Cougar Challenger Mid Tower Case Review

Rating: 7.0.

Cougar is on the prowl for glory in the mid-range case market with the feature-heavy Challenger. Employing thoughtful amenities generally associated with up-market cases, can Cougar use the Challenger to attack a price vs performance sweet-spot?

A trio of 5.25” tool-less drive bays, an external 3.5” compartment and 7x 2.5/3.5” storage drive slots proves that functionality hasn’t been overlooked by Cougar. Another convenient feature is the external hot-swap SATA port that makes transferring data a quick and simple task.

With 7 fan mounting locations, support for large CPU coolers and up to 410mm graphics cards, conveniently-positioned cable management cut-outs and a truly unique ‘pilot unlock missile’ power button, is the Challenger a weapon destined to force its way to the mid-range cases’ top-spot?
