be quiet! Pure Base 500DX – More airflow for the Pure Base 500?

With the Pure Base 500, the German manufacturer be quiet! has developed a low-priced silent case, which convinced us with a good middle ground between Silent and Airflow. However, at the CES 2020, be quiet! has now presented a case that at first glance does not fit into the usual portfolio. It has a mesh front element and striking RGB lighting. As the rest of the Midi Tower is based on the body of the be quiet! Pure Base 500, the further development is appropriately called Pure Base 500DX.

The be quiet! Pure Base 500DX is available in two colour variants (black, white) from a price of € 99.90 (RRP). Both versions come with a tempered glass side panel. Read this review to find out whether the changes pay off and how the be quiet! Pure Base 500DX performs in general.

Scope of delivery

The be quiet! Pure Base 500DX comes well and safely packed in a brown cardboard box with black writing and is wrapped in normal styrofoam and a plastic foil. The side window is also covered with a protective film on the outside. The included accessories were stowed in a brown cardboard box inside the hard disk cage. The accessories include all important screws, cable ties, a very detailed instruction manual and a magnetic dust filter cover for the lid. The manufacturer has also pre-installed the spacers for the mainboard and equipped the Pure Base 500DX with three fans from the Pure Wings 2 series (frame width 140 mm) ex factory.
