Manufacturer be quiet! is known for its power supplies, CPU coolers, and fans. The vendor has never built a PC case, until now. The case will be called the Silent Base 800, and from the looks of it the product will be a very good offering.
Aesthetically, the case is already recognizable as a be quiet! unit. be quiet!’s colors are black with orange or white accents, and we see exactly this same theme on the case, although instead of white, the company used gray accents. The design is also very simple, so for those of us who like minimalistic case designs this one might be worth a look.
Internally, you’ll be able to house up to ATX motherboards, long graphics cards, tall CPU coolers, seven 3.5” drives split over two cages, three optical drives, and an ATX PSU of almost any length. SSDs can be mounted behind the motherboard tray. The exact measurements are not yet available.
Cooling is handled by three Pure Wings 2 fans, two of which are 140 mm variants and one of which is a 120 mm version. It is unclear whether fans can be mounted at the top of the case as an exhaust, although we reckon this will be possible – be quiet! would be cannibalizing its sales if not.
Pricing will be set at €119 in Europe, which means that if this case comes to the US we can expect a price tag of about $119. European availability is expected for October.
