    Fractal Design Meshify 2

    Define 7 gets the Meshify treatment.

    I really like the look of this case, and the cooling performance seems excellent, but I feel that the Define 7 makes more sense, as it still offers great cooling, while also still offering good acoustics. It's nice to have a choice anyway!

    Would be good to see a coolermaster case added to the test comparison cases. 2 Bequiet's, 2 Corsair, 2 Deepcool and 3 Fractals yet not one coolermaster

    I like the look of this, but I think I'm going to shrink to iTX on my next re-case..

    Will absolutely a Fractal Design case though, my server was in a Node 804, now a Node 304 after a board/cpu/ram rebuild, the 304 I picked up used with no screws, I emailed them, fully expected to pay for a screw set but they didn't have any in stock on the spares site, the guy I was dealing with posted me a set they had laying around in the office, FOC..

    SFF / ITX is where it's at in terms of the pinnacle of PC design right now.

    Don't get why they removed sound damping from the sides and 5.25 inch drive. Surely they were selling points and not much obstruction to air flow.

    Probably not much call for 5.25 drives these days. In a small case a solid drive would be quite a big obstruction I would have thought

    Not really.
    All it does in the Define 7 is shift the front intake fans downwards.
    There is nothing by default there to block, and when you fit a drive, there isn't room there for fan/radiator anyway in that location.
    Sort of replacing fan/radiator options than blocking anything.

    Low noise is achieved via good airflow which lets fans run at a much lower speed.
    Dampening is only really necessary when components are inherently loud, or silence is necessary.
    But that comes at the expense of airflow and higher temperatures which may well then lead to higher noise for the cooling.
    Somewhat contradictory.

    5.25" drives are still supported by the Define 7, which I only wish could somehow have a mesh intake for the above reason, while still supporting that drive.
    Really all it needs is a mesh door in my rather than the restrictive side intake.

    I really hope they release an updated 'C' version of this case. Its beautiful but the next build I do I don't want any 5 inch drives, and would rather a much smaller case footprint. If they did a refresh I'd for sure buy one. Really want to know how quiet you can get it with low rpm fans taking advantage of the airflow potential.
