HAF series was a pretty good series.. and this case doesn't look too bad but we can't see any inside pics and that makes me really curious. So far tho of all these new cases coming out that Xigamatek case so far is win.

I have serious hope that Cougar has used Superflower as the OEM for their Platinum design. They have a really clean nice unit available, hopefully cougar went with that one.

I've been scratching my head on these new 80+plat PSUs from Cougar. 80 plus certification doesn't list any platinum certified units under Cougar/HEC/Compucase or any other affiliate company. The list is current as of today as well. Cougar has always used their parent company or a parent affiliate as their OEM.

True, makes one wonder where this one came from or what is actually under its hood.

Although it would be a shocker if someone else was their OEM for this, it may just be a unit that we have not yet seen available or that is listed.
