Today’s short text introduces you to a case that can score with simple elegance and good cooling performance: the Fractal Design Meshify 2 Compact. It is the successor of the already known Meshify series of the Swedish premium manufacturer. How it does in the practical installation and conversion, you will learn today.
The scope of delivery includes everything classic for a case in this price range. A small box with all kinds of screws for power supply, mainboard, as well as cable ties, decoupling rubbers are included. Nothing earth-shattering, but present. First, let’s look at the manufacturer’s exploded view, then comes the overall artwork:
The case measures 42 cm x 20.5 cm x 47.5 cm and thus plays on average in the league of ordinary midi-towers. Striking, as well as characteristic for the Meshify series of Fractal Design, is the perforated plate in 3D optics drawn over the complete front, which initially gave the product line its name. The front panel resists mechanical stresses very well and looks well constructed, fitted and not cheap due to the choice of fine meshes. First of all, of course, the brief presentation of the closed exterior…
… and then immediately the inside without its own wire casing:
Rattling, crunching or similar noises, which indicate a lack of manufacturing or construction, can be found here in vain. The front section is positively locked to the chassis by a frame also made of metal, whereby the assembly forces to be applied are within a comfortable range. The hinge mechanism is new here. The easy-to-replace dust filter for the front fans is also securely and firmly in place. The left side panel is tempered glass and has been finished with black opaque glare strips on the top and bottom.
First of all, here is an overview of the technical data:
And now, once again, from the manufacturer’s point of view, all the key information in the PDF:Meshify-2-_Product-Sheet_EN
