The Front Panel
We were impressed with the quality of the plastic used on the front panel of the Cougar Spike, as low-cost cases usually make use of inferior-quality plastics, which is not the case here. The reviewed case has two external 5.25” bays and one external 3.5” bay. There is a mesh that doubles as an air filter for the optional front fan. The case supports 80 mm, 92 mm, and 120 mm models.
The case comes with one USB 2.0 port, one USB 3.0 port, and the traditional audio jacks. The USB 3.0 port uses an internal connector.
