Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 Reviewgotdamojo06 - November 29, 2007
Just by looking at the case, you can tell that it is very sturdy and has a rather modern, simplistic look. The way the case looks, everything seems to just flow together very well. When you open the front door to the case, it will reveal the five available 5.25" drive bay slots, one of which can be converted into a 3.2" bay. Both of the sides of this case are very plain, with no Plexiglass window, nor does it feature a side-mounted fan. The back of the Cosmos 1000 is similar to the back of most cases, however this one has the power supply mounted at the bottom instead of the top. It also features two pre-drilled holes that can be used for feeding tubing for a water cooling setup in and out of the case.
On the top of this case is where the power and reset switches are located, as well as four external USB 2.0 ports, a single Firewire port, a single eSATA port, and input and output audio jacks. Between the power and reset switches are the HDD indication light and power indication light.
The bottom of this case is where Cooler Master has put the air intakes for the case as well as for the power supply. There is a 120mm fan mounted towards the front of the case to suck in air and towards the back there is a hole where the power supply can suck in air for its fan.
Packaged with the case is what Cooler Master calls an "Accessory Carrying Case". Inside is a screwdriver keyring, a bag of screws, 20 cable ties, and an extended cable for the 8-pin power cable.
