Today we are pleased to formally announce our newest entry in our line of high performance enthusiast cases, the Mercury S3, our first case for Mini-ITX


Aluminum Construction: The case is made using heavy gauge all aluminum construction. Unlike some imports using thin aluminum (.040" - 1mm), our case frames are made from .090" (2.3mm) for a case that can stand up to the rigors of large scale water cooling and frequent system tear-downs. Aluminum is much lighter than steel, dissipates heat better, and is easier to mod.

Quick Access: The doors and covers can be removed in seconds to facilitate access and minimize the chance of damaging exterior panels during a build. The side, front and top covers snap on and off - no screws to slow you down or get lost. The "cover over frame" design allows the frame to be modified as needed without affecting the appearance of the completed build.

Removable Motherboard Plate: The entire motherboard plate lifts out making MB and cooling block installation a breeze. The motherboard is mounted horizontally providing extremely easy access during setup and testing and the ultimate in component stability.

Mod Friendly: The S3 was designed for modders. The case is screwed to together so it can be completely broken down. Each case component will available separately, so feel free to cut, drill and mod without fear of "destroying" the case.

Flex-Bay System: Almost every case on the market today has a fixed structure at the front of the case - maybe four or five 5.25" bays on top, a 3.5" bay below that and HDD cages below that. What if that layout doesn't work for you? We've all seen people who have had to mod their cases (sometimes irreversibly) to fit things like radiators. With our Flex-Bay System, you can design that superstructure to be anything you need, put things wherever you want and change it as often as you like, within minutes. In that respect, you become the case designer. We have a wide array of Flex-Bay adapters and mounts, so you have complete freedom to design it just the way you need it.

Accessory Mounting System: If you ever wished that you could put a fan in a particular spot or needed a surface to mount something to, our Accessory Mounting System will make your life much easier. By using the holes around the perimeter of the case, or by using vertical or horizontal accessory mounts, you can place fans, reservoirs, pumps, and more, exactly where you want them (maybe just a flat plate to cover up messy cables). We have a wide variety of plates and fan mounts for almost every need. Click here for more information about the Accessory Mounting System.

Drop-in/Side Radiator Mounts: If you have ever mounted a push-pull radiator inside a case, you know what a pain it can be. Our optional drop-in and side mounts (pedestal) let you assemble the whole thing on your desktop and install it as a single assembly into your case.
