Be quiet has released its Silent Base 801 casing. The variant with closed sides costs 140 euros and a version with a glass side panel costs 150 euros. The large cabinet can accommodate motherboards of the e-atx format or smaller.
The Silent Base 801 casing is 50.7 cm high, 24.5 cm wide and 53.9 cm deep. The variant with a tempered glass panel has a window of 44×49,8cm and a weight of 11,43kg. Compared to the Silent Base 800, the new model has thicker sound insulation and an improved fan controller. It is a larger version of the Silent Base 601 which came out earlier this year.
Be quiet makes different color variants of the Silent Base 801. There is a choice of color accents in orange, black or silver. Three 140mm fans are supplied and the large cabinet also offers plenty of space for water cooling, for example with a 420mm radiator at the front. There is room for five 3.5 “HDDs or eleven 2.5” copies.
