be quiet! Pure Base 600 Window Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅28-03-17

The side panels on PB 600 Window are fixed onto the chassis using thumbscrews – the difference with the tempered glass panel is that we have four low-profile versions. After removing these panels we’re met by a spacious internal layout and design. The motherboard tray can entertain ATX, M-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards and there are an assortment of tool-free mechanisms for installing hardware.

The motherboard tray features a multitude of cable grommets to ensure good cable management. We also have two trays which allow two 2.5” drives to be installed behind the motherboard tray – a handy spot to keep storage on the alternate side and possibly remove the 3.5” drive storage (if it isn’t required).

The power supply is designed to be installed at the bottom of the case. be quiet! has engineered the case to have rubber padding which will prevent the PSU from vibrating or scratching the chassis, there is also a detachable dust filter which slides out and can be cleaned.

Above this we have a series of seven PCI expansion slot covers, each have ventilation to encourage better airflow inside the chassis and each has a thumbscrew for easy removal.

A Pure Wings 2 cooling fan comes pre-installed as a rear exhaust fan and above this we have the roof of SB 600 Window which can accommodate three 120mm fans or two 140mm fans. Later on, we’ll explore the radiator support at the top.

Towards the front of the case there is allocation for adding n two 5.25” drives but there are no tool-free mechanisms for installing – standard screws are required to fit a device into place.

Support for larger storage drives is found within PB 600 Window and comes in the form of three floating storage trays. The great thing about the design of this storage is that each tray can be removed independently. These trays can accommodate 3.5” or 2.5” drives. However, if you do only have two SSDs – they can all be detached to improve airflow and support longer graphics cards.

Behind the storage trays there is a single Pure Wings 2 cooling fan attached as an intake (pulling in air – across the system). This is a 140mm fan – two 120 or 140mm fans can be installed at the front.
