Naturally, Cooler Master is a company focused on cooling performance in their products. Last October I reviewed their most recent budget case, the CM690, which had all of the right features for the overclocker in all of us with expandability for many fans. Today, we're going to have a look at their latest high-end case, the Cosmos 1000. This case, however, has a slightly different focus than most CM products: silence. Priced at nearly $200 USD, it's sure to be a crowd-pleaser, but can Cooler Master keep true to their name while dampening noise?

Features and Specifications

Superior Silent Environment:
> Soundproof materials applied to build a quiet environment
> Sound barrier design reduces vibration for silent operation

Thermal Solution:
> Dual bottom air intakes to enhance air flow and reduce system noise
> Six aluminum detachable HDD modules with ventilation holes for optimizing cooling performance
> Side removable VGA cooling tunnel to advance thermal airflow.

Tool-free User-friendliness:

> Tool-free design for opening side panel conveniently.

Cable Management:
> Separate HDD modules make it easy to organize cable direction

All of these features look nice on paper, but is the dream of having performance and silence together just wishful thinking? Continue on as we find out…
