Design

The main difference between the Be Quiet 900 & Be Quiet 900 Pro is the Qi Charger and steel panel instead of the tempered glass panel, it supports all types of mainboards as you expect from a full tower case.  Another feature that you don’t find on another premium case  is that you can assemble the case the other way round instead of the usual style since it is fully modular. We tried to assemble the case in a different style than usual due to its modular design and the only problem was that the cables need to be long as the 24 pin and the 8 pin did not reach the board from the position we put it in.

The cooling is quite good, and out of the box,  3 Fan will be pre-installed in the chassis. However, in the front, you can install either 120mm fans or 140mm fans, the same applies for the top.  The bottom of the chassis will allow for a single 120mm fan, but it also has room for a pair of 140mm fans, while the back supports either a 120mm or 140mm fan. As for water cooling support it allows for a vast range of options such as the top back and front panel.
