*whew* Finally in the club.



Some first thoughts:

Three of the corners were bent exactly like the picture I saw in another thread, I really did not want to wait for replacements so I used some needlenose to bend them back

I've seen a ton of stuff about mountain mods inferior quality in comparison to CL and I have to say most of it didn't really pan out (imo), CL obviously did quite a bit more research and design into how people route cables and a lot of common configurations where MM kind of gives you a box and you fend for yourself, but I don't consider that to fall under the category of build quality, they seemed about even to me.

The HD caster set is pretty beefy and the fact that the wheels lock is awesome.

I kind of wanted the extended top to do push/pull for the 2x 360s in the top but the case looks so clean with the normal top I will wait and see what kind of temps I get on an oc'd 5960x and 2 titans and decide later.

I have some time yet before real building begins but I can get a few things done, I painted some corsair fan rings a few different shades of grey to see which looks the best, will be interesting to see the fans through the mesh.

A great product so far, shipped on the last day of the 5-10 business day window and got here quickly, not a far trip from socal to norcal. Thanks CL!

Just got my Mercury s5 in. Just a few things to note.

1. Is there a manual or some sort of guide on how to assemble the case? I couldn't find on in my box, so it took me about an hour and a half to put mine together(I love it)

2. One of the pieces came bent, So i couldn't screw in on of the screws in the back. Will the guys at caselabs send me a new piece, or do I have to stick with a bent piece. Its totally cosmetic, but if in the future I order a full window, it will look quite ugly.

3. the top and the drop in mount should really be able to be turned 180 degrees, or at least have an option to offer flipped top radiator mounting.

4. the front panel seems to slide up and down a tad bit, its not really annoying, just something i noticed.

I am overall loving the case, its just unfortunate I didn't get an assembly manual, and that one of the pieces was bent. The box that it shipped in was perfectly intact, so I think it might have been a quality control issue.

I'm moving pretty soon, so I probably wont be able to have any professional photographs, mostly just the ones from my phone. Ill post those later.

Id give the case a 9.5/10, while it is absolutely remarkable, the case still has a few little points that I am concerned about. .5 deducted for the bent piece that is attached to the drive cages, and the inability to orient the top drop in mount 180 degrees.

Is it still in the planning stages? Any hints? Double wide or single wide? M8/S8 are at the top of my list but I need to wait and see Gemini!

I'm waiting to see the Gemini case too before making a decision.
post #8810 of 22265
You guys will be waiting a long time then. The entire Mercury line was released before Gemini and the upcoming "X" line will also likely be out before Gemini.
