    Here are the first pictures of the Cooler Master Cosmos II, the next major version of the iconic PC case that solidified its maker's brand in the premium casing segment. The Cosmos II retains its trademark rail-suspended box shape of the original, and combines it with a wealth of features that became industry standards towards the end of the last decade. The Cosmos II is mostly black in color, and is curvier than the original. It's about the same size as Cosmos 1000. From the pictures, we can see that the case is airier, with gill-shaped intakes on the side panels.

    The front features a feature-rich utility panel on the top, that includes USB 3.0 ports with standard headers, eSATA, and feather-touch buttons and LEDs. A sliding visor covers the external drive bays, once slided down, three 5.25" and two 3.5" bays are exposed, the bays have tool-free covers. Don't let the fact that there are just five exposed bays for a full-ATX case disappoint you, inside the case you will find no less than 11 internal drive bays arraged along two groups. Each of the bays take 3.5" drives, the tool-free drive trays can accommodate 2.5" drives such as SSDs, too. The lower group of bays is compartmentalized with a lid that can hold two 120 mm fans, while the upper group relies on the front-intake fans.

    The PSU bay is roomy, padded to absorb vibrations, has a large intake for the PSU fan, and valved cutouts at the right spots to guide cables through. Then there's the spacious motherboard tray, which can even hold XL-ATX form-factor motherboards with 10 expansion slots. There is a wide opening behind the CPU socket area, suggesting that the board is game for even dual-socket motherboards such as the EVGA SR-2. There are plenty of holes to guide liquid-cooling tubes. The case has a number of spots you can install fans in, apart from the usual front intakes, rear exhaust, and top exhausts, there are side intakes, and intakes for the drive bays.

    Update: Our sources tell us that Cosmos II will be available in the markets by late September or early October.

    Wow, it looks like 11 internal HDD bays, not counting the 2x 3.5" and 2x 5.25" bays at the top. Yikes!

    The article does say 250-300 Euros. Given the $269-279 release price of the Cosmos and its versions, I figured this could easily demand $300 in the US market.

    Understood. Even so pricing is still high;) I cant see this case releasing for less than say the 800D did.

    hmm given the choice of this or a Cosmos S. Id still pick the Cosmos S,

    failing that. Ive got my eye on a Silverstone Raven RV01 (which looks like the most likely replacement for my Antec 902)

    I expect they improve a lot from Cosmos 1000. I had one and it was the worst 200€ expended on computer hardware in my life.

    The Cosmos 1000 has a terrible airflow, the HDDs in summer hits 65ºC (I tried installing a fan in the HDDs cage for improve the temps) and it vibrates a lot with more than 2 HDDs.

    My Cosmos has great airflow. 3 90mm case fans and proper ducting. the VGA duct is kid of pointless though.

    Soon to be 25% here. That is going to cost a bit here. But the case is gorgeous, nonetheless.

    Those exposed USB ports ruin the smooth look, Very cheap and tacky looking.

    Looks like sticking with Mv Cosmos S

    I remember these cases commanded a high price. LOL its funny seeing manufacturers bring back old classic cases, CM brought back the centurion with the 5II and 590.

    Cant wait to see reviews not that i would actually buy the Cosmos II.

    There is also the Cosmos 1000 and Pure.
