Pastel DX

Ever since we took delivery of the be quiet! Pure Base 500 we have loved it and used it for our recent Pure Pastel build. Not long after we started the project did we hear that there would be a Pure Base 500DX coming, an improved version of the case with some small changes, in particular to the front panel to allow for better air intake.

As soon as we heard about the DX, we were in contact with be quiet! to try and get hold of one as soon as we possibly could. The idea, to transfer Pure Pastel over and make this great little system even better. So here it is, ready for day 1, the launch of the be quiet! Pure Base 500DX and our latest project from start to finish.

The layout for Pastel DX is slightly different, dropping the GPU in the lower slot and moving the pump placement so that it can be seen. We used the Alphacool VPP755 and since we have the Plexi version to match the other components, why not show it off. Other changes came kindly from TeamGroup, supplying new Delta RGB DDR4 3000 4 x 4 GB sticks along with white Delta RGB SSDs.

The Pure Base 500DX on launch day then, with a completed revamp of our Pure Pastel Build! We cannot thank be quiet! enough for getting this case to us before release.
