    Seems new Base 801 has rolled out :)

    My basket at Overclockers UK:
    Total: £136.69 (includes shipping: £11.70)

    more of a replacement to the Silent Base 600 then the Pure Base 600 - which shows me massive increase in thickness of Sound material , vend design and 140mm fans .
    looks like Top is a vast improvement as more vents along the top sides then the Silent but doesn't have the removable top panel of the Pure for max cooling .

    should be a damn silent case and easy to remove side panels with click of a button

    Oh now we are talking, big fan of Be Quiet products. Might have to snap up the non windowed version for a quiet build.

    P.S Leo is a legend too ;0

    And then they dropped the ball with that marketing fad PSU shroud to make assemling PC into it harder than necessary.
    Can't be too hard to make it at least removable if that fad has to be there...

    In 25 years I've been cursing cramped cases many enough times.

    It's funny because there were lots of complaints about the original dark base pro 900 not having a PSU shroud.... Dammed if you do, dammed if you don't.

    I tend to agree though, would have been better to have the shroud removable.
