@be quiet! - Shannon

As we know, the bottom HDD cages are usually not the best idea -not only they cramp the cable space coming from the PSU, they also sometimes collide with front radiator if the case is not long enough. This is my concept. Just as with Meshify 2 move the HDDs behind the shroud and place them vertically. Add a space for THREE 140mm fans on front giving a superior cooling performance option with biggest radiators easily fit on the front. Add angled psu shroud[can be 30 degree if possible] that will guide the air from the bottom front fan. Place 2,5" SSD mounts behind the moterhboard tray. I would easily shell for such pc case 150 usd and it would be better than meshify 2 for sure.


I would like it more if the PSU was at the top sideways taking in air from the side panel and then a HDD\SSD cage would fit aside it and could even add a 90mm+ fan too.

Then you could have the bottom bringing air in directly to the GPU.

I've seen a few design implementations like this that have worked well. It is not something we are against exploring, but as we do a lot of engineering in our products, it also has to make sense from a layout standpoint. I don't see any reason why we could not explore this deeper on upcoming enclosures.

Darkflash v22 - great layout but the materials are a bit cheap and it's really not designed well for water.

Yes thermaltake ( like the one i use now ) ( about 8+ ? years ago ) used it kind of, they just did not have the PSU the right way around.

Well it's what i been waiting for for a long time now, well that and plenty of space for HDD\SSD's

Thank you for the kind words, and I understand where you're coming from. One thing to note is that 5.25" bays are going the way of the dodo, and a vast majority of users desire them to be removed. However, we do have another option that may or may not fit your needs, check out the Silent Base 600. https://www.bequiet.com/en/case/642

You're welcome. Sad whenever I hear that 5 1/4" expansion is going out. I was standing in the DVD section of a retailer a while back and heard some voices walking past saying "god, do people actually still even use these crappy discs?". I mean obviously disc drives will be gone eventually, but getting rid of front panel expansion entirely has always just seemed like such a backwards step in functionality. I guess there's a lot of customers who want to buy a case with provisions for a massive front rad "just in case" they decide to do watercooling at some point. But that's the whole point about expansion, there's always a "just in case" mentality involved.

Well in my case as many fans up front is the best as summer times in the house hit around 35c. So not it's not all about water cooling.

I totally get what you're saying, it is something I will look into and bring up.

I agree it is sad as I come from the era of the IBM XT. I miss a lot of the practical parts of a PC, but we must also remember that the market always shifts to what the majority of consumers demand. Then when you consider that most PC's nowadays are as much a showpiece/art as they are functional computers, it kind of makes sense as to why the omission of the functional but less appealing cutouts or openings is going to happen.

Is there any future expansions going into laptops, so you guys can make laptops be quite!, instead of be noisey!.

Hah, no, I would say that there is a slim to no chance of that in the foreseeable future. However, much like your chances of being killed by a cow may be extremely low, it is never zero.

Around 20 people die per year by cows.
So you are saying a low volume production run is possible?

In all seriousness, it's not likely we would get into laptops tbh. However, that's not to say we would never work on a project like this, it's just not something I have seen even remotely alluded to on any of our roadmaps or planning.

Its all cool, keep up the good work.
Thanks for the laughs
This, my friend... is what I do.

I drink and I know things.... yep same line, but, oh well, it's applicable.

Just catching up!
Welcome to TPU Shannon and be quiet!
I always loved be quiet! cases and fans, I recommanded them warmly and it was a pleasure assembling PCs in them for friends.

However, for my own builds, I'm a compact cases enthusiast.
Did be quiet! ever make an ITX case? Maybe I missed it.
If not I would love to see what be quiet can do in that aisle, and not to mention, mod it :)

Oh and really too bad 5.25" baies are getting out of fashion... single baie/short depth 5.25" pump/reservoir combos (XSPC and EKWB come to mind) still offer compact layout options... plus they are a nostalgic touch for modern builds of those of us who actually used 5.25" floppies :)

Cheers.

Cheers for the welcome.

ITX has been a hot topic for me since I joined be quiet!, and know you have an ally on that front as I have been pushing regularly on how we can embrace the SFF community with new options.

As I said earlier in this thread, it is a pet project of mine to push for SFF, but that doesn't mean it is something you will see tomorrow or any time super quickly, as our development cycle due to the detail we try to go to with design and considerations means even if we do offer one, it will be a short bit before you see a completed non-prototype or retail available option.

Also, as you alluded to, and I explained, I too come from the bygone XT era, but much like most cars now have standard power windows, I still fondly look back on cars with keyed locks and crank windows. But much like that market, the chassis market is evolving as well :)

Agreed, nothing I cannot carve out with a dremel anyway, much easier than putting back working crank windows on a Tesla :)

Cheers for the welcome.

ITX has been a hot topic for me since I joined be quiet!, and know you have an ally on that front as I have been pushing regularly on how we can embrace the SFF community with new options.

As I said earlier in this thread, it is a pet project of mine to push for SFF, but that doesn't mean it is something you will see tomorrow or any time super quickly, as our development cycle due to the detail we try to go to with design and considerations means even if we do offer one, it will be a short bit before you see a completed non-prototype or retail available option.

Also, as you alluded to, and I explained, I too come from the bygone XT era, but much like most cars now have standard power windows, I still fondly look back on cars with keyed locks and crank windows. But much like that market, the chassis market is evolving as well :)
Take some inspiration from Sliger, SFF reddit and OptimumTech YT. Don't do the same thing so many other case manufacturers do like NZXT with their initially popular but proven shit H1, and produce something that ticks all the consoomer boxes but isn't actually practical, efficient and well thought out.

BeQuiet has a chance to do something other case manufacturers have only touched on so far.

Future is smaller PCs, storage, removable media etc all gotten much, much smaller. Only thing need space for is heatsinks/radiators and clearance for airflow/modular standards. Additionally, as I, and many others have proven, you can have a zero compromise build in a quarter (or less) of the typical volume of a standard ATX case.

(I know, 3070 in there at the moment, but I will put a 3090 in under water, once optimus WB is in stock).

My name is Shannon, I am the marketing manager for USA and Canada for be quiet!....
Hi Robb: Congratulations and welcome to Germany and greetings from a German born American also formerly from the great Buckeye State. Have been watching your reviews since the "Cougar Panzer-G Chassis" during your early Tweaktown days. Hats off to your great background with Björn's, AVADirect, Thermaltake, etc. Working for the Germans will now however be a new twist and as they would want to become closer (or better said getting a bigger piece) of the American/Canadian tech-market. Your new friends from Listan GmbH near Hamburg or the German point of views on the general variety of subjects are a indeed a bit different in many ways. From a 'cultural point of view' I would recommend to be checking in with Germany's most visited tech-online magazine "ComputerBase." The tech-specs are basically all the same, but the participants do speak another language no pun intended. In this respect its always good to see the coin from both sides. Welcome again and best of luck to you.

This is indeed my goal, is to do something special. Time will tell how it fares, but being be quiet! I have no doubt new and exciting (and quiet!) stuff will be soon to come :D

I fear you have me at a bit of a disadvantage, you know a lot about me, but I do not you. My apologies if we met in the past and I am not putting two and two together.

Have we met?
