Cougar Spike Mini-Tower Gaming Case and Cougar Dual-X LED Fans

Cougar, a leading German PC case, fan, and power supply manufacturer, has introduced a new Mini Gaming Tower case called the Cougar SPIKE. The SPIKE Mini-Tower was designed to deliver expansion capability in a micro-ATX space-saving design. The Cougar SPIKE case is a smaller but is designed to accept the longer high-end gaming graphics cards with up to 330 mm of clearance.

The Cougar SPIKE Mini-Tower sports a gaming themed style with a black interior to give it a professional and sleek look.
