Stylish and functional and above all quiet
Visually, the new Silent Base 601 does not have to hide, the closed front is kept simple and appears in a matte black design. It is surrounded on each side by bevelled ventilation openings. The front of steel can be easily lifted out of the two upper side brackets to get to the air filter. The back of the front is lined with 10 mm thick insulation material. Behind the dust filter, there is the first of two pre-installed 140-mm fans from the quiet Pure-Wings series by be quiet!
Inside the case, there's also room for three 3.5-inch drives or six 2.5-inch drives. Two 3.5-inch drives are installed without tools in a hard drive cage under the power supply cover, which is completely decoupled via silicone anti-vibration rails so that the transmission of vibration to the cage is prevented. For another HDD is a carrier, which can be mounted next to the motherboard behind the front. Other optional carriers allow up to seven 3.5-inch drives to be installed, and 2.5-inch drives will have 14.
Lots of room for well-cooled hardware
The Midi-Tower takes on motherboards in the form factors E-ATX, ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX. If you want to install a CPU cooler, you can easily do so thanks to the recessed cutout in the side panel, but you should keep in mind the maximum height of 185 mm. Graphics cards can be installed in the seven expansion slots and can be 449 mm long. The depth shortens to 287 millimeters when data carriers block the way. With an optional riser cable, a graphics card can also be installed vertically.
Two fans are already pre-installed in the Silent Base 601. A 140 mm Pure Wings 2 fan with 1,000 rpm at the front and at the back - 3-stage fan control included! In addition, you can install two 140 or 120 in the cover, one 140-mm or 120-mm fan on the power supply cover and another 140 or two 120 in the front. If you prefer a water cooling system instead, you can install a 280 or 360 radiator on the front. On the cover fits a 360-millimeter radiator out, but may not be lower than 3.4 inches with fan. A laterally removable carriage makes it easy to fix both the radiator and the fan.
The targeted combination of unique airflow and noise-isolating materials on the front and side panels make the Silent Base 601 a premium enclosure ideal for high-end gaming and quiet systems. The innovative construction of the side panels, case cover and case back ensures perfect air circulation and reduces turbulence, resulting in superior cooling performance with reduced fan speed and whisper-quiet operation. Incidentally, the side parts can be loosened with a push button and easily removed - completely without screws.
An excellent cable management is ensured by four silicone openings and ample space behind the motherboard wall. The power supply is installed at the bottom and may be up to 288 mm long. The I / O panel is located on the lid and features a large, stylish power switch, two audio jacks, and two USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 ports.
