Pros: Great case. I bought it specifically for Litecoin Mining and there are tons of fan options. I especially love the fact that you can remove the metal fan grills to improve airflow, on both the front of the case and top. Seriously an amazing case, and you should definitely consider if you are looking for 8 PCI Express Slots and a tall case.
Cons: Really none. It is a little difficult to take of the top cover off if both top fans are installed, but you can unscrew the fans through the grills in you take out the metal grates off.
Summary: over all an excellent case and is perfectly designed for air flow. cant be beat as it will accept any motherboard and handle a triple or quad gpu setup no problem
Pros: excellent case with plenty of space. fan controller works great!!!! love this case and prefer it over any other!!!!
Cons: space on backside of motherboard mounting plate is lacking for cable management. needs to be a little more accommodating. the fan to be used in 5.25" drive bay area is great unless using a beefy liquid cooling unit that uses the 5.25" drive bay to house pump, radiator, fan and reserve tank
Summary: Like the Wire cut outs , keeps the wiring away from the front of the mb as much as possible. I took my time building this rig, from sheer joy.
Pros: Love the look, the Filters on Slide outs are brilliant. Whats the #1 computer killer? Virus? no, DUST. These make it easy to clean and keep more dust OUT. Also like the Hd slot outs, so many times having to remove a mb to get to the HD, not with this unit! Like the Top buttons, and usb connections (and an sata PORT on the top too! I am going to get another one. Like the sidefan connector ...idea.
Cons: Side fan (huge!) turns a bit slow, if at all. Maybe the connection idea isnt quite right. (ill have to mess with that a bit)
Summary: Great for a budget full size ATX case - don't get if you need a lot of space for multiple GPU's or water cooling.
Pros: Spacious, well ventilated, room for more fans, fan controls. SATA top mount USB ports Good quality construction.
Cons: Large graphics cards (Windforce or many of the R9 series) are a little cramped in here. The one little side panel seems a little cheap, and not sure exactly what I was supposed to use to attach it permanently as none of the provided screws fit? Sits there nicely on its own however.
Summary: This is the easiest build I've ever done and it's thanks to this case. It's spacious and smartly organized. I like cougar as a brand but if this case was trash that opinion would have changed. I'm glad it isn!
Pros: Very spacious case VERY smart cable management layout Cool, useful features (The top has an SATA port for quick transfers) Looks cool in both design and color choices A lot of helpful things for expansion and additions of fans Screwless design is awesome and works very well.
Cons: The other reviewer said that the top fan expansion things block the mobo. This is true, but they are easily removed. Another reviewer said that the cords coming down from the top block use of the top expansion slot on the front. This is true but it doesnt bother me. I just used the third slot. I don't care for the look of the power button. Kinda looks cheap. This hardly bothers me though.
Summary: Im very satisfied with my case,and the Newegg Representative that helped me.
Pros: The Cougar Evolution is a great case, -The size is in between a mid and full size tower with enough room left with an ATX MoBo ,10" graphics Card and all other components that are needed. -It has Quiet fans -Cable management holes are an amazing feature to this case, it makes the build look clean. overall its a good case for a nice build
Cons: -The case was advertised with orange fans i received black fans. same quality fans just different color. -top bay is very tight to fit a optical drive due to wires of the top controls just be careful ( 2" in and the wires are in the way)
