Cooler Master has released the second version of their COSMOS case, which has grown so much larger in all dimensions that Cooler Master has decided to call it an Ultra tower.  The size has also increased the air capabilities of the case with larger and more numerous fans as well as providing space and tools for a bottom mounted reservoir.  They also focused on cable management features which makes sense when there are 13 drive bays in total.  The size of this case will accept XL-ATX motherboards, multiple GPUs of up to 15.1" and even extra long PSUs.  The only thing that Legit Reviews felt was lacking with the case were casters to move the 50lb monster.

For more visually focused individuals you can catch a video of Ryan reviewing the Corsair Carbide 500R and 400R cases.

"At first glance the COSMOS II looks very similar to the original case as it has the top and bottom rails still, but beyond that it is very different. For one thing it is bigger in all dimensions with the original Cosmos at 10.47"(W) x 23.54"(H) x 24.72" (D) but the new and improved Cosmos II Ultra Tower stands a whopping 13.5"(W) x 27.7"(H) x 26.1"(D). This is larger than most cases classified as a Full Tower which is why Cooler Master came up with the Ultra Tower category..."
