Fractal Design Meshify S2 Black-Dark TG Mid-Tower Chassis

Initial impressions from the front of this chassis might be confusing. What you are looking at is the front panel from the Meshify C. Identical in every detail from the shiny plastic around the mesh, every angle and contour is the same, even the placement of the plaque near the bottom is exactly as it was on the Meshify C.

The front I/O panel, while initially looks decent with the HD audio jacks, the USB 3.1 port, power and reset buttons and the pair of USB 3.0 ports, we notice oddities as well. There is a lack of USB 2.0 which the Define S2 has, and we also see the front I/O is attached to the bezel, which is also something the Define S2 did differently.

The top of the chassis sports the same removable mesh insert at the top as does the Define S2. Around the insert is steel which has been painted black, and is wrapped around the sides, where it meets with the side panels of the case.

While most of the left side of the chassis is taken up with a vast expanse of dark tinted tempered glass, with no visible mounting hardware mind you, there are the slightest bits of steel and angled plastic at the front to see as well. Typical for a Fractal Design chassis is the exposed metal looking feet, which are plastic.

The back of the chassis starts with the plunger style button which will release the mesh top panel, just above the rear I/O area, to the left of the exhaust fan. The middle is consumed by the 7+2 expansion slot arrangement, where the +2 slots are accessed externally, and the external PSU mounting plate seen at the bottom.

The right side of the chassis is much like the left side, only this time the glass is replaced with steel and has sound deadening material on the inside of it. The body lines are just as tight and straight as the left side, and both panels are held for shipping with thumbscrews but use balls and sockets to release at the back, opening like car doors.

The bottom of the chassis has the four round feet on the edges, which allows for the full-length dust filter. Seen through the mesh, the PSU area is at the back, but there are fan locations near the front visible as well. Another plus to the design is that the filter is removed from the front.
