5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding value

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Long Graphics Card Support - Black

Pros: Price - $20 after MIR. Very easy to work on for a mini-ITX case. Looks great on my home theater shelf. Black interior. No sharp edges.

Cons: Sound dampening isn't the best. Sub-par airflow. Loud 80mm fan.

Other Thoughts: Great case for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Long Graphics Card Support - Black

Pros: A great looking, mini-ITX case that can host a game-based PC and can be easily stored after use or brought to friends' house.

I had no problem installing my ATX non-modular PSU. Plenty of space to tuck away the unused molex power cable, extra length of my 24-pin power cable, extra length of my 8-pin cpu power cable and plenty of space to route my two SATA power cables.

A reviewer stated that he had a hard time fitting his ODD; I don't know if I got lucky or the problem has been fixed, but my ODD fitted perfectly.

To remove the front plate, you must pinch the two rounded pins at the bottom of the plate and push them a little bit. Then, do the same with the top two rounded pins and the plate should easily come off.

Cons: The two included fans have 3-pin connectors. You may wish to upgrade to 4-pin fans if you want your motherboard to control the chassis fan speed.

Other Thoughts: System is:
Intel i3-4150
MSI H97I-AC
GSKILL 2x4GB Ripjaws
MSI GTX650OC
EVGA 430W ATX PSU non-modular
Liteon blu-ray burner
OCZ Vertex2 SSD
WD Sata 500Gb

4 out of 5 eggsdecent though poor cpu cooling

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Long Graphics Card Support - Black

Pros: nice compact mini itx case. well built

Cons: there is no reason that mini itx cases especially this one to have such a poor designed cpuy cooling , with out its fan on cpu temps climb. try designing something correctly.

Other Thoughts: really disappointing the terrible cpu cooling designs in most mini itx cases , guess if they built it right the first time there would be no reason to build more aside from aesthetics. if you want anything done right do it your self if your capable

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case for small boards

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Long Graphics Card Support - Black

Pros: The case does pretty much everything well.

You've got enough space to fit four fans (2x120, 1 for the cpu, and one 80mm provided on the side).

Despite the size, you've got decent air flow.

Fitting three total HDD/SSDs is a surprise, but the bigger one is fitting all of those drives and a full size optical drive.

Cons: Just a few minor complaints here. They shouldn't be enough to prevent a purchase.

The cover for the DVD drive is easily damaged during removal. You should work one side off first, to avoid stressing the plastic clips excessively.

The instructions are pretty much worthless. See notes below for my observations.

The default cable routing is less than ideal. You'll need to reroute pretty much everything to make sure that it doesn't get in the way.

Other Thoughts: Put simply, the case is excellent for the price. You can get quite a lot into the box, and it doesn't melt down. I'd recommend a buy to anyone who's looking for a good media center PC.

After installing the motherboard, run the front panel cables. They need to be rerouted from the default passage, and they're the biggest pain to get positioned.

Once the front panel wires are done, install that extra fan. It'll be difficult to fit in, but the extra air flow is worth it.

Install all the SATA cables next. Smaller ones are better in this case, and the longest ones you'll want to use are 6-8"

Install the HDD/SSDs, then make sure the SATA cables are tucked away.

Install the ODD, making sure to connect the SATA data cable.

Undo the rear power supply frame, connect it to the PSU, and fish the wiring into the case.

Install the GPU.

Connect the power cables, slide the PSU in, and use the side rails and a bunch of zip ties to secure the power lines.



I'd recommend a modular power supply. There's room to fit in four 6/8 pin power cables and everything else you might find on a 750+ watt PSU, but it's a tight fit. A few extra dollars are definitely worth it.

4 out of 5 eggsgenerally good

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Long Graphics Card Support - Black

Pros: - versatile and plentiful HDD/SDD options (up to 4x2.5+1x3.5)
- good airflow
- fans are quiet
- not flimsy (but light)
- fits regular power supply
- plenty of room
- allows for liquid cooling
- USB3

Cons: - very big for a case that can only house a mini-itx MB
- optical drive bay was not properly machined and I literally had to take a hammer to it (stripped some paint but it's not visible)
- front panel looks a bit cheap

Other Thoughts: - wish they'd add a third 2.5 -> 3.5 adapter tray
- it's wider than many micro-atx boards - with minor modifications (mostly relocate the Chipset fan, move MB closer to the edge, add a third slot) this could accommodate micro-atx MBs without increasing overall dimensions

4 out of 5 eggsVery Nice Case:

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Long Graphics Card Support - Black

Pros: Good construction and case layout and plenty of room for an mITX case. Utilizes the ubiquitous ATX PSU. Very good value as well.

Cons: Very large for a mITX case, which may or may not be a con.

Other Thoughts: Excellent case as long as you know the size to begin with. I purchased this for a budget build and whilst I would have preferred a smaller form factor I knew what I was getting to begin with and am happy with the purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Long Graphics Card Support - Black

Pros: This is a great mini-ITX case. The fans are quiet, and it looks sweet. Cable management was easy, it uses a full ATX PSU, and it will house a full sized, 2 slot graphics card. I was really surprised how happy this case made me. This case is housing a 25W AMD Kabini HTPC.

Cons: Not the size of a raspberry pi? For real though, no cons.

Other Thoughts: AMD Kabini 2.05Ghz
4Gb Gskill ram
MSI AM1l Mobo
Spare HDD and PSU and DVDRW
Surprisingly fast HTPC
