    be quiet! Silent Base 600

    More affordable than the Silent Base 800 and not quite so big, but is it as good?

    It's no NZXT H4440 - it's always going to be hard to top that from now on

    So sick of these cases covered in plastic. I mean it dosent look bad but ill take a solid define R4 or nzxt h440 any day. I know they have plastic in them its very difficult to avoid but ill say one thing about those cases... look at their weight! This be quiet case weighs 7.8kg, as do most, the R4 weighs 12.8 and the h440 9.8. They use thick quality steel.

    I wonder if it supports Dark Rock Pro 3. I know that the 800 series was advertised with it but the clearence from the be quiet! website for the 600 is too close to call.

    It's a little better looking, IMO. Still not a fan of doors on the case front, though.

    What is so good about the H440s anyway? They're pretty cheap and feel like it, too. I much preferred doing builds in Corsair cases.

    H440 is a:
    - Full metal case (therefore not cheap)
    - PSU Shroud hides ugly PSU and cables
    - Great cable management holes / ties
    - It has sound proofing, so fairly quiet
    - Great fan options for 280mm radiators/ options for fans/watercooling -+dust filters
    - Thumb screws - mean you don't lose screws
    - And most importantly: The Design (aesthetics) of the case is faultless - so modern, so CLEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAN! - you cannot get a case that looks that clean, NZXT are the KINGS of KLEAN

    I mean the case is near faultless - check out my build and you will understand
