  • Fractal Design Meshify C Mid-Tower Chassis Review

    Conclusion The Meshify C, rightfully names, and the front of the chassis is made of mesh, but mesmerizes you, almost mystifies you, as you stare at it longer and longer, taking in all the angles of the triangular shapes. The chassis is solid, and even with both panels off and the HDD cage removed, it does not lose that fact. We are on the fence about the tint level used, but we do like the tempered glass side; at least it isn't so dark to blot out the product LEDs as some cases do. Removable and modular parts are always appreciated, and the new SSD tray, removable HDD cage, and removable panel in the PSU shroud are all things that open the Meshify C to new things. Cooling inside is sufficient with just two pre-installed fans, and from a foot away, the noise from this chassis is hardly noticeable. Everything has its place, all can be installed without random issues complicating things, and outside of one tiny problem we ran into, the Meshify C is one of the better built, original looking mid-tower cases we have seen in a long time.  The "tiny" problem" we ran into is a simple fix and may be an issue for the pre-release samples only. As of yet, after reporting the issue to Fractal Design, we have not heard back, but we know they are fully aware of this. The USB 3.0 cable from the front I/O can be too short. If using older hardware, or your USB 3.0 port on the motherboard is at the bottom of it, the connection of the cable is impossible. Those of you using newer motherboards, or older designs with the USB 3.0 port on the right of the motherboard, you are good to go, whether this issue is addressed or not. Something to keep in mind.  While we did like the magnetized top dust filter, and the slide-out-the-front PSU dust filter, the padding in the front of the case is complicated to remove, and since the wires are attached to the bezel, it makes it hard to rinse it under the faucet. To get this pair of issues, we are picking it apart for the second issue, while the first issue presented itself during the build process, we still feel they are things which can be handled as long as you know up front. Even if the Meshify C wasn't this attractive, even if it were more complicated in the build process, even if the tempered glass wasn't offered, the solidity of the chassis at this price is well worth the investment. The thing is though; you do get a smooth build process is a wide-open interior, there is tempered glass on the left, as well as modularity and a new drive mounting plate behind the motherboard tray. You get Velcro loops to bunch the wires, and decent airflow without all the noise. If not for a couple of inconsistencies, we could have given the Meshify straight one-hundreds in the chart. However, at just $89.99 to obtain the Meshify C Mid-Tower Chassis from Fractal Design, we still feel that you cannot go wrong investing your hard-earned dollars in this product.  Chad's Chassis Test System Specifications Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD4-B3CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K (buy from Amazon)Cooler: Corsair H80i GT (buy from Amazon)Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws F3-12800CL6D-4GBXHVideo Card: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 AMP.

    Fractal Design Meshify C Review

    This isn't going to be a massive conclusion.  After all you probably already know how much we liked the Define C, and as the Meshify C shares the same chassis there's little more to say about it that hasn't been said already, instead we're simply going to focus on the differences between the two cases.

    First up, as the name suggests the Meshify C has a rigid mesh front.  Rather than being a single flat sheet though, the designers over at Fractal have molded it into a triangular geometric 3D form.  I'd imagine that they considered doing this a bit of a risk to the sleek aesthetic, but to be honest we think it works, and we mean really works, and is an example of great design "meshing" perfectly with the engineering need.  The one thing that does look a little out of place though is the Bright shiny Fractal Design badge.  We're thinking a matte Black badge with Gloss writing or something similar might have looked better, but as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    The second difference is that rather than a solid side panel or an acrylic window, the Meshify C has a full height and full width Tempered glass side panel.  The panel is attached via four low profile thumb bolts and has quite a dark smoke to it.  You should note that the panel is not compatible with the standard define C case due to the way it aches, but we're sure if enough of you shout about it Fractal may look into making an adapter kit to retro fit to standard cases.

    The last thing we'll say is that if you like the look of the tempered glass window, but don't like the front, or feel you need the higher airflow it offers, then all is not lost, as Fractal are also releasing a Tempered glass panel version of the standard Define C

    As to Awards, well the Define C has already received our Innovation award, and We think that with the improvements made the Meshify C can take home a well deserved "Exceptional Aesthetics" award.  Well done Fractal, well done.
