The Silent Base 600 case is designed to mount a standard ATX power supply at the bottom. As a test, we installed a Be Quiet! Dark Power PRO 1000W PSU into the Silent Base 600 chassis. The power supply dropped easily into position and is secured with four thumb-screws on the backside panel. Installing a typical (160mm deep) PSU will leave you with 5~6” of space between the PSU and HDD cage for cables. The power supply can be mounted either with the fan up to pull air out of the case or with the fan down. The dust filter covered opening on the bottom of the case allows outside air into the PSU when the PSU is mounted with its intake fan down.
The Silent Base 600 case is designed to mount three different sizes of motherboards including ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX form factors. We installed both a Mini-ITX and a standard ATX motherboard into the case and in both cases everything lined up perfectly. And there is a large cutout behind the CPU socket area to facilitate installing/changing CPU coolers.

We also installed several VGA adapters to test the fit and once again everything lined up as expected. The expansion card slots all use thumb screws and the Silent Base case will support cards up to 294mm (11.6”) long or up to 413mm (16.3”) long with the HDD cage removed.
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
“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?
