It's a more compact version of the Cosmos and Cosmos II
The busy bodies over at Cooler Master launched a new computer case under a familiar name. It's the Cosmos SE, and like its predecessors (Cosmos and Cosmos II), the design is supposedly inspired by sports cars, only this version is more aggressive, nimble, and compact. Built in part for the road, it has curved aluminum handles and a sleek outer exterior.
Hide your NUC because if you bring home an Obsidian Series 750D chassis, it may just eat your mini PC for breakfast. Corsair's newest full-tower enclosure isn't quite as big as its massive 900D, but the company says you'll still find ample room for high performance components and sophisticated cooling. The 750D is also supposed to make complex builds a bit easier thanks to tool-free side panels and drive bays, cable routing grommets and mount points, rear CPU access on the motherboard, and alignment pegs, to name a few of its features.
Size matters, which is precisely why Corsair went small with its latest computer case.
It's not the size of your computer case that matters, but how you use it, right? Well, not exactly. If you're building a small form factor system and don't want to waste a ton of space, size is most certainly a factor, followed closely by features. Corsair hopes to impress on both fronts with its new Obsidian Series 350D case. Like its larger Obsidian brothers, the 350D is made from black, brushed aluminum and has an optional side window, but is intended for micro ATX and mini ITX motherboards, the two sizes it supports.
Lian Li has been churning out brushed aluminum computer cases for nearly three decades now, occasionally coming out with funky designs like the PC-777 Memorial Edition. The case maker's latest enclosures don't take any major aesthetic risks like that one did, and instead Lian Li's new PC-A75X and PC-A76X stick to what made the company famous in the first place, which is a simply stated, full tower, brushed aluminum design.
There was a time when hulking computer towers were all the rage, and for some, they still are. By and large, however, the general shift in computing has been towards smaller, space saving form factors. Hoping to capitalize on that trend is Cooler Master, which recently announced its Elite 120 Advanced chassis pitched as "a modern solution for the space conscious" builder.
Apparently owning a smartphone or tablet means you're predisposed to favoring ultra-compact computer cases over mid-towers or those hulking full-tower hunks of aluminum and steel. Just ask Lian Li, which today introduced a trio of pint-sized brushed aluminum cases "for smartphone and tablet" wielding folk looking to build "personal data storage hubs for all your mobile devices." Interesting pitch, no?
