MESH Elite Mini Gaming OC Review

Mmm white. We know a member of the team who'll be salivating at this very moment. Always a difficult thing to photograph, and shiny white even more so. The Elite is extremely well packaged with lots of high-density foam and sturdy cardboard keeping it protected during its brief journey from London to your home.
Included in the package is the Toshiba external drive for all your optical disk needs. It speaks volumes for how quickly media has moved towards the digital format with Steam and Netflix et al that an optical drive is very much an optional extra these days. Round the back of the Elite Mini Gaming OC are the regular connection options of the MSI Z87i Gaming, which includes WiFi, and the big exhaust port which helps keep the CPU cool. Our review sample didn't include the wireless antenna but thankfully the LAN port is plenty fast enough.
The internals in a case of this size are always going to be extremely cramped so we're definitely not going to complain about any cable routing issues. After all, where would you hide them? Even with these limitations the graphics card and CPU socket are kept clear to ensure maximum cooling efficiency.
