titleThe first case that I ever got excited about pre-release was the Cooler Master Cosmos. With a futuristic design packed full of features it was an impressive design. It wasn’t without its problems though and Cooler Master did a good job fixing them the Cosmos S. Of course the industry doesn’t stay still, manufactures have continued to innovate and change. Many of the features of both Cosmos’s are common place now. With competition like the 800D Cooler Master has been working on the new cosmos for a few years now, we even saw a fairly complete prototype almost a year at CES. Today we finally get to take a look at the result of all of that time and work with the Cosmos II.

Yea, a bit too pricey, but overall a great looking case. I'm really liking some of the features of it though.

I am just wondering if it could handle a serious setup. This is a serious case after all. Say, triple 580's? Just wondering if it would fare better than a 800D would. I would hope so.

Love that they put wire management feed cutouts on the tray that separates the Mobo from the PSU.

It's built to support quad 580's, something the 800D can't do at all. I really hope we see a XL-ATX case from Corsair in the future also.
