Fractal Design has introduced four new cases today. The Fractal Define 7 Mini & Nano, as well as the Fractal Meshify 2 Mini & Nano both take the design and the most important features from their big brothers. However, they rely on significantly more compact dimensions.
The Fractal Design Meshify 2 Mini & Nano
Following the RGB and Lite versions from May 2022, the popular Fractal Design Meshify 2 is now available in Mini and Nano sizes. The Mini is said to feature an excellent combination of airflow and flexibility in a form factor optimized for mATX.
It builds on the familiar design of the series and accordingly relies on an asymmetrical front, a frameless tempered glass side panel and a fully removable top panel.
The Nano, on the other hand, is aimed at all ITX fans and is supposed to encourage especially creative builds. Radiators and GPUs with a length of up to 331 mm can be accommodated in the compact PC case.
In addition, there is a completely removable top panel, side panels without screws and a removable mesh front, which naturally makes expansion and any hardware upgrades much easier. The flexible design with the asymmetrical front is complemented by a Tempered Glass side panel that allows a clear view of the components.
Fractal Design Define 7 Mini & Nano
The popular Define 7 also comes after a Compact variant, which we tested in June 2020, now as Fractal Design Define 7 Mini & Nano. As with the small Meshfiy 2, the manufacturer also relies on shrunken dimensions here.
Measuring 399 x 205 x 406 mm and weighing 6.84 kg (Tempered Glass) or 7.49 kg (Solid) depending on the model, the Define 7 Mini offers the elegant look and numerous features of the larger Define 7 models in a small form factor.
The compact design with spacious interior supports mATX or Mini ITX motherboards and, like all four new Mini and Nano models, allows GPUs up to 331mm in length to be installed at the same time, as well as 240mm radiators on the top.
Just 399 x 205 x 361 mm and weighing just over seven kilograms, the Nano offers numerous features and the clean design of the larger Define 7 series models despite its small form factor. The compact yet spacious interior allows for the installation of Mini ITX and Mini-DTX motherboards, as well as GPUs up to 306mm in length with 25mm thick front fans.
