post #8781 of 22275
Hey guys! I have a few questions about a CaseLabs S5 I am going to be ordering soon. I thought you guys would be able to answer them!

My first question is, if I order a model with both side panel windows as well as a top panel window, will I be able to still cool my components by air?
I do plan on water cooling in the near future, but at the moment, I won't be able to afford the case as well as a loop.

My second question is, how much bigger is the S5 than the S3?

I wish I could afford the Merlin SM8, but I think it's just too much at the moment.
They don't ever run any sort of sales, or offer coupons, do they? Anything would help smile.gif


Thanks!

You will have more than enough cooling when it comes to air cooling. I suggest getting the dual 140mm flex bay mount in the front.

The height is the same IIRC but the S5 is about 3 inches deeper and an inch or two wider to support mATX boards.

I was actually surprised how big is actually it actually is, but I still love it all the same. Just waiting to see what mATX boards are coming out for X99 before I can finish building.

Awesome! That's good to hear!
Would you happen to know the size difference between the S3 and the S5?

I currently have a Bitfenix Prodigy, and I am not sure if the S3 will be much bigger than my Prodigy.

S3 is 380 x 268 x 382
Prodigy is 404 x 250 x 359
Height width depth in mm

So the s3 is shorter, but slightly wider and deeper.

Hey just had a quick question, guess I was so excited to make the order I forgot to ask this beforehand lol.

Regarding the S8

If I'm planning on having some HDDs (3-4) in the HDD area do you think I'd need to have one of the sides with vents at the bottom? Or would they be fine down there without it?
