The Cougar Panzer G is an upgraded version of the original Panzer which combines the benefits of the Panzer-S having additional fans with even more glass panels all around. All that without a crazy big price difference make the Panzer G quite the intriguing choice for those who are fans of understated looks and maybe a more professional work environment.

Who knows?

I just want to know how the fuck you can call a case you haven't actually fucking tested, worthy of an "Editors choice" award.
Is the profanity necessary?

I agree though in the sense of we need to have temp results.

These cases are all the same. Same kind of tempered glass front with the silly three fan RGB design. I am no fan of these designs and frankly, the previous Panzer cases were much better.

Hopefully this trend of these cases dies out quickly. We need variations on case designs. Not the same copy+paste we been getting now for over a year.

What I find weird, that there's as a pro "Great liquid-cooling compatibility " and as a con "Quite the simple interior with no mounting holes for reservoirs or pumps "

Crappy mounting isn't exactly a way to have great liquid cooling compatibility, as I know from my Corsair Air 740.

Yes the profanity is necessary. TPU's case reviews are a fucking joke. A set of nice pictures, a regurgitation of the marketing materials in Darksaber's own words, and he assembles a test system in it. As long as the test system goes together without an obvious incompatibility then he slaps TPU recommended or Editors Choice on it regardless of whether it vibrates like crazy and sounds like a rattletrap, or chokes the components to death.

And yes, as Chloe pointed out, you can't review a case's supposedly fantastic liquid cooling compatibility and then rag on it's interior being poor for liquid cooling.

It's high time @W1zzard demanded Darksaber's case reviews be worth half a shit to read. It's not as if it's impossible to just have the dude buy a thermometer and report deltas over ambient after 15 minutes of Aida64. It'd be the literal least he could do.
