Hey Guys,

My name is Shannon, I am the marketing manager for USA and Canada for be quiet!

I wanted to introduce myself as while I have been around, lurking TPU for a very long time, I only recently joined with an official rep account.

I would love to hear constructive feedback from your guys on be quiet!, your experiences, and what you would like to see.

Until the Pure Base 500DX, we had not explored much in the space of RGB, as we prefer a clean subdued aesthetic, but with the 500DX I think it has been received quite well.

I addressed the RGB directly as I know it will come up, and we have taken a much more slow-rolling approach to the inclusion of RGB.

I look forward to seeing your feedback and what we can do to make an effective change to better meet your needs for a PC chassis.

P.S. I am a good dude and love chatting with the community, so even if you have not looked at our products, please feel free to give them a look and let me know what you would like to see.

I am assuming you mean 140mm fan mounting?


Also, don't worry, we will be increasing our presence in Canadian retailers ASAP. I know the situation is not awesome atm.

Hey Shannon. Welcome to TPU. I just referenced some of your fans in my "cinebench mystery" thread.

Awesome, if you wouldn't mind linking, I will check it out :)

Whatever, i don't mind RGB, as long as you give option to have the same exact model without RGB. Ideally sell the cases without fans :)

The struggle is real to not create an immense amount of SKUs, especially just for RGB inclusion or exclusion. So far our approach has been to make it minimalistic so that if you turn it off, you would never know it was missing.

2021 thus far has been a mixed bag, but I hope my presence will help uplift someone's situation in a positive way :D

I referred a buddy of mine to buy your Pure Base 500DX White because it incorporated a high airflow mesh grille. Thanks for building a high end case that has mesh. Too many cases went 100% glass and the cooling performance of the 500DX shows mesh is still a valuable component in PC case design. He was also pleased that the not excessively gamerized shape, the white color, and the RGB matched his chosen aesthetic.

Welcome! Really happy with the SW3 fans and Dark Rock 4 cooler I'm rocking. Keeping things on topic as this is a case-oriented thread, I like the direction BQ is going in with the 500DX - mesh cases have been shown to have better noise-normalized thermals than their noise-dampening brethren, and it's good to see BQ recognize that. Keep up the good work!

I am happy to hear this on both accounts as airflow is something we are looking at seriously, which is why with the new Silent Base 802, we include airflow oriented top and front panels to allow you to select whether you want a more silence focused, or airflow focused build.

I've been using bequiet fans and power supply since 2013 :D . But being an ITX enthusiast, I would like to see a case from Be quiet that I could use with their SFX power supply ;).
I'm currently using the nr200 from cooler master wich is good, but doesn't have the same "flair" as your cases. It's hard to get something that looks good, well build, perform well, without getting into the really expensive Ncase, Streacom etc... mainstream case makers are too often doing odd and unoptimal choice when they are trying ITX.

It doesn't have to be super small, 18-12 liter is a good compromise. I'm not a fan of sandwich design unless there's a good support for the risers uppgrades/fire hazard. (It's even better if you can avoid the last one)

Yes that is 140mm fan mounting there seems to be a transition to just 120mm in the budget quality cases. It is good to know that there will be more choice too it is indeed paltry in some areas of the PC space for

Awesome to hear, and believe me ITX is a big focus for me. I cannot say there is one coming in the immediate future, but just know it is something I am pushing for.

Welcome! I won the top giveaway you guys had on TPU about a year ago supposedly giving away a case, a power supply and some other goodies! I didnt want the PC case though and asked if i could swap that for a Dark Rock Pro 4 which is happily cooling my 8600k.

The installation was very easy especially with the included 'extended range' screwdriver. But I have one minor gripe with the DRP4 -- You guys have designed and built it around the use of a 135x22mm fan that sits in the middle of the cooler which means that even if i wanted to, i couldnt switch out the fan to anything else because nobody really does 135x22mm or 140x22mm fans... While i understand that the cooler and fans are a package deal as it makes sure that everyone who buys one can expect to get the same level of performance. I think its a missed opportunity as i cant slap any performance fans on. Never mind the wire clips that are only designed for the fans the cooler comes with.

I cant even upgrade to your high RPM Silent wings 3 fans because they all have a 25mm thickness and even buying the 120mm version for the front means the supplied wire clips wont fit it.


All the other cooler manufacturers dont really care what fans you use with it. Any 120 or 140mm off the shelf fan will work. But i cant do that with the DRP4.


I mean i got the cooler for free so i dont really have any grounds to complain but feedback is feedback.



It just seems very backwards. You guys made such a brilliant cooler but then you gimp it by making the fans proprietary. Two steps forward and one step back.

All good, I respect the feedback, and will indeed share it with my team. Thank you for sharing the story, as the context helps me better explain the issue to the team.

