Hello everyone,

I am in the market for a pc case as I will be building one in the near future. In my system, I'll have a i5 7500 with no graphics card (it'll just be a desktop pc). I want to put an NZXT Hue+ in my system, so I'm looking for a case with a tempered glass side panel. My budget is $80, and these are my top 3 choices right now:

Fractal Design Meshify C
Fractal Design Define Mini C TG
Phanteks Enthoo Pro M

All of these cases have great reviews and reportedly have great cooling performance. My question is, which of these cases has the least tinted glass panel? Because I want the least tinted one in order for the RGB to show through.

Also, which of these cases do you think is the best in

a) cooling performance
b) noise levels
c) cable management
d) overall layout/easiness to build in it.

If you have any other suggestions for a case that fits my needs, leave it down below. I know the NZXT S340 Elite would be pretty darn good for my needs, but do you think it's worth a $15 ish extra investment? Or would any of these cases do just fine?

Thank you in advance for any help :)

I vote for the

Fractal Design Meshify C

The nzext S340 Elite is a good choice but its cooling performance is less.

Noise levels can be controlled using better fans (noctua or others) . I never use stock fans.

I love FD cases. My last 3 cases have been FD cases. I've never had a Phanteks case, mostly because I'm luke warm on the looks. Listen, Fractile Design cases (every one I've owned) has been outstanding in pretty much every way. That said I've never been a fan of their fans. The lone bit of work I do on all their cases is toss the fans that come with it. I know a lot of reviewers like their fans. I don't.

But then I get very picky about how quiet my system is.

If I had to pick between the three cases I'd get the Meshify C.

Yeah, I've heard great things about Fractal Design too. Durable cases that are easy to build in. Do you have any idea which of the 3 cases has the least tint to the side panel? Thanks for the reply btw!

It does look a bit dark to me... I would prefer something lighter. Do you think the Define Mini C would have a lighter panel? Thanks!
