Perfect Evolution from the C

Fractal Design Meshify 2 Compact White ATX Flexible High-Airflow Tempered Glass Window Mid Tower Computer Case
Fractal Design Meshify 2 Compact White ATX Flexible High-Airflow Tempered Glass Window Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Easy to mod for any layout you want. Easy removable sides Front panel completely removable. Top is removable to easily attach fans/radiator. Easily supports 360mm AIO

Cons: None really.

Overall Review: I had the original Meshify C, the black one, and bought a Meshify 2 to upgrade and add a 360 AIO. When I got the new case I upgraded the wife to a new MB, CPU and RAM. I liked the Meshify C so it was recycled for her new build. It looked great and would have lasted her until I decided to upgrade her again. I decided a white case and a PSU with RGB would be a nice upgrade to the white AIO and fans. I really wanted to build in the Meshify 2 C after doing my build in the Meshify 2. I love the improvements over the previous C. Being able to take the top off and attach the radiator is just one of many improvements over what I thought was a great case. Overall, I would highly recommend Fractal cases. I also have a vertical GPU mount from Fractal and it's a solid product as well. My original C case will be my adult son's new case later this week. We're becoming a Fractal family.

Great Look

LIAN LI STRIMER PLUS 24 Pins  + 8 Pins Addressable RGB Power Extension Cables Combo --Strimer Plus Combo
LIAN LI STRIMER PLUS 24 Pins + 8 Pins Addressable RGB Power Extension Cables Combo --Strimer Plus Combo

Pros: Fairly easy to install Looks Amazing Made the wife happy

Cons: Pretty stiff at first

Overall Review: I decided to upgrade my wife's computer to my old i7-37770. While moving to my older Meshify C I decided to do a full upgrade for my wife. I went with a Ryzen 5 5600G and ASUS TUF Gaming B550 MB in the Meshify C to start with. I decided to upgrade the case to the Meshify 2 C in white and added a NZXT Kraken X-53 RGB white as well. I bought Lian Li UniFans for the front and rear. I also bought her the Corsair Vengence RGB Pro. I figured I was going all out with the RGB and I wanted these. These popped up as a Shell Shocker deal and I jumped on them. As for installation, these are very easy to install. Make sure to loosen the string so you can bend these how you want them. The software for the UniFans and these made setup pretty easy as well. I don't know if I'd buy these for my build, but I absolutely love them in the wife's. If you are trying to decide on getting these, I would get them. They add that extra bit of excitement to your PC.

Great Fans and Awesome Looks

Pros: Easy to install Great Looking RGB Great Cooling in Meshify 2 C

Cons: None that prevented me from really liking these fans

Overall Review: I'd been wanting to buy these fans since they came out in 2020. I'd just completed my build and decided to upgrade the wife's computer with my old i7-3770 and Meshify C. I'd bought the Meshify 2 and decided to upgrade my wife to the Meshify 2 C. I love both the Meshify 2 and the Meshify 2 C. Both great cases. I decided to go all out with the LEDs and wanted a white case. I purchased the NZXT Kraken X-53 white to go with it so I wanted some white fans as well. I'd been really wanting to buy the Uni Fans and figured this was a great place for them. I have the three in the front and one 120mm for the rear exhaust. They work great, look fantastic and keep the wife's case nice and cool. I would highly recommend these fans, especially when they are on sale. I will definitely buy these again when I'm ready for another build.

Wish It Came with the Case

Fractal Design Flex B-20 PCIe 3.0 x16 Vertical GPU Riser with Bracket, FD-A-FLX1-001
Fractal Design Flex B-20 PCIe 3.0 x16 Vertical GPU Riser with Bracket, FD-A-FLX1-001

Pros: Fits perfectly in my Fractal Design Meshify 2. Super easy to put together and install the mount. GPU fit perfectly. PCIe cable is the perfect length and rigidity. Seller had the best price and it arrived within a week. Not bad with the current state of tech.

Cons: Had to purchase separately. Very limited stock at the time I purchased it.

