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.

10 Expansion Slots.
Supports 360 / 240 mm water cooling radiators.

Great build quality.
Loads of cooling options and hard drive trays.
Heavy duty carrying handles.
Can hold up to 112 HDDs/SSDs.
Pair of lockable XDock 3.5" Hot Swap bays.
Lot's of front panel wiring to mess with.
Lower drive cages make for tight PSU cable routing.
Fitment of larger top mounted radiators could cause component installation issues.
So very many fan control wires.
Toolless lock cannot be used on half length 5.25 inch devices (requires screws for mounting)
Price puts it out of range for many people.
Heavy 22 kg.
Some aspects not deserving of the price tag too much plastic here and there.
