    It's a shame they moved the I/O panel to the top of the case. While some (most) might have the case under their desk, some have it on their desk. For those in the latter category having the I/O panel at the top is hugely annoying. For all the placement means that dust can more easily settle in the panel, especially in the USB connectors.

    Looks like there's a slot for vertically mounting the GPU... is that an important feature in a case without a window?

    It is likely there because of the windowed version of the case.
    Plus for some people the positioning might be convenient to access expansion cards, such as video capture, usb ports etc.

    I've got the Silent Base 600 and it's great. The 601 has nothing that would make me want to upgrade TBH. I think the 600 looks great and all you're really getting her is a new aesthetic appearance. What would have been useful would have been a comparison with the 600 so we can see on what it improves in the really important areas.
