New case to join the catalog of the Cougar brand: the Cratus. In the program, we find an imposing model offering a very particular design. In short, a case between open frame and tubular chassis.
Cratus : an original case from Cougar!
Nevertheless, this model will be imposing since it measures 283 (W) x 635 (D) x 636 (H) mm. The weight is also consequent since this model displays 14.9 kg on the scale. Yes, it weighs a lot, but we will remember the massive use of tempered glass: 4 panels with 3 mm thickness.
Inside, the available space remains important since we can install a motherboard in E-ATX format. The graphics card will be able to measure up to 460 mm without radiator on the motherboard tray, 325 with. The power supply has a clearance of 180 mm against 190 mm for the CPU cooling unit.
For watercooling, we find compatibility with 360 mm radiators at the top and on the motherboard tray. At the front, we are limited to 280/240 mm maximum. As for ventilation, the case will accommodate up to nine fans in 120 mm against four in 140 mm. Finally, we will retain some interesting features related to cabling such as Velcro strips or a cable cover on the back. On the front, we have the right to a nice curved tempered glass wall. And to facilitate the transport and handling, a number of handles are present everywhere on the case. Finally, all that remains is to know the selling price which, according to us, should not be cheap!
