Cooler Master Cosmos II MbK Sponsered by: Hi my modding friends, A new year begins, so a good start in terms of a new modding season With a brand new case .... which is released right now, the Cosmos II The new flagship of Cooler Master. The hardware which comes in it is not known yet for sure, but it is certain that an x79 mobo and a number GTX580 GPUs comes in And offcourse watercooled. The color combination is going to be black, gray and white The package was brought a month ago, the deliveryman cursed me What a case and what a weight, unbelievable. My wife was pissed and called me some names I didn't heard before So I needed to make space in my workshop to properly view the case. The package: First unpacking which quite a operation turned out to be And here it is the great Cosmos II Lots of case with a lot of space, really a true pleasure to mod this one Cooler Master Raymen, Ruud and Marco and of course anyone who makes this possible ... Thanks! And then moved it straight to my workshop to view and show interior First some specifications: -Exterior Material: Aluminum, mesh, synthetics -Interior: Steel alloy, plastic, rubber -Dimensions: 344 (W) x 704 (H) x 664 (D) mm / 13.5 x 27.7 x 26.1 inches -Weight: 22 lb kg/48.5 -Maximum compatibility CPU cooler height: 190 mm/7.48 in. -GPU-Length: 385 inches mm/15.15 -Type-M/B: Micro-ATX, Micro ATX, E-ATX, Extended ATX, SSI CEB, SSI EEB Once dragged in my workshop and opened it immediately, I noticed how much 3.5 Drive Bay are in it less than 13 pieces in total (2 from X dock, Mid cage for 5 HDDs, bottom cage for 6 hard drives) The middle bay has room for 5 HDDs In the lower HDD bay there's room for 6 hard drives which is hidden behind a beautiful fan bracket with 2 x 120 mm fan, 1200 RPM, 17 dBA And here there is room for 6 HDD's The PSU has shifted back for some extra space inside And is raised a little At the front there is space for two HDDs through the X-dock and there are three 5.25-inch drive bays available Below this compartment, behind the mesh part there is one 200 mm LED fan, 700 RPM, 19 dBA (converted from 120 / 140 mm) And below that there is still room for a 120mm fan for the airflow trough the lower HDD's bracket The back has room for a 10+1 Expansion Slots http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/Cosmos%201/DSC05678.jpg[/IMG And a 140 mm fan, 1200 RPM, 19 dBA comes with it to the rear [IMG]http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/Cosmos%201/DSC05679.jpg At the top is a lot of space under the mesh This cover is very easy to remove with a screw, and below is enough space for 3 fans and wiring There also would fit a 360 rad but for that there are some adjustments needed. And it comes with a black 120 mm fan, 1200 RPM, 17 dBA Also on the top there is a sliding panel. Below that there is a control panel with 7 functions More about this in the next update At the front there is the I / O panel with 2 xUSB 3.0, 4 x USB 2.0, 1 x e-SATA and audio in / out And there is very good tought about the cable management With enough holes I could go on an d on about the case but..... now it's modding time I removed the top mesh and made a number of strips. Which are directed obliquely backwards, this is still a rugged design and has yet to be finished Cut out the fan controller carefully Here is coming a slot loader DVD or Bluray. For measuring I used this one . And made a slot for it Where before was the sliding panel I cut and bent a piece of aluminum Which is placed like this And made the slot for the slot loader drive I hope this is a good start of the new year for you ... for me it is More to come!!!
