The original Cooler Master Cosmos enclosure is still regarded by many enthusiasts and system builders as a thing of unmatched beauty and to this day it has a devout following. In many ways, the Cosmos was a generation or more ahead of its competition and now Cooler Master is on the verge of introducing their newest flagship chassis: the Cosmos II.
While not much is known about this full-aluminum case other than a few rumors and teaser shots here and there, we’ve been beating the contact bush to see what falls out and some more details have come to light. First of all, it will only be available in black with a black interior unlike the photo above (which was custom painted by SmoothCreations and leaked through unofficial channels) and the price will be fitting of its flagship status: $349 USD. Unfortunately, the release date is under a firm NDA so we can’t quite discuss that but it’s safe to assume it will hit retail well before the Christmas shopping season hits high gear.
The specifications are exactly what one wold expect of an expensive flagship full tower chassis. The Cosmos II features a ton of expansion bays of which some will be removable, USB 3.0 compatibility, support for the largest motherboards currently on the market and will come with a five pre-installed fans. There are also built-in hot swap docks, a 4-channel fan controller, room for a 360mm radiator in the Cosmos II’s upper regions and of course full certification for 4-card SLI and Crossfire.
Below are some additional pictures and we’ll have a review once launch gets a bit closer.
