I'd love to avoid a huge case since it needs to be on the desk. It's a large desk, but still need it small if possible.

Mercury S8/S8S? (2x 360 top?) What is the difference anyway? Magnum SMA8 (top and bottom chamber 420/480?)? Magnum TH10A, - 2x 480 top?

Ideally, a low height, double chamber with 480 or 560 or I presume high height, single chamber, top and bottom.

SMA8 with 560 in the lower and 480 up top or get custom with 2X560s.

TH10A can get two 480, right? Single chamber, no drilling.

Ok I'm fighting in my head on which CL case to get next, thought I was 100% on going with a BH4 and then I keep getting drawn to the S5's.  Really I need a case that would be easy to transport which I why I was looking at the BH4 (has handle options) and looks to be around the size I would like, but it appears the S5 would fit the size criteria plus anything is easier to move compared to a M8 and even easier than an M8 w/ pedestal.  Right now the 303 is ok but was a b!tch to move really.  Also I want another CL case lol since every event I've been to I'm the only one to have one. . Plus there are a couple S5's for sale in the marketplace w/ the top I want since CL stopped making it, Window/vented.

This SM8 build is a perfect example of how you can have both a very compact case and a ridiculously massive amount of hardware and cooling:

Even though I've read through his log several times now... I still spend a few minutes each time just in awe of it. thumb.gif Wish my SM8 build was half this good. But I do not envy him the work required to break everything down for maintenance and/or upgrades. redface.gif



It would have been stupidly easy to do two 480s... but dual 360s and a 480 all push-pull.. kookoo.gif

So a Merlion SM8 can fit dual 360 and a 480 in a push pull? Wow, nice. Will need to see how this works - seems that all his rads do intake and he just gets the warm air out at the back vent...
post #21446 of 21626
I believe he actually has the 480 set to 'exhaust' out the top... so theres 12 fans worth of 'intake' and 8 fans worth of 'exhaust' - at least that's how it was configured... he changed some things later on but if you look at the pics of the rads in post 16 of his log it shows the rads assembled but not installed.

Plus those are all 60mm radiators... if you just went with 45mm rads like I'm using in my SM8 it would fit even easier.

EDIT:
And obviously if you didn't require an optical drive like he did... and went with just straight fans or a 240mm in the front... then two 480's would fit easily.

The only pre-requisite is obviously you need the PSU rail to relocate it to the 'innards' of the case rather than the top or bottom.

If that's still not enough - you could always get a pedestal or 3 (like mandrix biggrin.gif ) and make a monster if you determined it still wasn't enough... footprint on the desk would be the same but it would be so tall it would probably need a wall anchor for safety! tongue.gif Not to mention it would cost much more than just going with an SMA8 or larger to begin with... but it does fit well on the desk.

Can't rush quality, Even though it says 9 to 10 weeks for shipping it usually takes longer. It took 14 weeks to get mine. Still worth the wait.

I would go with S5. Not sure how your going to handle the cooling. S5 gives you the option to watercool with some breathing room. I find the bullet way to small, Some GPU's have problems fitting in the BH4.
