Description

The Fractal Design Meshify C was easy to build in. It gets great air flow and all my components are staying at optimal temps. I'm still overclocking the CPU/GPU so we'll see how the temps go from there.

awesome job! exactly what I would do if I had the funds to do a dream build.

Had no problems with cable management did you?

Not really, It got a little cramped, I'm waiting for my custom cablemod cables to come in, so that should cut down on the clutter.

That's great. I love the cable Mods website.

You're the only build in this case I've seen with a top mounted rad. Do you think a slim 280mm AIO would fit on the top? Kraken X62, H115i etc. I believe that height is similar between your Fractal S24 AIO and those, but I just can't tell if it will fit with the wider footprint without interfering with the mobo/RAM.

I'm putting together a build for my son in the same Meshify case, Asus Strix Z270E mobo and same G.Skill Trident Z RGB RAM as you. Trying to figure out if the 280's will fit or if I need to drop down to 240 rad. Putting the rad at the drop would be ideal to have more clearance for the graphics card, which I'm guessing is what prompted you to do the same. Thanks in advance!

No theres no room for a 280, just stick to a 240 and you'll be fine. I couldn't fit my 1080 ti and a rad in the front, there's just not enough room

Thank you for saving me the headache!

I knew it was going to be really close as reviews have mentioned anything over 40mm board height would start causing conflicts with top mounted rads and the RAM is listed at 44mm. I can't tell exactly from your pics but would guess the smaller width of the 240's allow you to offset it enough to clear?

The case has offset mounting points so you can mount the rad closer to the glass so it clears the ram.

You couldn't have been more right, we built it yesterday and with the 240 Corsair rad up top there isn't a credit card's clearance between it and the G.Skill ram, even with the rad pulled as close to the glass side as possible within the mounting channels. 280 would have been impossible.

Good call!

Hey, sorry to hijack this comment thread - but I'm looking to build a PC in this meshify case, and am worried about this same thing. I want to top-mount an x52 rad, but am worried the RAM will not clear. I know you said you got yours to work, but I'm looking at getting the Asrock Taichi z370 motherboard, which looks like the ram may be even closer to the top of the mobo than the mobo you guys used. Which mobo did you use? Is there ANY additional room for RAM or no?

Update: I just got done overclocking the CPU. It's stable at 3.9 GHz at 1.352V. Next is the graphics card :)

Congrats, very nice build! I have read reviews on that 6TB HDD you got has a high failure rate because I was looking at getting one for my build, any problems so far?

Nothing bad so far, but I just got it

Nice build. Even without the cable mods, it's still a clean build. I'm starting to like the darker glass more and more - the Cougar Panzer is also a darker tint. The problem is, the tapered the base on the Panzer makes it too unstable for my liking.

Would love to see two more RGB fans up front, to see how they show through the front mesh. That's what I'm thinking of adding to my build. Also hoping my board allow me to mount the CPU cooler up top so I can maximize airflow from the front of the case.

Congrats on the build.

I have a very similar setup and same mobo, where did you plug the AIO fan into it? Pump Header or CPU header?

You having good luck with changing the color on the ram. What speed are you at?

It's really quiet, I can barely hear it at full load.

Hi, did you use a HUE hub for the fans? Or where did you plug them? Thanks!

  • 27 months ago

Yeah you have to use the hue hub

  • 26 months ago

Around 30c on idle and I've never seen it get above 60c on load, and that with it overclocked to 3.9 at 1.375 volts

great work! I was wondering if it would fit using the watercooler in the front of case with that video card?

  • 26 months ago

No the video card is too long for the rad to fit in the front

I love the case, will be picking one up myself, along with the same RAM. But I'm having second thought about the RGB fans, the NZXT Aer RGB120's. They look a little bulky on the side?

Either way, this is one nice build and will keep coming back to look at this build until I build my own one.

Have you been able to pick it up if so what do you think on the tempered glass I feel as if it is to tinted?

  • 24 months ago

I ended up picking up the Phanteks P300. Half the price, and still has the RGB integration and Tempered Glass. Will be picking up some white phanteks fans along with the Halos RGB attachments for each.

Can you sync the fans rgb with the RAM rgb?

If you're doing a static color, then yeah but they use different software

How are the temps after overclocking. I'm wanting the x62 and the new high c, but that'll require me to ditch 2 140mm fans I just bought.

  • 24 months ago

Temps are pretty cool, I havent seen it get above 55C

i know people have already asked you this question about a radiator in the front..about to buy this case and i got the strix 1080(about the same length as yours) and h100i v2..do you think i could make it fit in the front if i used 120x120x15mm or 20mm slim fan?

  • 23 months ago
  • 1 point

Probably not, but you can always you the rad on the top

  • 22 months ago

That's an interesting angle to place the pump. The coldplate channels may not be 100% aligned with the CPU die at that angle so you could see a small performance improvement if the pump is perpendicular to the CPU rather than at an angle.

PLEASE HELP:

You have Trident Z RGB Memory, which is 44mm... RIGHT?

But you mounted your AIO at the TOP!?

ON FRACTAL DESIGNS WEBSITE IT SAYS THAT YOU CAN'T HAVE A RADIATOR AT THE TOP WITH TALLER THAN 40mm stuff?!?!

Could you elaborate?

http://prntscr.com/jjxbkv

Which one of these is the case? On the second one, there is room for a thicker radiator, but on the first one, the RAM is stopping the radiator if it were to be thicker.

What monitor is that?

Because once both CPU and GPU are overclocked, TDP becomes more like 650. And you should never get "just enough" watts, always overkill :)

  • 27 months ago

Because it was cheap and I wanted an 850

I'm curious about the darkness of the glass as well. I love the meshify design, but I'd like to see more pictures of the tinted glass.
