Cougar, a leading German PC case and power supply brand, has launched its latest high-end PC gaming case, the Cougar Challenger. The Challenger mid-tower case targets gamers who demand the freedom to upgrade, superior airflow, and optimized ventilation. Cougar’s black-and-orange color combination paired with the large metal-mesh front bezel gives the case an aggressive yet stylish appearance. But the ultimate design highlight is to be found right on the top of the case: to power up your computer, you first have to lift a cover lid in the same way that a pilot unlocks the missile button to fire.
Play as long as you want
To play the most advanced games, the Cougar Challenger offers sufficient space for powerful graphics cards of up to 410 mm in length. This is achieved with a unique triple-mode drive cage concept. In standard mode, there is 300 mm of space. With the use of a special HDD track mechanism, you can relocate the drive cage to gain another 30 mm, and when it is entirely removed, you get the maximum space of 410 mm.
Ventilation meets convenience
It’s already a given that Cougar provides vented PCIe slots at the back of the case and advanced ventilation options on the front bezel. But now the German brand goes one step further by adding innovative air filters on the bottom PSU cover and side panel to prevent dust from entering the inside and piling up there. Cougar has made things even more effective and convenient since these filters are now attached to the outside with a magnetic mechanism, allowing for easiest assembly and disassembly. This way it is incredibly easy to take the dust filters off at any given time, without the need to open the case, and simply clean them with a water standpipe for a minute, dry them, and then reattach them. Your ventilation has then been re-optimized within minutes without much effort at all. A large 20 cm intake LED-fan in the front and a 12 cm rear Turbine exhaust fan come pre-installed, thus offering excellent ventilation right out of the box.
Easy and Tidy Upgrade
Since PC enthusiast and gamers are constantly working on improving and upgrading their systems, it is of utmost importance to always have easy and clean access to the entire system. Therefore, the Cougar Challenger comes with a huge cutout on the motherboard backplate, allowing for spacious room to install or exchange CPU coolers. In addition, the newly designed cable management keeps cables away from the setup and organizes them in a way so users can easily manage and then change them if needed. As a matter of course, this also is precondition for the optimized ventilation characteristics of the overall setup.
Ready for the real liquid cooling
Since liquid cooling is becoming more popular again these days, Cougar is taking these needs fully into account, giving users the thumbs up for highly advanced cooling solutions. A total of three liquid cooling hose holes on the rear panel allow for maximum accessibility. By default, Cougar implements rubber protection of these holes, so users don’t need to worry about potentially sharp edges cutting into the hoses due to careless handling.
