I would like to thank be quiet! for supplying the review sample.
With the Pure Base family, be quiet! has always offered products that aim to be more affordable but clearly hold the DNA of German engineering, quality, and performance. Having reviewed the Pure Base 600 in the past, we now get to take a look at the be quiet! Pure Base 500, which is available in three colors. We got the black variant for review.
