Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 Case Video Review
18 January 2009
Summary: The Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 Case is probably one of the most anticipated cases out there. It comes with lots of drive bays, acoustic foam, 5 120mm fans, large handles, and has a tooless design for installing drive in the 5.25" drive bays. It also has a very unique hard drive compartment system for storing up to 6 HDDs. This case is mostly steel though so it's fairly heavy, but this keeps the cost down over an all aluminum case.
Summary: There was definitely a feeling of anticlimax when we finally got our heads around this enclosure. Although this case has a lot of potential and some very nice features, it somehow didn't quite live up to what it promised.
Pros: e-SATA on front I/O panel, 4 USB 2.0 ports on front I/O panel, comprehensive fan mounts and filtered cooling system, tool-free 5.25in drive installation
Cons: Minimal room to run cables behind the motherboard panel, not as quiet as it should be with all the soundproofing
