Cooler Master CSX Custom Painted Chassis - Limited Edition Red Dragon
A truly impressive case
A duo of companies partner together: Cooler Master provides the case and Smooth Creations "brings the sexy back" so to speak. Both the Cooler Master Stacker 830 and Cosmos designs are available with varying designs. We have already reviewed both of these case designs on PC Perspective (Cosmos review here and Stacker review here) so the designs are nothing new and nothing that we haven't already discussed, critiqued or fawned over. Instead what I'll be showing you today is simply the beauty of one design that CM and Smooth Creations sent over to us.
Our CSX case was the "Red Dragon" model that depicts a red dragon and bright red flames surrounding the entire design.
One of the key selling points for these CSX products is the high quality paint and finish that Cooler Master and Smooth Creations are using. In fact, you will actually get a certificate of authenticity with your name on it verifying that your case has been "personally inspected, numbered, packed and approved as authentic".
All of the CSX cases are truly unique - each is hand air-brushed by different artists at Smooth Creations ensuring that your case is not like any other. Cooler Master will cover paint with a limited lifetime warranty as long as you register the product, and for 5-years should you not want to pass on your information.
An interesting "care and cleaning guide" is included with the case as well - get ready to wax and polish your case! The finish from Smooth Creations is basically like a clear coat finish on a car so those of you familiar with micro-fiber cloth, car polish and elbow grease will feel right at home.
I should reiterate - if you haven't read a review of the Cooler Master Cosmos case you should head to our article on it to get a full feeling of how the chassis functions. The CSX Red Dragon model we looked at here is just that case with a gorgeous paint job.
Overall I was really impressed by the Cooler Master / Smooth Creations collaboration that is the CSX Red Dragon chassis. If you have lots of extra cash on hand or really, really appreciate the idea of having a completely unique artwork for a case, check out the CMCSX.com website for purchasing.
