Original configuration: I've been using a Ryzen 7 1700x with a single GTX 1080 for most of this year in the Meshify C case with a only minor aesthetics, but I decided to take advantage of different sales and the RTX launch to scale up to SLI for something a bit more powerful.
Meshify Fit issues: Starting with the Meshify C by Fractal, I immediately had fit issues. The case is slim, so long cards like the Strix will conflict with front-mounted rads. While the Meshify C fits top-mounted rads as exhaust at up to 240mm, if you have a Gigabyte Mobo, it won't fit either (RAM clearance becomes an issue due to how far north Gigabyte puts their RAM modules vs how low they are on ASUS motherboards). I decided on a 140mm NZXT x42 for purely aesthetic reasons (a Corsair 140mm cooler would have been a much more economic choice) and cools my Ryzen 7 with no issue.
2018 Strix GTX 1080 SLI upgrade: Following the launch of RTX cards, second-hand GTX cards have become more affordable. I decided to pick up a second Asus Strix GTX 1080 to add to my existing build. The Meshify C fits 2 Strix cards in SLI very well. Because there is enough height in the meshify C, I was able to put a 140mm fan directly in front of the cards. I went with Noctua primarily for sound. .
Overclocking: I easily achieved 3000Mhz on the TridenZ RAM with the Gigabyte K5a bios updates. The 1700x will reach 3.9Ghz at a comfortable voltage, but 4.0Ghz simply isn't stable. The Strix 1080s are overclocked to 112%
RGB: The fans are NZXT RGB Aer 120 fans (running off of a Hue+) so they can be controlled by the NZXT CAM software with the Kraken. I have had no conflicts of CAM with Asus Aura lighting or with G.Skills software, everything seems to working as intended. The RGB bridge is the Asus ROG RGB bridge, which I went with purely due to matching aesthetics. The photos unfortunately do not do the build justice....
Peripherals: The keyboard and mouse are both Logitech. The Logitech G Pro keyboard is perfect for small desks and the Romer G switches feel excellent. I picked up the G403 Wireless (which I don't believe is made anymore), and is identical to the current G407. Contrary to marketing, the G403 has the same wireless technology and indentation underneath for upgrades. As such, it works great with the Logitech Powerplay wireless charging mat.
Cables: The cables are custom, check out eBayer pntpcs, who did an amazing job on them. With a minor correction to the parts list, I recently changed out the 650W power supply and swapped in a 750W Corsair PS for the additional wattage overhead.
