Currently have a corsair air 240, wanting to go alittle bigger with better temps.

Looking at the fractal design meshify c.

I'm wanting to put the cpu rad (100hi v2) up top in this case. But will it work with a m-atx board or will I need to upgrade to a atx motherboard and ram? Due to the height?

Reason for upgrade is the 240 air only takes m-atx and doesn't give much room for my videocard to get air as my soundcard it sits right under the videocard.

Also looking at upgrading to a gtx 1080ti very soon also.
reason for mounting up top is I don't think there will be room for the radiator due to the length of the video card.


Current board: Gigabyte GA-X99M-Gaming 5
Current Ram: Corsair CMD16GX4M2A2666C15 Dominator

Afternoon NZtrigger,


The space in the Meshify C is very tight as it is the most compact ATX case I have seen for some time.


While a radiator can be fitted above the motherboard, in this case, the motherboards heat spreaders cannot be any more than 4cm high.


As this is not something that is available online it may be best to measure the height yourself on the motherboard to see if it will fit snuggly.

Any other cases you would reccommend. I don't have much room for my case.

Morning NZTrigger,


Would something like the NZXT H500 be too large, as this would fit your cooler more comfortably?

Morning NZTrigger,


The H500i Dimensions are as follows W: 210mm H: 460mm D: 428mm (with feet) would this be suitable? (I've measured to make sure :))

The H700i might be a bit too fat/ tight W: 230mm H: 516mm D: 494mm (with feet)

24cm includes a few cm for air flow. So looks like the h700i would fit.

Afternoon NZTrigger,


Most of these are special order workstation board as there is no local stock.


From the list of Motherboard on our site the only one in stock locally which is new is the Gigabyte Designare.
