Re: Fractal Design Meshify C

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.

Surprised Fractal Design's new vortex fan wasn't included. They're made by GLOBE, who SPCR Mike liked as oem fan manufacturer. Maybe you weren't aware of them.
