[de]Cougar hat mit dem QBX Kaze ein auf den ersten Blick interessantes Gehäuse geschaffen, das Platz für eine Mini-ITX-Platine bietet. Trotz der Tatsache, dass es sich hier um ein äusserst kompaktes Gehäuse handelt, besteht die Möglichkeit eine High-End-Grafikkarte zu verbauen sowie auch einen 240-Millimeter-Radiator. Dementsprechend scheint sich das QBX Kaze bestens für den Bau von HTPCs oder gut transportablen LAN-Party-Rigs zu eignen. Zu guter Letzt ist auch der Preis auf einem äusserst konkurrenzfähigen Niveau. [/de][fr]The QBX Kaze from Cougar appears to be a rather interesting mini-ITX case. Despite the small size it offers plenty of space and flexibility on the inside and therefore you can install high-end graphics card as well as a 240mm radiator. This small cube could be perfectly suitable for HTPC builds and apart from that you could even create a very small LAN party rig. Last but not least also the price is very interesting.[/fr][en]The QBX Kaze from Cougar appears to be a rather interesting mini-ITX case.

Nonostante le piccole dimensioni il case è in grado di ospitare schede video di fascia alta, dissipatori a liquido AIO e soprattutto alimentatori ATX. Il piccolo case dal prezzo molto interessante non solo si configura perfetto per soluzioni da gioco anche di fascia alta ma è in grado di ospitare alternativamente anche un buon numero di HDD.[/it]




[de]Cougar ist immer noch verhältnismässig neu im Gehäuse-Geschäft. Nichtsdestotrotz scheint man mit dem QBX Kaze ein solides Gehäuse ins Programm aufgenommen zu haben, das zudem mit einem vernünftigen Preis punktet. Vor eingen Monaten nahmen wir uns bereits der Standard-Version an, wobei es sich beim QBX Kaze sozusagen um die abgespeckte Variante in einem günstigeren Kleid handelt.

Führen wir uns einige erste Details zu Gemüte, dann sehen wir, dass dieses 180 x 299 x 386mm kompakte Gehäuse Platz für ein ATX Netzteil bietet und zudem können auch Gaming-Grafikkarten sowie All-in-One-Wasserkühlungen verbaut werden. Während die meisten mini-ITX-Gehäuse maximal mit Low-Profile-CPU-Kühlern versehen werden können, erhält man hier also deutlich mehr Flixibilität. Des weiteren besteht gar die Möglichkeit bis zu fünf 120mm-Lüfter unterzubringen. Will man dieses Gehäuse mit Laufwerken bestücken, dann gibt es Platz für eine 3.5-Zoll-Festplatte und darüber hinaus lassen sich bis zu vier 2.5-Zoll-Laufwerke verbauen.[/de][fr]Cougar is rather new to the case business. Nevertheless the QBX Kaze appears to be a reasonably priced and solid mini-ITX case. A few months ago we have already reviewed the standard version which features a different exterior but very similar interior. Since this is a case for mini ITX motherboards the QBX Kaze is very compact yet it still supports an ATX power supply. Measuring 180 x 299 x 386 millimeters, there is enough space for high-end components like big graphics cards and all-in-one water cooling.

Storage wise there isn't a lot of flexibility but one 3.5" HDD and four 2.5" SSDs can still be installed. The cooling side on the other hand is interesting. While most of the tiny mini-ITX cases of the same range are only compatible with low profile CPU coolers, the QBX Kaze can house a 240mm radiator or a CPU cooler with a maximum height of 105 millimeters. Furthermore you can install up to five 120 millimeters fans.[/fr][en]Cougar is rather new to the case business. Nevertheless the QBX Kaze appears to be a reasonably priced and solid mini-ITX case.

Alcuni mesi fa abbiamo recensito la versione standard che differisce da questo modello solo per la parte esterna. QBX Kaze è un case super compatto compatibile con schede madri mini-ITX e alimentatori compatti da 140 millimetri ATX. Nonostante il case sia veramente contenuto in termini di dimensioni, Cougar QBX è in grado di ospitare schede video di fascia alta e sistemi a liquido AIO.

Per quanto riguarda l'archiviazione non vi è molto spazio a disposizione tuttavia è possibile installare fino ad un massimod i quattro SSD da 2.5" e un HDD da 3.5". Come accennato in precedenza il reparto di raffreddamento è molto interessante. Nonostante Cougar QBX Kaze misuri solamente 180 x 299 x 386 millimetri è possibile equipaggiarlo con cinque ventole da 120 millimetri. In aggiunta, nonostante la stragrande maggioranza dei case della stessa dimensione richiedano soluzioni ad aria a basso profilo, QBX Kaze è compatibile con radiatori da 240 millimetri o dissipatori ad aria da 105 millimetri.[/it]
