The Fractal Design Meshify C is a compact ATX-case that does exactly what Fractal Design promises: it offers excellent cooling performance. The noise levels are decent while doing so. When comparing this case with other ATX-cases of up to 92 pounds / 100 euros, the Meshify C is one of the best in terms of cooling performance while the noise levels are above average as well.
In terms of design the case succeeded in our opinion. The mesh front panel with angular asymmetry gives the case a unique aesthetic, while the glass side panel is an eye-catcher. Aside from that it is a fairly basic case made of black anodized steel. It is compact, but nevertheless it offers room for a lot of fans and / or radiators for water cooling. The only point that we truly lose out on in comparison with bigger cases is 3.5 inch drives. You can fit two and when using a 360mm radiator there is only room for a single 3.5 inch position. On the other hand, you do always have three 2.5 inch positions at your disposal.
The MSRP of 82.40 pounds / 89.99 euros is slightly high in our opinion, but if the actual price ends up at about 73 pounds / 80 euros the case is in a good place compared with the competitors. All in all the Fractal Design Meshify C is an excellent choice if you are looking for a compact case that offers excellent cooling performance. In terms of functionality and installation possibilities it is comparable with the Corsair Carbide 400C which is quite a bit more expensive. That case received an Excellent Choice award, which is also definitely applicable for the Meshify C.
