Cougar introduced Evolution, a new full-tower case for gamers.
COUGAR, brand manufacturer of PC cases and power supplies designed in Germany, is extending their chassis lineup with their latest enthusiast-geared rugged chassis, the COUGAR Evolution full tower. With its spacious interior offering enough room for 8 PCI cards, providing sufficient flexibility for multiple graphics solutions and up to 7 fans equipped with a unique dual-fan-set management system, the COUGAR Evolution sports excellent cooling and ventilation characteristics that are the ideal foundation for a professional gaming system packed with high-end hardware.
On top of the COUGAR Evolution full tower chassis is a well arranged user interface with 2 x USB 3.0, 2 x USB 2.0 connectors and HD-audio connectivity with one microphone and one headset/speaker connector. But most outstanding is the exclusive and eye-catching fan control knob which allows for dual-fan-set management. Now gamers and enthusiast users can arrange their fans within two groups. A typical usage scenario in this field would be to arrange fans around the VGA cards area in one group and the rest in another group, in doing so users can easily tweak up ventilation around the most stressed components when under full load, such as heavy gaming, video editing or rendering etc. As soon as one goes back into normal usage the fan speed can be turned down with ease, thereby effectively maximizing cooling according to the individual needs.
With the newly available COUGAR Vortex series of PC case fans further ventilation upgrades are easily done as they also come entirely tool-less with fix pins for most convenient installation. Also included with all fans of the Vortex series are built-in anti-vibration pads to reduce noise caused by the potential transfer of vibrations.
There are both 120mm and 140mm sizes with three different versions; standard Vortex with 3-pin and Hyper-Spin bearings, with 3-pin and Hydro-Dynamic Bearing and finally 4-pin PWM with Hydro-Dynamic Bearings.
Setting these fans clearly apart from the crowd of available case fans on the market are the high-Vortex-Airflow innovative turbine blade that focuses the air-flow in order to optimize overall cooling efficiency in combination with the also patented frame that further helps to increase efficiency as well as operational silence. These are unique design characteristics making the difference.
Also conveniently located on the top of the case is a hidden hot-swap docking station for 3.5” HDDs or 2.5 SSDs. This docking station is covered by a lid which provides protection against dust and even light water spills.
When it comes to looks, the COUGAR Evolution convinces with a combination of rugged elements consisting of honeycomb and mesh intake designs adding to its overall strong appearance.
The entirely screwless design makes upgrades and components exchanges as well as regular maintenance and cleaning a breeze, and an easy undertaking even for most novice users .
The COUGAR Evolution is available in two different color versions, one being “pure black” , the other “galaxy white”, at an end-user price of $94.99.
