Fractal Design Meshify C Review

If you've always wanted a high airflow version of the Define C, this might just be your lucky day.



Have a look at the Fractal Design Mishify C.

Damn it Fractal! You almost had me reaching for my wallet, what's with the low roof still!? Please add more space for ease of building and AIOs for high profile memory.

Is it too much to ask for Arc Midi R3?

I AGREE!!! I need those 2 x 5.25" external disc drives for DVD/Blu-Ray videos.

LOVE my windowed Fractal Design Arc Midi R2! Thinking of an AMD Ryzen build. Where is the R3?

I shoe-horned a Corsair 110i GTX into my R2 with only a very minor grind on a front protrusion of a 5.25" external bay support (if I recall correctly). Narrows down the rear exit fan location though, so I don't use it.

For cooling air intake, I have 3 x 140mm intake fans (2 front, 1 bottom), all unobstructed. For exhaust, I have 1 power supply 120mm exhaust fan, and 2 x 140mm push fans exhausting through rad.

Might be the first Fractal prodict that I don't like. My immediate thought was "Oh they have just stuck the Focus G front panel on a Define C." Not sold on the profiled mesh on the front, for a company that is knwon for clean elegant aestetics it seems very out of place.

The "Meshify" name is terrible too.

Ugliest case they've done I think especially considering how little if offers for the price. First FD product I am not a fan of.

If they could only bring back the Arc series...

I want to see it in person. When I first saw it I thought "Deus Ex Titan shield" and I think it would be really cool for a Deus Ex Mankind Divided Adam Jensen build. Bring on gold touches and carbon fiber.

Oh crap, I am talking myself into a build!!
