Back in 2017 Leo took at look at the Dark Base 700 from Be Quiet! Leo liked the case with its sleek styling and impressively quiet design but thought it was a little on the pricey side. During CES a new version of the case, the ‘Limited edition White Dark Base 700’ was announced. With only 3000 units available there hasn’t been much movement on the price with the case retailing for £166.99. I was sent one of the 3000 cases and was happy to use it to create an all white build and document the whole process on video.
