Having an extremely quiet PC doesn’t have to be difficult.

The be quiet! Pure Base 500 is being shipped in a recycled shipping box which has all the information needed about the case inside. The Pure Base 500 comes in two configurations, with window and without. My sample today is of the Pure Base 500 Window version. The window version of Pure Base 500 features 4 mm tempered glass on the left side of the case.


The case itself is packaged in the plastic bag which is supported by white foam. We see this standard shipping method in most cases we review. This works well as shipping companies throw and damage outer boxes all the time.
