Just do it as it is a awesome case you will not regret it!!!

Plus for that price it is a steal!!

The rig I took to LANOC and SalukiLAN is a Caselabs Mercury S3 with an I 7 4770K and a 290X Tri-X inside. We windowed the GPU side to show off the card and solid paneled the other side. To give the case proper air flow I am using a Water 2.0 Extreme cooler in the front with 4 stock Thermaltake fans. The software for the Extreme is set to Silent mode so the fans are running very slow and super quiet. To this I added dual Fractal Design 140mm fans at the top both as intake and then a single Fractal 140mm at the rear as the sole exhaust.

Under heavy gaming load the 290X is only hitting at 70C and the CPU at 50C, (both at stock) the liquid temp in the cooler has never broke above 30C. The system temp from the motherboard is reading around 44C and all of this with the case being so quiet that even with your ear to it you cannot hear it. The massive positive airflow I have going helps a lot, the rear fan is moving more air out of it than some fans at their highest speeds. In fact just putting my hand over the rear vent area, not the fan I can feel some serious air flow.

For what I want to do, which is show off a video card and keep my system quiet and cool these cases are the best. I know most people think water cooling with these cases and a custom loop. I can tell you a more basic build will excel in this case as well.


I would go out on a limb and say that most people would have spent the money on the custom loop first before they decide and get a CL case. I could never justify moving out of my Prodigy until I saw a certain Mercury S3 case go on sale here. Then again, I'm still a student and I do not have a real adult job yet, so I'm only thinking with a limited perspective.

That said, those are honestly great temps for what you have and these are indeed the best cases to showcase all the parts inside (especially with a top window).

I really love the CL Mercury Line!!! Can't wait to start my S8!! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





I love the figure being inside the case! I wish I could fit mine inside, but the S3 wouldn't allow it. Great color scheme!

If you have a 360 with drain port in the front bays with 120.3 flex mount, with drain facing down, that would be your lowest point to drain the radiators, and with a 360 on the top, you would have a point to bleed air out and fill without dealing with my 5 1/4" bay reservoir.

Just my crazy thoughts...
nah you can get an extended top for the ths too, but imo it is not needed !~ there is plently of space above the mobo for them and you getta see the eye candy !

That's a screamin' deal! I'd be all over that... as long as you have room for it. You could build in one half and just use the other half for storage biggrin.gif

New buildlog to go along with a new S5 I hope biggrin.gif

Planning on it...if I could actually get my hands on the case. frown.gif
It was ordered the 23rd of February, and it's been awaiting fulfillment ever since. I got word that there were some QC issues with my case, so it's been held even longer to address those.

Did you order something that was multi-colored? Keep in mind that the 7-10 business days is ONLY for black chassis. 1 Week Extra is added for cases of other colors. Plus, if they did have QC issues (probably with the paint), they aren't going to ship it out to you. Ensuring that you get what you pay for is extremely important. Rest assured, when you do get it, it will be the best unboxing you'll ever witness. smile.gif
Nope, all one color.
Like I said though.

I'm trying to remain positive though, I'm glad they're taking the time to make sure the case leaves them in the best possible condition. Also, I've been pretty busy with personal things, so I have no free time anyway.
So it's cool. smile.gif

The TX-10 is like a printer (Or Keurig or Blood monitor for example)- the actual unit seems fairly priced until you realize need to spend a week's salary on keeping it working over time.

Honestly I would only go for the TX10 if you're sure you want one. It's far easier to work on two separate cases and the thing is so huge that it really limits where you can put it and view it. Unless you are really really want it I wouldn't advise it. The TH10 or STH10 can provide everything you need for a single build, and if you actually need a TX10 then you probably could work with two STH10s more easily. Plus you start having to worry about breakers and other issues that come with two crazy powerful builds in one rig.

Having said that the price he's offering you is crazy good. A TX10-D is 860 I think, the pedestal is 260 and thats without the extended top and rad mounts. It's pretty easy to rack up 1500+ on a TX10 + ped just for the case + accessories.

FWIW I just spent another $200 on additional accessories for mine. There was a time where that would buy me a case lol.

My suggestion if you do want to stack them on top of each other might be two S8s with pedestals for cooling. I assume S8's can stack anyway.
