be quiet! Pure Base 500 Metallic Grey combines customizable and silence features with a compact and sophisticated design. It is the perfect case for all who value compactness and highly functional features.


Perfect for silent air-cooled systems

The regular top cover perfectly rounds off the design of the Pure Base 500. An insulation mat attached underneath ensures a silent operation. It is the perfect choice for air-cooled systems and regular, silent PC configurations. Strong magnets make sure the top covers fits firmly.


Maximum airflow for water-cooled configurations

For all who strive for maximum performance and especially with water-cooled systems, the extremely air-permeable top cover is the right choice. It is made of light meshed fabrics, ensuring the highest airflow possible.


Whisper-quiet operation

Two preinstalled Pure Wings 2 fans with airflow-optimized fan blades that ensure perfect airflow and cooling. Despite the compact case design the front and rear fans are both 140mm models, resulting in very quiet operation. Up to three 140mm fans can be installed in addition.


Achieving great silence and stability

The front, sides and regular top cover are equipped with insulation mats that result in great stability and improved noise dampening capabilities. The dust filters on the front and bottom are easy to remove for cleaning.


Generous space for high-end hardware

The Pure Base 500 provides generous dimensions to install high-end graphics cards and large coolers of up to 190mm in height. Fans or a radiator up to 360mm can be installed easily at the front and the top area also provides space for more fans or a radiator up to 240mm.


Offering a neat interior

Pure Base 500 offers various possibilities for installing up to five SSDs in total. To hide any unwanted cables, the case offers excellent cable routing options.


Offering a neat interior

The PSU shroud perfectly covers the cables and PSU. It also contains a double HDD cage with decoupled mountings that reduce vibrations and help maximize the silence. The cage can also be repositioned to install a radiator of up to 360mm at the front. The power supply unit can be easily installed from behind, mounted on the PSU bracket provided.

Cons: -lacks a bit of space behind the case to tuck and hide wires, so cable management is bit tricky, but it is manageable but would have liked it tad wider. -no front usb 3.1 or usb c type plugs on the front case just old 3.0 standard -not enough space for 3x 140mm fans in front, only 2. You can put 3 x 120mm fans are good but more noise. -2 silentwing case fans, 1 front and 1 back but these are older design but still good enough. -Cheap plastic material, its not steel or metal so vibrations and noise will still leak somewhat. -bit pricey for a mid range, an extra 20-30 you could do better perhaps. Pros -One of the nicest looking cases out there -half the case is pre built with mobo screws installed (watch out for the one in the middle its built in) and half the cables are pre managed and tucked and wrapped well behind case -140mm fans front and back are good with airflow and quiet, not silent but quiet I added 12 to 7volt fan reducers from Noctua to make them super silent -not heavy at all -nice clean and simple internal design makes it all easy to work with -works well with bequiet dark rock pro 4 heatsink but just install the 4 or 8 pin mobo power cable before installing heatsink otherwise its tricky to slide it in due to lack of space.
