Computex 2016 - Be Quiet!

Be Quiet! had two new full tower cases displayed at its booth; the Dark Base 900 and Dark Base Pro 900. The general design of the two cases is largely the same. One difference, however, is the left side panel, which is windowed for the Pro edition (using 4mm tempered glass rather than acrylic). The Dark Base 900 Pro also has LED illumination which you can change the position of as well as a wireless charging area for Qi-enabled devices. In both cases, the motherboard tray is removable and you can relocate it to the other side of the case for an inverted layout, or even use it as a bench table – modularity is a prevalent theme throughout the cases, as shown by Be Quiet! using one cage per HDD. 420mm radiators are supported in the front and roof and pump and reservoir mounts are supported too. Both cases ship with three SilentWings PWM fans by default, all fully decoupled from the case. The regular version will ship for €199 and the Pro one for €249 and they'll be available at the end of June.

While Be Quiet! is well known for its air coolers, this year's Computex marked the announcement of its first foray into liquid cooling with the Silent Loop all-in-one liquid cooler. Available in three different radiator sizes (120mm, 240mm and 280mm), the Silent Loop coolers utilise reverse-flow pumps that are decoupled from the pump housing. You also get Pure Wings 2 PWM fans and full copper radiators, as well as a refill point. MSRPs are €109.90 for the 120mm, €129.90 for the 240mm and €149.90 for the 280mm, with September set as the release date.
