While the MESH Elite G4 760 SLi travels inside the Fractal Design R4’s packaging, MESH has taken the extra step of repackaging that box inside an even larger box – complete with additional foam and hardened corner protectors.
MESH has chosen the non-windowed version of the R4, which may not be to everyone’s taste.
We reviewed the Fractal Design R4 back in September last year and it scored 9 out of 10 in our lab test. Our conclusion text said “(The R4) offers a similar level of build quality to cases from Corsair with the added benefit of extensive sound deadening. The excellent acoustic performance of this case is sure to be a key selling feature as it’s one of the quietest mid-tower cases available on the market.”
The top of the R4 is equipped with two USB 2 ports and two USB 3 ports, alongside a reset and power button and a headphone and microphone jack.
The case is equipped with a 140mm exhaust fan. There are seven expansion slots in total which feature white vented covers to contrast with the black finish. The two GTX 760’s are installed in SLi.
The MSI motherboard has plenty of connectivity on the rear panel, including DVI, HDMI and VGA ports. It would be important to point out that these should not be used, as the system is equipped with two discrete graphics cards. Some system builders would cover these ports to help negate possible set up issues.
