A great first attempt by Cougar

Maleka K., Newegg
9 January 2015
  • Summary: Having purchased several cougar turbine fans for many different builds, i thought I'd give the case a go to see how the workmanship measured up to established case manufacturers.
  • Pros: Full tower size with a mid tower look (i.e. not overbearing or ridiculous). Lots of routing options inside. Plenty of removable fan filters to fight the war on dust. Full mesh front for maximal airflow. Front panel USB3. Built-in fan control separated into 2 groups. 7 fan slots (the more you give...
  • Cons: (Mostly) everything is laid out well, but it's all a little flimsy. The drive trays are plastic (come on). The sides of my case are warped when not attached. Not a problem since they're attached, but still feels like they should be solid and square. Top 5.25" bay is unusable for optical drives be...

Good case overall

Jeff B., Newegg
5 December 2014
  • Summary: Overall a freaking cool case for a decent price. Solid construction and plenty of room.
  • Pros: *Big case, plenty of room for even the biggest GPUs. *Cable management space behind the mobo tray is nice *German made, very well constructed. *Looks pretty sick *Tool-less design *Bottom mounted PSU *Hot swappable SATA drive on top of case *Tons of USB including USB 3.0
  • Cons: *Tool-less bay hardware is kinda flimsy, drives move around somewhat. Ended up using screws anyway. *Top 5.25" bay is basically unuseable due to FPANEL wires *FPANEL fan control didn't work at all, had to connect fans to the MOBO *Bottom fan slot wasn't thought out very well. All PSUs have a gian...

  • Pros: * Nice looking * Big case to fit all the components you want
  • Cons: * If you want to use the top 5.25 bay, it will take a lot, I have to split all the cables coming from the top of the case in half and zip tie them to the roof, even with that there was almost no clearance because of the hard drive dock on the top of the case, I was able to fit my DVD drive in the...

Sexy Case

Christopher P., Newegg
26 November 2013
  • Summary: I would use this case for extreme liquid cooling, but that's just me.
  • Pros: Case is gorgeous, has lots of slots for hard drives and optical drives, and has plenty of room for a good gaming case. The 4-way fan controller is nice, not to mention the slot for external drives to be straight connected to the computer. I got it for a very good price and I recommend it.
  • Cons: Not as large as some other full tower cases, I think. An H100 liquid cooler will fit, but anything larger than that won't. But that's it really.

Awesome case!

Benjamin B., Newegg
13 November 2013
  • Pros: This a very sturdy case with plenty of drive bays and room! Ample fan ports and screens to prevent dust from entering. Expansion slot blanks are extremely durable, not the cheap aluminum ones that bend.
  • Cons: Missing two holes for an ATX motherboard but enough to hold the board in place securely. Couldn't get the fan controls to adjust the speed, not sure why.

Lots of Room

Joseph C., Newegg
19 April 2013
  • Pros: Nice case, well constructed, room for expansion of peripherals.
  • Cons: Front audio and USB on top of unit, same with external drive socket. Dilemma is if you have a desk, the top connections are a problem. Flexibility of built in cables is limited, puts pressure on MB USB Connection.

Mixed Feelings

Kevin C., Newegg
26 March 2013
  • Summary: I don't think I could go as far to say this is a bad case. It looks great. It has great features and quality for the money. It just has some flaws. Probably my biggest issues are: #1 5.25" tool-less is terrible #2 The fans on the top are too close to the motherboard In all honesty I would probably...
  • Pros: The case looks great. USB 3.0 with the internal connecter (sadly my 600T corsair cases do not have this) My girlfriend loves it (it is her case and she picked it out) Plenty of spots for 120mm fans (6 or 5+1 140mm) Filters nearly everywhere. A lot of features for the money. Most of the fan spots ...
  • Cons: OK... here we go. Cable management: The mass of cables that comes in the case is insane. It was very difficult to clean up the cables. The back panel does allow a good bit of space but it lacks areas to zip-tie or velcro strap cables down. Features: The fan controller works okay. The Tool-Less de...

Good Case

Barry B., Newegg
18 February 2013
  • Summary: This case had everything I was looking for and more. A solid 4/5 eggs ( One egg off due to the fragile nature of the plastic components).
  • Pros: This case has many features in which I was looking for: - SATA hot swap bay - Can house many fans - No screw, no tools Hard Drive and ODD bays - Fan control - USB 3 ports - Hard Drive bays face outward rather than inward - Some motherboard mounting holes are preconstructed - Has markings to infor...
  • Cons: This case has many plastic components, specifically the top and front platings which are very fragile. I had to RMA the first case I ordered as these two components were severly damaged (Newegg was awesome and got me a new case within the week).

Clay V., Newegg
12 February 2013
  • Pros: great case
  • Cons: If you have a 2.5" bay ether buy some white paint and sand paper or get a new case cause the bay cover is uglyy does not match, its not even mesh, its plain black and a weird texture. luckily i'm very good at painting :)
