Ali is praising this case, what do you guys think? Better than the NR200?
Just sent a request to cancel my Shift 2 air preorder here. I'll hold out for this, it just looks like a better case
What a brilliant case design. I hope its for sale here and not an import. The price is really good.
The web site states it come with a glass panel for right side, which is odd as its going to affect the GPU air flow. I imagine they can get after sales for the mesh panel, which should be the default option.
Won't the GPU be facing the mesh?
Also will the opposite side show ram etc for TG?
Just watched the vid, you beat me to the punch, looks really nice. The company already has various after market panels planned for the case
Yes the GPU should face the mesh (if you have that panel type), but they are listing on their site that it will come with a glass panel for GPU side, so they are making a similar mistake that NZXT made with the H1.
I image the other mesh panels will help with the glass side, but I hope they change their minds and go all mesh on the right.
On the other side, you will see the mobo through the mesh.
So the panels are not interchangeable?
Looks great for the price, will keep an eye on this.
Looking at the their website, they well might be interchangeable. We shall see.
Some people are saying you can't or its difficult to plug in multiple displays?
And there was me thinking I was happy with the NR200
I wonder why Ali didn't compare it with the current favourite, the NR200
I think it was because it is a vertical case, so he showed it against the H1 and Shift 2. The Ncase was included as this case was designed by the person who did the Ncase M1 and FormD T1 for context.
True but he did say it will be the mainstream itx case to beat in 2021.
He did comment on the NR200 in thermal testing. SSU Mesh is significantly better for CPU thermals using a 280mm AIO, but worse for GPU.
Size wise, imagine an NR200 stood on its front panel. Now reduce depth by 3cm and width by 2cm. That's the Meshilicious. The size difference isn't anything crazy, really. Especially when you consider that the NR200 has way better CPU air cooler support.
It's the orientation that's the draw here; footprint is only 408cm² vs 696cm² for NR200. I've got a pretty small desk, so my attention has definitely been caught
Unless he rushed it, cable management didn't look great.
Having to choose between optimising cpu or gpu temp depending on radiator fan orientation is a little annoying.
if the case was about an inch taller with a couple of exhaust fans in the roof you could probably have both cpu and gpu intaking fresh air.
case would be perfect then
He did say it was the first of multiple videos on that case, so I'd suspect him to go into more depth on how it compares to other cases.
Looks an interesting piece of kit, but not sure I'd swap my NR200P for it.
I've still got an order in for the Phanteks (another site as they claimed to have stock) but may well cancel it as this case looks nice!
