PURE BASE 600 with Ryzen 3900x - good or bad combination?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

 

Would like to hear your opinion:

I am about to choose a case for my new Ryzen 3900x based system (completely new).

I am not a gamer, nor am I interested in RGB or LEDs in my case. I will actually prefer a non-glass side panel, if not a must (I saw most of new cases do have a glass side panel)

 

I wonder if "be quiet! Case PURE BASE 600" will serve my CPU well in sense of a good airflow? 

If not - are there any other options I should consider, based on a similar price level? Or do I have to raise my budget for something more expensive?

If your looking for something with great airflow, a closed front case with side vents isn’t the best choice, that being said it also depends on what cooler you have paired with your cpu. I know you mentioned you don’t like glass panels but the fractal design meshify c is a great airflow option

What about the Meshify C solid, all the fun of the C without the glass?

 

It comes in different names, Meshify C solid/Solid panel. sometimes it is just called the meshify C as the one with glass is called Meshify C Tempered Glass.

What about "Meshify S2"?

I've noticed this is a much bigger case. However - doesn't bigger case generally introduce better air flow (especially if compare to Meshify C, which is much more "compact")?

As the saying goes, bigger isn't always better.

 

You are more likely to have hot spots in the airflow with larger cases.

 

I wish I went with a smaller case like the meshify C these days.

If you have a proper air setup with good quality fans you won’t notice a improvement over getting a bigger case, because there’s more air to move around, for all intensive purposes the mid tower will suit your needs. Unless your doing custom water cooling which can limit you with what cases you can use.
