It’s been a long time since the German manufacturer be quiet! made the leap into the housing market. Since then numerous cases have been developed and published. The Pure Base 600 was so far the cheapest tower from be quiet! In order to appeal to buyers who want to spend a little less on a case, be quiet! presented the Pure Base 500 at Computex 2019. According to be quiet!, this midi tower convinces above all with its handy dimensions, the support for large graphics cards and CPU coolers, an exchangeable top cover to improve the airflow and, of course, the noise-absorbing elements in the side, front and lid.

In order to meet as many tastes as possible, the Pure Base 500 is available in three different colours (black, white, grey) and per colour in two variants (without glass window, with glass window). The version tested by us in black and without side window costs € 65.85. If the be quiet! Pure Base 500 convinced us, you can read in this review.
