    Cooler Master's Cosmos S chassis aimed at gamers

    More aluminium, better thermal control and a funky power button, to name a few of the extras on this chassis which will come to market in March '08.

    Is it me or does this one also seem to be missing a door on the front compared to the normal Cosmos? No wonder it weighs less!

    Re: Cooler Master's Cosmos S chassis aimed at gamers

    Actually, the door was the one thing putting me off the Cosmos. I just don't like cases with doors.
    I'll be keeping an eye on this version.

    Too heavy, too expensive, for what I need it for anyway.

    Re: Cooler Master's Cosmos S chassis aimed at gamers

    I think (from the reviews I've read of the Cosmos 1000 predecessor) they've removed the drive bay setup because it caused the drives contained within to get overly hot; there was after all no fan blowing through that area.

    Also, I reckon that they'll continue to sell the Cosmos 1000 - as (aside from the drives-overheating issue) it is a very good case - I myself have had one on my "would like" list for some time.

    Re: Cooler Master's Cosmos S chassis aimed at gamers

    The HDD heat issue is avoided on the 1000 with the additon of the fan within the space provided...

    Obviously this has a noise impact on the chassis overall though.

    I was under the impression that the fan you mention (see below image) was attached to the base of the case and could only be directed towards the HDDs?
    bit-tech.net/content_images/2007/08/coolermaster_cosmos/s19.jpg (can't post urls yet )
    Or is there a location for an extra fan at the front of the case (Between the door and the HDD bays?)

    See the left hand side of the HDD bay area, a fan can be directly attached there.

    Re: Cooler Master's Cosmos S chassis aimed at gamers

    I'm still not convinced that would offer sufficient cooling - I think I'll be waiting till the Cosmos S is released to see what reviewers make of the switch back to the standard drive layout...

    Re: Cooler Master's Cosmos S chassis aimed at gamers

    The bottom fan can be relocated to go above the HD bays. Looks like there are holes for a 120mm fan, so you might be able to do it without the shroud thing too.
    MADSHRIMPS - Hardware Reviews ,Crazy Projects, Modding Tutorials and Overclocking

    I didnt really like the look of the new chassis but this pic with the side panel on makes it look a lot nicer.


    They still need to sort out the cable management though, those bars at the back make it impossible to route all the cables that way, making it look very messy.

    Re: Cooler Master's Cosmos S chassis aimed at gamers

    The funny thing is I remember reading that review by madshrimps - yet I managed to overlook the picture of the cooling fan on top of the HDD enclosure. Oh well.

    With the cable management still a bit of a muddle it'll be interesting to see if they are taking note and are (hopefully) willing to do something about it.

    I hope so too, thats the only thing left that is making me think twice getting a cosmos.
    I'll probably end up getting one though since I don't plan on putting a window in. I'll just have to strap all the cables down.

    Wasn't there a black aluminium cosmos shown on hexus tv that was built for scan? Is that still coming out or has that been cancelled and replaced by the 1010 and the s?
