The Phanteks Evolv Shift 2 is an updated version of the now over 3-year-old Evolv Shift. With a lot of subtle but functional, evolved elements, it will be interesting to see how a case from that era holds up in the well-established niche market of SFF enclosures today.

With the Meshify 2, Fractal Design is refreshing the series with all the elements we have seen and loved in the Define 7. That said, they naturally kept the mesh front design to maximize airflow for great temperatures. At $139 with three fans included, pricing is very reasonable, too.
The Montech Sky One ARGB sports a fine metal mesh cover with 1 mm holes, which is something we have not seen from many other brands out there.
