be quiet! Pure Base 500 Case Review
Peter Donnell / 1 year ago
Many of you may know be quiet! for their high-end power supplies and coolers most of all. However, a few years ago they took a dive into the world of PC cases. They’ve had great success with them too, such as their first PC case, the Silent Base 800. Then releasing the Pure Base 600 about three years ago. Plus, I love their Dark Base 700! The list goes on. However, today we have one of their most affordable PC cases to date; the Pure Base 500!
Pure Base 500
Affordable it may be, but be quiet! has not skipped out on the premium features. It still comes with the usual style and build quality you would expect from be quiet!. However, you also get two of their premium Pure Wings 2 140mm fans, noise insulation mats, radiator support, a PSU shroud, dust filters and more. If that wasn’t enough, it even comes in three colours (well, tones), Black, white and an anthracite grey finish. Plus, all three come with the option of a tempered glass side panel. We’ve got the bright and clean white version in for review, as well as the tempered glass side panel… ooooh yeah!
