So, "new" case from Fractal Design.

http://www.fractal-design.com/home/prod ... /meshify-c

I really like the look of the front. Not sure how it performs on a silent front though, maybe nicely with some slow rpm-fans? But why, oh why, everything is glass sidepanel nowadays?

Tempered Glass/Acrylic side panels seem to be one of the current fashions in case design, along with PSU shrouds and magnetic dust filters. Part of the reason may be the current vogue for everything RGB including not only fans but motherboards, graphic cards and PSUs. Obviously there is little point in all these visual enhancements (?) unless they are on display. However some of the trends such as PSU shrouds do have their positives, getting a tidy looking build is somewhat easier as the shroud hides not only the power cables but also the drives mounts and cables that are normally at the rear of the shroud.

In the UK the Meshify C will retail at around £80 which is reasonable. However, its chief competition in this price bracket will probably come from cases such as the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Window Edition, which with its 140mm fans is probably a better performer cooling wise than the Meshify C.

Right on trend, on the same day as the Meshify C announcement Phanteks say that a Special Edition of the Enthoo Pro M Window case is coming featuring a white interior plus two front mounted RGB fans.

Interesting description they have: "Like black diamond facets, the angular asymmetry..."
To me the shapes way more than "facets" resemble the Swedish M90 camouflage pattern, which would only be logical since Fractal is a Swedish company.
Instead of tempered glass they could have made the entire side also meshed that way.

There is no sound absorbing properties in the Meshify C, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NV07IVhIFes

Fractal's new Meshify and Focus G line of cases is aimed more at "Gaming & DIY PC build" crowd.

You're much better off with Define R5 for building a silent rig.
