Most Favorable Review

Heavy case, but does make it significantly quieter

be quiet! Silent Base 601- Midi Tower - Orange Excellent silence and usability

Pros: Included two case fans Tons of sound dampening. The sound dampening is ridiculous. Solid construction

Cons: (my cons are really not that big of a deal and I feel I'm overly nitpicking) Doesn't allow me to remove the bottom shroud over the PSU Not entirely clear how the case fan would be installed up top Would prefer for the manual to have more instructions and diagrams Would like some optional sound proofing covers for the back since it's the only weakspot

Overall Review: I don't care about RGB. The case is currently between my desk and the wall, so I can't see it anyway. Kind of a pain to pull out and remove though. It's also in my living room, so I'm trying to have it as discrete as possible. It does a GREAT job of reducing noise. I bought two Noctua NF-A14 PWM (static pressure) and have all three fans sitting up front to ensure that I get good airflow. I have them running at around 1300 RPM (max is 1500) and it's only a hum. Because I have more airflow coming into the case due to the three 120mm case fans and only one 120mm exhaust case fan, there's hardly any dust after 6 months (bought in Feb 2019). I bought this case to help reduce the ridiculous blower fan noise on my Vega 56 (never again). I strongly recommend this case. I think I'm happier with this case than any other case I have purchased in the last 20 years. I like what case mfgs have done since there's no further need for DVD drives up front, minus the RGB eyesores.
