Cooler Master Cosmos C700P: the modular full tower tank

Cooler Master has finally launched a case, which could indeed be called modular. After all the Mastercase enclosures which were usually modular mostly on paper, the newewst Cosmos C700P (MCC-C700P-MG5N-S00) full-tower is modular from the very base: the base skeleton is indeed more or less just steel frame with everything else attached to it. So this case could be disassembled down to the smallest parts in case you want to do any modifications, paint it or do anything else with it. Although some parts are aluminium (like the top handles), the sides are made from tempered glass so that brings the total weight of this tank to over 22 kilos. Yep, this is not a mistake: Cooler Master states the weight of the Cosmos C700P (sized at 639 × 306 × 651 mm) to 22.2 kg. I guess this is even more than the famous Chieftec Dragon had, isn’t it?

The price for the Cosmos C700P is also extreme a result of that, more than 8600 CZK or 300 Euros in other countries. Cooler Master promisses some additional components will arrive later, but lets check what you get now in the factory state. The power supply of course mounts to the bottom. Drives can mount into one 5.25″, two 3.5″/2.5″ positions and two native 2.5″ positions. However, as the mounting is modular, you can obtain up to two 5.25″ bays and eight or nine 3.5″ ones. Cooling comes with three 140mm preinstalled fans (two front and one rear). But it is possible to put up to three fans to the front and top positions, plus two to the bottom. The front, bottom and top positions have dust filters.

Cooling is actually interesting itself. There are a few cases which provide different orientation of the motherboard, but the Cosmos C700P is the first one I know about which allows to change it by the user as he wants. You can select from the ordinary, rotated 180 degrees, or 90° (with I/O panel facing up). Unlike others which than put cable mess to the top of the case, here it is closed inside. While it is not the most practical solution, most users connect the cables once and do not touch them for months or years afterwards. So here you connect them, pull all of them out of a single point and do not have anything sticking up from the top. Other toys include that USB 3.1 C nonsense, four normal 3.0 ports and also audio jacks. Besides an embedded fan speed controller, there is RGB backlight too, actually with a control board for backlit keyboard so it all works together in the same phase.
