    The CoolerMaster has manufactured one of the best boxes on the market, and I'm talking about the CoolerMaster Cosmos 2.

    Today I am happy to look at this fantastic box that will let anyone open mouth!

    - Exterior

    The CoolerMaster presents us with an outer box almost black, with some shades of purple

    [​IMG]

    Prepared for SLI or CF 4 plates

    [​IMG]

    Some Specifications

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Case packed for two Styrofoam plates

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The CoolerMaster Cosmos 2 as we can see is an extremely large box, in the case of a Full Tower

    [​IMG]

    All in shiny black

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here the slide plate hiding the main panel

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    With this panel can control up to 10 fans, with 3 different speeds as we see

    [​IMG]


    The sides of the Cosmos 2 open up very different from what we are used to seeing

    [​IMG]

    Both have a dust filter on the bottom


    [​IMG]


    In front we have the entrance of bays

    [​IMG]

    At the top we have a large network that spans the same

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    At the rear seen in the middle above, the screw hole to remove the top, and also the right side three holes for the tubes watercooling

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    At the top we can add 3 or 2 120mm fans for 140, and also a 360mm or 280mm radiator if we want a system watercooling

    [​IMG]


    In this case we used a 360mm radiator

    [​IMG]

    Here we can see the lever to open the side

    [​IMG]

    just press the same side and pull the side panel


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Even at the rear of the box have an excellent detailed arrangement of the source, where the CoolerMaster gives a rubber-based non vibrating and noise

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    As we can see, the sides have a perfect finish

    [​IMG]

    Hinged strong to support the weight of lateral

    [​IMG]

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    - Interior

    The entire interior of the Cosmos 2 is black, great pains CoolerMaster look up in this case

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Inside is a small container inside where we have all the accessories box

    [​IMG]

    In addition to the instruction manual of the Cosmos II, we have an extension of 8-pin ATX, Speaker usual, screws and clamps. We also have 2 brackets that allow us to use a radiator at the bottom of the box.

    An interesting detail is that this box comes with one key protection for the front 2 bays


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here we can see the bays with tool-less system which makes it very easy to use

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Here we have 5 docs for disks

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Like most 6 at the bottom, cooled by two fans 120mm

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    all Designed by CoolerMaster

    [​IMG]


    As expected, the CoolerMaster did not forget the storage of cables, rubbers and put in all the holes for the cables

    [​IMG]

    Contrary to what we're used to seeing these rubbers are quite flexible

    [​IMG]


    Already prepared for watercooling tubes and cables graphics cards

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    On the other side we have 4 screws holding the 2 pieces each with 3 docks so we can remove a radiator to put in extra low

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    In front we have a 200mm fan to cool the components inside

    [​IMG]

    Still on the side, we have a small plate that you can remove to clean the filter

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    At the bottom of the box, the rubber feet have not to vibrate and also a filter for the source

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    - Comparison and systems

    Here are some pictures to purchase the CoolerMaster Cosmos 2 with the NZXT Switch 810 Gunmetal and a SilverStone TJ07 painted white

    I'll let the pictures speak for themselves

    Because this case was thought to enthusiasts, why not talk about modding systems and top?
    As usual, there are already several mods this beautiful box, and here I leave some systems to take some ideas

    - Conclusion [/ b]

    It's more than proved that the Cosmos 2 is a high-end box! Probably the best box ever made by CoolerMaster simply surreal.
    Just before even being the one, we can see the greatness of such 22kg of steel!
    A box that seeks to please all lovers of large systems, and clearly becomes a great option and a threat ace remaining brands.


    Pros + [/ b]
    Panel to control fans;
    2x USB 3.0;
    Capacity for multiple graphics cards large;
    Build quality;
    Design and features

    Cons - [/ b]
    The "only" problem this big box is the price (about 350 €), but considering the target audience of this certainly becomes very tempting to buy something!


    With that attach to the CoolerMaster Cosmos 2 certificate r1sKas Choice Gold!

    It surely is nearly the best or the best, with so many extras and features. But personally between the Cosmos 1 and 2, I like my Cosmos S better: it is mostly aluminium and is simple, clean, no extras.

    Thanks r1skas!!
