1 out of 5 eggsAbsolute Junk.

Pros: Nothing at all.

Cons: All standoffs and screws stripped, took me 2 hours to remove it and on top of that, it ruined my motherboard because this wouldn't come out because of the stupid, stripped, threads in this case. This was supposed to be built for my fathers birthday, but now thats ruined. Thanks Cooler Master!

4 out of 5 eggsCooler Master Elite 430

Pros: I love this case, used it for my first build. made of quality metal on with a bit of plastic on the front. fully black painted on the inside too. it's got enough room for a solid mid size build. with a very large windowed side panel with fan attachment. the blue ascetics go great with black/white components, and there are enough slots to do virtually anything (within reason).

Cons: the PCIe slots for inserting GPUS and other components cannot be put back on after they are taken off. if you live in with pets or a lot of dust the front docking bays have gotten pretty dirty on mine, so make sure to maintain them with duster or something that can keep the front intake fan and bays.

Other Thoughts: over its a great case for mid range builds. cheap, durable. great case that can take care of anything you throw in it with ease.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case, lots of airflow.

Pros: Great case, has lots of airflow and plenty for room for fans. Shipping was faster then I originally though :O!

Cons: The only reason I took off an egg was because 2 of my screws holes that you use to mount your motherboard with stripped easily. All the others are very solid but 2 of them stripped and I think those were the only flaws when manufacturing.

Other Thoughts: All in all for the price it was a great case. I'll buy it again for the same price I paid for. Great case non the less and plenty of room for airflow.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case for the Price

Pros: Overall Very Good Case for the Price, Good Cable Management.

Cons: Only comes with one 120MM fan. The case has space for 5 fans. The CPU was making a lot of noise when it was running with 1 fan, and was heating up fast.

Spent Extra Money $20 and bought 4 additional fan. Wondering if its worth it or I could have got a better case for the $20 more that comes with 4 or 5 fans.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Really good case, especially for the price. Lots of room for the components. The locking mechanisms that replace screws for mounting the 5.25" and 3.5" drives is really solid and secure. The non-motherboard side has a window to look through to see if anything is wrong with the computer from the outside. Great airflow efficiency.

Cons: Non that I can think about. The only con I can think about is that the Power and Reset buttons are silver and engraved with their respective symbols, which is the only way to tell them apart outside of knowing that the top button is the Power button and the bottom button is the Reset button. This can be confusing the first few times, but you'll get used to it.

Other Thoughts: There are two things I would like to mention that could be either pros or cons, depending on your tastes. The first is the front fan that comes installed in the case is lit with a blue LED. Aesthetically it looks good, but I know this might put some people off. The other is the shape of the case is rather generic.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far So good :)

Pros: sturdy, plastic isn't to flimsy, nice little blue led, arrived fast

Cons: could use a few longer case connectors

Other Thoughts: overall it seems like a nice case.
I bought it for build that I made for my friends birthday.

I had originally bought a LOGISYS Computer CS308RD Red, it was very bad, felt cheap, had a broken clear side cover, and the wiring to the power wasn't even in properly.
when I received this case I was much more happy with it.

1 out of 5 eggsLooks nice, flimsy chassis

Pros: This case generally has a nice appearance. Lots of air flow potential with mounts for quite a few big fans. Low cost.

Cons: The metal used for the chassis is complete garbage. On top of that, the punch-outs for mobo cards are permanent. But not only that...they have tabs so that you have to remove the mobo completely in order to remove any individual one. Even one wrong twist and the supports between slots bend. When I went in to remove the mobo so I could punch these out, I found out that the spacer screws for the mobo had actually stripped the cheap, soft metal threading. So now I can't even use the case.

Other Thoughts: I'm going to be returning this ASAP. Never purchasing Cooler Master again and making sure my system builder friends don't either. This was supposed to be a build for my mother's birthday, and she was really excited about it. I had ordered all the parts and shipped them to her so I could put it together at the house. 3 hour drive for this piece of junk to postpone the process, and now I get to risk getting denied on the rebates for all of the other parts or risk sending off the rebates and ending with equipment that was originally DOA. Since I purchased the parts piece-by-piece over a period of time, many of the rebate offers need to be mailed off sooner than I'm likely to find a replacement.

1 out of 5 eggs3 hours later .. defective power button!

Pros: cheap $30 case
case is shiny
they give you screws

Cons: power button does not work .. renders the case worthless!
I could not install 2 fans on top as the CPU - Heatsink was in the way, another reason I bought this case (worthless)

Other Thoughts: 1.5 hours to tear apart my old computer ..
1.5 hours to put it all back together in this case ..
Only to find out the power button does not work on this case ?!?!
2 hours later I have back together in my old case (works fine)
I give up .. this thing is junk .. going back (or into the trash)

Manufacturer Response:

Good Morning Thomas,

I apologize you're having issues with your Power Button as I can send you a replacement through our CM Fanzone Parts Request at the link below. The Elite 430 is capable of CPU Heat-sinks as tall as 163 mm | 6.4 inches, now depending on the type and orientation of the heat-sink, will determine if you can mount two 120 mm fans on the top of the case.

I look forward to your response.

Regards,
Felinni M.
