Fractal Design Meshify S2 – Meshify Gets a Define S2 Mash-Up

Can it Build?

Here we look at building a system inside the Meshify S2.

The completed build is solid and while RGB may not be for everyone it can all be disabled for a backed out build but otherwise, it adds some flair to the build while leaving a ton of space for more gear such as liquid cooling. Building a liquid cooled rig in this feels so wrong as there’s so much wasted space, but its definitely possible and now we just need to see how it performs thermally.

 

The rear area made cable management a breeze. One note while building in the Meshify S2 was that the fan leads were hidden and once discovered had to run around the drive cages so they could reach the hub. The Velcro straps worked quite well and were plenty roomy to handle individually sleeved cables with room to spare.

The Enermax PSU you see here, I had to remove the fan Grille as Enermax chose a design where the fan grille protrudes by about 2mm outside the case depth which is just enough for it not to fit in the PSU hole.

The 3.5″ drive cages also make for good ducting to route cables should you need.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 – AMD and Nvidia in sweet harmony

For a long time the combination Intel/Nvidia was the norm for powerful gaming laptops.  AMD has tried to break in to the market but not had much success. The laptop I am looking at today, ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15, is another challenger to the old partnership. It comes with AMD:s latest mobile part, the Ryzen 7 4800HS combined with a Nvidia RTX2060 Max-Q, all packed into a nice slim laptop with a 15" 240 Hz 1080P IPS-screen.
