Panzer vs Meshify c

What case is the best cougar Panzer or fd Meshify c

In terms of performance, at equal fan configuration; they are quite similar. 

In terms of building experience, the Panzer tips over easily. But the Panzer is significantly bigger than the Meshify C, which makes building easier.

In terms of looks, I find the Panzer to be way more appealing and unique. But to me, it absolutely requires the installation of aftermarket fans.

If you mount LED fans on the front panel of the Meshify C and Panzer, you will notice that they're not centered - they sit towards the left. So if you suffer from OCD - RIP in peaches

If I were you, I'd go with the Panzer and aftermarket fans if watercooling with an AIO - otherwise (no aftermarket fans & aircooling), stick to the Meshify C. If you wanna inform yourself about RGB Fan Ecosystems, look no further: Check out my guide in my signature below!

Good luck!

Those are some very different cases. It's hard to compare them. I personally like the sleek look and compact size. of the meshify C. But tbh it's not really made for water cooling- panzer would be better there.

I've heard of QC issues with that case. mediocre airflow. Not good for water cooling.

 

Not sure on your setup, but a replacement for the panzer would be the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M / Special Edition. If you need a large mid size case.


Best & worst cases for your money in 2018 are:

 

Best Cases overall

 

I) Fractal Design Meshify C - Airflow and relatively quiet, best all around case

II) Phanteks Enthoo Pro M / Special Edition (white interior) - Airflow & full water cooling support

III) Fractal Define R6 - Silent with decent airflow

IV) Be Quiet! DB 900 (Full Tower) - Airflow and silent 

V) Fractal Design Meshify C mini (mATX)

 

Cases that may be worth your money

 

I) Thermaltake G21 - GPU and CPU cooling issues, modest tweaking
II) Silverstone RL06 / Pro - Mustard/Ketchup wires, Shitty cable management, Poor front radiator support, useless psu filter, stupid ssd layout
III) In Win 303

IV) Coolermaster H500 no suffix - if 200mm fans are your thing

V) NZXT H700 non "i" version - Needs to come down in price to be worth it

 

The worst cases - Do Not Buy

 

NZXT S340/Elite, H500, H440 (everything except the H700)
CM Masterbox 5

Everything else

I mean, that's objectively not true though o.O

Unless you care about how your case looks.

To me the Meshify is the best-looking case. It's also very practical, has great airflow and build quality, and I don't really know what more it could use apart from more drive bays for the few that need more.

And now you understand why "there is no better case than the Meshify C" is also not objectively true
