Fractal Design Meshify C Build

BoyScout

Aug. 9, 2017

Fractal Design announced their new Meshify C ATX mid-tower case today. The case includes a tinted tempered glass side panel and a full length metal mesh front panel with an angular design pattern that gives the Meshify C its own unique flair while allowing for maximum intake air flow at the front of the case.

Meshify C

To put the new case through its paces, we decided to assemble a $1500 (USD) gaming PC using ASRock's Z270 Taichi motherboard to help show it off. Check below for the complete part list and watch the video to see a bit more about the case and how our first build in it came together. Also be sure to check out our completed build write-up with benchmarks and more photos, as well as our cable management video.

A big thanks to Fractal Design for providing the case and ASRock for providing the motherboard for this build.

Tempered glass and mesh with filters? I could definitely start recommending this case. Hope they make Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX versions.

The entire YouTube is full of builds in this case. Fractal Design went a bit overboard with the presentation :) That being said, the case looks great.

It's so true, every tech tuber is doing reviews on it. But I think it's working, it's top of my list for my next build

Design is a bit boring, but I'm not complaining it looks like a solid choice for a case.

The CPU cooler is big. Everything other than that looks great.

Since when did a big CPU cooler = a bad thing? (so long as it fits)

I was saying that it is slightly obnoxious. I know that it fits and that it works. I personally have my mind set on AIO liquid cooling. Slimmer. More effective. Looks better.

obviously an AIO will look better and perform better than an H7 ahah. But the H7 remains the king of the low-budget fan coolers in terms of price, performance, installation, and reliability

That tinted glass makes me want to jump and get this case. That airflow is gonna be superb.

Really like the look of this case, especially the lack of wasted space that still manages to give enough room for bigger components. I'm very impressed.

I just hope they come out with the same case, but with a clear tempered glass panel and not one that's tinted.

It looks like it's currently out of stock, but we picked it up from Newegg.

I'm in the same boat, if you can wait then wait to at least see where the 8600k will sit at and price point. After tubers get there gaming benches out I will know myself if I am going R5 or CL.