Overall Review: I bought this mount for my Meshify 2 and EVGA 3070. I had originally installed my NZXT X73 with the tubes down and it caused the card to really sag. I ended up flipping the tubes up, but the sag stayed. I just bought my wife a white Meshify 2 C and was looking at the accessories and saw the GPU mount. This is my first vertical mount and I wasn't sure how I'd like the look. With my current build it really makes it look clean. I can't imagine not having a vertical mount for any future builds if the case allows it. Since the mount is made for the Fractal cases it was a breeze to install. Popped out the screws and covers and the mount slid in perfectly. I'm really impressed with the quality and compatibility of Fractal products. I currently have the Meshify 2 and the Meshify C in use in my house. I have a Meshify 2 C coming this week to upgrade my wife's Meshify C. With the quality of these cases and the ease of use of the accessories, Fractal has a customer for life. I also rated the seller five eggs for having it, the price and getting it here in a reasonable time.

New PSU to go with the New GPU

EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G5, 80 Plus Gold 850W, Fully Modular, Eco Mode with FDB Fan, 10 Year Warranty, Includes Power ON Self Tester, Compact 150mm Size, Power Supply 220-G5-0850-X1
EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G5, 80 Plus Gold 850W, Fully Modular, Eco Mode with FDB Fan, 10 Year Warranty, Includes Power ON Self Tester, Compact 150mm Size, Power Supply 220-G5-0850-X1

Pros: Modular 80+ Gold Plenty of power for my build Quiet

Cons: None

Overall Review: It's an EVGA PSU. Very easy to install and quiet. I was upgrading to a 3070 and only had a 600W PSU so I decided to get this. I guess the best thing I can say about it is that I don't think about it. It works, doesn't make noise, and powers everything. I replaced some of my cables with Cablemod cables, but I was 100% satisfied with the quality of the braided cables. I've been using EVGA PSUs for years and see no reason to change.

The Perfect Size

Fractal Design Meshify 2 Gray ATX Flexible Light Tinted Tempered Glass Window Mid Tower Computer Case
Fractal Design Meshify 2 Gray ATX Flexible Light Tinted Tempered Glass Window Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Love the massive amount of space and versatility this case has. NZXT Kraken X73 fits perfectly front mounted. Very similar to the Meshify C, but bigger. Fits my EVGA 3070 with more than enough space to store spare parts.. Great cable management options. Many, many options for fan placement. The gray is a nice change.

Cons: It would be nice to have a screw to secure the plastic panel on the back side. It took multiple attempts to get it to stay in place. (Part of that was my cable management skill)

Overall Review: I absolutely loved my Meshify C. I decided on the Meshify 2 based on the build quality of the Meshify C and the OUTSTANDING customer service from Fractal. When I purchased the Meshify C the glass broke when I removed it from the case. They immediately responded and sent me a new glass. I'm extremely happy with this case. I'd purchased the Kraken X73 AIO a while ago and planned to install it in the Meshify C. I'm sure it would've fit, but I think it would be very tight. Since I wanted to install the X73 I decided to purchase a new case. For me it was a no brainer. I really like the C and I didn't look at many other cases. Now that I've completed the switch, I'm glad this is the case I bought. As stated above, the versatility of this case is really the selling point. I was able to front mount the rad and fans by taking out the HD cage. I only have nvme and ssds so no need for the 3.5" mounts. I'm not using the built in fan controller, but it seems fairly straight forward. I'm also not using the fans that came with it because I bought the non-rgb version. When I bought the AIO I wasn't planning to use any rgb fans. I've since changed my mind. I may put the NZXT fans in my wife's new, to her, Meshify C case. If you want a case that allows for a 360 AIO, this is a great one. I know this case isn't cheap, but you really do get what you pay for.

Right Item at the BEST Price

I bought a Fractal Design Flex B-20 PCIe 3.0 x16 Vertical GPU Riser with Bracket to go in my FD Meshify 2. The item arrived as expected, albeit with a light coat of dust. Which I chuckled at. The best part is this seller had the mount at the cheapest price. My only complaint is being too dependent on two day or less delivery. It took about a week, but the anticipation was worth it. Quicker shipping would be a plus. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from this seller again and recommend them based on my experience.
