Hello All! Come on in, and watch your step. Here is the "Black Hole."

 My computer has gotten some new shoes for the new decade of 2020. I have had most of these parts since 2018 and finally ready to make another big change. Going from an ITX case, to an ATX case, we are finally making its way  to a Micro ATX case, The Meshify C Mini Dark Tempered Glass. This case has been on my list of favorite cases for a while now by also being a mini version of its predecessor. This case is the perfect size for my current ITX motherboard and mainly for my 360mm AIO. I wasn’t too sure if the Corsair H150 Pro would even fit, as I was told that only full ATX version supports it. Luckily, I read someone elses online forum saying that it could fit with some minor modifications, but no pictures or explanation were there. So, I took out my wallet through it at my monitor, crossed my fingers, and took a risk by purchasing The Meshify C Mini Dark Tempered Glass.

 With the case being 399mm in height and the length of the radiator being 396mm, I was pretty sure it was going to fit. Especially with the front panel I/O having a small gap, but I was wrong... REALLY wrong. I forgot to take into account the small caved in hump on the fan vents for the top and bottom, which reduces the height of the inner case by about 4-6mm. There is a perfect gap for the radiator between the fan vents and the front part of the case, but getting it there was the challenging part. Assuming what the person on the forum did, I figured they may have just did some cutting. But someone lazy like me, I just went full caveman and basically forced it in. I should have taken my time aligning the radiator properly before forcing it into place because although it fits in between the gap, the radiator corners needed to be aligned in a way that keeps it from getting stuck in the screw hole gaps on the fan vents. Which cause it to bend the hole and keep it from going in between the gap. Once aligned, their are two obsticles for the radiator to slide in perfectly. The first part is the hump from the fan vent, which I was able to get the radiator past by applying enough forced pressure with my hands. You will here and feel it slide into place, which should be the front of the case, but it wasn't. Which is the second part. There is a very small thin piece of metal halfway towards the front wall of the case keeping the radiator from being flushed against front of the case. I got passed it by using my foot and forced it past the thin piece of metal. Another slight popping sound and voilà, it fits! No cutting, no hassle! And it surprisingly fits perfectly in between the gap. It has a tight snug so no screws are needed as I needed to position the radiator more towards the left side in order to leave enough gap for the front I/O, mainly so the USB 3.0 wires can fit and fully shut the front panel (as shown in the pictures).

 The rest of the parts were straight foward. I was able to fit in a full size ATX power supply (170mm), the hard drive cage that sits perfectly flush against the AIO fans with no interference, and a NZXT G12 GPU to CPU Kit dualed with a Corsair H55 120mm AIO for the GTX 1070. All in all, I am very pleased with my new case and will be using it for a very long time. Thank you for your time.

Does the motherboard have a USB C header?

It does not. There is only a USB 3.1 Gen 1 header that supports 2 USB 3.1 (5Gbps Speeds). Although there is a USB 3.1 Gen 2 USB-C Port on the rear I/O.
