Of course, that is subject to change wink.gif There are a couple of cool features, but I'll be shot if I say anything more biggrin.gif

You might get shot if you don't frown.gif

I was going to spring on a T10, but the size will kind of be a big deal hauling the beast to my dorm room. I'm in need of a XL-ATX case with support for two 60m 360 radiators. Will Merlin have any in this form factor? Also with there be extended tops or an optional pedestal and will there be a dual PSU support?

Best Regards,

Jaywar

Your best bet for that (two 360's and dual PSU's) would probably be an M10 with an extended top if you're looking for something smaller than a T10. There will be an XL-ATX (10 slot) version of Merlin, but it's pretty iffy at this mount if it will meet your requirements without resorting to a pedestal or extended top cover (which would still make it quite a handful to haul around).

will there be an aircooling-centric version of the Merlin? I have been thinking of building my next rig for the cycle after ivy and want to keep it dry for now; maybe have a case with 3/4 180mm fans in the bottom and top for awesome cooling power tongue.gif. would also love a brushed and anodized option for these cases biggrin.gif

On the M10 with extended top 85mm, would I be able to fit a 60mm rad (XSPC RX 350) and a set of fans (25mm) above it? I know 60+25= 85mm, but I'm not sure if it would actually work? I want to do push-pull if that would be possible.

Best Regards,

Jaywar
