5 out of 5 eggsAwsome case

This review is from: COUGAR Evolution Black SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Dual 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans, USB 3.0 x 2, USB 2.0 x 2

Pros: This case is huge, I have 3 more empty bays in front to fill with goodies!
If you want a case that you can install add-ons this is it .There is so much room
you do not have too worry about over heating.( H2O cooling space is available if needed )
Build your command center ....HAVE FUN !

Cons: OK -The only thing that I added was a USB 3.0- 4-Port Internal Hub, 5.25" Bay Front Panel Mounting. The top 3.0 USB are nice but
kind of in the way & only 2 of them. The rear 3.0 ports are just too hard to get too. ( But do not worry I still have room to park my car in this case. )

Other Thoughts: If you want too do your own build this is the case to start with.It will last for years too come
The top on/off button very easy to get too. The fans are very quite. And there is room for more.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case!

This review is from: COUGAR Evolution Black SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Dual 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans, USB 3.0 x 2, USB 2.0 x 2

Pros: -Top USB ports
-Quick-remove hard drive bays
-Sturdy build
-See-through case
-Top hard drive bay, outside of the case!
-Good power button (In my opinion, it feels nice to press.)

Cons: -Fan control broke
-Lights on top broke (power button, fan select buttons) Hard drive lights still work though

Other Thoughts: I've really enjoyed this case. It transports well and is relatively light. It is very easy to swap parts out, there is a ton of room to work with and the quick-remove hard drive bays are great. The only problem I had was the fan control buttons on the top stopped working. It's sturdy, and easy to tinker with.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case But Not For Corsair H100i

This review is from: COUGAR Evolution Black SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Dual 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans, USB 3.0 x 2, USB 2.0 x 2

Pros: - Top USB, and Audio Ports
- Top case power button
- Has a hot-swappable drive bay on top
- Has tons of room for multiple fan configurations
- Relatively tool-less design

Cons: No cons just a warning to those looking for a full tower/closed water-cooling system configuration (check other thoughts)-->

Other Thoughts: I knew it had space for a radiator in my old tower, and I did not fully take the dimensions to account for it in actuality. This will NOT fit the radiator completely (only a few screws will go in but enough to make it snug), and there will be no space for those fans you need to attach to it as the board WILL be right near them, and you'll only be able to at least attach one since the back-side ports will be hindering it's placement. If you're going to get this configuration, PLEASE make sure you know there will be enough room... or heck, bite the bullet and get one of their cases designed for the configuration.

3 out of 5 eggsFine... for base install

This review is from: COUGAR Evolution Black SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Dual 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans, USB 3.0 x 2, USB 2.0 x 2

Pros: It's black and has nifty connections up top.

Cons: Nicked myself installing the motherboard back plate
5.25 slots all have individual high adjusters prohibiting the use of my Icy Dock FatCage (MB155SP-B). I intended to install 5x hot swaps in addition to the 4x internal 3.5" drives provided. Who NEEDS six 5.25 devices in 2015+? This was just not thought through. This case should easily be able to accommodate two of these FatCage adapters for a total of 14 drives.

Other Thoughts: Someone that wants an ultimately flexible case will not want all those tabs that align the 5.25 devices at one unit depth. The FatCage is three units high and cannot fit because of this limitation. This is not a cost increase in the product, either.

4 out of 5 eggsA great first attempt by Cougar

This review is from: COUGAR Evolution Black SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Dual 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans, USB 3.0 x 2, USB 2.0 x 2

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 me, the more fans I will install... within reason)! The self-hiding SATA dock on top is great for recoveries and drive wipes. Spacious interior. Cougar design aesthetics.

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 because of the many cables going to the front panel array. You could fit shorter equipment up there though.

Other Thoughts: 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.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case overall

This review is from: COUGAR Evolution Black SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Dual 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans, USB 3.0 x 2, USB 2.0 x 2

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 giant bundle of thick cables which will sit right where that fan is supposed to mount. A simple cage would have solved the problem of the wires getting into your blades.

Other Thoughts: Overall a freaking cool case for a decent price. Solid construction and plenty of room.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case

This review is from: COUGAR Evolution Black SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Dual 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans, USB 3.0 x 2, USB 2.0 x 2

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.

4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: COUGAR Evolution Black SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Dual 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans, USB 3.0 x 2, USB 2.0 x 2

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 top bay but it is way too tight because of pressing against the hard drive bay. Took more effort than any sane person should really put into trying to use just one 5.25 bay.

* Plastic clip broke on front air filter on first try to remove it. It didn't really bother me since I planned to remove all the air filters to increase air flow, but for those that may want to use them know that the plastic for the filters is flimsy so be careful not to break the clips.

* I would of liked more loops through out the case for use with zip ties for cable management

* The case is meant to have upward air flow, where there are two fans on the top and one on the bottom with the placement of the power supply that means having a bunch of power cables running over the bottom fan.

* The metal shelves in the 5.25 bay (the metal lip that the 5.25 device sits on) is wider than most cases I have dealt with, this won't affect 99% of people buying the case unless you're getting something that takes up more than one 5.25 bay, like a multi-hard drive bay. I had to cut some of the metal off the 5.25 shelf to fit a dual 5.25 bay component.

Pros: good case fits all that I need it to on hardware had the extra usb 3 ports i needed
