Default CaseLabs Mercury S5 Case Review

The CaseLabs Mercury S5's price may be high for an mATX-compatible case but it is also one of the highest quality, best engineered enclosures we have come across in a long time.

Hey I bought the Canadiana water block from Dazmode too! Nice review Dimitry.

Can we get Pirelli or Michelin Pilot Sport cup rubber for those case wheels? If not then epic fail

I never got the point of wheels on a case, how does that increase portability? Give me a handle on the top any day.

Wheels are great for watercooled builds. When you're trying to slide around 70 pounds under your desk, wheels work way better.

I like the case, not a fan of the price.

Having a case w/o casters sucks so much. A handle on something the size of a case labs? That would be putting 40-70 lb on the aluminum top. It would destroy the case the first time you lifted it. That is assuming you could even lift it.

I can lift 70lbs one handed without to much difficulty but that's true I never took into account the weight all that weight water and rads add. That said even when your case is on the ground you are going to to want to lift at some point.

Honestly the best cases ever. I have a SM8 and I love it. Great review. I'd would love a S5 too just dont have the budget. Great review Dimitry, nice to see Daz getting some love too, such a great company and owner.
