A few Questions About CaseLabs Mercury S8 and Mercury S8S, Thinking of buying one.

1. The window for XL side panel, what is made out of? Plastic, Glass, Tempered Glass, etc...
2. With Mercury S8 case. I have four 3.25 Harddrives and 2 2.5 harddrives. Would standard option be fine or would I need to add an extra HDD cage?
3. Are Mercury S8 and Mercury S8S suitable for Aircooling or WaterCooling? I was go with Air until I know enough about Water to attempt it.
4. Would AIO Coolers like Corsair H110i GTX or NZXT Kraken x61 fit if you pick the 140 option?
5. Whats the biggest Radiator you can fit in Mercury S8 and Mercury S8S? 360, 420, etc...
6. I have exactly 21 Inches in height would Mercury S8 fit? Not sure about rubbing legs on the case.
7. Anyone know if you can get inside of Mercury S8S in an all black? The picture shows White inside.


  1. Windows are acrylic I believe.
  2. Without any accessories, you can fit your 4x 3.5" HDD in the cage and your 2x 2.5" drives under the MB on the stealth tray.
  3. Cooling you can go either way
  4. If you want to use the 280 coolers then you need a 120.2/140.2 mount (your choice of 3 but I always recommend drop-in style). If you want to mount a AIO in the flexbays your hoses may or may not reach...
  5. 360s will fit; no 420 mounts available. Forget who's build but 420's will just fit in the pedestal - but you need to make your own mounts.
  6. S8 is 18.74" high without feet, say 19.5" with; if you want casters then you'll be up to 21.3" or so - very tight for you...
  7. Right now black is only color available - when colors come again you can order your mix part-by-part if you desire.
post #16005 of 22194
I narrowed my choices down to Mercury S8 and Mercury S8S. I leaning toward S8S since a bit smaller but almost exactly like S8.

1. In the Mercury S8S, On the front at the upper left, the square cutout.I'm assuming that's a fan intake that accepts 120mm fan?
2. For Mercury S8S and If I pick Ventilated Flex Bay Covers. Is it possible to put in fans with the bays I don't use? Say I use two or three could rest support say 140mm fans?
3. If I don't use both Radiator mounts on the top. Could I use them as a fan exhaust?
4. The Front IO Is their any kind of LED for power or such, If so what Color is it?
5. Hows the noise level? I know some Cases you hear everything.
6. The back Exhaust and the exhaust near the 3.25 HDD cage, Anyone know what size the fan size is (140 or 120)? I have three 140, not sure if I need 120mm instead.

- Thanks

  1. Yes upper left is for 120mm fan
  2. Vented covers are vents only. If you want fans in the flexbays you need to order the correct rad/fan mounts to hold the fans in place.
  3. You can add fans only on the top mounts, or if you don't want you can go with the mount+window option.
  4. The vandal switches have LEDs built-in to them - the Power switch has a blue ring (power indicator), the Reset switch a red dot (for HDD activity). They can always be changed out if you want different colors; you can get from Performance PCs and others.
  5. Noise level depends on which fans you select, if you add sound dampening, and how much venting you select with the case. Really can't comment on the noise level of the case itself; it's what you put into it.
  6. The rear lower fan on the S8 is 120mm.

Yup pastel blue and some dark blue dye (can't find dark blue dye any where anymore but it's great for blue, purple even res to darken the color

That's a very good question...

The best thing you can do is contact Swiftech support...

Going to stick with AIO (The Upcoming 360 Predator from EK). I really don't want to deal with draining the loop every 6 to 12 months.

With the EK predator it's designed to push air in. Could I use the top right for Predator and top left for fans for taking air out(Exhaust)?

Sorry for all questions.
