The original Meshify 2 from Fractal is one of my favorite cases of all time and is one of the few cases that was awarded an Editor’s Choice award. Now Fractal releases the Meshify 2 RGB. The new version has some updates to the case.
Over the years, I’ve seen many cases. A lot of them were good, some were OK, while others barely earned the recommended award. When it came to the Meshify 2, it really checked a lot of the boxes for me. However, there was one issue to me that stood out. While this issue had 0 to do with performance instead the issue was a minor annoyance (to me) with the lighting and the way fans are mounted.
This will not be a full review of the Meshify 2 RGB instead, I will be highlighting the differences between the Meshify 2 and the Meshify 2 RGB.
Inside, much like the Meshify 2, the Meshify 2 RGB comes packaged in two foam caps with the accessory kit tucked away between them. The case is surrounded further by a plastic bag to protect the finish.
