Cooler Master celebrates its birthday with Cosmos II

Thermal solutions provider, Cooler Master has celebrated its 20th anniversary with the addition of the Cosmos II Ultra Tower to its chassis portfolio.

Built for water cooling efficiency, the Cosmos II has support for a 360mm radiator in the top, and a 240mm radiator in its side if the bottom cage is removed (dependent on the radiator manufacturer). Additionally, it also provides space for a 120mm large single or 140mm all-in-one unit on the rear exhaust fan port.

It is also a versatile chassis, capable of holding up to 13 HDDs or SSDs, with two X-docks, five mid-cage slots, and 6 bottom cage slots.

Its 10+1 expansion slots allow users to install systems that include up to four-way SLI and Crossfire builds, and the motherboard tray accommodates up to a XL-ATX motherboard.

For cable management, the Cosmos II is designed with grommets on the cable management holes and with numerous cable tie zones. Its locking mechanics, trays, and thumb screws can be used for tool-free hardware mounting, and front panel connections and controls allow for quick access to fan speed and case LEDs, as well as USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, and audio connections.

The product’s luxury supercar-inspired exterior is built with aluminium, steal, and mesh for strength and stability. It maintains the trademark Cosmos profile with reinforced aluminium rails, and has side panels which open with the push of a button.

The Cosmos II is available for $369.

Canon takes it to the mobile worker

Imaging brand Canon has expanded its uniFlow print, copying, and scanning platform to support mobile devices.

Version 5.1 of the imaging solution supports all Internet-enabled mobile devices, eliminating the need for users to log into a networked PC, and allowing jobs to be printed across a range of devices from desktop printers to multi-function devices.

The platform is built around three business models:

  • Internal, departmental, and SMB usage: users have an account and can print securely from mobile devices.
  • Ad hoc usage: customers submit a file to a printer and pay for each job.
  • Mobile printing as a service: for example, in an airport lounge where it is offered as a complementary service to frequent flyers.

Canon Australia group manager of business marketing, Luke Maddison, said, “Recent research found that over half of workers using smartphones can’t print from their device, but want to.”

“There have been concerns with managing a ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) strategy, particularly around security and integration,” he added.

To counter the issue, uniFlow 5.1 comes equipped with cost management and measurement features, which offer administrators an overview of all printing activity as to measure and track users to identify misuses.
