Cougar NxSys Aero Gaming Chair Review

Rating: 8.0.

The NxSys Aero RGB chair from Cougar features an internal 200mm RGB fan in the backrest. The fan aims to keep gamers cool when things get intense. That's not all this chair offers on paper though. A class 4 gas lift, supporting up to 160KG in weight, internal lumbar support and a magnetically attaching head cushion show that this chair means business. Is there a good, ergonomic chair hiding behind all the bling?

  • Built in fan provides subtle cooling to your back
  • Generally comfortable
  • Good quality interior padding
  • Convenient magnetically attached head cushion


  • Non adjustable lumbar support
  • Non adjustable armrest width
  • Hard castors are not ideal on hard floors

KitGuru says:  The NxSys Aero is a very unique chair. The built in fan does a good job of cooling your back when things get a bit intense while gaming. However, the lack of adjustable lumbar support is a big oversight. Overall comfort is quite good, the internal padding provides enough support while still remaining soft and well cushioned. The build quality is generally ok and all materials feel premium and parts well made. If you live in a hot climate and struggle coping with the temperature while gaming, then this chair may have the answer to your problems.
