Fractal Design Meshify C Review

Fractal Design Meshify C 

Up Close:  Interior rear

Well, this looks familiar!  OK, for those of you unfamiliar with the Define C we'll run through things anyway.  To begin with the rear area is well thought out and split on to two levels.  The main cable routing channel is towards the front of the case and is deeper than the rest of the interior.

The main area has 20mm of cable management space, which is plenty.  There are also o good number of well spaced cable tie points back here to make your job easier.

Towards the front the space on offer deepens to some 35mm which brings a nice broad smile to our faces.

Along with cable tie points Fractal have included 3 velco style loops along the main cable track.  As you can see, this track runs directly alongside the angled cable management holes.

The silk black plate is removable via a single thumb bolt to aid CPU cooler mounting, and can be used to accommodate up to three 2.5" drives.

There's plenty of PSU space on offer, with the unit inserted from the rear via a mounting bracket.  Once in place, the PSU sits on foam rubber isolation pads.

Also on the lower deck we find a small HDD rack which has just two drawers.  With modern HDDs having astronomical storage capabilities, and the increasing use of the cloud, we feel this is fine.

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.Quote

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.Quote

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...Quote
