3 out of 5 eggsDecent size for entry-level PC

Pros: Compact and lightweight computer case.
Support standard ATX motherboard and standard PSU.
Tool-free drive bays.

Cons: Memory card reader didn't quite fit with the external 3.5" Drive Bays with the tool-free drive bracket, which I had to put in a piece of paper folding into the size of the memory card reader to made it fit.
only 1 internal 3.5 drive bay meaning you can only install one hard drive.
Blue LED on the power and HD activity indicator is too bright.
Front panel connectors is at the bottom of the case which isn't easily accessible if the computer case is place below the desk.

Other Thoughts: I bought mine CM Elite 360 about year ago without the 350watt power supply for $10 dollars cheaper which is better option considering what I read the default PSU that come with the case is not very good which is obvious it is always better buy a separate power supply.

Instead of having 2 external 5.25 drive bay it would be better choice to make one of the external 5.25 drive bay into internal 3.5 drive bay for extra hard drive.

Overall, it is good compact size PC case, although I would recommend buyer to hold off on buying Elite 360 and wait for Elite 361 to come out. CM Elite 361 actually improve some of the faults that I mentioned in the CM Elite 360.

5 out of 5 eggsbest compact case you'll find at this price, better then those that cost twice as much

Pros: Solid construction for the most part, lightweight for easy transport, rather quiet stock fan. This case can really cram the components in tight. Three fan mounts, including two 120mm mounts, in this small space can make for great airflow and a quiet system with the right hardware. Not being limited to mATX board sizes is the best part of all, this is one of the best cases for a HTPC or if you like desktop-style cases. I even like the color.

Cons: Top/side lid is a bit too thin for my liking, just as thin and flimsy as that of the Antec NSK-24x0, and practically every other case in this price range. The power supply mounts in the front by the external USB ports and if you have a deep power supply it may interfere with some longer video cards, at the very least making it difficult to plug in the PCIe power connector. There is a plastic piece that fits between the back of the power supply and the front of the case that can be removed if expansion card clearance is an issue. On my case there is no cut in the metal on the motherboard side where the lowest expansion card's bracket would normally slot down into, probably a manufacturing defect as the newegg picture shows it cut out like the rest of the expansion slots.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case after the motherboard in my HTPC died and I was bored of being tied down to mATX boards in the Antec NSK-2400. I'm running it filled with a Maximus Formula and lapped QX6700 on a little P5A2 heatsink. I have an 80mm fan on the side/bottom feeding a 9800GTX which runs right up against the power supply wall, I moved the stock fan to the lid and put a 2krpm Ultra Kaze in its place on the side/top. When idle the system runs cool, nice and quiet, only when under a sustained heavy load such as linpack do the fans start screaming at full speed. It is a good case in this price range, I run it in the desktop orientation. One more set of case feet to easily switch between orientations would be a great bonus in a future revision. Bottom-line this is a far superior case to the NSK-24x0, for less then half the price of the Antec this case fits larger motherboards, has more fan mount placements and in better locations, and has better dimensions IMO (less like a pizza-box).

2 out of 5 eggsLooks good on the outside, garbage on the inside

Pros: Looks good, comes with 120mm case fan

Cons: Cheap metal, fan is really, really close to the mobo and can barely fit the ram.

PSU included is straight garbage. Why in 2012 would you sell a PSU with 1 sata connector?

Other Thoughts: I should have done more research before I bought this. Coolermaster is a good name brand, but they can do better than this.

This case was purchased as part of a quick office build for a client. I threw everything together a bit too quickly. Shoulda just went with a case without a PSU included as once again the included PSU is garbage.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for any inconvenience we have caused you. Can you please clarify more on the how the fan is really close to your motherboard as this should not be an issue. We apologize for the psu, as we always do our best effort to improve our products. Please feel free to contact us on live chat as we wish to resolve or answer any problems you may have.

3 out of 5 eggsget 8 pin adapter

Pros: I owned the prior version of this case, and mostly liked it.
My first impression of this one, is I like it more, and it has better design elements and airflow options.

Small but holds big

Cons: cheapo PSU and I would have got a different one, and did not read reviews, I assumed a newer version meant newer psu, but,, nope.

4pin 12v, no 8 pin... How many ATX boards only use 4 pins?

Yea, at this wattage, people shouldnt be overclocking or going crazy with graphics, but just to ensure compatibility.

I feel this was a huge oversight by Coolermaster. A company I kept assuming would get smarter over the years, but has seem to become complacent instead.

Other Thoughts: I hope this PSU does not go bad on my customers new computer.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Carrotguy,

We apologize for any inconvenience we have caused you. Thank you for the comment, as I have forward this issue to our HQ as we always look for to improve our product. The psu is a free item given a long with the case for basic motherboard, we apologize that it doesn't run to your specifications. If you have any other questions or issues with this case. Please feel free to contact us on live chat. Link below for your reference.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case, useless PS

Pros: Case is great for the price and function. The small footprint and ability to use a normal ATX power supply is nice since most TFX and SFX power supplies don't support the newer processors.

