The Shadow Base 800 series comes as a new 2023 model to introduce more options for be quiet! lovers. This model certainly has a lot of space inside to work with and will fit even the most demanding graphics cards, it is usually a pain to get them fitted in small cases. The retail box will contain everything you need to get started at your new build, and the printed manual will give you details and indications on how to start.
This case doesn't include any kind of RGB lighting, either at the front or side area. However, be quiet! does offer other models (either in black/white) that support RGB lighting fans and has a higher retail price.

The build quality is high, all used materials will not fail you and if we had to nag about something that would be to have included one more 140mm at the front, even if you install a water cooling solution, the top fan can be moved at the front. At the 150 Euro price market, there are so many different PC Case proposals, and we feel that the Shadow Base 800 should be one of your first top choices. The product comes with 3 years of warranty, which probably won't be needed after all.
