2 out of 5 eggsI wanted to like this case

Pros: Price; looks.

Cons: Build quality; design errors.

Other Thoughts: This is no Cooler Master. I chose this because of its small size and adult looks, though I have always used Cooler Masters in the past. My last build was with a CM Elite, which is also cheap as dirt. It was superb except for CM and Intel not agreeing on the dimensions of a MB. I actually had to fabricate short standoffs to let the IO plate match the hole in that case. Anyway, I ran into some problems that beta testing would have caught in the Cougar case. First, there is no cutout below the CPU. This means the MB must be removed to do a CPU or cooler upgrade or repair. And if you use those problemmatic Intel coolers that may or may not snap into place, it really helps to be able to see the bottom of the MB to confirm when all is right. When they don't want to snap into place, the force of Atlas may be needed, and you should have your hand underneath to prevent damaging the MB. Second, you cannot install a 3.5" hard drive without removing the CPU cooler. If your cooler requires access from below you must totally disassemble the computer to move, swap or add a 3.5" hard drive -- a price I was not willing to pay. To conquer this nonsense I mounted my HDD on the floor and left the bays vacant. That is not as dumb as it seems, because there is no provision for a fan in the 3.5" bay area. The final engineering error was evident when I fit the expansion cards. Using this Intel MB (DG965SS, and I have no idea whether this would be the case with any other MB), the case IO slots did not align with the MB, and tightening down the IO brackets caused the brackets to ratchet, or cam, out of alignment. I regret my purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsattentive service

Pros: I had some trouble with a desktop build. I bought the parts, but didn't get around to the build for several weeks. As I built it, I had some intermittent trouble and suspected it to be the power switch on this Cougar case. I contacted Cougar and they sent me a replacement switch quickly and at no charge. Bravo!

Cons: No "cons.: The reason for 4 eggs is the switch had trouble in the first place.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget case

Pros: Low price, full black interior, feels well made.

Cons: Cable management could be tricky depending on what type of power supply you use. Only includes one fan but that's being picky since this case only costs about $35. tool-less mounts are just ok. No access to back of motherboard but again it was only about $35.

Other Thoughts: Well made case, great for a budget build.

5 out of 5 eggsI really like this case

Pros: - Front USB 3.0 Port
- Nice Full Paint Job
- No sharp edges
- Power and Reset buttons are crisp

Cons: - Side Panel screws are a little chincy

Other Thoughts: 5 stars based on the price. You can get better cases if that's where you want to spend your money. But, for $43 shipped I think it's great! - The drive quick-release(s) are fine if you don't man-handle them.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice case

Pros: Very nice case. Have used two of them. Not cheapy looking. On and reset switches work and don't stick or break. Has a light up ring around both.

Cons: hard drive status light is not quite as bright as the power light.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful case for the $$

Pros: I've become very fond of Cougar cases. This is the 5th build I've done with a Cougar case, and each one has been a great experience compared to some other cases I've used. Although there's nothing super speacial about the case, it's solid, with good airflow, and features that are often associated with case costing much more. I really like the fact that this Micro case uses 120mm fans....makes for great airflow, and very quiet operation,

Cons: None from my prespective.

Other Thoughts: To date the only "con" I've found with Cougar case is that fact that some of them come without a reset switch....just pay close attention to the specifications when deciding which to order, and you'll be fine. Personally, I feel that the value factor on Cougar cases is very high, with quality and features that are far above their price point.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: As others have said, Sturdy, compact, fits large graphics cards, and plenty of room for fans.

Cons: Also as mentioned before, the tooless system is garbage. Barley holds the drives in place. I accidently snapped a piece off of one, and then switched to screws

Other Thoughts: Great buy for a budget builder, Looks great, Very compact.
