5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be put off by the price..., 10 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BitFenix Merc Beta Midi Tower Chassis - Black (Accessory)
I've just built a new system and was getting a little short of funds so i plumped for this case as a means of lowering the overall cost of the build. I had never heard of BitFenix before, but after a little research I decided to take a gamble. Very pleased I did, as this case, for the price, delivers everything you would need for a medium level build. The build quality is good, black inside and out with no sharp edges. There's quite a good amount of space behind the the motherboard for cables etc, so it wont get in the way of the airflow. Speaking of which, the options for fans is pretty impressive for the price - it comes with a single 120mm fan at the rear with room for two 120mm fans behind the fascia, two 120mm fans on the case door and a further 120mm fan on the floor of the case. Plenty of room for hardrive's etc and the front fans will help to keep them nice and cool. I've got an Asus GTX 550ti in there and there's plenty of room, so larger cards shouldn't be to much of a squeeze. The only component that hints at the budget nature of the case are the side doors - they are a little thin, but not to flimsy, and once they are secured with the thumbscrews you wont have any problems with them. I was thinking that it might be a little noisy due to the thickness, but this has not been an issue. You also get a plate mounted at the front containing a mic in, headphones and 4 usb ports which comes in handy as you no longer need to fiddle around the back to try and plug in your usb devices. All in all I'm very pleased with this product, and for just over 30 it has to be considered a must purchase if you want to save a few pounds.

just for the record my system is as follows...

BitFenix Merc Beta case
Gigabyte Z68p-ds3 Motherboard
Intel i5-2500k processor
Akasa AK-CC7117EP01 K32 High Performance Intel Cooler for LGA775, LGA1156 and LGA1155
Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB 1600MHz CL9 DDR3 Vengeance Memory Two Module Kit
Asus GTX 550ti

hope this helps.
