be quiet! The Silent PC Component Company You’ve Not Heard Of

be quiet! have been making (very silent) waves in the high-end PC component market for a few years now. Starting in 2002 with a range of quiet PSUs, be quiet! have steadily expanded and improved their range.

Power Supplies

ATX PSUs

When it comes to Power Supplies, be quiet! are mainly known for their ATX PSUs. From their PC builder oriented System Power 8 to the enthusiast level Dark Power Pro 11 with 80+ Platinum level efficiency, the be quiet! ATX Power Supplies are quiet, efficient and very capable. Unlike cheaper power supplies who list their peak or burst rating, be quiet! PSUs are rated at their continuous level. This way you know you are getting a PSU that can handle whatever you throw at it.

SFX & TFX PSUs

Two recent additions to the be quiet! range of PSUs are the SFX and TFX style. Smaller in size than ATX, but still offering the same level of quality. Now your mini media PC can be as silent as your main desktop.

CPU Coolers

Air Cooling

In 2008 be quiet! started producing CPU coolers and case fans. Praised for their near silent operation and high cooling efficiency, be quiet! CPU coolers are among the best heatsink & fan thermal solutions you can buy.

Liquid Cooling

Not ones to rest on their laurels, be quiet! recently introduced a range of CPU liquid cooling solutions called Silent Loop. Silent Loop liquid coolers use the be quiet! award winning Pure Wings 2 fans for quiet operation and a high airflow. A refill port allows you to top-up the liquid after a prolonged period of use.

Case Fans

be quiet! produce a range of case fans, from the entry level but incredibly quiet Pure Wings, to the noiseless Silent Wings. All of their case fans are designed to reduce the noise inherent to all PC cases. The Pure Wings range are mounted using traditional screws, while the Shadow Wings and Silent Wings reduce vibration noise by mounting with anti-vibration mounts and a rubberised fan frame.

Silent Cases

Silent Base 800

In 2014, be quiet! introduced the first of their high-end cases in the Silent Base range. The Silent Base 800 takes a full size ATX motherboard and up to a staggering 3 x 5.25″, 7 x 3.5″ & 4 x 2.5″ drives. The case is suppplied with 2 x Pure Wings 2 140mm & 1 x Pure Wings 2 120mm fans, airflow is not a problem. You can add another 4 fans if you are really pushing your system.

Silent Base 600

The Silent Base 600 was introduced as a “baby brother” to the large SB 800. Still able to take an ATX motherboard, the cooling is reduced to 2 pre-installed (1 x 140mm, 1 x 120mm), with space for a further 5.

Silent Base 900

After listening to their fan base be quiet! have taken the already impressive Silent Base 800 and produced the Dark Base 900 and Dark Base 900 Pro. Applying the modular approach of their high-end PSUs, be quiet! have taken a fairly novel approach to case design. Now you can configure the case to your desire, rather than the pre-conceived design of the case manufacturer.
