5 out of 5 eggsTough Case

This review is from: COUGAR Orange Challenger Black Steel ATX Computer Case with 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans and 20cm LED Fan

Pros: First off, this case is tough. I was building a a system for a friend and woe is me, dropped the completed system down nine concrete stairs. amazingly everything inside survived and still works. Just needed to replace the case. Other then that has all the features and customization's for any configuration you want to try.

Cons: Front fan went out after two years. No big deal.

4 out of 5 eggsSweet

This review is from: COUGAR Orange Challenger Black Steel ATX Computer Case with 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans and 20cm LED Fan

Pros: The case was the right say everything fits perfectly the way it needs to. It looks amazing, made of a sturdy metal.

Cons: The pictures don't show the way it actually is, 90% of it correct but the back fan in the picture is bright orange while the one sent was all black. Other then that I find it rather amazing.

4 out of 5 eggsNice midtower case

This review is from: COUGAR Orange Challenger Black Steel ATX Computer Case with 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans and 20cm LED Fan

Pros: Very nice looking. Front panel removes easily. All tool-less design. Plenty of room for the latest graphics cards (gtx 970 here). Stock fans are quiet. Easily removable dust filter on the bottom. I configured the case in "B" mode. No screws needed when installing your SSDs. Cable management was actually better than I thought it would be and I ended up with more room than I have behind my full tower. I'm using an older non-modular power supply with long cords everywhere and there is just enough room behind the case to stash everything providing you keep the overlap to a minimum. No bowing out of back panel if you do it right.

Cons: Cons & nitpicks:

- My worse grip is the bumps it uses in place of mobo standoffs. I installed a micro-atx board and its USB 3.0 front header port is partially blocked by one of these bumps. I managed to get the plug connected with force but there is a lot of stress on the board. Knocked an egg off for this.
- No interior grill guard for the rear exhaust fan (and it came black instead of the pictured orange.)
- No connecter block for the front panel plugs. Getting those tiny plugs on the correct pins is a pain.
- Drive bays come in "A" mode. If you are going to switch to "B" or "C" make sure you do this before you install anything. There is a small screw right against the back panel that gets removed and it will be blocked by your mobo/memory.
- Non-removable dust filters at the top (esp. if you have fans installed there.) Why put filters on your exhaust unless you want to keep the dust IN your case?

Other Thoughts: Also added a bottom intake fan and 2 top exhaust fans. This case looks sweet and is quiet and would've gotten 5 eggs if it weren't for the fact my front usb mobo connecter may be on borrowed time. If you're using a standard ATX mobo you won't even notice this.

5 out of 5 eggsStop debating and BUY THIS ALREADY.

This review is from: COUGAR Orange Challenger Black Steel ATX Computer Case with 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans and 20cm LED Fan

Pros: Everything that isn't liquid cooling. The convenience is unmatched and the powerful look has intimidated local buddies.

Cons: Cons? Uh... it should be more expensive for how awesome it is. I feel like I ripped newegg off by only paying what I did.

Other Thoughts: The only reason you'd buy a computer case that isn't this one is because it's got liquid cooling. This is the best case I've ever seen, and the fact that it's priced really low is just downright unfair to its seller.

3 out of 5 eggsIts Nerf..or nothing?

This review is from: COUGAR Orange Challenger Black Steel ATX Computer Case with 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans and 20cm LED Fan

Pros: Its Orange?? Looks like a Nerf product at first glance! the 200mm works well, dust filter is a plus. Little to no sound comes from the case. have had it for a year now. Many trays for Optical, SSD, and HDD. USB 3.0 on front

Cons: Cable management is poor, had to squeeze a spiderweb back there. The front panel (WILL) pop off, if you plan on moving this thing around, be careful. The bottom rubber floor stubs will even come right off if not careful, but will snap back on.

Other Thoughts: It's ok for your first build, and if you like orange..and Nerf.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's Huge !

This review is from: COUGAR Orange Challenger Black Steel ATX Computer Case with 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans and 20cm LED Fan

Pros: Tool less bays, lot's of room. Would be a very good server if you had lots of drives. Top sata connector for easy HD swapping.

Cons: Much bigger than what I expected but I should have read dimensions. The front panel will pop off VERY easy and so do the bottom legs.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have LONG cables on your power supply. The 1st PS I tried, the 24 pin connection was stretched too tight for my liking so I had to use another.
