Cooler Master Cosmos 2 Club - Page 128

Please see my answers to akafreak several posts above regarding the H100.. However, I think the following can sum up the general flaws with the Cosmos 2:-
1. Too much plastic used for the trim
2. Lack of roof to mobo clearance prevents the use of thick rads.
3. Fan controller issues - pulsing fans and flickering LED's (soon to be rectified by a revised PCB by Coolermaster).
No case is perfect, and if the construction was all aluminum and rivet-less, like the TJ11, the price would be insane due to the tooling required. That said I do love the general look and interior design of this case, as do many others on this forum.
The stock fan configuration is a 200mm blue LED at the front, two 120mm fans on the side for the HDD's, rear 140mm and one 120mm at the top. Three 120mm or two 140mm fans can be fitted to the top (roof) section. A further two 120mm fans can be attached to the side panel for GPU cooling, and an additional 120 mm fan at the rear of the top HDD cage.
The front 200mm fan can be replaced by a 140mm fan, and below this an additional 120mm can be fitted.

These are the flaws I'm thinking too. ( same as reworker)

1. there is a lot of plastic. Youll be lucky to get this baby in one piece after shipping.
2. if you have a thick radiator > 38- 40mm you'll be lucky to make it fit at the top. I had to buy a thin radiator 35mm and Im still struggling with my mobo 8pins and 4 pin connector (Asus Rampage IV Extreme). You still have the option to remove the bottom hdd trays and put your radiator there but for a cpu only loop, it wouldn't make sense. ( there are 2 adapters included to make it fit easily )
3. The fan controller with led fan emit a ticking noise sometime at low-medium speed. At full speed no problem. However, Cooler Master seems to have fix their controller and they are testing it ( I don't think you can ask for a part request right now )
4. the weight. If you're not planning to move it, the weight shouldn't be a problem. But from my experience ( I had a LAN party 2 weeks ago) it's a pain in the ass to move it. You must put a lot of effort to avoid any pressure on those plastic part or they will crack or worse, break)

But, don't get me wrong. It is one of my best case I ever had. Tons of space and if you plan accordingly your watercooling parts/loop, you will find this case really easy to work with.


Sorry if Im doing a few grammar mistake, Im a french guy from Montreal and Im trying to give you my impressions of this case.

Originally I planned on going to a STH10 but I thought this would work well. And it has, but the case isn't doing as I had hoped with fan mounting mostly and general ease of use.

So I will probably move to a big caselabs in a couple months. I wonder if I'll sell this case or something.

How did the handles hold up carrying a full, loaded case? Pretty sturdy or was it sketchy at best?

@ Evolution069,

I forgot to mention the weight issue; for me this was only a really a problem when I was turning the case around to tidy the cables at the back of the motherboard tray once I had installed everything. The other issue for some is that the case doesn't lay flat.

Can't imagine taking this thing to a LAN party though; even with the top rails it's hard to move and I can't imagine the plastic trim taking travel well either. If i went to LAN parties, I would have purchased the Trooper.

Is it likely that they will send a new part (when requested) or something ?
Because I love the case, but the controller.. Hmm, ticking on low-medium settings and the Beep sucks.
I have another question, the wonderfull case comes with many cables that either control fans or LEDs.
I love this option to be able to turn fan LEDs on and off, without disturbing the airflow. However, this
only works with the 200MM fan.. Do you know which other fans have this LED On/Off option ?

I have 2 nice Gelid wings (4pin), but the LEDs move with the fans. No LED = No fan speed)

@ Streefkerk,

I only know of this one so far:-

http://www.cmstore.eu/120mm-red-LED-CosmosII-Trooper


Seems to be the same one that now comes with the CM Storm Trooper. Let's hope they release a blue LED version to match the Cosmos 2's front 200mm fan.
