be quiet! Silent Base 600 Case Review

A Look Inside
The side panels have thumbscrews on them so the side panels are very easy to remove. The inside of the case is all black, but you do have some orange thanks to the rubber inserts on the cable routing holes.

Starting at the front of the case you have your three 5.25-inch drive bays. These make use of a plastic tool-less locking system.

Moving down there is a single hard drive cage. The case does support two hard drive cages though. This hard drive cage supports three 3.5-inch hard drives and a single 2.5-inch hard drive on top.

By removing three screws (1 on the back, two on the front) you can slide out the cage for easier installation of your drives.

The entire bottom of the case is ventilated. Of course your power supply will be installed down here, but there is room for either a 140 / 120 mm fan if your power supply permits it. Also around the power supply mounting is material that will keep vibration and sound down from your power supply.

Taking a look at the motherboard tray this case supports motherboards up to ATX size. There are a total of 5 cable routing holes, four of which have the rubber inserts installed. At the center of the tray is a large CPU cutout that will allow you to install an aftermarket CPU cooler without having to remove the motherboard from the case. You will also notice that the motherboard standoffs are built into the case so you don’t have to worry about them during installation.

At the top of the case there is room for two 120 or 140mm fans. You will have to pop off the top of the case to install them though.

Taking the second side panel off of the case to get to the back you can see that there is sound dampening material installed on it.

On the backside of the case we can see how everything is laid out. The first thing that stands out about the back of the case is the two solid state drive mounts. These mounts are removable and give you the ability to install two more solid state drives.

The backside of the case has ample room to route all of your cables. There is just under an inch of space between the motherboard tray and the backside of the case.
