Mathew's First Public Build Log

I have enjoyed working on and building my own computers for my entire life but this will be the first time that I really share it with anyone outside of my circle of friends. I found this forum and am really pulled to the idea of sharing this experience with others who might enjoy the story I am about to tell.

 

I bounced between a few ideas for how to theme this build and when I began I was going to try to go with an All White build. I found this to be a challenge due to the limited supply of PC parts. I was also going to go with some really cool RGB builds and found this to be frustrating in my attempt to mix multiple Eco-Systems between the already limited parts which were available in white.

 

During my time with the All White build theme I found that the Fractal Meshify S2 case met almost all of my goals. It was one of the only cases which featured a tempered glass panel with a white border. I felt that I can turn all of the remaining black parts of the case into white with some paint but that having the glass already be white was one major headache I was able to avoid.

 

After I received the case I ultimately felt that I needed to drop the All White theme and go with a Black & White theme for this PC. Fortunately the case fits this theme choice perfectly.

 

I opened the Box from Fractal and found a wonderful case. I decided the first step of this build project was to get to know my case and I did this by stripping it down as much as I could. I removed every single screw and wire I could. I felt that I could not know what was possible to upgrade until I knew what could and could not be removed.

 

So today for the first post of this Multi-Part Build Log I wanted to share with you the photos of a completely stripped down Meshify S2 case.

 

Once I stripped it down the total weight was only 1/3 of its original and I was really able to understand the structure of the case better. Doing this has allowed me to better plan out the next parts I am buying. The next update to this will be in about 2 weeks when the next shipment of parts comes in. It took me forever to choose the Power Supply, Case Fan and CPU cooling setup which fit my overall Black & White theme but I am really happy with my final choices and I look forward to sharing them with you.

 

My final note on this post is to happily recommend the Meshify S2 for its easy modification factor.
