3 out of 5 eggsAn urgent update

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

Pros: Supports a push-pull 120mm All-In-One radiator.

Cons: Front mesh restricts airflow quite a bit. Even removing the fabric mesh doesn't help much.

Other Thoughts: Using a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer and an i5-4570 running prime95 with the fabric mesh temps reach 75C. With the fabric removed temps drop 3C. With the front off temps maxed out at 64C. Having the same setup in the Elite 120 temps max at 66C. I'm rather dissapointed. I was expecting more from a case like this. Given the price it's still a great case, just not for an All-In-One cooler.

5 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: Surprisingly roomy, it's been some time since I built a computer, and it went together easier then I was expecting.
There is plenty of space (~1 1/2 inches) between the stock AMD cooler and the power supply.
The loudest part of my system is the stock AMD cooling fan, so it's hard to say how loud the case fans are, since I can't hear them over the cpu fan.

Cons: Both very minor but:
The side hard drive bracket is difficult to remove/install while a motherboard is in place, you'll have to attach the hard drive to the bracket while it's in the case.
The cables for the front IO panel are several inches longer then the case is, so you'll have to deal with the excess length.

Other Thoughts: Despite using screws to connect the back half of the 5.25 drive bracket, it's not actually removable (it's riveted to the front of the case).

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: Looks cool, good ventilation, durable. I've had this over a week and it's great. It's a bit bigger than expected, but still a good size. Make sure to have everything connected before putting on the Power Supply. It can be a bit hard to make changes with the PSU in it. But that's what you get when you go for smaller Chassis. I may get another.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect little case

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

Pros: Nice, clean look. Large front mesh face with 120mm fan. 2 USB 3.0 and 1 USB 2.0 front connectors. PSU extender means standard ATX power supply's can be used. Plenty of space for very long graphics cards. Up to 13.5" (343mm) in length. Very sturdy case. Plenty of tie down points for managing cables.

Cons: Internal USB 3.0 plug is rather long considering the nature this case was made for. Included 80mm side fan interferes with CPU airflow if using the stock Intel heatsink. Max CPU cooler height is just 65mm (2.5"), although this is to be expected in a case this size.

Other Thoughts: Overall a very great case for the money. I have always been a fan of Cooler Master cases as I have 3 others, (Storm Trooper, CM690 Advanced II USB 3.0, Elite 343) and this case is of the same quality. The only thing I would add is a handle.

5 out of 5 eggsLovely

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

Pros: Everything you need in a case.
- USB3.0 on the front is amazing
- Just big enough for a standard size PSU and medium-small sized CPU cooler (Scythe Shuriken Rev.B Low Profile Cooler)
- Enough room for all cables, even a non-modular PSU.
- Great price with or without rebate

Cons: The front-panel's cables are a bit too long for my liking. But at the same time, it's nice because you can choose where you want the "excess" cable to be, which is important depending on your internal hardware space requirements.

5 out of 5 eggswell ventilated box

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

Pros: Mesh design moves plenty of air for cooling, did install 1 extra 120mm fan by removing 3.5 drive bracketHave 256GB SSD mounted below 51/2 drive bay. Cable management is very important, Mine failed to to a so call modular cable system, No fault of this case. Looks awesome!! Well thought out!

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsinteresting design,worth a look

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

Pros: multiple tie down points,multiple HDD/SDD pointing areas,looks good,lights are OK on brightness

Cons: it wasn't free

Other Thoughts: this was my first foray into the world of MITX .wanted a whisper quiet HTPC
PLAN OUT YOUR BUILD!!!
It's cramped with my H80i installed .yes i do have it in a push pull setup with no modifications.make sure to use a modular power supply or you will have the cables every where.

All and All a fun system to build.temps with the h80i are excellent.i think my next build will be in a different case due to fan locations or lack there of.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Deal

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

Pros: I love this case, it is small enough to fit on my desk and big enough to fit CPU water cooler.

Cons: With all I wanted to stuff in this case I had to create a new location for the HHD, by drilling out 2 new holes along the left side. Because of this I could only get a shorter Video Card(length wise, height is more than enough room).

5 out of 5 eggseasy to assemble

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

Pros: it was easy to assemble. This was my first build for HTPC after 12 years using Biostart NM70I-1037U Ver. 6.x motherboard and CORSAIR CSM Series CS550M.
Just followed the instructions from the video

Cons: The box is huge, it does not fit in my media console. I am placing it outside. It would be better if the height of the box is reduced by 2 inches.

Other Thoughts: I had removed the side grill and fan.
MY configuraiton:
Biostar 1037u Celeron motherboard
Crosair CSM Seres 550M
Crosair Vengence 2x8GB Memory sticks
120GB 2.5 HDD
