Description

New build after using my previous build for over 4 years. Meshify C is a bit smaller than I anticipated when building in it in person. Went with RGB components with a bit of overkill on the RAM. Amazing airflow with the Meshify with my i7 7700k running stock with temps around 60 degrees while gaming. The RTX 2080 XC has had zero issues and runs around 66 degrees while gaming with fans running at 60%. Have noticed the Corsair LL fans get a bit loud when running 1200 rpm or more. May be due to the openness of the Meshify.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Does a great job keeping the temps low on my i7 7700k. Software is easy to use and easy to monitor temps and fans.

Video Card

Runs great and performs extremely well. Runs around 66 degrees with fans running at 60% on standard fan curve.

Case Fan

Perform well and RGB is breathtaking. iCue is a breeze and allows easy configuration and monitoring.

Simply amazing...

Thank you!

Absolutely beautiful. One of my favorite color combos, which I feel can so easily be done in bad taste. But you have done a fine job with this build.

xamishmanx submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Thanks! Really appreciate your feedback. I like how easy it is to customize the RGB with numerous effects and endless configurations.

Thanks for pointing that out, I thought I may have overlooked it.

Nice build, it looks amazing. Though why the 7700K, why not go with something more modern like a 2700X, 8700K, or like a 9700K?

I'm just taking a guess, but from the part list total, the submitter may have had a budget of $3500. Again, just a guess.

xamishmanx submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Great question, I need to update my build date, this project started about a year ago when the 7700k was new on the market.

Did you screw in your GPU? It looks like it has a lot of sag

xamishmanx submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Yeah it is screwed in, the rtx 2080 is a heavy card, it is actually shorter in length compared to my previous 1070, yet is much thicker.

How is the MSI GAMING M7 motherboard to work with and performance? I just picked one up and planning to swap out current MOBO. Honestly, i grabbed it for the aesthetics.

xamishmanx submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

I love this motherboard and have very little to complain about. You should be more than happy with the aesthetics on this board, my only complaint is the lack of colors and affects with the RGB software. The performance has been great, I love the BIOS and the ability to overclock with ease. I wish it had 1 more USB 2.0 header for my WiFi/Bluetooth adapter.

And clean build, btw.

Thank you!

So do you think with that 280 mounted in the front your graphics card gets cool enough? Personally I'm planning on getting 2 of these same rtx cards in same case but am worried about getting a 120 rad or 280.

Depends on your case. The meshify c has space for a 120mm fan in the pus shroud, which does bring in some fresh air through the bottom and doesn't go through the radiator.
