    Default Cougar MX300 Case review

    Introduction We always want the best case for the best components on our next build right? Well, let’s be a little realistic here, we always can’t afford the best of the best and sometimes we settle for something to make budget. The question is, do we cut our budget for hardware or the chassis? Introducing the MX300 from Cougar, a mid tower case that offers a wide variety of hardware configuration, cooling support and custom configurations. We recently had the opportunity to review the sister chassis called the MX500. Does the new MX300 live up to the expected reputation Cougar has built or does it need some help? Before we dig in further, let’s read up on Cougar.

    COUGAR is particularly targeting enthusiast gamers who not only demand state-of-the-art PC chassis and highly efficient power supplies, but also want to express their dynamic gaming life style with reliable quality products. COUGAR therefore wants to provide these enthusiasts with best-in-class innovative and cutting-edge gaming products. COUGAR was founded in 2007 by a group of enthusiastic and professional people in Germany who felt PC hardware had changed very little over the past 20 years, most cases and PSU models remaining rectangular boxes, having the same boring looks and an internal layout with endlessly uncreative cosmetic variations and poor quality. Therefore, COUGAR wanted to provide gamers more stylish product concepts meeting strictest quality requirements. Now, COUGAR has developed into a global brand manufacturer bringing innovative, high-performance and high-quality components to the PC gaming market. Brand philosophy Passion X Innovation With utmost passion COUGAR is keen to provide most innovative solutions that 100% meet customer needs. Thinking differently and adopting new trends while constantly focusing on functionality and user-oriented product improvements, that is our foremost corporate culture. COUGAR is always striving to satisfy demanding gamers with innovative and technological leadership.

    Good review Joe. A part of all reviewer dislikes (totally agreed with), I also don't like the front (to much dust hungry front side), difficult to clean but overall not a bad case with one very good price ($59).

    Always look beyond the limits...

    Good review there. While it DEFINITELY improves upon the "gamer" feel they wanted with the MX500... why... OH WHY... put the window in front of the damn HDD cages? Raise your hands if you'd rather see the cages or all that lovely hardware... ... ... ... *crickets chirping*... ... ... *nervous coughing*... ... ...


    It's k... soon they'll see how to PROPERLY do case windows ;-)

    God review Joe. Its an ok case if you are just tossing a system together for somebody that its as Case Shallow as most of us here. Not a big fan of the front bezel. Too much going on for me. Then again Im old and this looks to be aimed at the younger gen gamer.
