Excellent case - supremely well designed

This case was designed by someone who not only knew what they are doing, but who also stopped to think through how users would work with the case.
It has a huge internal capacity, with room for upto 7 3.5" drives and three 5" units. There is no space constraints on where long cards can be placed.
Add in the fans, and when you power it up your first thought will be that its not working. It is, it's just very silent. I have three case fans, PSU fan, two heatsink fans, and two on the GPU. And all you hear is a soft low hum. The GPU is by far and away the noisiest. The case has space for four more fans - YES, 4 more. That would give me 10 fans in total. Awesome!
Disks are not screwed in to the cages. You mount them on rubber tracks which then slide in. Not only does this remove vibrational noise, it makes them easy to add, change, remove.
It has two mounting for 2.5" drives on the back side, and one underneath the 3.5" cages. However, I found that it was more convenient to have the 2.5" drives mounted in the main bay, using a converter kit. I have two, each of which takes 2 x 2.5" SSDs, giving me 4 SSD's and 4 HD's.

Top Notch professional case

I am not a gamer, and have no use for cases with lots of flashing lights. This fits my bill exactly. Three very quiet fans. Brilliantly designed case, with lots of places to run cables. Lots of space to add extra fans and/or reservoirs. I will put an extra fan in mine later. I am using it with an Asus Sabertooth 900 FX (AM3+) and an AMD FX-8 8350. I wanted pleanty of cooling so I installed a BeQuiet Dark Rock 3 cooler. This is a beast of a heatsink.

Normally I would fit the heatsink before putting the motherboard in to the case, because you have to fit the mounting kit underneath the CPU. With this case, you don't need to. There is a very convenient cutout in the mounting panel where the CPU goes, meaning that you can install (or temporarily remove and reinstall) the cooler whilst the board is in the case. This is useful, as some of the plugs on the MB can be tricky to get at with the Dark Rock installed.


Really good

I purchased this case just because my old In-Win red "ferrari" case started falling apart (it was 8 years old so it is absolutely fair).

BeQueiet Silent Base 800 is really well built. It is not too heavy, plastic is really good quality, doors and hinges seems to be really good quality too. It is really good looking as well. Bear in mind that it is probably my first really professional computer case, so I am really impressed.

What I particularly liked about this case:
1) A lot of easily accessible hard drive bays (it was important for me)
2) A lot of room inside for proper airflow
3) 3 big & very good quality fans, very quiet too
4) Dust filters everywhere so it is easy to clean. Some filters are removable (on tray, so you can clean them really easily)
5) Everything inside runs at ambient temperature (or slightly above) while in idle and still quiet.
6) No-nonsense design. If you think "oh, how I am going to do that"... BeQueiet engineers already thought it through and it is going to be easy
7) I did not have problem mentioned by other reviewer about power I/O cables being not labelled. They were labelled OK.

What I did not like:
1) Well, as I mentioned - it is my first professional computer case, so it took me about 2 hours to put my rig inside this beast.
2) Manual could be better and some sections could be broken down into more detailed schematics.
3) Biggest problem was actually my Sata and Sata Power cables being too thick. You probably will want to buy some of these "L" shaped SATA cables to use with this case, as the standard SATA cables and SATA power leads will make if difficult to put the left side panel back in place.

Overall it is 5/5 case. I expected more problems and more hassle. In the end I am very happy that I bought this case!


Exceptional quality case!

I've just bought this case. (OCUK delivery was perfect as always so, mad props to the OCUK staff and DPD)

I'll start with the pros:
- This case is very spatious. You can fit almost anything you can think of in it. With a little modding you can even install TWO H100s in it.
- It's so quiet that when i first booted up i thought my PC was dead - then the bios screen popped up. (sweet relief)
- The fans are obviously the best part of this case. Extremely high quality and dead quiet. You don't really find anything like this in most
