Cooler Master Cosmos SE ATX Tower Case

Cooler Master Cosmos SECooler Master is a name synonymous with high end, high performance PC peripherals. Not long ago the Cooler Master Cosmos was released and it was a smash it. However, not everyone has the room for a full tower case. Enter the Cooler Master Cosmos SE. The Cosmos SE is the full size Cosmos’ little brother. The Cosmos SE is packs a massive amount of features into a small package.
The case is modded from the factory, but there is so much more to be done. Cooler Master has been a major supporter of the modding community in recent years and the Cosmos SE offers a great stopping point for some while it is a great starting point for others who would like to take the modding further.
