Up Close: Exterior
As you can see, the Meshify C is visually quite similar to the Define C, which in itself is no bad thing. The first big departure from the original case is the full height, and full width Tempered glass window. The window is held in place by four very subtle low profile finger bolts, which although initially a little tight, unscrewed quite easily.
The second difference between the cases is the redesigned case front, Rather than go for just a boring flat mesh panel, Fractal Design have used a press to mold in a added a triangular 3D effect to it, and we have to say we're really quite taken by it.
The only thing that does look a little out of place is the Chrome Fractal Badge on the front. We think it might have looked nicer with a dark Nickel, or even Matte and Gloss Black badge
The front I/O consists of a power, reset, Audio in/out and a pair of USB3.0s, which keep the appearance nice and uncluttered. What more could you want?
The roof has a magnetically attached mesh panel, which is easily removed for cleaning.
Underneath the mesh panel there are mount points for 240 or 280mm rads. We wonder if there's more room inside than the Define C had?
At the rear it's the standard ATX affair, with a slotted mounts for a 120mm fan only.
As the Meshify C has a false floor, the PSU is first attached to the rear place and then inserted into the rear (ahem)
The underside of the case reveals a full length nylon mesh filter which is easily removed via the front of the case. Now, this might seem like a biggy, but how many cases out there have the filter only removable via the rear, which let's be honest is a pain in the ass as you have to move the case away from the wall to access the area.