I don't care much about RGB, nice if I can turn it off.
I'm a Silent Base 600 window black owner, I took out the dvd drive and placed a 140mm fan in the front-top and have the little door open for better airflow while gaming.

I don't care much about RGB, nice if I can turn it off.
I'm a Silent Base 600 window black owner, I took out the dvd drive and placed a 140mm fan in the top and have the little door open for better airflow while gaming.
Don't forget front USB-C.

I would like to see a case similar to the Meshify C, but nicer if its possible.. on the engineering side..

And a really good fan. Think.. 120x38 and 140x38 but with a quiet motor, maybe 6 phase.. with something like 2.2K limit for when we want to play. If amperage is a problem, maybe consider a PWM controller to go with it, driven by a Molex or two..

Something to cater to the discerning overclocker, with taste.. but without the exceedingly high price of normal boutique brands..

I'm not talking something to house a 2k motherboard, but something for the more than average Joe who enjoys some of the finer things.

I think we have some of these things across various models, but i see what you are getting at.

I truly do love the Silent Base 600, it is a great chassis, but there is far better to come, especially with feedback from you guys.

Don't forget front USB-C.

I think he did actually mention that unless I am seeing a post response edit.

This is an interesting one as it resonates a lot with some of the old school Ultra Kaze/Delta days when I used to toy around with really pushing some things. I will be honest and say that there is a lot you are asking that is possible, but some like the 38mm fans which may be a bit less likely.

I'm not saying it won't happen, but I must temper expectations a bit.

Overall I love the enthusiasm and appreciate you taking the time to list all of this as I think there are some valuable tidbits from each of you that may help drive some thinking in the future, both near and far.

Welcome! I won the top giveaway you guys had on TPU about a year ago supposedly giving away a case, a power supply and some other goodies! I didnt want the PC case though and asked if i could swap that for a Dark Rock Pro 4 which is happily cooling my 8600k.

The installation was very easy especially with the included 'extended range' screwdriver. But I have one minor gripe with the DRP4 -- You guys have designed and built it around the use of a 135x22mm fan that sits in the middle of the cooler which means that even if i wanted to, i couldnt switch out the fan to anything else because nobody really does 135x22mm or 140x22mm fans... While i understand that the cooler and fans are a package deal as it makes sure that everyone who buys one can expect to get the same level of performance. I think its a missed opportunity as i cant slap any performance fans on. Never mind the wire clips that are only designed for the fans the cooler comes with.

I cant even upgrade to your high RPM Silent wings 3 fans because they all have a 25mm thickness and even buying the 120mm version for the front means the supplied wire clips wont fit it.


All the other cooler manufacturers dont really care what fans you use with it. Any 120 or 140mm off the shelf fan will work. But i cant do that with the DRP4.


I mean i got the cooler for free so i dont really have any grounds to complain but feedback is feedback.



It just seems very backwards. You guys made such a brilliant cooler but then you gimp it by making the fans proprietary. Two steps forward and one step back.

100% agree with this. I had a DRP4 cooling a 9900k loved the cooler but hated that i couldn't swap fans which ultimately made me swap the cooler out. Also wish they had a white option on the larger air coolers.

Thank you for sharing, I will be bringing both of these points up for future consideration. It is worth exploring how we can improve things like this.

@FreedomEclipse and @oldwalltree Did either of you actually try to fit a fan in there?

If you look at images of the tower, it appears there may be room for a 25mm thick fan, but it may do away with anti-vibration measures. Maybe some fan with rubber corners that does not thicken the overall size of the fan? Just spit balling here, but I think it could be done, if a touch ghetto modded to do so.

I would love to see a case in the sub $100 CAD that has support for 140MM throughout.

Yes that is 140mm fan mounting there seems to be a transition to just 120mm in the budget quality cases. It is good to know that there will be more choice too it is indeed paltry in some areas of the PC space for

140mm fans support throughout and more 4-5 or 6 2.5" SSD's support behind the motherboard, fan controller and bring back the 4 USB ports on front/top panel with a USB-C port.
I don't care much about RGB, nice if I can turn it off.
I'm a Silent Base 600 window black owner, I took out the dvd drive and placed a 140mm fan in the front-top and have the little door open for better airflow while gaming.

Hey guys, I went ahead and reviewed all of our chassis lineups to confirm before replying, and all of our chassis minus the Silent Base 600 and Pure Base 600 support 140mm in every position. Even those "600" chassis support 140mm in virtually all positions except the rear.

Also, being our name is be quiet! I feel it safe to assume we will always offer larger fan mounting since 140mm fans can push a similar amount of air at a lower fan speed with less noise.

I am actually getting hands-on with one of these soon to test this very thing.

If there is an issue, I will indeed pass it on to my team and see how we can address it on future products.

Just adds up quick doing push/ pull on many rads plus two large mora 360's
Got any super large fans for watercool mora 360's ?
