In 2004, Cooler Master released its Stacker STC-T01, considered a legend and pioneer of case design. Its unprecedented 11 drive bays, dual power supply mounts, build quality, and simple but elegant design gave users a level of flexibility and working space, which destroyed copycats down the road. Among these copycats were the Raidmax Katana, Xion Stacker, and Thermaltake Armor; the Armor was the most successful of them. However, it still lagged behind the original Stacker in almost all aspects. But this is all ancient history. Three years later, Cooler Master has unveiled its new flagship chassis, the Cooler Master Cosmos 1000. You would expect it to be just another no holds barred ultimate performance chassis, but Cooler Master defines this case as "Performance Meets Silence." It seems like Cooler Master has upped the ante this time...


· 266 x 598 x 628 mm
· 16.9 kg weight
· Steel chassis
· Supports ATX and Extended ATX
· 5 x 5.25" drive bays
· 6 x 3.5" drive bays (1 exposed)
· USB 2.0, Audio, eSATA, and IEEE-1394 on I/O Panel
· 1 x 120mm fan
· 1 x HDD fan
· 7 expansion slots

· Superior Silent Environment
· Thermal Solution
· Tool-free User-friendliness
· Cable Management


Firstly, the build quality of the Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 is simply superb. Overall, it is a solid build and Cooler Master's attention to detail left us no room to criticize, from the fan vents to the drive mounting system to the padded power supply mount. In any case, the most logical way to present this is from the outside to the inside, just as you would see things if you were installing a system into the case. The packaging on this case is superb. Everything is well protected and it would be difficult for the shipper to damage the case; although that doesn't mean they can't lose it during shipment. The exterior of the case is covered by a protective plastic film, as many high-end cases are these days. This is further protection from any damage or scratches that may happen during shipment.
