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.
nice review! but i cant help
nice review! but i cant help but feel castigated for liking these cases. no! you be quiet! bunch of jerks XD
I like this even more than my
I like this even more than my Silent Base 800. The SB800 is too big. As usual, wait 6 months and there will be a new computer part -better, cheaper, smaller- than the awesome thing you buy today… sigh 🙁
i wish that same logic
i wish that same logic applied to my wife n kids…essh. “what did daddy say about fallout time!!??

Yet another “me too” design.
Yet another “me too” design. Could be from any one of a vast number of case manufacturers. With exception of Fractal and Silverstone case design has got stuck.
Here are my list of the things wrong with the design
1. The power button – placed so pointless if computer is under a desk
2. The case is 230mm wide but can only use 140mm fans? Come on use 180mm fans
3. All that hard disk space – why? If you want a lot of HDD space buy a NAS.
4. Fat radiators do not fit up top – Fractal cracked that problem years ago
5. Can someone please come up with an elegant solution for the power cables to the GPUs so not as messy
Please recommend a “quiet
Please recommend a “quiet case” that has the features you listed above. I’d like to build a new desktop, but it must be quiet..tend to keep my PC’s for years past their prime..not an early adopter…
I am thinking of adding extra
I am thinking of adding extra fan/fans to my “600” case and wondered whether two at the top or one to make the “push/pull” arrangement with my water cooler radiator would be best?
