Cooler Master’s original Cosmos case was one of my favorites – alongside the Antec 900. It has great cooling, looks, it’s quiet, and durable – the problem is the price. Still, if it fits in your budget, I say go for it.
Cooler Master Cosmos II: Large and in Charge
The Cooler Master Cosmos is more or less legendary among top-of-the-line enclosures. It’s not hard to see why, either: it’s big, it has loads of expansion, and it looks like a giant refrigerator…for your computer. That said, some time has passed since the Cosmos originally landed with very little in the way of updates. Today, Cooler Master brings us the long-awaited update, the Cosmos II. With a $349 MSRP and a shipping weight of nearly fifty pounds, this enclosure is oversized in every way. Will it retain the cachet of its predecessors, though, or have advances in the computing market since the era of the original Cosmos left the Cosmos II a shiny relic of a bygone era?
