Getting a quality gaming chassis doesn’t necessarily mean spending a small fortune. Introducing BitFenix Merc - an unprecedented value in gaming cases. Merc comes in two flavors: Merc Alpha and Merc Beta, which gives you the option of going with additional fan locations, or choosing a more streamlined look. Ample expansion possibilities mean your Merc can grow with the rest of your system, while friendly DIY features make system installation headache-free. Armed with multiple fan locations and rich connectivity, Merc lets you get your game on without breaking the bank.

Select Your Warrior
Different battles call for different troops. Select Merc Alpha for extra top panel cooling or Merc Beta for a more streamlined look. With BitFenix Merc, the choice is yours.

Ample Expansion
Small but rugged, Merc provides ample expansion possibilities, including three 5.25", seven 3.5", and one 2.5” drive bay. Seven PCI slots accommodate a wealth of expansion cards, and best of all, Merc even handles SSD drives and the longest graphics cards, enabling you to equip the latest firepower to bring the fight to your adversaries.

Rich Connectivity
Each battle is unpredictable, so you need to be fully equipped at all times. With four included high speed USB 2.0 ports, Merc allows you to connect all of your gaming peripherals without the need to purchase separate USB hubs.

Impressive Value
With its black coated interior and quality black cabling, you'll be surprised as to how little Merc costs to bring into your camp. Big features for small money - that's BitFenix Merc.

Question  H100 by Adios

Hi there do you have any idea if I could fit the Corsair H100 Water Cooling Kit at the top of this case?? I know it does say you can fit 2x120mm Fans but I thought I better ask due to the gap between one fan and another?? Thanks Adrian

Answer by mohamedA on Wednesday, March 7, 2012
yes the gap usually makes the difference , the mounting holes are close together on the h100 so i dont think it will fit in this case

 not bad by pitvipersai

Great price for a budget case.
Quite odd setup but nice paint and very spacey
plus a nice little mobo pin to hold in place while you screw it down.
i was a little disappointed that the optical bay panels are only removable and don't fold down but still nice with the flush fitted drives.
great buy for £30 value for money nice bit fenix product

Question  MicroATX Motherboard by kane111

Probably a noob question but will a Micro-ATX motherboard fit in this case and will it have enough room for 2 120mm fans?

Answer by daniele on Saturday, December 31, 2011
The case is Midi (meaning it takes both ATX and mATX) so yes, your microATX mobo will fit just fine in this case and you can fit up to 7 120mm fans!

Will it fit? by Wigglybop

Will these:
2 of 46555

Work together fine? AND all fit in the case in question?
Also, could you recommend any ram for the processor and is available on this site?

Response by stewartz
That should all be fine.

VERY good quality case for the price, I HIGHLY reccomend this case if your are building a system with a large cpu cooler. it comes with a bag of around 15 asortd screws and a high quality brushed aliminum logo badge. well worth the money!
