Computex: New Cooler Master Chassis On Display
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
Cooler Master were out in force at this years Computex and they’ve clearly been listening to user feedback because they’ve absolutely nailed what their fans wanted and they’ve got some fantastic looking chassis coming for later this year.
Cosmos SE almost needs no introduction, the Cosmos II is regarded as one of the greats, one of the biggest, best and dare I say most expensive chassis on the market, but that was it’s problem for most, it was too big and too expensive, we wanted all the looks with less of the price tag. Cooler Master have delivered and this is still a big case, still has room for a huge 360mm rad and multiple graphics cards, but it’s a lot smaller and it even has a large window panel available too.
The Elite 120 was one of my favourite chassis, so much so that I used it to build my HTPC. But while it was a great little chassis, there was some room for improvement (isn’t there always?). The front panel has been redesigned and it’s been given a little bit of style nip and tuck. It may be small but it can still pack a full size GPU, PSU, ODD, a few hard drives, plenty of cooling and still fits under your TV nicely.
CM 693 (pictured above) is the next model up from the CM 690 II. A stunning curvy mid tower with support for a top mounted 240mm rad in the top and a 12mm in the back, as well as 3 x 200mm fan thought out. Really like the look of that glossy front panel too, smart.
The Silencio 352 is a sleek Micro ATX case, 3 x 3.5″ low down HDD bays to allow room for extended graphics cards, two 120mm front intake fans, 120mm top and 120mm rear.
Really looking forward to getting a closer look at these cases over the next few months and we hope to have then in for review as soon as they are available. Cooler Master have a really solid looking range here and I think CM fans are going to go crazy for these.
