4 out of 5 eggsOverall, a case you want to love

Pros: Excellent versatility, you can fit almost any combo of video cards, hard drives, or peripherals in it. I was ok with the little plastic holders, which some reviewers say is flimsy. They give you a decent supply of holders. The tooless holders for the 5.25 bays are a bit finicky with aftermarket holders (I slid in a holder for a small factor card reader and it would not lock). It is a nice design, with great airflow, I have 2 fans (140mm) in front, a push pull on a hyper 212 cooler, and exhaust out the back and the top and my I7 5930 is running at 85 degrees F. Very quiet with the Cougar fans. Nice front panel removal and top plate as well. Overall very good case for the cost.

Cons: It has a weird issue, if the front plate is put on, it will not power up, but removed, it turns on with no issues. Then we get to the fun part: go to the Cougar web site and you get:
Support Ticket System Offline
Dear users,
Thank you for your interest in contacting us.
This system will be maintained from 2016-02-05 to 2015-02-14. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Really Cougar? No forwarding address or alternate way? Yopur customers just get to sit for 2 weeks until you get your service system fixed? Not very supportive.
If I cannot divine the reason this thing will not power up with the cover, it will have to be relegated to the junk pit.. a shame really, I did really like this case..or wanted too...

Other Thoughts: I egg for no support system, could be 2 if the front panel issue isn't resolved...

4 out of 5 eggsgood case for the money but.....

Pros: lots of vents for fans or radiators and its comes with filters. the case is sturdy and a lot of flexibility on mounting options for HD and fans. HD slots can be converted to give more room for a bigger graphics card. has a good amount of room to hide your wiring behind the motherboard

Cons: the feet come off very easily if you slide the case just a little on the floor when its loaded but you can put them back takes a little work.
I don't like the way the opening of the slots for running the wires are open and I wish it came with grommets for those slots.

Other Thoughts: overall a really good case for the money. well made, very flexible and good amount of room for wiring but those feet for the case coming off so easily,I had to give it 4 eggs
