Unique Performance and Usability

be quiet! Silent Base 800 Silver offers the perfect symbiosis of noise prevention and cooling performance, good usability and extensive capacity for high-end hardware.

The innovative construction and pre-installed Pure Wings 2 fans assure excellent cooling performance and perfect air circulation. Numerous sound insulation features contribute to well-known whisper-quiet operation. On account of tool-free mounting and generous space for hardware and cable management the case offers a comfortable, first-class usability.

Thanks to Silent Base 800’s “form follows function” principle, every detail has a purpose and function. It’s truly a superior case ideal for high-end gaming gear and quiet systems.

  • Outstanding performance thanks to an innovative construction that assures excellent cooling efficiency and a perfect air-circulation at well-known whisper-quiet operation
  • Excellent usability with simplest mounting and tool-free fitting of drives, an intelligent and adaptable cable solution, and air intake filters that are easily accessed for cleaning
  • Ample space and cutouts are provided for high-end components of today and tomorrow, including space for water cooling radiators
  • Three pre-installed Pure Wings 2 fans feature nine airflow-optimized fan blades and are decoupled from the case to move heat out with a minimum of vibration and the quietest possible operation
  • Professional cable management is supported with generous space for organizing cables, silicone rubber grommets, and carefully placed pass-throughs
  • Form follows function principle maximizes performance; the look of the case is based upon its intended function and purpose
  • Product conception, design and quality control in Germany

Very Silent Operation

  • The innovative construction of the side, bottom and top covers optimizes case airflow for perfect air circulation, reducing turbulence and generating superior cooling at lower fan speeds for exceedingly quiet operation
  • Sound insulation material on the side panels and the front also reduces vibrations and provides even more stability
  • Three pre-installed Pure Wings 2 fans ( two Pure Wings 2 140mm in the front, and one Pure Wings 2 120mm at the rear) include an array of optimizations for quiet airflow
    • unique airflow-optimized fan blade design reduces noise-generating fan turbulence
    • high-quality sleeved bearing
    • switching, noise-cancelling circuitry
    • fans are decoupled from the case with special mounts, reducing transmission of vibration and noise
  • Hard drive cages feature unique, specially designed silicone rubber anti-vibration rails that fully decouple drives so as to eliminate any transmission of vibration to the case


Perfect Cooling

  • The upper and lower cover air ducts are designed both to channel cooling airflow. The rear opening allows air to enter the chassis while reducing the noise passing through the front panel
  • Adjustable side panel vents allow the user to fine tune airflow, or even add more fans if needed
  • Additional fan mounting of up to four fans at the top, bottom and on the side panel of the chassis
  • Water cooling ready for high-performance systems. Three areas are provided for radiators: below the top cover, in the HDD section, and in the rear of the case
  • Organized cable routing assures a better look, but more importantly it also provides for efficient airflow, better cooling, and therefore quieter operation



  • The unique, specially designed front panel intake system allows cool air to enter the case while greatly eliminating almost all of the noise that is allowed back out
  • The top and bottom covers channel cooling air into the case and allow hot air to exit the top while greatly reducing the noise that is allowed to escape the case
  • The chassis is fitted with new side panels which offer more internal space, allowing use of high-end hardware like tall graphics cards and coolers such as the Dark Rock series
  • The U-shaped edges on the side panels reduce vibration and improve case stability
  • Side panel vents can be closed for silent operation, open or partially open in different amounts for increased air intake, or open with an additional fan for forced ventilation of high-performance systems
  • The drive cages can be re-arranged to fit different hardware setups
  • All relevant openings are protected with removable, cleanable filters to keep your system clean of heat-trapping dust


Excellent Usability

  • Generous space and flexibility supports all manner of high-end hardware
  • Thoughtful design supports professional cable management:
    • innovative side panel design provides more space for cable management behind the M/B tray
    • silicone rubber grommets on the M/B tray hold cables from shifting
  • Motherboard tray is provided with large, convenient cut-outs for CPU cooler back plates that will ensure compatibility with current and future CPU sockets
  • Tool-less drive mounting allows drive configuration and reconfiguration in minutes
    • Tool-less mounting system for 5.25” drives like ODD, fan controllers etc.
    • The silicone rubber rails allow fast and secure tool-less 3.5” HDD mounts
      • The case can fit four 2.5” SSD
      • One mounting bay is in each 3.5” HDD cage
      • Two additional mounting bays behind the M/B tray
  • Easy to remove dust filters are user-friendly and easy to clean
