COUGAR Announces Conquer Essence Micro ATX/Mini ITX Case

COUGAR announces the launch of its new compact-format case Conquer Essence. Unique in its premium approach to compact cases, Conquer Essence keeps all the design elements that made Conquer one in a compact format. This approach is unique in that it delivers advanced design features in a Micro ATX / Mini ITX case.

This new case will start retailing with an MSRP of $229 USD during late July in the US, with launches in the rest of the world following soon afterward. As with the original Conquer, the new Conquer Essence's main strength resides in its unique design. The CNC-milled aluminum-based open design and two tempered glass covers create a beautiful silhouette that expresses the COUGAR DNA like no other while allowing a full view of the computer's internal components; Conquer Essence is another step in the guru brand's pursuit of radically new concepts that challenge established conventions.
By bringing one of the market's most sought-after open designs to the Micro ATX / Mini ITX form factor market, COUGAR is raising the design level of a whole category of products that was until now heavily skewed towards budget class features and aesthetics. With this launch, a premium design compact PC becomes less of an idea and more of a reality.

Apart from being extremely attractive in itself, the open design is especially suitable for building powerful RGB lighting systems that shine unobstructed in all their glory. This is not only a beautiful case, but it's also one that can also act as a showcase for users' creativity.
Functionality-wise, Conquer Essence brings everything a committed gamer needs. Support for dual 350mm-long GPUs, plenty of space for storage and the possibility of installing a liquid cooling solution with up to two 240mm radiators guarantee that this case's gorgeous aesthetics does not sacrifice an inch of functionality.

Conquer Essence will be available for retail purchases starting in late July in the US and its US MSRP will be $229 USD.

It's interesting and I'd like to see it "in person", but that's all.

I used to run my case open 24/7 and believe me I had less dust than now when I'm running it closed with 3x intake and 1x exhaust fan. If I got rid of HDDs I'd go back to open case.

Uniquely ugly, dust magnet, overpriced, noisy - this ticks all the boxes of cases to avoid. Standard rectangular cases are boring, but this is not the answer. Like In Win, Cougar is trying to be edgy and cross over into premium territory - they missed the mark with this one.

I've ran open too and while it helped in some areas, other spots got caked worse. Really depends on where you live and the environment.

Right? Not to mention this is one seriously ugly case. Only people wanting to show off their epeen would buy it. So it'll likely sell well.
