You just lost a customer - and several more since I will be telling all of my friends - all PC enthusiasts - to avoid your company.

I think I know what Xnine was trying to say but I agree, absolute statements can be easily taken the wrong way. I've known Jason for some time now and know that he would never denigrate someone's build, nor would I ever tolerate that. I really don't believe his intent was to offend anyone, so I'm sorry if that was the case.

The reality is we've supported 140.x radiators from the beginning. The original double-wide cases had integrated 120.x mounts to help keep the cost down and the PSU compartment was too narrow for 140's, but the pedestals had 140.x mounts from the beginning and so has every case since then.

The truth is 140.x radiators have only recently started to become more widely used. I say that based on the radiator mounts/case configurations we sell. 120's still outsell 140's by a large margin (about 5:1), so 140's still have quite a ways to go. We will continue to support them any any new formats that appear promising in the future. Thanks smile.gif

By the way, still love my S3. Mike/werm, it's been a month and I haven't sold it yet, lol.

@CL - Love the cases but if you ever come out with something smaller than a S3, like a true SFF, I would be ALL over it. smile.gif

I think a lot of people would.

Ok then, NOW I want my 180.1 and 200.1 support in the S8 tops!!!

GIGGITY!!!

But seriously though, the Mercury line (specifically the S8) can and does support 140.X radiators and fans in all kinds of configs.

I'm swinging a 140.2 in the flex bay, and it looks AH-MAY-ZINGAH.

Terrible picture, I know... (Click to show)






Thanks - T

Apart from the offered options don't forget that with the right bracket, you can fit a 240 rad in the S8's HDD bay...
and 420's it's ped too wink.gif

Nah, not running with them, just offering up other 140.x options.

I did seriously consider the ped, but I didn't want to loose the drop in option.
The 140.3 had to be fitted from the inside (and custom brackets fabbed)

I'm Sticking with the 120.3 all round in Salive8 thumb.gif

Hey B Neg, did you see this version of the S8 tech station when I posted it ?

The more I look at CL cases,the more they dont need that ped option...I regret mine,its handy but the case looks so much better without it. Im going to finish this build,run it for a few months then tear it down for a rebuild without the ped.....like I was originally going to do. Got a back panel blank coming to completely re-structure the inside.

All the air is exhausted via my PSU or the rear exhaust fan. Also, as long as the width of your side radiator is 30mm, you can fit both radiator and fan without affecting the front 140mm fan. Since my side radiator is 35mm, I had to place the fans behind the drive bay chamber and move my PSU more towards the right side edge.




Thank you for your input!

The truth of the matter is that 140mm fans have not been the defacto standard for enthusiast level builds, mainly because radiators have long been only available in 120mm spec. There haven't been many radiators in the past that accepted 140mm fans. Years ago cases came with 80 and 92mm fan spots in the rear. That's all but gone now. Companies have moved to 120mm as the standard. There wasn't even an industry standard for mounting 200mm fans up until about a year ago, and I suspect there still isn't, but companies are starting to make their 200mm fans with similar mounting now.

The push to 140mm has literally only been within the last few months. So all of the cases previously released didn't have that as an option. Seeing as that it's now something people are demanding more of, that's what we'll try to provide for in the future. As more radiators are produced with 140mm, you'll see more companies move to accommodate that.

Okay, I guess I misunderstood what XNine had written. No hard feelings then.

I suppose I have two choices now - either get the 140mm to 120mm fan adapters and mount the 140mm radiator to one of the cases - either M10, TH10A, SMH10, or STH10, OR can you guys drill a couple of holes on the regular 120mm panel on those cases so that I can mount the 140mm radiator?

So I guess I will narrow down the choices to SMH10, TH10A, or the M10.

Hmm...
