Many companies build up their mid-tower chassis to full-tower scale to entice experts of conventional logic. Convention claims that full-towers outperform mids in cooling and airflow, and a quick look at the words “full” or “mid” are often enough to win or lose a recommendation from that experienced friend.
Our experience has been quite contrary. The smallest case to hold a certain fan configuration usually has the best performance for that specific fan configuration. And that’s where Cougar makes its move: The fluff present on so many of its competitors is used in this case to provide additional fan mounting space between the chassis and outer shell, allowing users to put radiators where they would have normally placed fans.
