Product Description

Be Quiet PURE BASE 500DX - MIDI-TOWER Case White

High Airflow and Maximum Performance

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.

Three Preinstalled Pure Wings 2 | Whisper-Quiet Operation

Three pre-installed Pure Wings 2 fans with airflow-optimised 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.

Impressive Illumination | ARGB Light at The Front and Inside the Case

ARGB LEDs offer multiple colours and modes to individualise the look of the case from the inside as well as from the outside. You can optionally synchronise lighting with your motherboard or ARGB controller.

SMART I/O Port | State-Of-The-Art Technology for Your System

A USB 3.1 Type C Gen. 2 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.

Sophisticated Design | Generous Space for High-End Hardware

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.

Eye-Catching Features | And Great Cable Routing Possibilities

Pure Base 500DX Black offers various options for installing up to five SSDs in total. Two can be installed for prominent viewing through the window panel. To hide any unwanted cables, the case offers excellent cable routing options.

Functional PSU Shroud | 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 maximise the silence. The cage can also be re-positioned 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.

Tempered Glass Window | A perfect view inside your PC
