CaseLabs announces the Mercury S8! - Page 162

post #1611 of 2032
But the vents are optimized for the rads they support, seems like a good way to trap heat.

Maybe so. I'm wondering what the performance of a large panel like a MORA or my Phobya is compared to some of these thicker 360's in tandem. It would be interesting to see before trying to make a purchase.

Probably not much. All your doing is adding more space, which means more liquid, which means MAYBE a slightly cooler temp once everything reach equilibrium, and by slightly I mean probably 1C or less, if that. Then again, more fans and a harder running pump.... probably isn't worth it.

I don't agree I think the greater surface area would radiate more heat. Now yes you would have to have the pumps and fans. But surface area is greater than thickness.

Even with super low fan speed I've found surface area is king for dissipating heat. I think the stock vents on top could restrict heat dissipation but I'm sure with ventilation the more surface area would win. At least that's been my thought process and why I have a1080 and two 240's in serial. But I'd like to have stuff that fits in my case and thick low fpi radiators might be a similar surface area to a larger (harder to mount) thinner surface area.

Just ordered my Mercury S8 case. Looking forward to moving my gear and water loop into it!

Congrats and thank you! smile.gif is this your first CL case?
post #1618 of 2032

Got mine today! A couple of things was bent but it was nothing I couldn't fix! Great finish! Now I never want anything but powder coated cases.

We'll see what I can build with this!
