A Detailed Look from the Outside (Cont’d)
The top panel of the Silent Base 600 enclosure is also removable – held in place by six plastic clips, like the ones used to secure the front panel. Removing the top panel exposes two fan locations (120mm or 140mm) that can also accommodate a dual-fan radiator for liquid cooling if desired.
Looking at the rear of the enclosure reveals a typical ATX-tower style layout with the power supply mounted at the bottom of the enclosure instead of the top. A 120mm exhaust fan comes pre-installed and there are three openings with rubber grommets below the fan for routing external liquid-cooling hoses in and out of the chassis if desired.
All of the expansion card brackets contain ventilation slots to allow warm air to exhaust out the rear of the case and are secured with thumb screws.
Flipping the Silent Base 600 case upside down exposes four large rubber feet and a dust filter for the power supply air intake and optional 120mm/140mm fan location. The filter slides out from the back so it can be easily removed and cleaned.
