    not a fan
    super restrictive airflow case that is over 50% empty meets the magical ingredients to the hottest system ever + add in a "thin" single fan cooler for the lot and it equals a bunch of meh

    i'm dubious as to the cons including "lack of side window & RGB" - these are not cons in my book...

    Isn't there a smaller version of the case, very neat but so much wasted space!

    I'll admit I've got no idea how hot the new Intel chips are supposed to run, but something doesn't seem quite right; I've got a box at work in a Define R7 and everything stays well within what I consider acceptable temperatures.

    I9s are stupid hot considering at this point in the game intel might as well be carving them by hand with chisel, but it is manageable

    And this doesn't seem to be doing that great

    And the Meshify C was right there from the very same factory, would have even saved £10 or so.

    The temps are horrendous, to be honest. And calling something tidy simply because there is nothing in it?

    This looks like somebody put some decent finishing touches on it to make people go 'oooh, tidy' and instantly forget that tidy doesn't get you FPS or faster workloads. Temps on the other hand...

    I'm no expert but how come the CPU fan is facing towards the intake case fan? Wouldn't it better if it faced the exhaust fan to keep the air flowing in one direction. Seems like they're working against each other, no?

    you could do that, its usually on the front, sucking air in from the front pushing it though the heat sink and blowing it out the back, if you want it on the back it would have to be in the same orientation just on the back, and hope it doesnt rub against the heat sink

    99.999% of the time the open blade side is intake and the side with the X and the motor spindle is the output

    so its going <F<<HS<F<<<F

    Nah, it is 100% blowing air from the front through the heatsink and out the back.

    100 degree peak CPU temperature?!? I think that cooler must have got dislodged in transport.

    Lack of side window and lack of RGB should be plus points
