5 out of 5 eggsWas

Pros: This case was more than I expected to start with...its larger than expected but the slots everything was there, all parts and pieces. It was easy to install everything,hard drive atx gpu, hard drives, sd card reader usbs, DVD drive, It came with one 120mm blue led fan, cable management was a breeze. IT WAS NOT FLIMSY CHEAPO METAL, Its got alot of steel built into it, true to the name cooler master this is a gaming pc so there were plenty of room for fans and cooling. The plexiglass view port is big I can see everthing and it looks so NIICE!

Cons: the only only only thing that I could find i didnt like was the plexiglass window is held in by plastic rivets(go figure when they used metal for everything but the front panel) I may have to replace with little screws in the future

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case for the Price

Pros: Well built case with quality connections and all black interior. You won't find these features on other cases at this price. The 3 pin/molex fan that it comes with is pretty nice and lights up bright.

Cons: Very difficult cable management. If you are planning on doing a more advanced build with lots of connections/cooling DO NOT GET THIS CASE.

Other Thoughts: I got this case for $20 after all the coupons/rebates and I could not be happier. If you are looking to pay more than $40-$50 for this case, I would look around for a better deal or different case, because I do not think it is worth that much or you could find it cheaper. Also, I would definitely recommend getting a modular PSU to help with the cable management issue.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat medium sized case

Pros: Sleek design, TONS of fan locations, quality materials, bottom mount PSU location, big side window with vents and fan location.

Cons: Completely subjective; the blue LEDs for the power and HDD activity indicator are blindingly bright in a dark room.

Other Thoughts: The front panel USB/Audio inputs fell into the case, but by taking off the front panel and adding washers to the small black screws that support it, the problem is easily remedied. I will continue to buy Cooler Master products.

3 out of 5 eggsGood budget case

Pros: -nice big side window
-comes with bright blue LED case fan
-great price

Cons: -when you put the screws on to mount the mobo, the case is very flimsy so 1 of my screws ended up getting stuck, spent an hour trying to remove that 1 screw from the case.
-the top 2 fan slots interfere with both slots of RAM on my MSI H81M-P33, very disappointed that Cooler Master didn't leave enough room for the RAM.
-don't understand why there would be an extra fan slot on the bottom of the case (next to the PSU), when most PSU's would cover up 2 of those holes anyways, oh well, not a big deal.

4 out of 5 eggsM_Raff

Pros: Great price. I picked mine up for $25. I love that the power supply goes on the bottom of the case. The case also has great airflow with the purchase of additional fans.

Cons: I wish the cables for the audio and USB were just 2 inches longer. I've got to stretch them to the max, which gives me no option to hide them. Also, I had 1 stand off screw strip out.

Other Thoughts: Good case all around. Would be nice to have USB 3.0 on the front of the case.

Tool-less drive bays.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: Spacious insides, everything fit in quite nicely

Cons: There were not enough of their "toolless" clamps to fill the drive bays in the case. This was a huge let down to me. I purchased it specifically because of the number of bays it had.

2 out of 5 eggsNo Cable Managment... But Airflow.

Pros: So far my motherboard/cpu has not hit above 45 Celsius. Nice airflow.

Cons: No cable management slots at all... Less than 2mm of room between the motherboard bracket and the back of the case. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money on another model. :/

Manufacturer Response:

Good Afternoon Marjorie,

I apologize your Elite 431 is not working correctly as I appreciate your constructive feedback regarding the wire-management as it can be a challenge putting some thought into the wiring orientation, we understand it will be different for everyone due to the many configurations and components available. You can always contact us directly through our CM Fanzone Live Chat, Support Ticket or phones at the link below for assistance.

I look forward to your response.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty alright case.

Pros: It works and is pretty cool looking. Blue LED is neat. Fairly cheap.

Cons: For $60, you should also get a fan on the rear, but I guess it's not that big of a deal.
