   Most people i know look for four specific things when out to get a brand new PC case design, size, quality and of course price (not necessarily in that order). There are however many people out there (myself included when i had my primary system in my bedroom and had to leave it on some nights) who also place noise levels (silence) very high on that list and although there aren't that many cases out there right now that feature noise-dampening material inside (used mostly on side panels) we can always count on well-established manufacturers like be quiet!, fractal design and nanoxia to have some in their product lines. The brand new Pure Base 600 Window Mid-Tower is one such PC case and today we have it on our photo bench.


   be quiet! is a premium brand manufacturer of power supplies and cooling solutions for your desktop PC. be quiet! products are convincing which is proved by reaching and defending the market leadership in PSU business in Germany since 2006 *. This is validated and accompanied by numerous awards for both power supplies and cooling solutions. be quiet! is awarded for nine times in a row as “Manufacturer of the Year” in the power supply category by the readers of the well-known German hardware magazine PC Games Hardware. In the category “fans”, be quiet! earns the first rank for five consecutive times and belongs to the Top 3 CPU cooler brands for more than three years in a row. The community of Hardwareluxx also voted be quiet! as “Manufacturer of the Year” in the PSU category for four consecutive years.


   Be quiet! released the original Pure Base 600 Mid-Tower a while back and since it was primarily aimed towards people who place low noise levels above all else the sides, top and front were all dressed with noise-dampening material. Still the growing popularity enjoyed by cases that feature tempered glass side panels is not something major PC case manufacturers can ignore and so be quiet! decided to also make the Pure Base 600 with a tempered glass side panel (available in two versions all-black and black with orange). Of course the right side panel is still dressed with noise-dampening material as is the top and the front so although we don't expect it to be quite as "silent" as the regular version these should help reduce noise. In terms of interior space the Pure Base 600 Window features two 5.25" optical drive bays and has enough room for up to three 3.5" and/or eight 2.5" drives, up to seven 120mm fans and/or two 240/280/360mm radiators, 165mm tall CPU coolers, 280mm long graphics cards (425mm with the drive cages removed) and 210mm long power supply units. Other features include a three speed fan controller, removable drive cages, noise-dampening material on the interior, removable bottom air-filter and two pre-installed Pure Wings 2 fans (120/140mm).
