With so many PC Cases getting released in the last quarter of 2011 i will soon need to buy a larger warehouse to place them all in, that or i will get to sleep with some of them (hey i am still single so why not?). Joking aside the fact that we have indeed received far too many PC Cases lately from most manufacturers in the field means 2 things. First of all that they are getting ready for the holiday season by rolling out every single product in their arsenal and second that you will have an even harder time choosing the ideal product for your needs (but a much wider selection which is a good thing). Today we will be taking a look at perhaps the most cost-effective PC Case manufactured by BitFenix, the Merc Alpha.
Focused on combining superior design with the latest advances in technology, BitFenix creates state-of-the-art computer hardware and peripherals that blur the line between man and machine. Users shouldn't have to adjust themselves to the way their hardware works. So, we strive to put the user in complete control of his hardware, so that it functions as an extension of his will, and not as another variable he has to compensate for.

No matter how taxing the situation, users can rely on the strength of BitFenix products to perform as they are intended. Finally, BitFenix is about performance.

The Merc Alpha is one of those PC Cases that most people like me will take a fast glimpse at and move along, not because it's not good looking but because it's a midi tower and because you can't really call it a complete PC Case since it comes with a single 120mm rear exhaust fan right from the factory. On the other hand for most people on a tight budget the Merc Alpha could be considered as godsend since quite frankly there aren't that many cases in the market around that price point and with the same range of features (although most do come with 2 or more preinstalled fans). Anyways since seeing is believing let's continue with our in-depth look on the latest Merc Alpha Midi Tower by BitFenix.
