Be Quiet! has just announced that the iconic Dark Base 700 PC case will be getting a major overhaul but only as a limited run. Presenting the Dark Base 700 White Edition which will be available soon but limited to just 3,000 units worldwide. The white premium finish consists of a high gloss durable power coating which should stand up to some serious abuse.
The Dark Base 700 White Edition will feature everything the original case featured including modern features such as USB Typc-C 3.1 Gen2 connector on the front I/O panel, plenty of cooling options, as well as tempered glass side panels.
One interesting change made to the new case besides the obvious white paint difference is the use of a brown tint to the tempered glass side panels rather than a dark gray or smoked tint we typically see.
Cooling is provided by up to nine 120mm fans which is quite impressive for a mid-tower case. The White Edition also has the capabilities to support plenty of water cooling options including support for a 360mm radiator along the front of the case.
Pricing and Availability
Dark Base 700 White Edition will be available worldwide from February 19th, 2019 at an MSRP of €189 / £178.99 / $189.
