be quiet! presents product highlights at COMPUTEX 2015 in Taipei
Silent Base 600, SilentWings® 3 and Pure Wings 2 PWM available in autumn, new Dark Power Pro 11 models available in August
Glinde, June 9th 2015 – be quiet!, the market leader in PC power supplies in Germany for nine consecutive years*, has presented their second PC case at COMPUTEX 2015: the Silent Base 600. This new model will be available in both regular and Window versions directly at market launch. Another highlighted product is the SilentWings® 3 fan series and a new PWM-version of the Pure Wings 2 fan, along with the announcement that the Dark Power Pro 11 (models in classes 550 watts, 650 watts and 750 watts) will be released in August.
Silent Base 600
After be quiet! made a successful debut in the case market with the Silent Base 800, the company is following up with the Silent Base 600. With its dimensions of 230 x 492 x 495 mm (W x H x T), the Silent Base 600 is around five centimetres lower than the Silent Base 800. The new be quiet! case is equipped by default with a 140 millimetre Pure Wings 2 fan in the front panel along with a 120 millimetre model in the back. Optionally the case can be fitted with another five additional 120 or 140 millimetre fans (four in the Window version). Three of the case fans can be connected to the built-in 3-speed fan-controller.
For the Silent Base 600, be quiet! implements the same innovative front and top panels as the Silent Base 800, providing intelligent airflow. Fresh air is drawn into the case and conveyed through the interior. This increases the cooling capacity compared to conventional solutions and prevents internal sounds from propagating outwards. To minimize the noise level even further, be quiet! has outfitted the side and front panels of the Silent Base 600 with specially developed insulation material.
Despite its compact design, the Silent Base 600 offers ample space for large components. Additionally the Silent Base 600 can be equipped by default with up to three 5.25 inch drives, three 3.5 inch and three 2.5 inch hard drives. It is also possible to install a water cooling system with multiple radiators in 120 to 280 millimeter format. The window, that has already been introduced for the Silent Base 800 at the CeBIT 2015, has been developed in-house. To maintain the excellent noise-reducing properties of the Silent Base models, be quiet! utilizes a double-layer window made out of scratch and impact-resistant polycarbonate, offering an equivalent replacement for the metal side panel due to an integrated air pocket and significantly improved sound insulation.
While developing the third generation of the high-end fan series SilentWings®, be quiet! has specifically focused on achieving a higher performance at their usual low noise level. This was possible by implementing a new fan frame, which has been equipped with funnel-shaped air inlets, resulting in an improved air circulation. Combined with the redesigned fan blades, this design allows for more air volume and higher pressure. The 6-pole motor, a high-tech fluid dynamic bearing and the new motor-IC guarantee a low-noise and low-vibration operation as well as a lower power consumption. The SilentWings® fans are also equipped with a new, universal anti-vibration mounting system, allowing easy installation in PC cases, CPU coolers and water cooling systems. The third generation of SilentWings® fans will be available from October 2015 with a 3-Pin connector and PWM in sizes 120 and 140 millimeters.
Pure Wings 2 PWM
Thanks to its excellent price-performance ratio, the Pure Wings 2 fan series has gained an excellent reputation. At COMPUTEX 2015 be quiet! presented the PWM version of this popular series. The speed of the nine pressure-optimized fan blades can now be controlled directly from the motherboard. The PWM version of this series is equipped with high-quality rifle bearing technology, which guarantees a lifespan of about 80,000 hours. The Pure Wings 2 PWM will be available from September 2015.
