COUGAR Announce The ARCHON Gaming PC Chassis

/ 4 years ago


COUGAR, leading PC case and power supply maker has introduced their latest PC case, the Archon. With an elegant look and support for longer high-end graphics cards up to 310mm, this case is the latest iteration from COUGAR’s line of sleek gaming cases. The ARCHON delivers expansion capability in a subdued enclosure with windows, grills and an orange highlighted interior.

It comes with three 2.5″HDD/SSD trays and three 3.5″ HDD trays and features easily cleanable detachable air filters on the front and bottom covers. Like many of their other cases, there is a transparent acrylic side cover so that you can see the internals of the build.

The case will be kept cool with support for up to five fans: one rear 120mm fan (pre-installed), two optional front side 120mm fans, and two optional side 120mm fans along with seven PCI vented slots that provide flexibility and ventilation performance for multiple graphics cards solutions. If you need to kick it up a notch with water cooling, you can do that too with two holes (with rubber protection) on the rear panel.

This mid tower case of course comes with advanced USB 3.0 ports for maximum data transfer speeds and despite its size, the ARCHON can take up to 8 drives or drive bay accessories in total with the Screw-less mechanism design on the 5.25″devices.

    Judging by the pic. it doesn’t look at all bad for a low/mid range chassis but I wish these chumps and their ilk would stop shipping these things with just one USB 3 port. Why don’t they drop the USB 2 ports altogether and ship it with an adapter for users that don’t have a mobo with USB 3 headers? How will it affect their bottom line, if at all?

    • That’s a damn good point Wayne, I never thought of that and will look into it with manufacturers for future reviews. – Pete
