I start this review by simply noting the unique model number of BG001, because for be quiet!, the Silent Base 800 Computer Case is the very first case from be quiet! and the Orange flavor is the very first in the series of three cases from this German computer parts supplier. This new case has hit the ground running and we at Think Computers have been given a distinct privilege to review it, so it’s a little historic for us to write on a case that is the very first in a total line of 3 cases as of this review. The BG001 is the Orange version, the BG002 is the Black version, and the BG003 is the Silver version. The accent colors of the case is really the only difference you find which gives you three different color combinations to choose from. The internal rubber colors are black, silver or orange as in the one that we are testing in this review.
When I think of be quiet! CPU Cooler their Dark Rock Pro series comes to mind. These coolers are made to handle the highest thermal loads and are quite large. Not everyone is going to need this type of cooling and for that reason be quiet! has released the Pure Rock CPU cooler. This cooler is designed for the essential or entry-level systems to provide a great price-to-performance ratio. The Pure Rock has a single tower design that should not interfere with memory or other components, four 6 mm copper heatpipes and a 120 mm cooling fan. Let’s see what this cooler can do!
be quiet! was showing off two brand new CPU coolers at CES 2015. These coolers are the Dark Rock TF (Top Flow) and Shadow Rock LP. As expected these coolers can handle pretty much any processor out there and of course have the quality we expect from be quiet!
Be quiet! has introduced its first PC case, the Silent Base 800. The case offers quite a lot of space inside and is targeted at the premium segment. This case is made for customers who want high-end features, but a low noise system.
This review is for the creme de la creme of the be quiet! Power supply series with an 80PLUS Platinum rating the Dark Power PRO 10 850 Watt PSU that is truly the best that the be quiet! company has to offer. It was commissioned to be made in the highly prestigious Seasonic power supply factory. One of the best power supply factories in the world. Other brands of the be quiet! line are commissioned by different fabricators and should not be compared with this product or this review as they are manufactured in other places and have a different sources and therefore may have different design tolerances and characteristics. This review is based solely on the be quiet! (BQT-P10-Unit) and they include the Dark Power Pro 10 series including the 1200 watt / 1000 watt and the 850 watt models that are all commissioned with the Seasonic manufacturing plant.
be quiet! the market leader for PC power supplies in Germany for eight successive years, today announced its brand new Straight Power 10 series. These new power supplies feature an extremely quiet and brand new 135 mm SilentWings 3 fan. Voltage stability has been improved by extending the PSU’s topology with DC-to-DC.
Not that long ago we took a look at be quiet’s Dark Rock 3 CPU cooler, which proved to be a pretty decent cooler. The Dark Rock 3 was sort of the mid or entry-level cooler the Dark Rock 3 line and today we are checking out the big daddy or high performance offering the Dark Rock Pro 3! The Dark Rock Pro 3 is one of the largest CPU coolers we have taken a look at lately. It features dual heatsink towers, two be quiet! Silent Wings fans, seven large heatpipes and that sleek look that we have come to know from be quiet! CPU coolers. Now the question is how well is it going to perform? Read on as we find out!
We normally know be quiet! for their power supplies and cooling solutions, but it looks like they are branching out into cases! At Computex 2014 they are showing off their first ever PC case! The case (which has no name yet) is aimed towards silence and high-end cooling performance.
