Cougar Attack X3 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

by - 5 years ago


Final Thoughts


The Cougar Attack X3 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is available from most popular retailers on pre-order, with stock coming very soon, in a choice of Cherry MX Red, Blue, Brown and Black. The best price we found so far is at Overclockers UK for just £84.95.


Time and time again we’ve seen Cougar deliver fiercely competitive peripherals and I’m happy to say that this trend is continued with the release of the Attack X3. There are a lot of mechanical gaming keyboards on the market, but the X3 is a welcome addition and comes in at a very competitive price, so it should appeal to quite a lot of people.

The build quality on the X3 is fantastic, it’s very durable and has a good weight to it without feeling overbearing. Of course, a lot of that strength and quality comes from a sizable lump of brushed aluminium, which plays no small part in giving the X3 a gorgeous appearance. Even with the backlighting turned off, the keyboard looks great, but the warm red under glow really brings out the textures in the metal work.

Having a choice of four Cherry switches on a new keyboard is quite rare too, so I must commend Cougar on giving their customers so much choice. Personally, I prefer to work on MX Red switches, but given that this is one of the quietest MX Blue keyboards I’ve used, it’s certainly the model I would have to recommend the most, but everyone has their own preference when it comes to switch types.

At just £85, the price is very competitive for a mechanical keyboard, and there are a lot of cool features here that add to the overall value. The UIX software is packed with cool features, such as full-key remapping, macros and the ability to tweak multiple Cougar products from a single interface. There’s a black braided cable, which is nice and durable, removable key-caps for easy cleaning, or to allow custom caps, LED backlighting with brightness adjustment and a range of multimedia shortcuts.

Overall, another solid addition to the Cougar range, and without a doubt one of the best sub-£100 mechanical keyboards I’ve seen this year.


  • Excellent build quality
  • Gorgeous aesthetics
  • LED backlighting
  • Aluminium chassis
  • Multimedia keys
  • On-board storage
  • UIX software
  • Competitive price


  • None

“With lots of great features, a stylish design and excellent build quality, the Cougar X3 ticks all the right boxes for a great gaming keyboard which will make a great addition to anyone’s desktop setup.”

    It looks pretty good although I would like to see full RGB on the next Cougar keyboard. I have their 700K which has worked well for me so far and I’m happy to see they’ve dropped the idiotic ‘split’ spacebar from the previous versions on this model.
