Description

You have to know, i finished the main part of the build a year ago. Now i only shifted my components from an beQuiet SilentBase 600 to my modified Meshify C by Fractal Design. I added a lot of LED with the Phanteks Halo system to some new beQuiet Silent Wings 3. So i got very quiet but fancy looking case. I couldn't deal with all that nice hardware behind some cheap plastic . I wanted to see my hardware. So thats what i ended up with.

The use of this build was mainly for audio and video Editing. Therefore i needed the i7700k with great single-core performance. The Radeon 580 Nitro+ was a hot deal on black friday. And it worked very well for me. Its a smooth system and i can push it a bit with that huge amount of fans and the great airflow of the Meshify C.

Of course it was a bit tricky cause i had a lot of cables because i ignited the whole thing with a bunch of leds. But i'd never regret.

I sprayed with white and grey cans. Also i added some acrylic glass facing. So i got a place to hide my led stripe at the front and made the fans look nicer. I cutted the cover of the HD cage to fit the 3rd 120 cm fan into without removing the cover.

The RGB controller by Aqua Computer is placed in the hard drive cage.

If you have any questions, just ask me.

Part Reviews

Case

I love this case. I'm so glad Fractal made this one. The front is so different to standart cases. Also the airflow is great and everywhere are dustfilters. Cable management is just insane for such small case.. I couldn't believe that the side panel closed at first try! And i used a lot of cables.

BUT you have to know that the tempered glass panel is very darkened. If you want a bright and shiny case you won't be happy with this one. I prefer this dark one, because you can fill it up with led and your monitor is still the brightest thing on your desk.

To sum up, i can say that this is a very compact case with the best cost-performance ratio for me. Design and airflow combined for 60-70 bucks, with tempered glass, thats amazing.

Sound Card

Great soundcard! I even use it for working on my sounds/video. Not for recording of course, therefore i use an usb interface. If you change from onboard sound to this card, you will feel the music!

Case Fan

I bought this one to test it. I actually filled my built with beQuiet Silent Wing fans. But i gave it a try at the rear of my build. I think it is beside the small amount of noise a nice looking fan. So i have to say its a very good choice. Can't hear anything ! After brightening it up with Phanteks Halo system, i think its one of the best combos for a silent led fan.

Dude. Your paint job on the mesh is seriously top notch. The interior lighting is also awesome. Just great execution overall. Love this.

Can't tell if you painted the mesh with 2 colors or it's just an effect of the light hitting the mesh at different angles. What you did to the front and top mesh looks incredible. How did you paint it? What paint did you use?

Thank you! Yeah thats why i did this. It should look like light. Some reinforcement of the 3D mesh. I painted both with 2 different colours. Its signal white and a metallic grey. I used spray cans for automotive coating. They are very enduring and steady. To get those clean shapes, i covered everything besides the spots i wanted white / grey. So for 2 colours you have to cover it two times.

Damn that's a sexy build. Hard to work with an air cooler and make it look so good, but you pulled it off nicely. I've looked at almost every case out there, and I think for air cooling, if you want it to look as nice as possible, this is the way to go. If you haven't done so already, check out the new Cryorig RGB Ultra. It's not available yet, but will be soon.

Awesome PC! Interesting combo with the 7700k and the RX 580, how do you like the performance?

Thank you! Yes Performance is good! Of course a Radeon RX580 is not a 1080Ti but for me its okay :)

Yeah of course. You need to cover everything up besides the parts you want to have white / grey. After the paint is dry you do the same again with the other colour. Be carefull to use tape that does not destroys the paint you already applied on the mesh. Before painting clean the mesh with thinner. I learned spraying during my job so its hard to give you a short advice. You have to know a lot of things to get good results. So i recomend you to watch some tutorials. Or get help by experienced people.

Do you have an idea on which colors to use if i painted the mesh white and want to have the same effect as you?

  • 15 months ago
  • 1 point

you always have to think about light and shadow. grey /black / silver (not chrome ) ... with these colours you can create shady effect.

Great job! I’d love to ask a question.

How’d you fit the 3x120 fans in the front?

Did you have to remove the HD tray and part of the PSU shroud?

If so, did you have to do anything to hide your PSU cables?

Thanks!

  • 13 months ago
  • 2 points

Thanks! I had to cut the removable shroud above the HD tray. But there is still enough space for HD tray and PSU + cables. Of course you need a solid cable managment. I just took a common angle grinder and cutted the shroud a little bit. Repainted it and it looks as if it was out of the box.

How hard was it to paint the mesh? Awesome build.

  • 12 months ago

Thank you! Painting itself wasn't that hard. The taping was a pain in the ***. Because taping on a painted part can ruin it when you pull it off.

Is there any way that you can make a guide for the front panel paint? Because I can't decide between the Meshify C black or white, but this looks hella sick
