Black is the best color for a case in my opinion. Cooler Master's Black Label Limited Edition Cosmos case has a shiny mirror finish to it. This can be a magnet for fingerprints, but it really shows off the theme they are trying to put forward with this package. There are handles on the top and bottom of the case for easy carrying around a LAN party.

The front door opens from the left to the right. Behind the door are five 5.25" drive bays that are covered by a mesh. The top drive bay has a 3.5" adapter for the Floppy disk Drive. Above the door is the Cosmos logo. Below 5.25" drive bays is the Cooler Master logo. The top of the case is an interesting design with flaps that cover two 120mm fans. To remove the top simply unscrew the rear screw and lift the flap. Underneath the top are the fans that can be removed.

The front panel IO on the case is on top of the case, above the Cosmos logo. Cooler Master went the extra mile with the IO including 4 USB 2.0 ports, a Firewire port, an external SATA port, the FP audio jack and Mic jack. Also on the top of the case is the Power and Reset buttons and a HDD and Power activity light. Everything is aligned in one neat area, Cooler Master really put a lot of thought into the design of their case and it shows here.

The side panel has a window, which is lighter colored than the rest of the case, but darker than the clear side panels on most cases. This fits well into Cooler Master's theme for this case. The rear of the case has two latches for unlatching both of the side doors. There are seven positions for PCI cards, with a 120mm fan on the rear above the Rear IO area. There are two water-cooling holes on the rear above the 120mm fan.
