Default Coolermaster announces Cosmos II

Cooler Master Announces The Cosmos II Chassis | Hardware Canucks

I am pleasantly suprised that you can mount a 240 rad in the bottom. So in total you can have a 2x240 at the bottom a 360 and a 120/140 rad. It would have been nice to see the powersupply turned sideways though like in the tj07/11 series so you could mount a huge rad at the bottom. Also, kind of disappointed it doesn't have a window but I am sure there will be aftermarket ones sold through coolermaster.

The thing that kills this though is the price. $450 is absolutley ridiculous for a coolermaster case. Especially for the amount of plastic on it.

Your so close to a Little Devil, TJ11 or Caselabs I have no idea why anyone would go for this instead.


-EDIT-

A CM rep just informed me that the price will be 350USD/CAD

It is more expensive in your europe because of taxes and transfer fees.

My thoughts have completley changed. For 350 this is a fantastic case. Competes with the tj07 and out right beats it in most cases. I would love to have seen it at 299 price point but hey, what can you do.

A+ Coolermaster

Edit again, when you put a rad are the fan on the top of the case like some other case or there is just no place for them??

If it is $350 then it might not be so bad. I've heard that there is almost no room for radiators at the top though.

From the pictures, that seems to be the case

Definitely won't be fitting my HWLabs SR-1 360 up there...

It's a decent case and all but I think I'll be sticking with my Cosmos S for a while even if it is old.
