[hexus] Cooler Master Cosmos S Review

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter

With a ticket in excess of £150, the RC1100 is on the pricy side but does look the part. And not only does the colour scheme work well, it's clear that the quality control has been ramped up.

There's also epic storage potential - up to 8TiB if you install another 4-in-3 module, with enough space left over for a couple of optical drives.

Tied with the pre-installed fans and the cooling potential - including liquid cooling - it's an out-of-the-box solution that offers a great deal of scope to the ambitious user. Ideally, though, it would be one who's not too fussed about noise. By modern standards and the standards set by the original COSMOS, this newcomer is far from quiet.

Bump for an amazing case. They took much better photos than that of the Bit-tech review. It helps to give a sense of the inside of the case better. All in all a damn good case I say.

Shame they botched the desgin so much loud, individulal drive caddies, no fix for the power cable issues (behind the motherboard tray).

It is a shame they moved to the entirely open front, being able to just mount a 360 rad on top is great, mounting it in the front too is nice, but removes alot of the signature Cosmos features.

Actually it reminds me a lot of my TT Armor. Bet Antec 900 users will find it very familiar looking too.

My roommate has a Cosmos, helped him put it together, and it really had a lot of nice features.. well had a lot of nice features the seem to have been removed.

Looks more like a Stacker than an Antec 900. A sexy, sci-fi'd up Stacker

I prefer the look of my basic Cosmos, but it's naff at cooling

I must say its really disappointing. In comparison to the old cosmos this is so flawed. They made this case for gamers so why on earth did they design it so hard to work with?

Gamers are always switching hardware for better products. But if the hard drives are so poorly managed you cant make them hot swappable.

And the plastic is alright but if you bring your comp to lan parties i'd rather have steel vs aluminum/plastic. (personal opinion tho)

anyways, they could have done much better.
