I'm in the market for a new case that can hold at least 2x 3x120s preferably 2x 4x120s in the top and bottom position. just looking at the pics posted here it seems like one could fit two full-size rads in this thing. Please forgive me I am stupid and can't figure out how to go about it without having to order a myriad of add-ons and options. Your cases are awesome, but the options are daunting to say the least. Got any pics of these with rads mounted ? Without add-ons ?

With that being said if you tried it and ruined it you could just buy the rear chassis section as opposed to ruining the whole case. That's one of the benefits of this case its "mod friendly" biggrin.gif

Will you sell replacement parts for the Merlin, or will i have to request a special order?
Thanks bud biggrin.gif

Case-Labs normally hold all parts in stock. If it is not listed on the site (would be a nightmare to list all replacement parts), you just drop Jim or Kevin a PM or e-mail and they get back to you with a quote. From previous posts, you can order any part you like.

Yes we will be selling replacement parts. Because Merlin has different chassis configurations (top and bottom sections), and we are promoting the case as "mod-friendly", all of Merlin's parts will be available on the store site.

Just a thought, it would be great if you sold a PCI Backplate with two 92mm fan holes as an option. I say this partially because I believe that 2x92mm would make less noise than 4x80mm but also because I can't seem to find any nice dust filters for this layout. Cold Zero makes a lot of nice TJ07 replacement parts like back plate's that have two 92mm holes instead of the two 80mm fan holes that the TJ07 comes with also sells some 2x80mm or 2x92mm dust covers that look nice that I'd be able to use! I'll likely go with the fan hole back plate so let me know if anyone has any ideas for dust covers especially steel mesh.

What 80mm holes are you referring to? The holes above the PCI slots are 40mm.

Ah, thank you for the clarification. biggrin.gif

Wow. I think I'm sold but more pics would be nice, with rads/psu's set up different ways. If I'm going to convince my wife this is my last case, you have to convince me first. I'm 80% there. wink.gif

Since I'm most likely going E-ATX soon this is nice timing.

So this is able to be set up totally reversed, with the mobo tray on the left, and window on the right (facing the front of the pc)? Pics would be outstanding, especially with large window. My next rig is definitely going to have mobo on left and window on right.

I'm setting aside my first $100 towards this case on Oct. 1, and again each month after that.
Not in a rush to build another PC right now. I should be ready to go when Haswell (and maybe the GTX 780) is released.

But who knows, when my holiday bonus arrives and CL "may" have a holiday special, things can change. tongue.gif
