What do you want in a new computer case? Do you need a lot of room with a clean looking chassis? Cooler Master has taken the Cosmos 1000 back to the drawing board and ended up with the Cooler Master Cosmos S computer case. The Cosmos S has changed its colors and has made improvements over the old case to improve on its ability to cool the installed components better, which is always a good thing for the consumer. Lets take a look at all of the new features that have been added as well as what Cooler Master has decided to change. Some of these new items are a massive 200mm x 230mm side fan displacing 150 c.f.m. at only 900rpm,instead of the normal push switch, a touch sensitive one is used so there are no moving parts to damage. A redesigned hard drive bay was also added along with quite a bit more. I am very curious to see how the redesigned Cosmos S compares to the Cosmos 1000.
Taking a look at the front of the box of the Cooler Master Cosmos S case, you are able to see the name of the product as well as a little caption saying "Arm yourself with the best." On one of the sides of the case, you are able to see a few products that Cooler Master recommends you put inside of this case as well as a picture of the Cooler Master Cosmos S case with those products installed inside of it. The back of the box is where you are going to find some of the main features of the case, as well as a few pictures to highlight these features. On the other side of the box is where Cooler Master decided to put all of the Cosmos S's specifications listed out, and they again put the "Arm yourself with the best" quote on this side to make you believe you are purchasing the best case on the market.
When you pull the Cooler Master Cosmos S case out of the box, you are able to see the case wrapped in a brown fabric sack as well as protected from the top and bottom by molded Styrofoam. The brown sack is there to protect the case from receiving any scratches during the shipping process, while Cooler Master decided to put the Styrofoam on the top and bottom of the case to protect it from getting bumped and bending parts of the case. When you take the brown sack off, you are able to see that the case is again covered in a plastic bag to keep from any other scratches that could occur. Cooler Master was being very careful when packing the Cosmos S case.
Lets take a look at the case and see what all there is to it.
