The Cougar Panzer Midi-Tower is a very interesting case and if you compare the price with the list of offered features, you can’t really go wrong with the case. The design is very striking and the Panzer Midi-Tower offers good support for the components of a water cooling system. Due to its large mesh surfaces, gaming hardware can also be well cooled by air, so the case is also well suited for later conversion from air to water cooling.
The Cougar Panzer is also available as version Panzer S available with three pre-installed LED fans in the front. The specimen reviewed here is the “normal” Cougar Panzer.
The “large mesh surfaces in tank chain look” make the Cougar Panzer look very martial and the military look frame contributes to the robust, aggressive design of the tower. As always, the design of the case depends on the subjectivity of the viewer.
Both sides are made of tinted tempered glass and are held to the case by thumbscrews. The use of tempered glass instead of acrylic glass additionally supports the robust design of the Cougar Panzer.
The interior of the Midi Tower has a very minimalist design and fits in perfectly with the martial design scheme without forgetting its functionality. The power supply is concealed under a PSU shroud, so you don’t have to see a “cable mess” when looking through the side panels.
Scope of Delivery
Cougar was kind enough to give us four of the very good D14HB-W 140-mm fan with white LEDs and one Deathfire Ex Mouse and Keyboard Combination (for test). The tower itself reached us in a printed package and the first time we opened it we noticed the foam padding instead of the frequently used styrofoam. All necessary accessories can be found in the housing, including the four holders for SSDs and the two brackets for 2.5″ or 3.5″ data carriers.
