A Classic Evolved

Fractal launches Meshify 2

Enhanced flexibility meets distinctive design.
Leading PC component today announced the eagerly awaited Meshify 2. Not only does the Meshify 2 range stay true to its legacy in terms of uncompromising design – it also comes with welcome additions like a movable wall for enhanced flexibility, a fully removable top panel and a front nylon filter that can be removed for increased airflow. Alongside the mid-tower model, the XL version is also launching today; accommodating motherboards all the way up to and including SSI-EEB, holding several radiators and up to 23 storage devices without issue.

Like black diamond facets, the angular asymmetry of the Meshify line has carved a space uniquely its own. And with a sturdy construction that is both stealthy and smooth, the Meshify 2 Series is sure to impress with its unique mix of style and substance. It is a textbook example of what you should expect from a modern case when it comes to modularity, flexibility and ease of use.

  • New chassis design that opens up to fully expose the case interior on three sides for totally unhindered installation and cable routing
  • New front nylon filter that can be removed for increased airflow

  1. This is perfect timing. I am planning a complete rebuild of my rig and was really struggling to find a case that "felt" right. This one hits all the right notes...except for price. I settled on a Meshify C (not as many bells and whistles, but still a proper good case). I wouldnt have even seen it without this article though.
