Fractal Design Meshify 2 Compact Black ATX Flexible High-Airflow Dark Tinted Tempered Glass Window Mid Tower Computer Case
Fractal Design Meshify 2 Compact Black ATX Flexible High-Airflow Dark Tinted Tempered Glass Window Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Pros: Excellent build quality Very user friendly layout to build in Adequate cable management tools included Quiet! Very convenient panel/filter removal

Cons: Cons: None

Overall Review: This is an awesome case, especially if you can score it on a sale. Was super easy to build in with plenty of space for cable management/hardware- especially if you remove the hdd cage in front of the power supply. It looks great and has plenty of room while being less bulky than the standard Mesh 2, great for taking up less space on or under the desk. Highly recommend!

Great!

GIGABYTE Z690 AORUS PRO LGA 1700 Intel Z690 ATX Motherboard with DDR5, Quad M.2, PCIe 5.0, USB 3.2 Gen2X2 Type-C, WiFi 6, 2.5GbE LAN

Pros: Pros: Very nice build quality - m.2 heat-sinks are heavy duty. Quad M.2! The RGB is very low-key, so could be a pro or con depending on your style preference. Easy to navigate bios - I've always used Asus (great bios) but had no trouble using both 'easy mode' or 'advanced mode'. Wifi worked right out of the box. Gigabyte App Center was an easy tool to install/update system drivers.

Cons: Cons: None.

Overall Review: Had to install the Intel SATA Preinstall driver from the motherboard support page in order to install Windows 11 from a usb drive - just a heads up - Great motherboard though, would happily build again on Gigabyte.

Pros: Huge improvement for in-game boot/load times! Totally changed the game experience in Warhammer II after transferring from a spinning rust drive. Feels incredibly snappy.

Overall Review: Awesome speed, though I had to enable a setting in the mobo bios to see the drive. Once I did that everything worked like a charm. Highly recommend!
