External 5.25” Optical Drive
The Be Quiet! Silent Base 600 has three external 5.25” drive bays located at the top of the front panel, which are hidden behind the front door. Our 5.25” Blu-ray burner slid easily into position and locked in place without tools as advertised. Drives can also be secured with machine screws if desired.
Note: If you plan to install a dual radiator up top it may block the top 5.25” drive bay.
Internal Hard Disc Drives
The internal 3.5” HDD cage is designed to mount up to three 3.5” HDDs and one 2.5” SSD. Be Quiet! came up with an innovative approach to mount the 3.5” HDDs using rubber rails, which bolt onto the sides of a drive with thumb screws and allow sliding the drive into one of the HDD cage slots. The rubber rail decouples vibration from the drives to minimize noise. A small sliding plate on the left-front edge of the drive cage locks the drives into position with a thumb-screw. The 2.5” SSD bolts onto the under edge of the top of the drive cage (screw driver required).
There are also two 2.5” SSD mounting trays located on the back side of the motherboard tray. All-in-all, the Silent Base 600 can mount up to three 3.5” HDDs and three 2.5” SSDs.
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?
