BE QUIET! Silent Base 800 Review
OverviewHardware: Cases & PSU
WHAT WE LIKED:Great Aesthetics, Roomy Interior, Excellent Drive Storage, Sturdy and Light, Silent, Superb cooling support
WHAT WE DISLIKED:Slightly Expensive
People often think the PSU is the most overlooked computer piece in a build, but the case is far easier to overlook than you might think. Sure, you need to have plenty of wattage to future proof upgrades, but nothing can cramp that custom loop dream quicker than a case that didn’t have quite enough room to fit the radiator above your motherboard. BE QUIET! decided it was time to try and break into the computer chassis market while staying true to their values of silent computing. While the Silent Base 800 already appears to have the proper design to help reduce noise, the real question is whether this case will be able to offer room for high end computer parts combined with advanced cooling. We’ll dive right in here in a sec, but before we do that, let’s take a closer look at the company behind the Silent Base 800.
