Inside the Cosmos S
Here is the Cosmos S minus the door. All the extra wires bundled in the middle and a paper cover on the motherboard tray to help with installation of many different types of boards.
This is the inside view of the bottom of the case. On the left is where the PSU is to be installed. Cooler master has added a few nice touches here. One, being the ability to run the PSU with the fan pulling air from outside the case. Second, being that they have taken another step and placed a removable filter in this position as well. To the right there is a place to add an additional 120mm fan for additional cool air to be pushed up towards the warm components.
An inside shot of the rear end of the case shows a couple of features. The water tubing grommets again can be seen at the top. Moving down is the supplied 120mm fan for rear exhaust, and the 7 daughter board slots.
A close up look at the expansion slots for daughter boards. Here you can see Cooler Master again took the extra step in using tool lees thumb screws to support the cards. It has been my experience, that with some lesser cases, the screws don’t always go in square due to the alignment angle using a screw driver.
At the top the end user has a few options to look at. There is the ability to add up to a 3X 120mm radiator to the top, or just fill the slots with fans, making for good case convection, releasing the rising heat. Cooler Master has supplied one 120mm fan to exhaust the heat out of the box.
The front bays are numerous and tool-less. Cooler Master has left the final layout full of options with the room they have allotted. Also, in this shot you can see where Cooler Master ships the box of hardware taped inside of the HDD bay. The HDD bay is cooled with a red LED 120mm fan supplied from Cooler Master
A close up look at the paper instruction sheet that is taped to the motherboard tray has a ton of great information on it. With 3 form factor motherboards and the riser holes lettered, it is hard to make a mistake. Cooler master has also tried to help out with cable management as well, labeling an advisable spot for each wire to pass through to the motherboard.
A close up of the Cosmos S tool-less mounting clips. When the center button is out as seen here, they are in the unlock position, allowing to let the device slide in or out. Once the device is in place and ready to be secured, it just takes a simple push of the button to lock it into place.
