A Detailed Look – At the Inside
Looking into the Silent Base 600 case from the left side reveals a typical ATX mid-tower layout with the power supply located at the bottom.
The top section inside the enclosure is dominated by the motherboard area, which features a large cutout opening behind the CPU area for easy access to mount CPU coolers. The case is designed to mount three different sizes of motherboards including ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX form factors. There are several openings around the motherboard area to assist in neatly routing cables and wires.
In the upper right are three external 5.25” drive bays, which include easy to use, tool-less drive locking mechanisms. Looking down towards the bottom of the case reveals a single HDD cage towards the front and the power supply mounting area towards the back.
The internal drive cage contains three bays for 3.5” HDDs and one mounting location under the top edge for a single 2.5” SSD.
Removing the right side panel provides access to the areas behind the motherboard and drive cages, which offers room to neatly route and conceal cables. There are two more 2.5” SSD mounting locations on the backside of the motherboard tray (below the CPU area cutout).
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!!??

“i’ll pull this car over, and make you upgrade to win10!”
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?
