After working on my last system with a very cramped case and having difficulty to work on the motherboard and even install a moderately sized video card, I decided to look for a case which is both quiet and has a lot of space to work in.

The Silent Base 800 has plenty of space above and below the motherboard to work in and get all the screws in place, and there was enough space to comfortably mount my video card without having to try to tilt it to get it in the case. If a large video card is needed, the front drive bays are removable to allow working on the video card.
the case has ample wiring grommets to allow a clean look by having most of the cables behind the motherboard.
The case has two SSD bays on the back of the motherboard which I like a lot.
There are a large number of tool-less hard drive mounting bays (7 internal with 3 on one cage and 4 on another) plus the three 5 inch bays. Additional SSDs can also mount on the internal bays (one per cage) without needing adapters.
Also a plus is that it has plenty of space for expansion such as room at the top for a decent sized water cooler (in addition to the back fan and front fan locations).

If you want to mount anything on the top of the case such as additional fans or water coolers, it is a bit finicky to get the front off then the top off as both have plastic snaps that you have to press in from both sides to get it off gently without worrying about damaging them.

Another thing is that the "tool-less" 5 inch bays are not really usable in tool-less mode. You are supposed to slide your drive in and then a plastic latch will lock into the drive's mounting screw holes, but this does not make the drive very secure and pushing on the drive (such as inserting a DVD in a DVD drive) may dislodge it, and non-drive components (in my case a hotswap hard drive bay) don't really allow the tool-less mounting to work. Moving the case will probably result in the 5" drives getting loose too. Fortunately they also provide screw mount holes so that you can lock the drive down with real screws to solve this issue.

As it name states, the Be Quiet Silent Base 800 is fairly quiet, with the noise dampening panels toning down most of the fan and drive noises.

All of the controls and external USB and audio ports are on the top of the case, so you do not need to open a door to turn the power on.
It does mean if you want to put something on top of it such as a headset or a charging phone, you need to put it near the middle of the case rather than the front but the convenience of the USB ports and power switch at the top front is nice without having to leave a front door open or worry about the cables interfering with the door.

Summary: This is a good looking case which is also both quiet and easy to work in.
