It seems like the compact ATX mid tower market is exploding. There are so many options to choose from at some pretty amazing prices. Well be quiet! is jumping into this market with their first take on a compact ATX case with the Pure Base 500. It has a very sleek design, multiple color options with plain or a tempered glass side panel, sound dampening properties, two pre-installed Pure Wings 2 140 mm fans, and room inside for long graphics cards and up to six hard drives. Is this the case you need for your next build? Read on to find out!
Special thanks to be quiet! for providing us with the Pure Base 500 Case to review.
The Pure Base 500 comes in a typical base box that shows the case on the front. On the back there is an exploded view of the case showing off the various parts.
Opening the box up we find the case inside nicely protected by two large pieces of Styrofoam. The case is also inside a plastic bag and the tempered glass panel has film on it to protect it from scratches.
