Introduction


I would like to thank be quiet! for supplying the review sample.


We have the pleasure of reviewing the be quiet! Silent Base 800 chassis today. With so many cases coming across our review station, it is always exciting to see a first-time offer from a brand. While most tend to set a deadline to rush something with a balance between function, value, quality, and quick delivery to market, be quiet! has taken more than 12 months to develop their first chassis. And instead of going all out by trying to re-invent the space, they have taken various functional, proven features and refined them to a point where those features are up to be quiet! standards.

Here is what be quiet! has to say about their chassis:
Our goal was clear: Achieve the best cooling performance possible, at very low noise levels, while at the same time offering optimum space for easy installation of high-end components. The internal structure and, ultimately, the exterior design of the case has evolved from this objective. To ensure our engineers came up with as many innovative solutions as possible, we gave them these guiding principals:
  • Optimal cooling with maximum noise absorption
  • Optimal layout with simple component installation

Two thick Styrofoam spacers hold the chassis in place and a cloth bag protects it from scratches and finger prints.
