COUGAR, leading PC case and power supply maker has introduced a PC case with great cooling potential and superior capacity, the MX500. With a European style panel design, the MX500 exudes a classic and minimalistic presence. The sleek modernistic look with a hair-lined surfaced front panel design especially makes for a more detailed and delicate elegance. The MX500 mid-tower case is perfect for users demanding a large upgradeability capacity, with optimal airflow and ventilation characteristics.

The COUGAR MX500 offers ample space for powerful graphics cards of up to 410mm in length. This is achieved by a unique 3-Mode drive cage concept. In standard mode there is 300mm of space, by using a special HDD track mechanism you can relocate the drive cage to gain another 30mm for a space of 330mm, and when removing it entirely you get the maximum clearance of

Innovative air filters on the bottom PSU cover and the side panel prevents dust from entering the inside and accumulating there. Additionally, these filters are now attached on the outside with a magnetic mechanism, allowing for easiest assembly and disassembly. It is very easy to take the dust filters off at any given time, without the need to open the case. A large 20 cm intake fan in the front (with LED lights), and a 12 cm rear Turbine exhaust fan, come pre-installed and therefore provide excellent ventilation characteristics, right out of the box.

To always have easy and clean access to the entire system, the COUGAR MX500 comes with a huge cutout on the motherboard backplate, allowing for spacious room to install or exchange CPU coolers. Additionally, the newly designed cable management system keeps cables away from the setup and tunnels them in a way so users can easily keep track of their hardware lifelines and change them conveniently. This is also a precondition for optimized ventilation characteristics of the overall setup.

The cooling fans of the MX 500 that come pre-installed are two 120mm COUGAR Ultra fans, one in the front and the other in the rear. Not only that, on the top cover, which is the most preferable cooling location that gamers choose, the MX 500 also have a maximum fan size of 200mm as an optional installation.
