Product information - Dark Base 700 RGB Midi-Tower - Black Window

The be quiet! Dark Base 700 RGB Midi-Tower is an exceptionally flexible and quiet case that blends modularity, compatibilty, functionality and design in a signle stunning package. Apart from the extensive configuration options, there are also two pre-installed be quiet! SilentWings 3 PWM fans and this opens up a range of options for air- and watercooling. The luxurious combination of premium materials and functionality help to make the Dark Base 700 RGB into the perfect refuge for a high-end or overclocked gaming system, or even a system with extensive watercooling.

The be quiet! Dark Base 700 RGB Midi-Tower at a Glance:

  • Modular interior thanks to versatile motherboard tray and HDD slots
  • Intelligent airflow design & extensive air- and watercooling options
  • Two pre-installed be quiet! SilentWings 3 PWM fans
  • Tempered glass side panel enables an unobstructed view of the hardware
  • Stylish LED lighting with six modes
  • Space for an E-ATX-, ATX-, Micro-ATX- or Mini-ITX motherboard
  • Fan controller for up to six fans with four different modes
  • I/O-Panel with 2x USB 3.0, 1x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type C and HD Audio

Modular Interior with Extensive Customisability Options

The stylish Midi-Tower supports motherboards in the E-ATX, ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX form factors, thanks to the fact that the motherboard tray can be adjusted to meet the needs and individual requirements of the user. As a consequence, if users wish to customise it to improve airflow in a specific way or enjoy the look of an inverted motherboard from the left hand side of the case, they can do so. If needed, the motherboard tray can even be completely removed to pull double duty as bench table. The drive slots are similarly customisable. All in all, the case offers an incredible array of choice when it comes to the interior of the Dark Base 700 RGB.

In addition to the modularity of the case, be quiet! has also provided plenty of extra space in the case, with the Dark Base 700 RGB capable of holding a max of seven 3,5" drives and/or seventeen 2,5" drives. The drives can be installed without the need for tools in individual slots, and these also offer silicon anti-vibration rails to allow the drives to function as quietly as possible by preventing the vibrations carrying over to the drive cages and the rest of the case. Furthermore, the slots can be individually removed to give users the choice of increasing the space available for graphics cards and watercooling hardware.

Given the expansive interior, graphics cards up to a length of 286 mm can fit. Without the HDD slots, however, this space increases up to 430 mm. CPU coolers in the Dark Base 700 RGB can be up to 180 mm tall and power supplies up to 285 mm long.

Premium Design Thanks to Tempered Glass Side Window & LED Lighting

The design of the be quiet! Dark Base 700 RGB remains, as was the case with previous models in the Dark Base series, strongly focused on elegant and stylish aesthetics to give it an attractive high-end look. The stylish glass side window (tinted, tempered glass) gives the installed hardware and additional touch of class and style. The closed front and the roof consist of brushed aluminium.

This case also leaves a lasting impression due to the two LED strips that have been integrated into the front of the case. These can be adjusted by a switch in the front of the case. Six colours (white, red, green, blue, orange, purple) as well as three modes (single colour, pulse, rainbow) are available. Alternatively, RGB synchronisation is also possible via the motherboard itself directly.

Ingenious Cooling Design for Fan- or Water Cooling

Two 140 mm SilentWings 3 PWM fans are pre-installed in the Dark Base 700 RGB, two at the front and one at the back. The fans spin at up to 1.600 RPM, and thanks to low vibration motors, durable fluid-dynamic bearings, and a fan frame with specially altered air inlets, operate at remarkable low noise levels. The airflow design of the Dark Base 700 RGB Midi-Tower places great emphasis on minimising noise, as can be seen in the innovative noise-reducing air inlets carefully placed around the case. The side-effect of this is greater overall airflow. In order to maximise the case's silence-oriented credentials however, the case also provides extensive insulation and dampening on the motherboard tray, PSU tray and the drives.

The case supports extensive air cooling options. The roof can support up to a max of three 140 mm- or 120 mm fans. The bottom offers space for a 140 mm- or 120 mm fan and the front also supports two more 120- or 140 mm fans. Of course, the aforementioned locations also support the installation of radiators for watercooling if needed. The front also offers space for a maximum of one 360 mm radiator, as does the roof. The back of the case however provides adequate space for a 140 mm rad. Multiple smaller radiators can be installed instead if preferred.

Thanks to the integrated fan controls, up to a max of six PWM fans can be adjusted as needed. The benefit of this is optimised airflow that can be perfectly adjusted dependent on the circumstances. In order to protect the interior of the case from dust and dirt, the front and bottom of the case both support removable dust filters.

