Cougar today expanded its DarkBlader line of asymmetric front-panel mid-tower cases with the new DarkBlader X5. This case retains the core design of the older DarkBlader series cases, with a handful changes: firstly, the larger trapezium-shaped half of the front facade is a tinted, translucent (frost finish) plastic surface, instead of a solid slab of metal-finish plastic. The smaller half has three large air intakes for the fans inside. The DarkBlader X5 by default doesn't include front fans, but its slightly pricier DarkBlader X5 RGB variant include three. The RGB variant also includes a 6-channel ARGB lighting controller, and a front-panel switch that lets you toggle between several lighting presets. Both the base- and RGB variants further come in two color-based sub-variants: black and white. These aside, the DarkBlader X5 has identical dimensions and features to the original DarkBlader series. The company didn't reveal pricing.
