Whisper-quiet operation
Two preinstalled Pure Wings 2 fans with airflow-optimized fan blades that ensure perfect airflow and cooling. Despite the compact case design the front and rear fans are both 140mm models, resulting in very quiet operation. Up to three 140mm fans can be installed in addition.

Achieving great silence and stability

Generous space for high-end hardware
The Pure Base 500 provides generous dimensions to install high-end graphics cards and large coolers of up to 190mm in height. Fans or a radiator up to 360mm can be installed easily at the front and the top area also provides space for more fans or a radiator up to 240mm.

And great cable routing possibilities

Offering a neat interior
