    We got our first glimpse of the next major update of the iconic Cosmos case from Cooler Master, the Cosmos II, in as early as June, as the Computex event was wrapping up. It still had some rough edges, and we were then told that a market launch was expected in the September~October time-frame. That of course, never happened, and the only other time we saw this elusive case was when it was chosen to house the MaximumPC Dream Machine 2011, in July. Alas, even as this year draws to a close, there's no sign of the Cosmos II anywhere. That was, until Cooler Master sent a press and subscriber email last week (dated 10th December), pointing out that the official launch was about 24 days away, or the 3rd of January, 2012. Just in time to hog some CES limelight.

    Looks like a sweet case. Much nicer than my $30 xigmatek case. Oh well at least my components inside it are nice :p

    I still have my Cosmos 1000. I love that case. I'd pick this up too, if I was in the market for a new case.

    I love my cosmos S... (except for the bare aluminium interior!). The pic of this Cosmos II looks to be a little too much on the plastic side but perhaps its a bad pic.

    Either way my existing Cosmos S is a tank and I cant see myself upgrading it for many years... perhaps thats why they need to build the new ones less durable ;)
