With the Shadow Base 800 enclosures, German manufacturer Be Quiet introduces a new product series that focuses on space and airflow. The cases are available in five styles and two colors, which differ in ARGB lighting, number of fans, and selection.
Be Quiet expands its range with a new series of mid-towers. The cases are called Shadow Base 800 and differ in fan fittings and ARGB lighting range depending on the model chosen. It is important to Be Quiet to emphasize that the Shadow Base 800 series cases provide maximum surface area as well as maximum airflow. This means that there should be enough room for E-ATX motherboards, 420mm radiators and high-end graphics cards like the Geforce RTX 4090 or Radeon RX 7900 XTX.
