To make building easier, cables can be routed under the integrated PSU shroud or behind the SSD covers, while the power supply can slide in through the rear of the case thanks to the included PSU installation bracket. Pure Base 500 will be available with tempered glass side panel or sound-insulated side panel in black, gray and white, and is be quiet!’s first case to be available in multiple color options, highlights and limited editions excluded.
