Summary: The new Cosmos S is more like a standard Cosmos built to a budget. The updated look will grab a lot of attention but with enthusiast cases, it has to also be about flawless quality. That’s something the Cosmos S has lost in the bargain. It’s more a concern because the price of this case is still very high at Rs 14,500.
Conclusion: A lot of people have called this the best gaming PC case, I moved all of my gaming pc components over into the Cosmos S to test to see if those people were correct. After living with is for a few weeks, taking it to a lan 5 hours away, and playing around with the case a little, I would agree... To a point. Some cases like the Antec Twelve Hundred have more airflow than some wind tunnels. The Cosmos S has good airflow, but not at the same level of the Twelve Hundred.
Summary: The Cooler Master Cosmos S Case is mostly aluminum except for a few plastic parts. Despite this it's still fairly heavy but this is due to its large size. It comes in a gunmetal gray color with black brushed aluminum side panels. This color combo looks very sharp and should match most home/office setups. This case has great styling and build quality, excellent air circulation, lots of room to work, plenty of drive bays, and much more.
Conclusion: As enthusiast cases go, Cooler Master's Cosmos S is certainly a very well thought-out piece of hardware, taking the already well-designed Cosmos and adding even more capabilities into the mix in an attempt to make it the chassis to beat all chassis. Aesthetics of a case are always going to be very much dependant on a person's individual tastes, but personally I love the looks of the Cosmos S, which is both 'sporty' and refined in equal measure without ever crossing that...
Conclusion: Cooler Master sent us a new Cosmos S case (official site) to review and Tom Colarusso (aka. Yoda_Blues ) is up to the challenge of giving it the complete rundown. Check out FiringSquad's first VIDEO review by clicking the link below.
Summary: Using aluminum body and side panels, the construction quality of this case is impressive providing a very sturdy looks. We liked the upper handles, which facilitates a lot the transportation of your computer, especially if you have tons of parts inside, which make the computer very heavy. The feet that are actually handles identical to the top handles is also an excellent feature for the same reason. Its size and fans will surely keep you computer running very cool.
Excerpt: With a meaner-looking design and improved cooling, the Cosmos S is one of the better choices for performance fans looking for lots of room for expansion, but the original Cosmos 1000 exceeds it in some areas.
Pros: Lots of room for expansion, Quiet, Mostly tool-less design, Quiet, Very good cooling
Cons: No reset switch, Difficult-to-remove drive cage, Large size and top-mounted ports preclude placing it under most desks
Summary: Coolermaster has done an excellent job of improving the original Cosmos and turing it into a enthusiast gaming chassis. I have to say in my opinion, the Cosmos S is one of the best computer chassis I've come across. It offers a very impressive feature list, enough to satisfy any enthuisast for gamer. What's more, the build quality is excellent, and it looks absolutely great.
The sleek design with its two tone colour really appeals to the enthusiast gamer.
Pros: - Excellent build quality, - Watercooling ready, - Included 3 x 120mm fans, - Massive 200mm fan included, - Mesh grille throughout, - Looks great
Conclusion: The Cosmos S is yet another example of a solid and to some extent perfect product. On the other hand, the amount of miserable enclosures I find on the market is simply unbelievable. Without calling names or models, I find 60 to 70% of PC cases unreasonable for usage. Thus it’s great that companies like Cooler Master spend their precious resources designing products that flash with technological innovations and fresh layouts.
Conclusion: With a ticket in excess of £150, the RC1100 is on the pricy side but does look the part. And not only does the colour scheme work well, it's clear that the quality control has been ramped up. There's also epic storage potential - up to 8TiB if you install another 4-in-3 module, with enough space left over for a couple of optical drives.
