Cougar Introduces the DarkBlader X5 Mid-tower Case

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.

COUGAR Launches its First Ergonomic Chair ARGO

COUGAR, leading brand in the development of PC gaming hardware and peripherals, announces today the arrival to the world markets of an innovative Ergonomic Gaming chair, the combination of Gaming and Ergonomics to help gamers optimize their performance.

"In the last five years, COUGAR has been receiving feedback from customers that expressed a wish for an improvement in the gaming chairs market, which had long been plagued by problems such as non-functional designs, poor quality, overheat and humidity from the body, pain and fatigue and more problems. In view of this, COUGAR decided to take matters into their own hands. We love gaming, and we have worked hard for years to provide PSUs, cases, cooling and peripherals suited to gamers' specific needs. We took a long, hard look at the gaming chairs market and to be honest, with few exceptions, we did not like what we saw. We knew it was time for us to do something about it," said Lio Huang - Brand Director.

Cougar today unveiled the GX-F Aurum line of premium power supplies for gaming PCs. Consisting of 550 W, 650 W, and 750 W variants, these PSUs offer fully modular cabling, 80 Plus Gold efficiency, a single +12V rail design, DC-to-DC switching, and tight ±3% voltage regulation.

COUGAR Releases the Ranger Gaming Sofa for Royal Gaming Comfort

COUGAR today announced the release of a gaming-styled sofa (and yes, now you can believe it isn't a typo or this editor simply mixing home furniture concepts up in his head). The Ranger has been designed, according to COUGAR, for smartphone and console gaming, and features a reclining mechanism (95º to 160º) that allows you to take a quick nap whilst your teammates do all the hard work through that raid or pesky dungeon you've already gone over and over again. In this chair, you're royalty, after all.

The frame is surely made of viking-smithed steel (COUGAR only states steel, which is surely a technical oversight from someone having written the description in a sofa other than the Ranger). The material is high-quality, breathable, heavenly leather with a real diamond-cut pattern. There's lumbar support, a headrest, and a footrest. Sadly, there's no support for that 12-year single-malt whiskey you've been saving up for such a gaming-oriented occasion, which seems like a slight oversight. This Ranger doesn't feature the usual mobility associated with that particular gaming class, though: at 700 mm width, 980 mm depth, 1,025 mm height, and 31 Kg of pure, comfortable mass, it won't be a good companion for either your wallet (shipping costs) or an accessory to prove your supremacy in battle, to be carried over by a page. One-year warranty and an April 22nd shipping date have been given, and the Ranger should be available for $280.

The mic features 9.7 mm of active noise cancellation, 100 Hz to 10 kHz frequency response, and -47 dB ± 3 dB sensitivity. The mic stock is detachable from the rest of the headset.

Cougar Intros Vortex RGB HPB 120 Fans

Cougar today introduced the Vortex RGB HPB 120 mm fans in packs of 3, meant for 360 mm x 120 mm radiators. The fans are more optimized for radiators and heatsinks than case ventilation. The fans are characterized by a unique fan frame design, with guide panes that create a vortex at the receiving end of the fan, which Cougar believes, will increase the amount of heat picked up by the air, from heatsinks and radiators. At the front end of the frame (from which the fan draws air), is a silicone diffuser with 18 RGB LEDs.

Since these are sold in packs of three, the pack also includes an RGB LED controller dubbed "Core Box," with an RF remote control. This controller supports up to 8 fans, and up to four LED strips. As a fan itself, the Vortex RGB HPB 120 takes in 4-pin (PWM) input, spins between 600 to 1,500 RPM, pushing up to 43.54 CFM of air at top speed, with a noise output of 26 dBA (the company didn't mention at what speed).

Cougar Intros the Phontum Pro, Immersa 2, and Havoc BT Gaming Headsets

Cougar launched three new gaming headsets and an external DAC this Computex, including the Phontum Pro, Immersa 2, Havoc BT, and Dive. The Phontum Pro is a step up from the original Phontum headset the company launched at CES 2018. While its design is practically unchanged from the original, the Phontum Pro features a circular RGB LED diffuser that lights up the grille of the cans. You also get virtual 7.1 surround DSP. It's compatible with Cougar's proprietary UIX software, which gives you virtual 7.1 processing, a graphic equalizer, and controls for the RGB LED illumination.

