Fractal introduces Meshify 2 RGB and Meshify 2 Lite computer chassis

Easy to clean with wide component compatibility.

Fractal Design has unveiled two new computer cases coming with or without RGB fans and featuring easy to clean dust filters.

Starting with the most complete version, the Meshify 2 RGB is up for grabs in black or white, measuring 542mm (L) x 240mm (W) x 474mm (H) and weighing 11.1kg.

It can house up to an E-ATX motherboards (285mm in width), 360mm radiators in the front, 360mm up top, or 280mm in the base, alongside nine 120/140mm fans, controllable via a Nexus+ 2 fan hub supporting three 4-pin plus six 3-pin fans.

Storage-wise, we get six SSD/HDD trays, two SSD brackets and one (included) multibracket. More slots can be obtained using the multibracket adapter which converts any unused fan position to HDD, SSD or pump mounts.

Two vertical expansion slots cater for graphics cards measuring up to 450mm.

Finally, this model comes accompanied by four Aspect 14 RGB fans whose lighting can be controlled from the front panel via a dedicated button.

Next is the Meshify 2 Lite, a mostly similar chassis with some missing bits to lower price. Motherboards, radiators and fan compatibility stays the same, although this time only three non-RGB fans are included. An option with four RGB fans is available for an extra £20, but at that point, it would be better to just go for the Meshify 2 RGB.

Storage is also limited to two HDD/SSD trays plus two SSD brackets, which is not bad considering how many M.2 slots are present on motherboards nowadays. Another cut comes in form of no vertical GPU mounting space.

If you are searching for something else from Fractal, however, feel free to take a look at our review of the Torrent Compact.

The Meshify 2 RGB and Meshify 2 Lite are priced at £164.99 and £119.99, respectively, and covered with a two-year warranty.
