Inside the Cougar Spike
Both panels are attached to the chassis using black thumbscrews, which is great to see on a low-cost case. The motherboard tray of this case, however, doesn’t come with features that are virtually standard nowadays, such as a cutout for you to access the backplate of the CPU cooler, holes for you to route cables behind it, and clips for you to fasten cables using cable ties. In fact, you can’t store cables behind the motherboard tray, as there is not enough space between the motherboard tray and the side panel of the case.
In Figure 12, we have another overall look inside the case. Expansion cards are fastened using regular silver screws. The Cougar Spike supports video cards up to 13” (330 mm) long.
As previously mentioned, the power supply is installed at the top of the case, and the case doesn’t support fans on its bottom panel.
