Cougar Unveils the DarkBlader Line of Full-tower Cases

Cougar unveiled the DarkBlader line of ATX full-tower cases characterized by an asymmetric trapezoid front design, and two variants based the front panel. The DarkBlader-G has a tinted tempered glass front insert, while the DarkBlader-S has an anodized-aluminium insert arranged in a stepped pattern. The rest of the front panels on both models have a brushed metal finish. The right side panel is dominated by a tempered glass panel, and the case's front-panel connectivity are arranged along the side, with light-framing that glow in RGB. On both cases a trapezoid RGB LED diffuser runs along the height of the case. Besides ATX, the case supports E-ATX and CEB motherboard form-factors.

Inside, the DarkBlader features a conventional horizontally-partitioned layout. The motherboard tray has room for graphics cards up to 38 cm in length, and CPU coolers up to 17 cm in height. Storage options include two 3.5-inch trays that can also hold 2.5-inch drives; and 3.5-inch mounts behind the motherboard tray, which can also hold onto 2.5-inch drives. Ventilation includes three 140/120 mm front intakes, either two 140 mm or three 120 mm top exhausts, and a 120 mm rear exhaust. You can mount a 360 mm x 120 mm radiator along the front, and a 360 mm x 120 mm radiator along the top. The case includes an RGB LED lighting controller. Measuring 232 mm x 523 mm x 518 mm (WxDxH), the case offers 8 + 2 expansion slots. The company didn't reveal pricing.

I had to re-read it a couple of times too. Not overly impressed but not disappointed either in the design. Name really sucks though.

Front Airflow grille check, vertical GPU mount check, nice looking design check.
Indeed a very good looking case.
That slide out radiator tray looks useful too

Anything red&black should be banned as a cliche, played out trope....or banished through a dimensional portal ala Ash from Evil Dead 2 back to 2012 and prior. Oh teah, anyone who still thinks the red & black "gamer aesthetic" is cool should swear themselves to silence and shoulder their shame in silence.
