Cooler Master has relaunched one of their most iconic cases ever: The COSMOS II Ultra Tower Case. The new version is called the COSMOS II 25th Anniversary Edition and it sports a silver finish instead of black like the original. It also now boasts dual tempered glass side-panels for a full see-through view of the internal components. These tempered-glass panels conform with the curved design of the COSMOS II to make it even more special.
The case has blue LED fans which illuminate through the side panels giving users a glowing showpiece system. The new 25th Anniversary edition is made of aluminum with brushed handles, top cover and front cover. It retains much of the original’s charm including hotswappable bays and an advanced control panel. Being an Ultra tower case, the COSMOS II has room for up to 10 expansion card devices. It also supports 3x 5.25″ drive bays, and up to 13x 3.5″ drives. This premium case fetches for a premium price of $349.99.
For existing owners of the COSMOS II who are wondering if the tempered-glass side-panels will be available for purchase, the answer is yes. Cooler Master says that these will be available on Q3 2017, so they can upgrade their existing side-panels.
