“Pure Base 500DX was our first step into the world of ARGB cases. And we are thrilled with the success we have with it to this day. Customers appreciate Pure Base 500DX even more for its incredible airflow capabilities than its impressive ARGB lighting – something we are very proud of.”

The be quiet! Pure Base 500DX Black is optimized for high cooling performance and designed for those who seek high airflow.
For all who strive for maximum performance and especially with water-cooled systems, the Pure Base 500DX Black with its extremely air-permeable front and top cover is the right choice. The dust filters on the front and bottom are easy to remove for cleaning.
3 preinstalled Pure Wings 2 fans with airflow-optimized fan blades that ensure perfect airflow and cooling. Despite the compact case design the fans at the front, top and rear are 140mm models, resulting in very quiet operation. Up to two 140mm fans can be installed in addition.
ARGB LEDs offer multiple colors and modes to individualize the look of the case from the inside as well as from the outside. You can optionally synchronize lighting with your motherboard or ARGB controller.
A USB 3.2 Gen. 2 Type C connector is provided on the front I/O port and allows usage of latest hardware. There is also a switch on the front panel to control the interior and exterior LEDs.
The Pure Base 500DX Black provides generous dimensions to install high-end graphics cards and large coolers of up to 190mm in height. Fans or a radiator of up to 360mm can be installed easily at the front and the top area also provides space for more fans or a radiator of up to 240mm.
Pure Base 500DX Black offers various options for installing up to 5 SSDs in total. 2 can be installed for prominent viewing through the window panel. To hide any unwanted cables, the case offers excellent cable routing options.
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.
The high-quality, fully-windowed side panel offers a perfect view of the components inside your PC case. The window is made of tinted and tempered glass with black painted side bars.
