Bitfenix Merc Alpha Case Review

The Front and Top Panels
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The front panel of the Bitfenix Merc Alpha has a very sober look, with three external 5.25” bays and one external 3.5” bay, using solid covers. There is an air intake mesh at the bottom. This case, however, is the first one we’ve ever seen that doesn’t support a fan on its front panel.

The top panel, on the other hand, supports two 120 mm fans. On the Merc Beta, which is another case from Bitfenix based on the same platform, the top panel is solid.

The case comes with four USB 2.0 ports, but no USB 3.0 ports. They are located on the front part of the top panel.
