    I do not like design of this case. It's asymmetric garbage.

    I imagine this is what it would look like if Lizzo sat on a computer case.

    looks like a mash up of a snow shoes, snowboard, and windshields.

    Someone spent way too much time taking winter vacations.

    How about just making computer cases easy to use and access proper cooling without making into transformer wannabees ????

    Yes indeed…another new COUGAR exotic tempered glass enclosure. Reminds me of an earlier much more conservative looking Panzer EVO RGB ATX edition which also sported tempered glass cladding all the way around. One of my friends owned such a 'Cougar Panzer' case and found it to be of poor quality and especially with all of the case interiors, fans & controls, cabling, PSU shroud, cable management access, etc. Value engineering at its best! He admitted though that he initially purchased the Panzer solely based on its looks. That actually was how I met my blond girlfriend as well. Putting insult to injury my friend finally wound-up in permanently removing the front and top tempered glass panels to dramatically improving airflow. WTF! I am not convinced if Cougar has changed since then in their lower quality (interior) case manufacturing processes and keeps on being more concerned about looks than actual function. As to the ‘Cratus’ and its ‘funky design’ it will most likely not appeal to the mainstream but rather to a very limited market segment! But then again what do I know about marketing...driving a forklift on the third-shift and drinking entirely too much Mountain Dew!

    The whole point of a PC case is too direct air flow in a certain way. How does this work with an open case like this? Poorly i bet.
