Cooler Master has recently unveiled a new computer case in the highly popular Cosmos series that is known as the Cosmos II and was designed in order to fit the needs of the high-end systems used by enthusiasts and gamers.
When it designed the Cosmos II, Cooler Master wanted it to provide enough room to fit even some of the most powerful systems out there, so it made the case large enough to accommodate an XL-ATX sized motherboard and four-way SLI/Crossfire GPU configurations.
Such a high-performance configuration however also requires an impressive cooling system, so the Cosmos II comes fully equipped in this regard with enough room to fit a front mounted 200mm LED fan as well as an additional 120mm and/or 140mm fans.
Furthermore, the case was also designed so that it will support a 240mm radiator, while the removal of the bottom hard drive cages results in space for a second 240mm radiator.
Speaking of HDDs, the Cosmos II can hold a maximum of 12 3.5-inch drives (thanks to its 2 HDD cages) and three 5.25-inch drives.
The airflow inside the case can also be optimized by routing cables through the grommet-lined holes placed along the motherboard.
Other features include tool-less 5.25-inch and 3.5-inch drive bays installation, removable PSU intake and front air filters, front panel USB 3.0 ports, a CPU heat sink retention hole, as well as a so called “+1 expansion slot” that allows users to install add-on cards via PCI extensions, or install other function panels for CCFL / Cold Cathode lighting control, or some additional cooling.
Another interesting feature is the inclusion of an “Advanced Control Panel” which can manage up to 10 fans and also provides 4 channel fan speed control.
Backed by two-year warranty, Cooler Master Cosmos II chassis is supposed to hit EU market in second half of January, 2012 with a the price tag of €349.99 ($456.5 US).