Cons: Power supply, power supply, power supply. Not only is the quality low, it doesn't support the newer processors (no 8-pin cpu plug).

Also, I don't think the ventilation at the front of the case is sufficient for the power supply airflow out. If you're not putting a really powerful unit in I doubt it will be a problem. Have to take the front cover off for adding/remove drives and the power supply. Not a huge deal, but an annoyance. These and included power supply lose it an egg.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Case . . .. Good Price . . . No Problems

Pros: Built system from older custom Intel D915GAV system with large case. This case is smaller, has better airflow and is better built. Would recommend to any builder with understanding of his/her hardware. Complete build in about 90 minutes . . . took my time to double check all components and layout. Has large 120mm fan with three pin and an adapter to four (which I did not need). Good solution for almost all builders. I just used the three pin connection to the motherboard (which allows fan speed monitored by chipset). Uses rail system for hard and optical drives and it works well. The front cover just pulls off and make installation of drives easy. Fit full size ATX board with no problems plus has the power supply mounted like BTX case layout (in front on bottom). For the price . . . I could not find anything close.

Cons: None that I can think of . . . and I am a OCD type builder . . .. Everything just went together . . . without problems . . .. but then again I have built hundreds of systems so I had an idea of what to expect.

Other Thoughts: I did not have problem with power supply that a reviewer had . . . well at least not yet. Good looking case with smart layout . . . should appeal to most builders looking for a smaller footprint with full ATX board.

5 out of 5 eggsVersatile Case.

Pros: This is a well ventilated case. It can hold ATX or MATX mobos and can lay sideways to fit in a HTPC aplication(see cons also). It also comes with a 350W Power Supply which is more than enough for standard applications.

Cons: I know I said it can fit sideways for a HTPC application. What it is shortened in width it adds to in length. You have to have a pretty deep shelf to use it for HTPC. Also if you use it sideways, you can not put a monitor on top or you will be blocking the ventilation. It is not a small case by any means, just redirected in the way it is built.

Other Thoughts: I am critical of all things I buy, they can always be made better and this is no exception. However, this is a well made case. I have built multiple units for tight places with this case since it standing upright is shorter than any other ATX mobo case which is helpful for me. I use these alot for CCTV DVRs which means I need a well ventilated and versatile case. This fits the bill perfectly. I personally like mating these cases with ENLOBAL bearing 120mm fans and I have a cool quiet DVR. I have never had a problem out of these cases or the power supplies that come in them. That is why I gave it five eggs. It does what I need and it does it well.

1 out of 5 eggsBad PSU x3

Pros: Nice footprint, attactive case.

Cons: I've had 5 of these, and within 3 months all 5 have dead power supplies. I'm not driving many components and should be well within range. The last 2 I have purchased had Power supplies that were DOA. I understand Newegg's position that they would like the whole unit returned, but I couldn't have known until I had the pc built- and my time is worth more than redoing the PC, so I had to go to a local store and pay about what I paid for the whole case again to get it up and running. I've been a CoolerMaster fan for years, but with this experience I'm back to looking for a new manufacturer.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi TJ, we are sorry to hear you are having trouble with our case. If the power supply is the only culprit, you don't need to send the entire case back. You can contact us via the Live Chat link below to get the power supplies replaced. Moreover, if the components installed surpass consumption of what the power supply provides, it can cause the issues that you are having. Respectfully - CMUSA Customer Support.

3 out of 5 eggsMeasure before you buy

Pros: Price, cooling, nice concept. rolled edges, size.

Cons: Should not be marketed as a case for ATX boards.

Other Thoughts: Purchased the parts for a new build from Newegg. Gigabyte motherboard, Gigabyte GTS 450, Antec modular power supply. Really didn't do any background check which I should have. Would suggest this case for a mATX board. My motherboard main power plug blocked the sata connection to one of the hard drives. The power supply prevent the attachment of the secondary power to the video card by 1/4". The card did not hang past the motherboard btw. The PS is only rated at 350 so many would be replacing it with something else. So if I were to keep the PS I would prefer just going the Shuttle XPC route which actually was able to handle the video card in question. Newegg was great at handling the issue for me but I was dissappointed that I didn't get the small footprint that I was looking for. Ended up pulling a LL case out of storage to hold the parts, had forgot how nice it is to have a motherboard tray.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer, we are sorry to hear you are having trouble with our case. The case in question indeed supports Standard ATX motherboards (12 x 9.6 inches), any bigger and you may have a compatibility problem. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding compatibility. Respectfully - CMUSA Customer Support.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for desktop or HTPC

Pros: I am quite amazed how small this case is considering I can fit two 5.25 and two 3.5 bays, a regular sized power supply and regular size ATX motherboard! Simple unassuming design, thumbscrews, with perfect access to power & reset buttons especially when set vertically. I use it for my HTPC.

Cons: No opening below motherboard if you want to change out the CPU fan and have to get to the underside of the motherboard without taking it out. LED lights are very bright, but nothing some electrical tape will not fix.

Other Thoughts: Keep your drive rails! I wanted to install another drive and lost them. Get a power supply with a large side fan for best airflow since there is a grill for it on the side.
