Cooler Master Cosmos II Case Review

Introduction

The new Cosmos II is a huge and heavy (48.5 lbs or 22 kg) full-tower case, dubbed “ultra tower” by the manufacturer. It comes with all the features you can imagine, such as support for big motherboards (E-ATX, XL-ATX, SSI CEB, and SSI EEB), a big radiator for liquid cooling solutions, and 10 expansion slots. Its price tag is also heavy: USD 350. Let’s explore this new release.

The Cosmos II follows the same design concept as the other members of the family, with sturdy aluminum handles that also act as feet for the case.

The side panels are thick and heavy, weighing 5.5 lbs (2.6 kg) each. They are constructed with a thick layer of plastic with an aluminum sheet on the external side. So, imagine how much they would weigh if they were manufactured in steel! Both panels have a huge air intake mesh with air filters. Unfortunately, these filters are not so easy to clean, as you will have to unscrew them. You can install two 120 mm fans on the left panel.
