Introducing the be quiet Shadow Base 800: A Stylish Midi Tower for Customization

Published by


The inaugural model of the series, the Shadow Base 800, is available in three versions: standard, DX, and FX. The standard model comes without RGB lighting, while the DX boasts a tasteful RGB strip.

In contrast, the FX variant promises a comprehensive RGB experience. Both the DX and FX variants are offered in black and white color options. The Shadow Base 800 emphasizes a minimalist, open design, with a focus on promoting superior airflow. This computer case is constructed of durable steel, coupled with plastic elements. Its large mesh front panel ensures consistent, fresh air intake.

The white variant of the case impresses with its consistent color scheme, extending from USB ports and cables to the circuit board of the fan hub on the FX model. The front panel incorporates two rapid USB-A ports, a USB-C port, and a 3.5mm jack combo. Onboard LED control, which can be synchronized with the motherboard, is included in the DX/FX models.

A unique attribute of this case is the rotatable GPU slots which facilitate vertical installation. It accommodates E-ATX motherboards and provides seven expansion slots. A riser card featuring a specialized socket will soon be introduced for added GPU stability. The spacious interior of the Shadow Base 800 can house larger graphics card models, with a maximum length of 430mm. A power supply cover enhances interior tidiness. Storage options include 4x 2.5" slots and 2x 3.5" slots, with provision for additional drives.

In terms of cooling solutions, the mid-tower case includes 3x Pure Wings 3 140mm 1,200rpm fans (standard and DX models) or 4x Light Wings 140mm PWM fans (FX model). The case supports a total of up to 8x fans positioned at the front, top, rear, and base. A PWM and ARGB hub is included for effortless fan connectivity. For fans of water cooling, radiators of up to 420mm can be positioned at the front and top, equipped with removable dust filters.

The Shadow Base 800 is set to launch in September. The standard model will retail at €149.90, the DX at €164.90, and the FX at €199.90.
