5 out of 5 eggsVery good case for the money

Pros: Thin
Two front USB 3.0 ports
Plenty of fan mounting locations

Cons: Drive quick-connectors are kinda flimsy
No reset switch

Other Thoughts: This is a great case if you are looking for a thin and compact ATX mid tower. It has plenty of room for case fans, two 120mm on top, two 120 mm in front and one already mounted on the back. My only issue is that if you have any of the 3.5" bays filled, this eliminates the ability for one of the front fans to be mounted. Other than that gripe this is a great case for the price.

3 out of 5 eggsNot the greatest case, but definitely not the worse.

Pros: Clean case. not too bad looking, affordable.

Cons: bought this case noticing that it featured dual fan ports on the top. when i got it i started installing things and had a horrible time getting things to fit.. my water cooler still doesnt fit right, radiator was able to mount but the fans are stuck on the exterior of the case.

extremely bland. nothing fancy about this case, i added some blue led's to mine to try and spruce it up some.. still lame.. but oh well.

no transparent side panel.

VERY cheep metal.

4 out of 5 eggsYou Get What You Pay For

Pros: 1. Plenty of HDD slots
2. Plenty of fan slots
3. Nice area in the back to route wiring
4. Nice sturdy wiring for front ports.

Cons: 1. Top fans intrude down onto the motherboard area.For another 1" of height this would have been a nonissue; instead it left me trying to figure out how to get fans and motherboard (with aftermarket cpu cooler) both in.

2. Only 2 "screwless" HDD mounts. What's the point of 6 bays if you only have 2 screwless? In addition I haven't managed to find a place to buy more.

3. HDD "screwless" really isn't screwless. If you need to be sure it's secure, you have to add screws from the back. The screwless only supports the front.

4. Same problem with 5.25" external bays. 3 bays, 2 mounts. Can they just not count, maybe? lol

5. Side panel (with thumb screws) is slightly off center - the screw holes don't line up quite right with the case. This is even with nothing IN the case, so it wasn't a matter of me having stuffed the case too full.

Other Thoughts: Although it's nice to have that cutout area in the back, it's not quite wide enough if you plan on using more than one HDD slot. Each HDD means extra wiring that needs to be routed out of the way of air flow...and after the PSU/MB/front panel connections are routed you just run out of room. I ended up not installing a bottom fan so I could route wires down into that area and it wouldn't block TOO much air flow...

For an extra 1" height and 1/2" width, this case would be a lot easier to build into. For a little more attention to detail(thumb screws) when the case was manufactured, I wouldn't have decided that I wouldn't be buying Cougar again.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: Good sized mid-tower case with wire management to hide wires in the back panel. Great ventilation and space for lots of case fans (if you need them).

Cons: Would have been nice if cougar kept the hdd slot at the top of the case.

4 out of 5 eggsliquid cooling wont fit

Pros: it seems a decent enough case

Cons: the case seems a little flimsy, but that seems to be the normal these days unless your spending 100+ on a case

Other Thoughts: just an FYI, this case will not fit any top mounted radiator and fans & if you have a large video card, it cant mount on the side either. I researched it the best i could, but ultimately it was my mistake.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Stable, cheap, good-looking case
- Easy to manage cables
- Came with an abundance of materials, such as screws

Cons: - Only comes with one fan (it's a budget case though, and you can buy more)
- Space is tight, took just a little bit of trouble fitting in an aftermarket cooler

Had a lot of trouble installing my motherboard. The spaces for the standoffs don't seem to be accurate and I was afraid that I damaged it during installation. Everything worked out fine in the end.

Other Thoughts: It's a great case if you don't encounter the spacing issues. You should probably get some extra case fans as this case only comes with one. It's a decent case for my first actual build, but with the problems I encountered, I don't think I will want to have the displeasure of building in this case again.

4 out of 5 eggsWhy so sad?

Pros: 6 HDD bays
1 SSD mount (not listed in specifications!) use straight SATA power and data cables to not have any issues like other reviewers complained about.
The front panel pulls off contrary to multiple reviews. No screw removal necessary.
Multiple fan mounting points(6+) with air filters as well.

Cons: I hadn't realized it was a swinging style access panels and had trouble opening it the first time trying to slide the panel backwards.
Also no orange fan as pictured with mine, but it's only a fan.
Only three drive locking brackets which are only for one side. That doesn't matter to me though since I don't trust them I use screws instead anyway.

Other Thoughts: Yes there is a filter under the power supply, however no air can be pulled through it since the power supply pulls air from within the case not through the bottom. So why are people worried about cleaning it??

I wouldn't consider this case fragile, or maybe I just take care of my things. It's a computer, not a footrest, not a dumbbell, you don't drop it!

It does only come with 2 mobo standoffs, and you only need one for ATX. The case has built in risers and only one is used for the center mobo mount which mine had a pilot peg already installed which I removed to be my ground point with a standoff.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Nice case, well designed mid tower. I have used cougar fans in the past and love them so I decided to give this tower a try for a new build. Great price, but could use more fans since it only comes with the one on the back.

Cons: The ssd install location is at the bottom of the case. You screw it in from under the case which isn't that bad. The downside to this is plugging in the sata cable. Unless it is a straight in sata cable at the end of the wire it is difficult to get in without slightly bending the cable. Better off getting a 3.5 to 2.5 bay conversion tray than using the built in slot for a solid state drive.
Definitely not a big enough deal to cost an egg.
