Specifications and features

Pure Base 500 represents be quiet!’s first approach to a compact ATX case and despite its smaller size, the case packs an abundance of interesting features, which will be explained over the next several pages. Like all be quiet! products, Pure Base 500 was designed and developed from the ground up in Germany. With price-conscious PC builders in mind, the case exceeds expectations, meeting the highest of standards in quality, compatibility, noise level and design, for all high-end PCs. As a first for be quiet! (excluding limited edition runs), Pure Base 500 is offered in three different base colors: black, metallic gray and white. Smart usability features and whisper-quiet operation enable you to realize almost any system configuration you desire for your ATX or micro ATX PC. It is the perfect base for your system.



Pure Base 500 features include:

  • Versatile design with an alternative air-permeable top cover panel for water-cooled builds 
  • Support for water cooling radiators up to 360mm in length 
  • Two pre-installed Pure Wings 2 140mm fans 
  • Insulation mats in the front, side and regular top cover 
  • Prominently placed SSD installation bracket with integrated cable management 
  • Clean looking PSU shroud provides hidden double HDD cage 
  • Space for high-end components and cooling 
  • Removable dust filters at the front and bottom 
  • Available with or without tempered glass side window 
  • Black, metallic gray, or white models available

Pure Base 500 is the second chassis in the Pure Base product range and, as indicated by the number “500”, is smaller than Pure Base 600. The case is positioned in the competitive price range from 70-85 EUR/USD, but sets itself apart from the competition with unique design choices such as a changeable top cover, an SSD mounting panel, and two preinstalled 140mm fans.
