Default Gigabyte 3D Mercury Water-Cooled Case Review

Going deaf from all those noisy fans cooling your high end hardware? Not skilled enough to switch to water-cooling without turning your room into an Olympic swimming pool? Gigabyte has the solution: a case with build-in water-cooling. Just snap the water blocks in place and your ready to go cool & quiet.

Very complete review Geof, congrats !

I completely agree with your conclusion though : hard to recommend such an expensive case/cooling system when equal air cooling annex nice case can be had for half the price or less. A bit alike Koolance products in my humble opinion.

Nice job although I have to disagree on the performance been matched by air. At least with my OCed Opteron 165 (3ghz) it was able to beat my Scythe Ninja with a Delta Fan (136CMF and loud as hell) even at normal mode and low speed mode.
The price though is high but I got it cheaply as a local guy bought it to get the newegg rebate and then decided to sell it (got scared) essentially making it only $69 and he sold it to me fore $100...at the price, it was just a insane deal.
