Cougar is a new review sponsor at Bigbruin.com, and even though they have been in business since 2007 I will admit I had not heard of them before 2013. If you browse their website you will find they have a fairly impressive selection of computer cases, power supplies, fans, and other accessories that all appear to be geared towards gamers and computing enthusiasts.
