Who knows the cases of the Swedish manufacturer Fractal Design, knows that these come in a rather simple design and with always useful and meaningful functions. This gives rise to the assumption that Fractal places a higher value on functions than on design. In our opinion, this concept is also quite desirable, because what is there to do with a stylish case, which in the end does not serve its purpose well? In addition, the minimalist design of most Fractal cases definitely hits a nerve with PC builders who prefer it simple and simple.
The Fractal Design Meshify C is the bridge between design and functionality and is the first midi tower of a new series. In addition to functions that make sense and are well thought-out, it offers a large side window made of tempered glass and a unique front panel made of mesh that not only lets a lot of air into the housing, but also optically breaks new ground with a 3D diamond design. In this test you will find out whether this compact housing with glass window and modern front is convincing.
Scope of Delivery
The Fractal Design Meshify C arrives safely packed and comes with numerous accessories, some of which are obligatory and some useful. In addition to black lacquered screws for the mainboard, power supply and drives, the scope of delivery includes instructions for the various assembly steps, six practical cable ties for arranging the cables and a microfiber cloth for removing fingerprints from the hard glass side window. It is interesting to note that the very dark tempered glass window is not particularly sensitive to fingerprints. Nevertheless, someone has thought along here and enclosed a suitable cloth for the case of the cases.
Dust filters are of course also on board, but they are already installed in the ground and in the front. It would have been desirable to have a separate, closed panel next to the mesh magnet grid on the lid, so that this opening could be completely closed. This technology is known as “ModuVent” from the previous Fractal Design housings. This would certainly have improved the insulating qualities of the housing even further.