The Havoc BT is a pair of wireless in-ear gaming headphones, which you can use over Bluetooth 5.0. You get up to 8 hours of listening on a full battery charge, with each of the two earbuds embedding its own battery. Under the hood, these pack 10 mm graphene diaphragm drivers. The tips are made of memory foam that retain the unique shape of your ears. The Immersa 2 is an evolution of the original Immersa headset, which got an RGB LED upgrade with last year's Immersa Pro launch. What's changed are the new titanium-coated diaphragms inside the 50 mm drivers which produce a "unique" sound-stage; 35 mm thick ear-pads that are now made from memory foam, and a larger 9.7 mm microphone.

Cougar's Puri Keyboard now Available in Silver, with White LEDs

This version features a matte silver finished bezel, with flat Allen key rivets holding it to the base-plate. The keycaps sit tall, though not all the way up (above the plane of the bezel). The keycaps are matte-black, and have a white LED illumination with 20 backlighting modes. The keyboard itself has a 108-key layout, with four media keys, and the Fn key converting the function keys to re-programmable macro keys. Cougar will probably price this on par with the original, at $79.99.

Cougar Shows New Gaming Keyboard with Integrated Speakers

Probably the most oddball fusion of two components, Cougar unveiled a prototype gaming keyboard with integrated stereo speakers. The body design appears to be an evolution of the company's Attack X3, with a few polygonal cutouts along the side-walls. These speakers feature drivers found in notebooks, and take advantage of the hollow space inside the keyboard, and its metal base. The keyboard takes audio input from a standard 3.5 mm jack, while a USB connection drives the rest of it (probably including an amplifier for the speakers). There's also a downstream 3.5 mm jack to plug in your headphones, which probably mutes these tweeters integrated speakers, when your headphones are plugged in. How does it sound? Like your laptop. As a keyboard itself, you get a standard 104-key layout with RGB LED illumination, and special chrome keycaps over the WASD and arrow keys.

Cougar Announces Attack X3 RGB 2018 Edition Keyboard

Cougar today announced a refresh of its popular Attack X3 RGB mechanical gaming keyboard. The new 2018 Edition of the keyboard comes with an ergonomic palm-rest that's detachable. The palm rest has slightly raised rubberized surfaces towards the edges, where its designers thought you'd typically rest your palm, that is, until you find yourself typing quite a bit. In that case, your right palm will find itself in a gap between the two rubberized edges. Apart from the palm rest, the Attack X3 RGB 2018 Edition is identical to its 2016 predecessor.

Cougar has launched another tower chassis to its lineup in the form of the glass-clad PANZER-G. The PANZER-G makes its Cougar DNA known through its orange accents, which give an aggressive look to a pretty elegant case. The symmetry of the chassis has been achieved in a way that guides your eyes vertically through the chassis.

COUGAR Announces the Phontum Gaming Headset

COUGAR is proud to announce today the arrival of its new Phontum gaming headset. Two interchangeable ear pad sets and splendid audio quality are its main strengths. This new headset will be available worldwide before the end of January 2018.

Both ear pad sets sport a premium soft protein surface that feels smooth to the touch. Together, they ensure that the user gets the best experience.

COUGAR Announces Two New Flagship FPS Gaming Mice - Minos X5 and Revenger S

COUGAR announces today the arrival to international markets of its two new FPS gaming mice: Revenger S and Minos X5. This pair of gaming input devices is the result of years of research, optimization and field testing with the single goal of helping gamers unleash all their gaming skills.

These two mice share the same powerful entrails, packing within themselves everything a gamer can ask for. The first piece of this dream configuration is the Pixart PMW3360 sensor, a piece of technology that has already become a byword for accuracy and one-to-one tracking. Building on that excellent base is COUGAR's fine-tuned electronic specifications and structure that grant both mice the ability to work with a 2000 Hz polling rate. This combination of specs is at the heart of these mice's superiority: The optical accuracy of the PMW3360 allows gamers to bring all their prowess to the game, while the 2000Hz refresh rate sends updated input data twice as fast as most competitors. Accuracy and fast response meet in a lethal combination that potentially allows gamers to react twice as fast as their rivals using non-2000 Hz mice.

Cougar Adds the Puri and Puri TKL to Their Gaming Keyboard Line-Up
