Cooler Master COSMOS SE Review


Cooler Master COSMOS SE Testing:

Testing involved recording temperatures for the CPU, GPU, and motherboard during idle and load phases. The load was simulated by running Prime95’s small FFTs and 3Dmark Vantage for one hour. The maximum temperatures were recorded using HW Monitor 1.21.0. Please note that each case is tested as delivered, including location of fans, unless otherwise noted.


Testing Setup:


Comparison Cases:







The CPU and GPU idle temps were as expected, nothing remarkable. But under a load, we see the CPU temps on the Phanteks Enthoo Primo and the Corsair Air 540 were a little below the other cases. This tells me that the air flow through the cases, at least for the Noctua intake, is not all the same. There seems to be an advantage, however slight, for the Phanteks and Corsair cases. For the Corsair case, maybe it is the fact that there isn't a hard drive cage that the front fans have to push through. The air can go directly to the CPU cooler. And on the Phanteks, it is such a large case (internal volume) and the case fan at the bottom may give it an advantage.

The GPU temps were virtually identical for idle and load between all the cases. So it looks like the GPU is getting a consistent supply of intake air between all the cases.
