5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mini ITX Case

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Computer Case with Mesh Front Panel and Water Cooling Support

Pros: Price Point
Great case for a mini ITX Build.
Versatile and can fit long Video Cards.

Cons: Cooling is a challenge. As all small mini ITX Case. So no points deducted.

Experimented with various way of cooling, What this case lack is exhaust. If planning for air cooling, it is best to purchased a CPU cooler where you can reverse the fan so that air blows away from the cooler and install power supply with intake pulling air from case to exhaust heat since the power supply is directly on top of the CPU. Side fan still as intake. Temp dropped to 68 degrees from 92 running Prime95. Non overclocked.

Other Thoughts: Using Noctua LH9i fan reversed.

4 out of 5 eggsLove it

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Computer Case with Mesh Front Panel and Water Cooling Support

Pros: Great case, the size of the case is small enough to fit in a duffel bag for LAN party / travel. Fits a Cooler Master Seidon 120mm radiator in push pull in the front if you mount your SSD or mechanical hd on top. works well with my GTX 770 card and a full size 650w power supply

Cons: GET A MODULAR PSU, I did the dumb mistake of not spending the extra $20 therefore limiting airflow due to extra cables blocking some areas.

cable management can get a bit tricky but doable

Other Thoughts: Great case I would buy it again for any future LAN party or just tiny computer builds.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh Quality - Small Size

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Computer Case with Mesh Front Panel and Water Cooling Support

Pros: -Mini ITX with two pci slots
-Drives all fit as advertised
-Loved the solid state drive location
-Comes with one fan which i did not use
-Power light is just the right level of brightness

Cons: -Power Supply awkwardly sticks out of case about a half inch.
-Rubber Mounts made some of my hard drives rather noisey
-No USB3 adapter for non USB3 motherboards making two ports completely useless to me.

Other Thoughts: - Celeron J1800 Embedded Motherboard
-Rosewill 430W Bronze Certified Power Supply
-Three Hard Drives and One Solid State
(uses around 35 watts idle)

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Computer Case with Mesh Front Panel and Water Cooling Support

Pros: Love this case. Its large enough for a full size power supply and if you want a couple of hard drives. Great price and the finish is great. Put together a nice little build for a family member. I would highly recommend it. This is my 3rd Cooler Master case and I have to say they are now officially my favorite.

Cons: I hate saying none, but some might be a bit disappointed that its a bit larger than some ITX cases, but its smaller than a small ATX so how can you go wrong.

Other Thoughts: The only thing that might have been nice is a card reader. not sure how they could do it since the 5.25 fits directly above the fan. maybe on the side since the USB 2.0 is a single port.

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME CASE!

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Computer Case with Mesh Front Panel and Water Cooling Support

Pros: Yes Case-hackers, it is that fantastic. Can I give 10 eggs ?

Read the reviews & got one.
Like it so much , bought 2 more.

Pack it with an Asus H97I-plus mobo, your on!

No flaws in any 3 of these. They rock!

One can put a heavy duty standard ATX, and it is a go.

Has reboot switch and power switch and audio.
usb 2 & 3 on front!

Case is black metal. Inside is awesome to attach stuff.

Easiest case I have ever worked on!

The people who designed this case were super-smart.

Cons: -

Other Thoughts: usb ports from a Asus H97I-plus match this case perfectly.

You can put loads of HDs & SSDs in here.. It rocks...

Air flow inside is perfect.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Computer Case with Mesh Front Panel and Water Cooling Support

Pros: Inexpensive, lots of space for installation for a mini-ITX case.

Cons: Almost all of the SSD mounting locations make it impossible to attach a standard SATA power connector (the wires usually come out at 90 degrees, which runs into the surface you're mounting the SSD on)

Other Thoughts: I removed the small side fan - seems redundant in such a small, well ventilated case with low power components.

4 out of 5 eggsDrive Hassels

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Computer Case with Mesh Front Panel and Water Cooling Support

Pros: The case is fairly small and stylish and it has a full-size DVD Drive tray 5.5 wide. It is lightweight and easy to move around.

Cons: Overall it is a pretty tight fit. A lot depends on the placement of the cables on the motherboard, so that is something to consider. I dislike the drive configuration and the drive mounting grommets. It is easier if the drives you want to install can all be horizontal and close to each other. The primary reason I say this is because how you have to route the cables to the drives.

Other Thoughts: May be possible to improve this case with a 5.5 multiuse drive bay. I am thinking maybe a drive bay that can handle a slim dvd/br: HD; SSD combo. Maybe some kind of kit with 2 or more drives might be nice as an accessory.

5 out of 5 eggsRoomy and Well built

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Computer Case with Mesh Front Panel and Water Cooling Support

Pros: good cable management. built very well, no sharp edges, very sturdy metal and plastic. The inside has more room than you'd expect, you can tell they though the dimensions out very well. I'm using this with an ASUS itx mobo, Zalman low-profile fan and G.Skill Ripjaw RAM and there is enough clearance for the power supply and back of the DVD drive. The PSU mount is reversible if you want to mount it fan-up. even with 4 fans I have no rattling. Looks nice, bright LEDs

Cons: None. It's exactly what it should be,

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, small case

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Computer Case with Mesh Front Panel and Water Cooling Support

Pros: 1. Variable mount places for 2.5/3.5 devices (which are needed)
2. Full size GPU support
3. Full size ATX PSU support

Cons: No cons

Other Thoughts: I was impressed this case was able to fit a 5.25 OD, a 2.5 SSD, a push/pull H80i, 2 sticks of RAM, and a Gigabyte Windforce GTX 970. It is all very cramped, but cable management can be achieved. The 2.5 mount under the 5.25 bay is not usable with the radiator from the H80i, but that is fine, as the mount on the bottom of the case near the MB works great.

Looking towards the front of the box, I had to have the radiator mounted with the pipes running from the left to avoid conflicts with other devices. With a full size ATX PSU, I would not recommend a 5.25 OD, as there is almost no room, but you can make it work.

Don't overtighten fan shrouds with the h80i, the fan will rub the shroud (I usually am not prone to overtightening).

It didn't look like the Windforce GTX 970 would fit, since the backplate is so long. The backplate support actually rests against the radiator at the front of the case. Supposedly Gigabyte is coming out with a GTX 970 for mini itx very soon (Nov 2014). I will probably be making the switch and re-purposing my current one in my larger rig.

System:
EVGA Z87 Stinger Mini ITX
Intel Core i5 4670K
Corsair H80i, push/pull configuration
Gigabyte Windforce GTX 970
EVGA 750W Supernova PSU
16 GB DDR3-2400 G-Skill
500 GB Samsung EVO SSD
5.25" Pioneer BD/R

5 out of 5 eggsI like it overall

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Computer Case with Mesh Front Panel and Water Cooling Support

Pros: I like the drive mount options.
Solid construction. Could use it as a step to reach something high...
Its fairly pretty.

Cons: The holes for the risers had threads... After I made them by forcing the risers for the mobo in. This may be by design because they include a screw driver adapter that grips the riser screws nice and tight. They are in for ever if you can get them in. (-:

This minor aggravation is more than offset by the wonderful price and the otherwise wonderful construction.

Other Thoughts: none