Connectivity Options & Additional Features

The Dark Base 700 RGB includes an I/O panel with two USB 3.0 ports and a USB 3.1 Gen2 Type C port as well as HD Audio connections for headphones and microphones. Additionally, there are nine expansion slots for a variety of choices when it comes to gaming hardware. Two of the expansion slots are positioned in such a way as to enable the graphics card to be installed in front of the motherboard by means of a riser cable.

Bin rundum zufrieden

Ich habe mir das Dark Base 700 als Ersatz für ein NZXT Phantom geholt, da beim alten Case die Lüftersteuerung nach 6 Jahren nur noch unzuverlässig arbeitete und ich mich an der Optik einfach sattgesehen habe.
Ich versuche mich kurz zu fassen und nur die wichtigsten Punkte aufzuzählen:
+ Die Verarbeitung überzeugt sehr, alles ist qualitativ hochwertig, sauber gefräst, verachraubt und lackiert. Die Dämmmatten an 3 Seiten sind angemessen dick, verrichten einen tollen Job.
Die Aluminiumteile (Front und Deckel) sind ebenfalls exzellent verarbeitet und sehen einwandfrei aus.
+ Alle kritischen Punkte sind gummigelagert, dazu zählen die Verschraubungen des Mainboardtrays, die Fixierung der HDDs, die Lüfterschrauben der vorinstallierten Lüfter, die Auflagen der PSU und die Aufhängungen der Glasseite.
+ Die Steuerung der Lüfter über den verbauten Hub klappt bei mir sehr gut, auch die LEDs konnte ich in Aura einbinden (zum Synchen muss dabei der Knopf am Case ca 3 Sekunden gehalten werden, dann mittels Software evtl noch kalibrieren und es lief)
- Der Schlitz zum Mainboardtray an der Unterseite ist definitiv zu klein. Ich hab das Tray auf links gedreht, somit befand sich der 8-Pin für CPU unten, passte jedoch nicht durch den erwähnten Spalt. Was anderes als ein Lüfterkabel oder Flachband bekommt man da einfach nicht durch
- Das Radiator-/Lüftertray auf der Oberseite ist nicht leicht zu entnehmen und noch schwieriger wieder einzusetzen, alles sitzt aehr stramm und mann muss es 100%ig gerade einführen, was ein bisschen nervig ist.

Fazit: Ein toll verarbeitetes Case mit vielen tollen Funktionen und wenig Kritikpunkten, ich empfehle es ganz klar.

  • Toms Hardware - be quiet! Dark Base 700 Mid-Tower ATX PC Case


    + Good thermal performance
    + Great looking chassis
    + Embedded lighting
    + Tempered-glass side panel
    + Low noise
    + Excellent filtration system

    The be quiet! Dark Base 700 is in a class of its own. At first glance it may seem like just another case with a tempered-glass side panel, but upon further inspection, you quickly realize just how much time and effort went into the design of this chassis. You'll be hard-pressed to find a more versatile, high-performance enclosure.

  • Guru3D - be quiet! Dark Base 700

    Honestly, you cannot shy away from the fact as to how good the Dark base 700 really is, but granted it is priced very steep at €189,- For that kind of cash, some people will look the other way. Now the paradox, I do feel it is worth the money as this really is a terrific chassis. You get the looks, the subtle RGB LED functionality, the features, and next to that a proper fan and RGB controller included. You can mount the bigger liquid cooling solutions. Thanks to the tempered glass you can highlight your expensive PC components with any color of choice with the RGB LED system. Storage wise the options should not be a big deal either. So yes, it's not cheap and in fact maybe even expensive. But the build and materials used (aluminum) to make this Dark base 700 very unique. Considering your PC chassis might last you five to ten years I am inclined to state that it is worth the money. And if you rule out that factor alone then I think everybody will agree with me, the Dark Base 700 is a top-notch product that deserves a "Top Pick" award, nice job be quiet!

  • bit-tech - Be Quiet! Dark Base 700

    This is a very strong showing from Be Quiet!. Merging modern features like USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C, the possibility for vertical GPU mounting, and RGB lighting with a design that's both user-friendly and very flexible, the Dark Base 700 is testament to the German firm's design skills. Attention to detail where reducing noise is concerned seems to pay off, and the fan and RGB LED control hub means it will integrate nicely with current-generation motherboards and their detailed software suites. Build quality is also impressive, and while there are some drawbacks – excessive plastic on the PSU shroud, some cable routing niggles, the right side panel release mechanism, and a lack of custom water-cooling mounting points – overall this is a great option for those with a more generous budget to spend on a case that don't want to venture into truly enormous full towers.
