Computer Case be quiet! Silent Base 600 Overview (Part II)

Internal structure

The motherboard compartment is located above the power supply unit. In this regard, everything is quite standard for a Mid Tower class. A large cutout is made in a tray behind a CPU socket, to allow installation of a CPU cooling system directly into the case; a backplate mount (thrust-pad located on the back side of the motherboard) is used for this purpose.


The four large slots in a tray, equipped with the silicone membrane, are designed for proper cable management which looks very promising here. Plugs of expansion slots are attached by thumbscrews. The front part holds a hard disks’ basket for three drives.


At the back side a slot in a tray can be clearly seen to access cable management system slot. Also, the rear side contains two tool kits for installation of solid-state drives and size 2.5" hard disks.


The side cover is made of 0.7 mm steel, and from the inside has a thick vibration and noise absorbing coating. The recess in the …

Red Dragon Radeon RX 560 2GB GDDR5 OC and Red Dragon Radeon RX 560 4GB GDDR5 OC from PowerColor

Not to lag behind other vendors the PowerColor company has presented a couple of Radeon RX 560 video cards. We should note that these cards utilize the renamed Polaris 11 GPU with 1024 active streaming processors. At the moment such accelerators are not available on sale, however they are to hit the market by the end of the month.



Thus, PowerColor has produced the Red Dragon Radeon RX 560 2GB GDDR5 OC, alongside with the Red Dragon Radeon RX 560 4GB GDDR5 OC samples, differing in the memory volume (which is observable from their names) and in the GPU frequency. The higher model’s Boost clock equals to 1,180 MHz, and the lower model’s rate is 1,288 MHz. The effective memory in both cases operates at 7,000 MHz.


Chilling of PowerColor specialties is ensured by a cooler with big heatsink. The auxiliary power connector is absent. The interface set includes DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort (x3).

Internal part of side panels is finished with a dedicated sound-proof material, while PSU and drive sections accommodate rubber pads which mitigate the noise or vibration. Thus, this model will be a perfect match for those customers who long for quiet operation of their desktop platforms. This enclosure is ready to house CPU coolers …
