Earlier this year Cooler Master carefully blew new life into their Cosmos series with the release of the special 25th Anniversary Edition of the Cosmos II. The result was an elegant case, that unfortunately was somewhat dated due to its old roots. However, some time ago Cooler Master released the completely new Cosmos C700P: a high-end case that, although it is clearly related to its illustrious predecessors, it is entirely up-to-date.
The new C700P is immediately recognizable as a Cosmos case on the outside. The long tube-shaped feet at the bottom, and handles on the top might have been replaced by flat aluminium feet and grips, but the family characteristics are unmistakable.
The C700P is a big case that offers a lot of room for hard disks, SSDs, fans and water cooling. Aside from that the case offers a lot of flexibility in regard to the motherboard orientation. In order to be completely up-to-date an RGB-controller and RGB led lighting had to be included as well. With that, the new Cosmos C700P is entirely targeted towards the demanding users that are also prepared to spend a lot of money on a high-end case - like its predecessors. If you want to have this case you should be prepared to do so, because the Cosmos C700P has an MSRP of 266 pounds / 299 euros.
In this review we compare the Cosmos C700P with other big ATX cases in the price range of 89 pounds / 100 euros and up. The graph below shows that the Cosmos C700P - with its aluminium protrusions factored in - is one of the bigger cases, even in this segment. That said, it is still not as gigantic as the Cosmos II.
