Today I’m taking a look at the Evolution Mid Tower from Cougar, which is infact the first chassis I have reviewed from Cougar, so it will be interesting from my perspective to see just what they have to offer to the market. Cougar have been around now since 2007, and in their words have been aiming to provide state-of-the-art pc chassis designs and meet the demands of the enthusiast gamer with their products, which as many of you will know is no easy task.

“COUGAR is particularly targeting enthusiast gamers who not only demand state-of-the-art PC chassis and highly efficient power supplies, but also want to express their dynamic gaming lifestyle with reliable quality products.” –

On paper the Cougar Evolution has a robust feature list, such as its unique front panel controller, USB 3.0 support, external 3.5″ & 2.5″ HDD/SDD mount, an integrated fan speed controller, supports for 7 fans, long graphics card support, 8 PCI slots, water cooling support, cable management and plenty of ventilation, so it should perform well in our tests. Come and take a look at the next few pages where I will be taking a closer look at just how well these features hold up.

  • Advanced two USB 3.0 ports for maximum data transfer speed

  • I agree about the paint it makes it look plactic and takes away from the whole case appearnce! I would paint and do a little modding! Rather have the Evolution logo etched on the window!

    I noticed your box says midi tower on it, yet all retail sites and cougars own website lists this case as a full tower. Is this a separate version or is this more of a tweener so its called different things?
