Recommended installation sequence and wiring recommendations

The COUGAR PURITY RGB belongs to the mini-tower case category, characterized by its compact internal space distribution. While it offers the advantage of an aesthetically pleasing exterior, it presents a bit of a challenge in terms of cable management skills for the user. However, the case is designed with several cable routing openings and generous space in both its upper and lower compartments, making assembly manageable for experienced players.

In a practical setup with the COUGAR PURITY RGB, I chose an M-ATX motherboard paired with a 240mm graphics card. Initially, I contemplated installing a top-mounted 240mm AIO to assess the internal space and cable routing with the hardware setup. However, the manual specifies that if an AIO is installed, the height of the memory on the motherboard must not exceed 34mm. Lacking a suitable AIO cooler of this height, I opted for a CPU tower fan instead. The PURITY RGB, being a mini-tower M-ATX case, requires players to pay close attention to space constraints and installation order when planning to install an AIO, such as memory height limitations and CPU power cabling.

For the front panel cooling, I installed a set of 120mm fans at both the top and bottom, facilitating effective airflow throughout the case.

When installing an All-In-One (AIO) cooling system in the COUGAR PURITY RGB case, it is crucial to consider both the height of the AIO and the installed memory on the motherboard. Ensuring compatibility between these components is key to selecting the appropriate AIO cooler for the setup.

After the hardware is assembled, connect the power supply and slightly arrange the wiring on the side panel.

In a hands-on assembly test with the COUGAR PURITY RGB, I tried out an M-ATX specification motherboard to get a feel for the actual space utilization. As per the manual’s indication, if you plan to install a top-mounted AIO, the memory installation height is limited to 34mm. For this hardware setup, I positioned a 120mm fan on the front panel to facilitate internal airflow in the case. For CPU cooling, I used a 125mm tower fan. The case’s design, with multiple cable routing openings on the back panel and the bottom, allows for efficient cable management, with excess lengths neatly concealed in the lower compartment.

Under the AIDA FPU and CPU stress test for high-performance computing, the overall cooling performance of the COUGAR PURITY RGB case was satisfactory. However, the rear fan generated noticeable noise, especially when operating at high speeds for extended periods. This is partly due to its proximity to the motherboard’s VRM, which might contribute to the mechanical sound during intense operations.

Beyond its ARGB lighting setup and pre-installed ARGB fan, the COUGAR PURITY RGB case captures attention with its 3mm thick hinged tempered glass side panel. This design not only makes accessing the internals easy and enhances the aesthetic appeal, but it also includes additional ventilation ports on the front panel to ensure smooth airflow within the case. Despite being a compact case, it conveniently accommodates standard ATX power supplies as long as they are within the 160mm length limit, negating the need for smaller SFX units. Installing front panel fans may slightly reduce the available length for graphics cards, but there is still ample room for standard-sized GPUs.

Overall, for those who favor an eSports RGB style and prefer to invest more in hardware, the PURITY RGB offers an affordable option that doesn’t skimp on ‘holy light.’ Priced at $1,490, it’s available in both black and white, making it an ideal choice for budget-conscious, light-chasing PC builders.
