Cooler Master has launched the latest iteration of one of their most popular product lines to date. Based on user feedback from the original chassis and the Cosmos II, the Cosmos SE shares the same core design that made the enclosure a popular choice among enthusiasts in a decidedly more compact form.
Despite the diet, however, the Cosmos SE still has more than enough room to house even the most component-rich builds. The chassis can support up to eight cooling fans – four of which are included. Two 120mm blue LED fans serve as intakes up front while a 140mm fan in the top and another 120mm in the rear aim to keep operating temperatures under control.
If water cooling is your thing, the Cosmos SE has you covered with support for 120mm, 240mm, 280mm and 360mm radiators. What’s more, 120mm, 280mm and 360mm radiators can be installed all at once.
The Cosmos SE can hold up to eight hard drives or 18 solid state drives via removable HDD/SSD cages, we’re told, while multiple graphics card up to 395mm / 15.5 inches long are also supported. CPU coolers of up to 175mm / 6.9 inches will fit under the side panel as well.
System maintenance should be a breeze as removable dust filters are located in the top, front and bottom of the case. Multiple cable pass-through areas should go a long way in keeping things tidy looking while at the same time improving airflow.
The Cosmos SE will be available early next month - October 9, to be exact - priced at $169.99.
The Cooler Master Cosmos 2 resides at the very top of the chassis and is partially hidden with yet another sliding door. With the panel pulled back we can see a headphone and microphone jack, an eSATA port, two USB 3.0 ports and four USB 2.0 ports. Further back is the advanced control panel which includes a full docket of fan controls, power button, reset button, power and HDD LEDs as well as a button that allows you to control fan LEDs independent of fan speed.
