COUGAR MX500 Midtower Case

On November 5 2013, in Taipei, Cougar introduced The MX500 Mid-tower case . This case has a distinctive European style to it and is perfect for users who expect large upgradeable capability with optimal airflow and ventilation characteristics. The MX500 offers ample space for 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 you remove it entirely you get a clearance of 410mm. Here’s a spec-sheet below with more info.     Specifications Case Type Mid Tower Motherboard Type Micro ATX / ATX Dimensions 210(W)x 475(H)x 480(D) 5.25″ Drive Bays 3 Exposed 3.5″ Drive Bays 7 Hidden 2.5″ Drive Bays 3 + 4 (converted from 3.5”drive bays) I/O Panel USB3.0 x 2 ( int )/USB2.0 x 2, Mic x 1, Audio x 1 Cooling system Max Installed: 7pcs Fans Front 140mm Fans x 2 / 120mm Fans x 2 (120mm fan x 1 pre-installed) Top 120mm Fans x 2/140mm Fans x 2 180mm Fan x 1/200mm Fan x 1 Rear 120mm Fan x 1 (pre-installed) Bottom 120mm Fan x 1 / 140mm Fan x 1 Left side 120mm Fan x 1 / 140mm Fan x 1 Expansion Slots 7 Maximum Graphics Cards Length 410mm Power Supply Standard ATX PS2 (optional)    


System Mechanic 12

Intro This has probably happened to most of you: while sitting at your computer, playing a game or scoping out some new hardware you wish you could own, it occurs to you that it has been a while since you ran all of the maintenance procedures for your computer.
