A Cooler Master Cosmos PURE!?

Do you know that Cooler Master release new case (^_^).
But, This case shape as like as Cosmos 1000, it just like repackaging of Cosmos before.

At Cooler Master site said that "An all-black finish and precision engineering on both interior and exterior that gives this edition COSMOS stylish appeal". This is specs of this case:

 There are few good things of this case,


  • Removable VGA cooling tunnel for controlled airflow
  • Precision craftsmanship with all-black interior and exterior
  • Sound proof insulation design for silent operation
  • Tool-free buttons for easy maintenance of 5.25" drive devices
  • Removable aluminum HDD racks for quick swapping for drives
  • Cable management system for improved cable routing
  • Dual bottom air intake to enhance airflow and reduce system noise


          -  Heavyweight computer case (almost all steel)
          -  Lacks CPU cooler opening on motherboard tray
          -  Limited Edition status demands a high price tag
          -  Cable management is limited despite large ports
          -  Negative pressure may decrease exhausting performance on some video cards

    The Cooler Master Cosmos Black Label should be fairly popular among enthusiasts, especially considering the long run of popularity the RC-1000 and Cosmos-S have had. Antec has long since been an advocate of all things black, which has done them well as the most popular case manufacturer of 2007. Finishing out 2008 is a different story, as the Black Label Limited Edition kit reveals how products don't need to be fresh inventions but merely perfected re-inventions.

    AMD And SLI Rise Again?

    Generally, platform reviews accompany new processors. But in the case of AMD’s 990FX chipset, there’s both good and bad news.

    The good news is that AMD still has a fantastic compatibility story. So, 990FX supports today’s Socket AM3 processors and the upcoming AM3+ CPUs based on the Bulldozer microarchitecture.

    The bad news is that those Bulldozer-based chips are still not ready. Processors based on the B0 stepping are in the hands of motherboard manufacturers. But they’re all telling me that performance is nowhere near what they were expecting, and it’ll take another stepping to fix them.

    According to AMD, it’s incrementing the platform name to clarify compatibility with Bulldozer-based processors. When you see a board that centers on 990FX, the company wants you to know that its upcoming AM3+ CPUs are drop-in-compatible (again, 990FX-based boards will also take existing AM3 chips).

    More pertinent than any AM3+ discussion, at least today, is the addition of SLI support on 990FX boards. AMD came up with a way to show its customers how to get the most out of an upcoming processor without complicating the upgrade process. Enthusiasts who actually can be troubled to do their homework know that 890FX/990FX and AM3/AM3+ share mechanical compatibility, though it’ll take 990FX and AM3+ to exploit Zambezi’s power/frequency management features. No doubt 800-series boards will start becoming scarcer as the industry gears up to support AM3+.

    As we all wait to see what the company’s torch-bearing architecture can do, motherboard manufacturers are throwing us a little bone by licensing Nvidia’s SLI technology for use on 990FX-based platforms. Is the capability worth ditching your old 890FX board and buying an upgrade?

    That depends on how loyal you are to Nvidia. Now that AMD’s CrossFire performance is much-improved, there’s no real reason to shy away from multi-card configs from either vendor unless your trepidation comes from multi-card configs themselves.

    Introducing the IN-WIN BUC Case

    When building a new machine, it's often easy to pass by certain manufacturers in favor of old standbys like Antec, Cooler Master, SilverStone, or Thermaltake. Whenever another company becomes a contender it's usually because they made a big splash at the top of the market and let the halo effect strike the way Corsair did. However, there's great engineering going on with smaller firms, and in the case of IN-WIN and their new BUC enclosure, you'd be surprised at just how much actual value can be crammed into what seems at first glance like a mid-range enclosure. If you're the type to tinker religiously with your desktop, the BUC may just be the case for you.

    While a hundred bills is more than entry level cases tend to go for, it's also a world away from the more expensive enthusiast cases on the market. What's impressive is that in many ways IN-WIN has given those cases a run for their money.

    The IN-WIN BUC is a tremendously flexible piece of kit, full of features without seeming to be overrun by them. The hotswap bay is a little problematic with some drives, but it's also there on a $100 case, and it does work. Likewise, there's USB 3.0 connectivity, a drive/key tray on the top of the case, and a largely toolless assembly. The plastic/steel construction can feel on the chintzy side, but it also keeps the case comparatively light. Every time I've needed to work on my tower when it was in the Antec P182 and now the Corsair 600T.

    Well, if you need a workhorse case that's feature rich, relatively easy to work in/with, and you don't have a lot of bread to spend on it, the BUC is an excellent choice
