Here are the first pictures of Cougar's QBX mini-iTX tower-type chassis. Measuring 158 mm x 373.5 mm x 282 mm (WxDxH), the case can seat a standard mini-ITX motherboard, with 160 mm tall CPU coolers, and graphics cards as long as 35 cm. In the picture below, Cougar installed a Radeon HD 5970, which is among the longest DirectX 11 graphics cards ever made. The case can also seat a standard ATX power supply towards its front portion. Its cooling features include two 120 mm exhausts on the top, with provision for 240 mm x 120 mm radiators; an 80 mm rear exhaust, and a 120 mm intake on the side panel. Storage area includes one 5.25-inch drive bay, one 3.5-inch internal bay, and three 2.5-inch ones. Front panel connectivity includes USB 3.0 and HDA jacks.
