It has been quite a while since Lee's review of the be quiet! Silent Base 800 so it is worth revisiting this case over at The Tech Report.  The price has not changed from the original launch but there do seem to be more colours available, up to and including orange. There are several features which could influence you to purchase the case, top mounted I/O ports and power button and the Pure Wings 2 fans included in the case.  On the other hand there is a distinctive lack of a reset button and the case is rather narrow and extra large GPUs will require the removal of drive cages.  Check out the full review to see whether this case holds any interest for you.

The Silent Base 800 may Be Quiet!, but the orange trim certainly isn't

Lee reviewed the Be Quiet! Silent Base 800 back on my birthday but since that feels like so long ago and since there are so many cases on the market it seems worth revisiting.  As this is the first time [H]ard|OCP has reviewed a case from this manufacturer, they are looking at it with fresh eyes instead of comparing it to the 600 model.  At 495x266x542mm (19.5x10.5x21.3") it is large enough to fit just about any component you might want and with seven slots it is great for multiple GPUs. [H] was impressed enough to grant a Gold Award to the 800, not just for the acoustical and thermal performance but also for the flexibility of the drive cages.  If you gave the case a pass previously, perhaps ponder a peek.

"With a company name like be quiet!, you likely know what to somewhat expect. This German company strives to build some of the best designed computer chassis on the market. Its new Silent Base 800 series case certainly looks good on the outside. How does it perform when it comes to being cool and quiet?"

CES 2016: Be Quiet Cases and Cooling

We visited the Be Quiet suite at CES 2016 and took a look at their current enclosure, cooler, and power supply offerings, but there were some new things to see as the company readies its 2016 lineup.

First we looked at the Silent Base 800 enclosure, which will soon be available in red trim, or a green trim version (red pictured). While we have reviewed the Silent Base 600 enclosure, the Silent Base 800 (though built on the same internal chassis) offers additional noise reduction features. Air is drawn through the sides of the front panel and cycled behind the front intake fans, preventing audible fan noise as much as possible, and there is noise dampening material in place throughout.

The PSU lineup is essentially unchanged for 2016, though Be Quiet is revising the cabling on their power supplies to add "stealth" black - which means that no longer will you see the multi-colored wires anywhere on the cable. This will help provide a much nicer looking build without the use of cable extensions or custom PSU cables.

The cooler lineup is likewise unchanged (at least to this point), though availability of some of the coolers such as the Shadow Rock LP (which is manufactured in Taiwan rather than China) should be improving soon.
