Case With No Glass: Recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My Meshify C glass panel shattered on me and I'm looking to replace it with something with less breakage. I've to small kids so I'm terrified of simply just replacing the glass in case it goes again (only have the case since november) and my trust is gone. 

Leaning towards a be quiet! 601, even though it looks to be a touch warm compared with the Meshify, I'm sure I'll brute force the temps down with the Noctua Chromax fans I'll be moving over.

All help welcomed!

Cheers

The Fractal Design Define C comes with a plastic window that wont shatter on you if you still want to see your build, otherwise anything else from the Define series can come without a window, and I also really like the look of the Corsair 200r.

I think I have to cut off the glass mounting points to fit the steel panel on but I may buy the glass and sell the case

The Corsair is ok but doesnt do anything for me. I like the Define range but would like something bigger than the C (graphic card a little too close on my Mesh to the front fans for my liking) but don't know if I can fit an R6 or the like on my desk.

They might.  Although they've told me (at least in the US) they cannot sell individual solid side panels.  I tried to get one for my Define R6 case.

 

@Unkindness Keep the case and buy a piece of plexi.  Drill holes where the thumb screws go and you're done.  Meshify is a great case, sorry to hear your glass broke.
