Pass the Windolene!Over on Cooler Master's stand, the company is displaying what it regards as the chassis of the show, the Cosmos S, about which many reviews (including our own) were completed just before the start of CeBIT 2008.
With a few on show, it would have been easy to miss the fact that Cooler Master has already made changes from the pre-production models that did the rounds of the reviews-circuit.
Here you can see that a side window has replaced the logo-ed mesh area. Some may say that this is hardly earth-shattering but, from our ears-on experience, it's a good bit more significant than it might at first seem.
One of the big issues we had with the chassis during our testing was the noise. It was reminiscent of a a wind-tunnel, with matters not helped by the poor design of fan-equipped plastic side panel. Well, with that arrangement gone, noise levels should improve dramatically.
But there's no word yet whether Cooler Master will ship this panel within a pre-build chassis or if it will only be available as an optional extra - which would be a crying shame. News on that as and when we get it.
