My System Specs


One of the highlight features of the COUGAR Challenger is something that could be easily overlooked: a cover mechanism that must be lifted up before the system can be powered up, similar to the safety mechanisms on the missile controls of a fighter jet. First impressions may be imply this is simply a novelty feature, but COUGAR has applied the concept as a safety feature, to ensure there is no accidental pressing of the power button during heated gaming sessions.
What? Never, not once, have I ever 'accidentally' pressed the power button on my tower by accident during a heated gaming session. Keyboard start menu key, yes (I now have a keyboard that locks out the win key...that is actually a useful feature), but never the power button.

I suppose if a 'heated gaming session' involved doing the horizontal tango on top of your computer case, then yeah, I could see why that button cover could come in handy.
