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

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.
