Cooler Master Cosmos C700M Review 

Conclusion 

Just like all other Cooler Master Cosmos series cases, the C700M has released with an extremely high price tag, costing £414.99 (inc. VAT) in the UK. This will be more than enough to case most of our readers to click away, as we don't blame them, £400 is a lot of money. 

Fans of the Cosmos series will know that the C700M costs this much for a reason, offering a level of versatility and moddability that is unmatched by almost everything else in the modern case market. The Cosmos C700M, and its little brother the C700P, are designed for PC builders who love to tinker and refuse to accept a PC that isn't uniquely theirs. 

With most cases, there is little to differentiate your system from other users of the same enclosure. With the C700M, no two users will have the same configuration, assuming that buyers take personalisation in any way seriously. Personalisation sits at the core of PC building, allowing hardware enthusiasts to create beautiful and unique machines. Will you give your case or hardware a custom paint job? Develop a badass water cooling setup? Modify your chassis to offer a unique feature or overclock your components to squeeze out every drop of performance you can? The possibilities are endless when you build your own PC.  

Once again, Cooler Master has listened to fan feedback and has implemented several noteworthy design changes over the C700P, shipping the case with every conceivable accessory that end-users could ever need while offering a tempered glass side panel with a lighter tint, increasing the visibility of components inside the chassis. This is an incredibly useful design change for users of systems that don't include large amounts of internal lighting. 

Visitors to the realms of water cooling will no doubt find what they are looking for with the C700M, which ships with out of the box support for dual 360/420mm radiators (top and front) and a 240mm radiator at the case of the case. This will be more than enough for any modern system, even if you are using an overclocked AMD Threadripper or Intel Core i9 processor and multiple high-end graphics cards.  

With the C700M, Cooler Master has raised the bar in terms of build quality, offering a curved tempered glass side panel, strong aluminium handles for easy transport (assuming you can lift the sheer mass of this chassis and the components therein) and integrated ARGB lighting that highlights the otherwise monochromatic design of the enclosure. These ARGB lights can also be integrated with your systems internal RGB lighting setup to create a unique lighting experience.

While this C700M is easily one of the most expensive on the market, it is clear to see that this high cost has resulted in some next-level case design from Cooler Master, offering very little to complain about outside of pricing. 

The Cooler Master C700M is a sandbox of PC building options, leaving us excited at the prospect of building with this case again. Not many cases leave us with this level of excitement, sending our minds ablaze with new ideas and modding opportunities. The Cooler Master C700M is no doubt deserving of OC3D's Enthusiast Grade award, though it is a shame that such a spectacular case is beyond the financial reach of most PC builders. 

- Endnotes -  Starting today, October 2nd, the Cooler Master C700M will be available in the UK exclusively with PC Specialist systems until the end of 2018. The C700M will release in January 2019 for £414.99 (inc VAT) as a standalone chassis at other retailers.

No you're not, if I was still into water and big cases I'd seriously consider this but these days I'm more into smaller more manageable casesQuote

I wonder if you could fit two big rads at once, or will the end tanks bump heads, like they seem to do in EVERY case that offers a top and front rad mount.Quote
