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.
