be quiet! Silent Base 601 Case Review

be quiet! has many enclosures on the market. Also included is the Silent range with particularly sophisticated and extra-insulated housings to keep noise levels as low as possible. With the Silent Base 601 in autumn 2018 another case was sent on the market that we have tested for you.

The Silent Base 601 is additionally insulated to minimize the volume of the computer as much as possible. Not only the insulation material used, but also the construction of the housing should ensure this. In addition, the housing has interesting features that simplify the cleaning and installation/removal of hardware. How the case, which is available in four colours, performs, you can find out here in our test.
