Here we are dealing with a case which is much more measured than what we have with the Dark Base Pro 900. Indeed the be quiet! Pure Base 600 is of a more standard size with its 49.2 cm in length, 47 cm in height and 22 cm in width, for a weight of 7.44 kg, which makes it an average case for the products on the market. It is compatible with motherboards ranging from mini-ITX format to ATX format.
Regarding component compatibility, we have 16.5 cm for the height of the cooler, which will allow almost all the models on the market to be installed, the graphics card has 28 cm if a hard drive cage is installed for 42.5 cm without, no problem either so at this level. The food can afford to go up to 21 cm, so a monster is not to be excluded either.
Regarding storage, we are entitled to 3 individual 3.5 ″ disk cages, each cage can accommodate 2 x 2.5 ″ in the absence of the 3.5 ″ disk, so 6 x 2.5 ″ if the 3 x 3.5 ″ are not in place; in addition to that 2 dedicated 2.5 ″ slots at the back of the box are present. The brand has not completely abandoned 5.25 ″ devices either, there are 2 slots that can be used for disk drives, or any other peripheral.
On the cooling side there is plenty to do here, 2 x 14 or 3 x 12 cm fans at the front, 1 x 12 cm at the rear as well as 2 x 14 or 3 x 12 cm above. Only 2 fans are delivered as standard, 1 x 14 cm at the front rotating at a maximum speed of 900 RPM and 1 x 12 cm 1200 RPM at the rear, both are Pure Wings 2 models of the brand, therefore the entry level now well known.
The front connection is very classic, 2 x USB 3.0 / 2.0 as well as 2 x 3.5 mm jacks for a headset and its microphone, nothing very foolish, a pity not to have 4 USB connectors.
In terms of functionality be quiet! took over the removable 3.5 ″ cage system which proved to be effective against vibrations, dust filters of course, foam everywhere but also a 3-position rheobus at the front which will prove to be very practical .
Offered at a price of 89 € the be quiet! Pure Base 600 has everything we need from a box in this price range, let’s see what’s in it!
