This case is absolutely amazing. I frequently go to 300 - 400 person LANs at my university, and the first thing I notice is that no one has a case that even comes close to looking as good as this beast. be quiet!'s first case on the market and they absolutely nailed it. Without a doubt, this is my favorite case I have ever seen. It comes with 3 Pure Wings 2 fans. Two 140mm in the front and one 120mm in the back. Let me assure you these things push a ton of air, all while making absolutely zero noise. The drive bays are amazingly polished, and have a nice locking mechanism for extra vibration protection. Full rubber clips, and the drive bays can be swapped out so you can provide even more airflow. I personally swapped out the larger bay for the smaller one, but if I end up getting two SSD's I'll probably drop it entirely. The filters are so incredibly easy to remove and clean, a huge improvement over my old NZXT case. Tons of space for extra fans or airflow. I don't use liquid cooling so no reason to use the top chamber (unless I want to put more be quiet! fans in there at some point!) The detachable feet at the bottom are amazing for transporting. Remove them, put it in the car then reattach later for more airflow underneath. Everything about this case seems polished with absolute care. Even the thumbscrews are something I could brag about. If you value silence and low temps, this is the case for you.

from completed build PLEASE BE QUIET ZWEI

July, 2017. This case was a bit of a let down. The plastic is not glass-reinforced, making it hard and brittle, easy to crack. The HDD bays are great, and easy to remove. However, the actual drive install process is not easy, as it takes 2 rubber parts, and 4 screws to install, making it harder than other, one piece installs on other cases. The legs are removable, and sturdy. The front fans intake is not the best in the world, and they are covered by some of the front panel. The sound deadening is excellent, and the entire objective of the case is to make your computer quiet.
