In light of the Cosmos SE’s price category, we chose a high-end gaming system for our benchmarks, based on Intel's LGA 1150 processor interface. We had to remove one of the drive bays from Cooler Master's case to fit our reference HIS Radeon HD 7970. Since this chassis doesn't include a fan controller, we decided to test it using factory settings. Moreover, our Thermalright True Spirit 140(BW) CPU cooler should be in line with the 1200 RPM stock case fans when it comes to noise.
