The Conquer represents Cougar‘s foray into an extravagant case design with a futuristic military look that, with its open build-style, guarantees that it will be the centre of attention wherever it goes while maintaining unsurpassed airflow. This imposing case takes inspiration from the futuristic aesthetics embraced by games such as CoD: Infinite Warfare, Titanfall 2, Destiny or Mass Effect: Andromeda. The interior of this aluminium case, with its dual 5 mm thick tempered glass side-panels, also has something else unique to offer: The motherboard is installed at a 45 degree angle, allowing the case to hold GPUs up to 350 mm in length and CPU coolers up to 190 mm in height.
The Cougar Conquer Full-Tower at a Glance:

Similar to comparable cases from IN WIN the case embraces an open build-style.

The 5 mm thick tempered glass side windows and the open side offer an unconventional panorama of the interior of the case as well as direct access to your hardware. The I/O panel comes with two USB 3.0 ports and the audio in- and outputs are located on top at the front of the case, offering convenient access despite the brutal aesthetics of the case.
Varied Air- & Watercooling Options
A powerful gaming system naturally requires a commensurate degree of cooling. It is with this in mind that the Cougar Conquer combines its build style with extensive high-performance hardware compatibility. The flagship case from Cougar additionally offers three pre-installed LED fans in the roof as well as two further slots on the front of the case for 120 mm fans. The roof comes with space for 360 mm and 240 mm radiators and the front reserves space for a 240 mm heat exchanger. Dust filters are, in this case, unnecessary due to the open-air design and the case prioritising maximum airflow. Should dust collect on valuable high-end components, the open backside also allows unparalleled access for cleaning and maintenance.

Content creation sounds like a corporate buzzword, but it refers to making YouTube videos and streaming on Twitch – two of the biggest areas in gaming and technology right now.
They’re growing fast, so it’s no surprise that more people than ever count on these websites for their income – whether it’s their full-time job or just some cash on the side.
YouTube was formed back in 2005 and has grown to become the world’s dominant video-sharing site. It’s tried to muscle in on streaming, too, thanks to YouTube Gaming, which was formed in 2015 to compete with Twitch.

Quality, comfort, and style - these are the watchwords of noblechairs, which makes us pleased to announce the launch of a brand new lineup that offers all of the above. Introducing the all-new ICON Series, comprising 7 different models that represent an exceptional and distinctive contribution to the noblechairs range of luxurious chairs.
