No sacrifices necessary: Be Quiet’s Silent Base 802 has plenty of room for all your components

Must read

Much of the internet adores small form factor cases, but the appeal of a good old-fashioned mid-tower can’t be denied. No difficult choices, no need for restraint—you can stuff in nearly all the components your heart might desire.Such is the allure of the Be Quiet Silent Base 802, a mid-tower case that eschews the dainty footprint of its compact rivals. At 20.8 x 11 x 21.8 inches, this one takes up the full scope of its classification, dwarfing competitors like the NZXT H510. If your first PC builds took place when setting jumper switches was the norm, the 802 will comfortably fit your mental definition of “mid-tower.”Be Quiet puts that space to good use, too, as you can see in our video above. All of the company’s gear focuses on noise minimization, and the Silent Base 802 is no exception—in fact, its side and front panels come lined with notably chunky sound-dampening material that measures 10mm thick. The default solid panel for the top of the case also sports a thinner 3mm material meant to muffle the whirring fans in your PC. You have a choice of completely going all-out on the silence angle with the non-windowed version (which provides two solid side panels with that thick foam), or the tempered-glass variant that allows you to show off your build’s innards. As an improvement over the Silent Base 801, the 802 also includes the option of mesh top and front panels that you can swap in for more airflow.To read this article in full, please click here
