5 out of 5 eggsIt's like my old Shuttle XP

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

Pros: This case is very compact. I moved to this case from my old NZXT Vulcan mATX case and the size reduction was amazing! This case is shorter, and just about less than half the height of the Vulcan. It has great airflow (best configuration I have found is with the PSU fan upside down and the 80mm fan acting as exhaust).

I was able to cram a Zalman CNPS8900 CPU cooler in this thing and it fits with about a quarter of an inch under the PSU.

I have this case sitting on my desk to my left, and the front I/O is really nice and easily accessible. I charge my phone and from the front USB and even have my keyboard receiver plugged into the 2.0 USB since there are 3 USB ports, when most cases only feature 2.

I have a Rosewill 120mm red LED fan in the front, and it glows through the front mesh giving this case a mean but sexy look. If I were attracted to computers I would slap a ring on this one.

The power and Reset buttons are great. Very sturdy, with a nice and audible click when depressed.

And finally, I was able to fit two 2.5" drvies and one 3.5" drive with a 5.25" Fan Controller in this case. I also have an R9 280 which fits perfectly and still has more room to go.

Cons: Nothing worth noting.

Other Thoughts: I put an MSI A88XI AC WiFi capable motherboard in this case and take it to friends houses for LAN parties. It's small and and hardly take up any space which is nice.

Transportation is just about as clumsy as a normal mATX case though, considering there are no handles or easy way to carry this case. With both hands is optimal, but if your carrying a monitor and/or backpack with keyboards and mice, one handed transportation of this case can be a bit difficult, especially since it most likely will be heavy due to the components you'll out in this thing.

This is not a con, but merely something to consider based on what you're buying the case for. Otherwise, the small form factor makes up for everything when you see how much space you're saving. I cant this case in a backpack!

5 out of 5 eggsGood case

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

Pros: good cable management, easy to open, easy to install and access components, accepts full sized ATX PSU, 2 case fans (larger one upfront for intake, and a smaller side fan for exhaust), front connecter panel layout is simple and practical, power button feels robust, SSD mounting is very simple with supplied hardware.

Cons: none that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Used to construct a budget gaming rig. My case is cooled purely on air. I have not had any problems with overheating when playing games like TF2, L4D 1, and Dota 2 maxed.

Great case, highly recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing HTPC Case

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

Pros: Perfect size for my home theater PC set up. This is a great case and amazing price for either HTPC or portable PC.

Cons: Cable management is really hard and naturally unavoidable for case this size. I strongly suggest modular, preferably fully modular PSUs, custom cables would definitely also help avoid a spaghetti mess of cables inside the case.

5 out of 5 eggsMini-ITX Case that can fit Large Graphics Card!

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

Pros: Nice small small case - one of a very few that can fit a full size powerful graphics card. Allows you the option to install the most powerful single card GPU available in the present and the future.

Also it is designed to allow you to install an All-in-one water cooling.

I bought this case to convert my gaming PC from a full ATX to a Mini-ITX PC Gaming Rig

Cons: Takes some creativity for cable management for a clean looking build. There is a tutorial video from Cool Master that will show you how to do it.

Other Thoughts: There is an option to install a optical drive - if you do it will remove options for you to install extra SSD/HDD.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome ITX case for the price

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

Pros: This is an awesome ITX case for the price. Don't let a lack of 120mm fan for exhaust fool you, with some careful planning case temps are not bad in this case. Currently I have a Corsair H50 silent on just a intake cooler master fan that came with the case at 50 percent fan speed and a 7950 boost and a full atx 500 watt Seasonic S12 and I average around 31-33 C at idle with 40 C load max on a i4960K.

Still gives me about 20-40 C head room for overclocking.

Great cable management points. Case has little flex. Almost everything is removable.

Has room for watercooling/full size ATX card

Cons: So why the deduction in one egg? I wish I could give this something like a 4.5 as a lot of the newer graphics cards are shorter and less power hungry but here are the cons for the case.

- Minimum dust filtering. I knew this going into it, but the dust filtering is laughable at best and the filters are thing metal basically folded tabs that are held to the case. Meaning it could be easy to break the tabs.

- This isn't the quietest case unlike some of the fractal cases. The video card may be positioned next to your ear

- Rubber feet are poor. Easy fix, but case does have a habit of moving when plugging in drives

- HD audio front plug/USB header is really really long. You basically have to wrap it around the case

- No removable CD drive case which makes putting in something like a 7990 and trying to plug in the a PCI express power something of champions.

- my biggest complaint is the push pull configuration. There are tabs underneth the CD Drive cage to mount another hard drive, which would be nice if not for the fact that adding a fan for push pull with a standard radiator blocks this. In fact I am lucking to even get a slim fan in this space as the tabs for the hard drive also block putting a fan in. You have get creative.

For its flaws its still a well built case from Cooler Master. The "Extreme" ITX build is sort of a niche as mATX seems to be a better platform For all mid range builds it pretty fantastic otherwise for something like an mATX build you might want to wait for more cases to flood the market before diving into ITX.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

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

Pros: Great little case, super easy to build in. Lots of options for placing hard drives and ssds. Highly recommended for a mini-Itx build!

Cons: Had to remove the power supply a few times to get to things, but aside from that no cons!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case, plenty of room

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

Pros: Solid construction. Fits a full size ATX PSU. Lots of room for extra Hard drives.

Cons: I wish it would have included a 120mm filter for the intake fan, easy remedy though.
The front panel USB 3.0 cables are a bit long and hard to manage.

Other Thoughts: Make sure to check your dimensions, if you are going to buy a CPU tower cooler. I am using the "DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm GABRIEL CPU Cooler", which just barley fits under the PSU. I am not using a water cooler, which I think this case was meant for, since the front part of the case is pretty much empty.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazingly spacious case!

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

Pros: Lots of room to work with
Lots of mount points for hard drives and SSDs
Fans have 3 pin connectors with molex adapters
Fans are quiet
Supports a full-size ATX PSU, and long double height video cards.
Lots of airflow

Cons: Not much clearance between PSU and motherboard for a large air cooler. (But this case is designed for water cooling anyway.)
A few sharp edges that can scrape furniture if you're not careful...

Other Thoughts: great for a mini ITX gaming rig.

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: Fits full length graphics cards
ODD bay
Supports full length psu
Affordable

Cons: Other than UPS delaying shipment, none

Other Thoughts: I used this case for my first build ever - an HTPC gaming rig. It was really easy to work with - Cooler Master has an installation video on youtube for this case specifically which helped a ton. Front panel connectors are a little long, but if you get over it and actually do some cable management, they're no problem. Also - don't be an idiot like me and be sure to remove the PSU back-plate before threading your cables through.
