The MSRP for Silent Base 800 Window version is $149.90, which definitely puts in a more premium bracket. Is it worth the price though? If you're looking for a noise-isolating chassis, then definitely. While there are plenty of sound-dampening models on the market, be quiet!'s offering is one of the best.
Silet Base 800 is be quiet!'s first case, and while the Windowed version offers a nice view inside, there aren't any other differences between it and the original design launched back in 2014.
Still, the German manufacturer has gone all in with the enclosure. Sure, it might be larger than expected, and use more plastic than similarly featured competitors, but it still fully deliver on its promises, both in build-quality and noise isolating.
