My System Specs

Default

I was surprised to see that the side panels operate in the traditional manner. I did a build in a Merc Beta (their cheapest model I believe) and on that one, the side panels latch with something almost resembling a tongue and groove at the front. They come in at a 45 deg angle and then rotate around.

Your findings on the fans kinda surprised me, and got me looking at the stock fan I automatically removed from the Merc and replaced with 1350 YLs... (Knee jerk reaction to every case I run into.... ), but mine is branded as a "MERC" pn A1225L12S so I suspect it's not the same fan.

Great job on the review ST!
