be quiet! are a German company mostly known for their cooling and power supplies. be quiet! more recently branched out into the chassis industry, which is exactly what we are going to be looking at today. We’ve covered be quiet! products in the past here at Play3r, and we have always been impressed with the quality as well as the value of these items. With this reputation, we hope to find be quiet! delivered again with another product in the form of the Silent Base 600.

BeQuiet! Silent Base 600

The Silent Base series debuted a while ago now along with the Silent Base 800, which more recently expanded with the addition of the Silent Base 600 and windowed counterparts. The one we have to look at today is the Silent Base 600 with a windowed side panel, and it’s the orange trimmed model.

As is suggested in the name, the Silent Base 600 aims to provide the highest level of noise-prevention and cooling possible, whilst not sacrificing on compatibility/capacity for higher end hardware. This is evident on their website where be quiet! make an emphasis on noise and cooling being kept at optimal levels. It is the case with their cooling products as they aim to make low-noise products that offer high-end cooling performance. be quiet! aim to carry the same philosophy over with their case design which is something other noise-optimised cases have struggled to achieve a balance within the past.

    Can I ask you to check something, I have just gotten the larger Silent base 800 and was watching an online video and I only just discovered this neat trick. The manual was pretty rubbish and I still cant see it mentioned but the 3 drive bay cage can actually be unscrewed and can be slid into the optical bay cage freeing up the bottom and front of the cage for radiators etc. Not so great with this case if you want an optical drive but with my case I do actually have a 4th free optical drive bay.
