to go on sale in March and has an estimated retail price of around £150 (inc. VAT) which, given the features, doesn’t sound like bad value for money. Of course, that’s not to say it’s cheap though... but then most ‘gaming’ products from other manufacturers aren’t cheap either.
