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. With the usage of Mini and Micro ATX motherboards growing as they become more complete, many system builders feel that ATX motherboards can be replaced by Micro ATX motherboards. As such, COUGAR thinks that the Mini Gaming Tower is a future trend for space-saving PC gaming stations. They are also making it somewhat portable, as well as easier to carry to LAN partys.

The Cougar SPIKE Mini-Tower sports a gaming themed style with a black interior to give it a professional and sleek look. Drive installation is quick and easy with the SPIKE due to COUGAR’s tool-less design technology for easy installation of 3.5” and 2.5” HDDs/SSDs. The case also supports the installing of a 2.5” HDD/SSD at the bottom of the chassis. With any PC case ventilation is crucial and Cougar’s SPIKE case comes with one rear 120mm fan pre-installed, and provisions for a total of up to four. One 80/90/120mm fan for the front (optional); one 80/120mm fan for the rear (pre-installed); and two side 120mm fans (optional). The Cougar SPIKE Mini Gaming Tower also supports USB3.0 for maximum data transfer speeds. The Cougar SPIKE Mini-Tower Gaming Case has a suggested retail price of only $39.99, and is specifically designed for the cost conscious consumer who is looking for an entry level case that he or she can build on. Read on and let’s see if the Spike from Cougar fits the bill.
