Verdict

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.

Cooler Master Cosmos S detailed review


The New Cosmos — Now Lighter

 

Cooler Master has a new cabinet on their earlier case — the Cosmos. This new one is called the Cosmos S. The old Cosmos, like the Cooler Master Stacker set the standard for high-end enthusiast level cabinets. The new one seems to be an improvement over it. We look at what they’ve changed.

While unpacking the humongous box that it comes in, we noticed that it was a lot lighter than the previous one. It has a little more of an aggressive look but that’s left to personal taste. It still has the similar design with the piping that runs along the top and bottom of the case. The side door of the case has a huge 230 mm fan. There are three other fans in the case — one on the top, back and front. A sliding dust filter fits at the bottom where the power supply fan would normally be.

 

The quality is still there but it’s not as great as the Stacker and the older Cosmos. The rear panels seem thinner and can be depressed by applying pressure. The side doors wobble about little bit and the front bays are covered with a thin mesh instead of the clean glossy panels. Those too aren’t very steady. The top too has a mesh which means frequent cleaning will be required.

 

The top front of the case has the I/O panel. Four USB ports, two sound ports, an eSATA and a Firewire port can be accessed. There are plenty of drives that can be put into this case. The punch-in mechanism makes it easy to remove and add drives.
