At Fractal Design, we see the arrival of two new cases designed to accommodate your configuration. The brand announces its Meshify 2 Lite and Meshify 2 RGB, two new versions of the original model.
Meshify 2 RGB: The most complete of the two!
The RGB model turns out to be the most complete version of the two. We already start with the storage part where the brand clearly emphasizes. Indeed, as a basic model, it will be possible to store up to six 3.5″/2.5″ and two 2.5″ units. Nevertheless, we have 14 positions in total for the first and four for the second.
Then, the equipment is not left out either, this declination embeds a Nexus 2 fan hub. On it we can connect up to six non-PWM fans and three more in PWM. Velcro straps are still present, as well as cable guides on the back of the motherboard tray.
Finally, for the graphics card, we have two vertical expansion slots to highlight its GPU. And on the ventilation side, this model comes with four Aspect 14 RGB fans whose lighting can be controlled from the front, via a dedicated button.
Meshify 2 Lite: a more basic version!
With this lite version, you can forget everything that the RGB model offers. Thus, the fan hub, the vertical PCIe slots, etc., are omitted. Nevertheless, we still find a case measuring 240 (W) x 542 (D) x 474 (H) mm.
Inside, there will be room for a motherboard in E-ATX format (28.5 cm wide max). For the GPU and fans, we have 450 mm and 185 mm respectively. On the power supply side, we can count on 250 mm of depth.
The ventilation can accommodate up to nine fans in 120/140 mm. Moreover, this model comes with three mills Aspect 14 or four Aspect 14 RGB in its RGB version. And for watercooling, you can install 360 mm radiators at the top and in front. At the bottom, a 240 mm model will be enough, compared to a 120 mm model at the back.
Finally, the storage part has two 3.5″/2.5″ slots in the power supply cover, via an HDD cage. Finally, two 2.5″ boards are also present.
Note also that if velcro strips are part of the game, it is not the case of cable guides.
To afford one of these models, you’ll have to spend a pretty penny. Indeed, the Lite model is already trading 175 € on LDLC against 210 € the Lite RGB. However, we’ll have to wait a little longer to see the RGB version arrive in stores.
