4 out of 5 eggsCooler Master Elite 130

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

Pros: Nice case overall, comes with plenty of screws/standoffs. Cable management is fine. Did not use water cooling but used the stock Intel fan which left about 1-1/4" clearance between the top of the HS/Fan and my Corsair CX500M Power supply. Case is reasonably priced and look great.

Cons: The one big con for me was the power/reset button on the front of the case. I am older so I need a lot of light to see. This button is very difficult to see and nearly impossible to feel with your fingers as it is flush with the case..

While installing the MB, the case front was away from me so I reached around to push the power button and was unable to find it for some time, finally I "found" it... Click, nothing, click, nothing.. Ok MB dead? I can get no response from MB at all, (Gigabyte GA-B85N Phoenix Wi-Fi)..

Called Gigabye they walked me through several procedures but no joy.. Return board to NE for replacement, week and 1/2 later, new MB arrives. This time I assemled on a different work area so the case front was toward me when I pushed the power button. Push, nothing, push again, nothing, wait... WHAT another bad board? Look closer... Flashlight out looking at power button, now I can see! Guess what, I was pushing the reset button duh!

Now I'm feeling pretty stupid but not too, too stupid because my 22 yo son also pushed the reset button. Bottom line, I feel the power/reset button design is lacking/terrible...

Other Thoughts: Otherwise this case is great..

4 out of 5 eggsLooks like a big shoe box.

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

Pros: It does what I need it to do, in the form factor I wanted, without breaking the bank. Fits a 770, and 3 2.5" HDDs.

Cons: Not thrilled about having to use a low(ish) profile heatsink. Anything much bigger than the stock intel brick won't clear the PSU hanging directly above the mobo.

Tiny side fan is cute, but would have honestly preferred a normal fan over there.

Overall construction is pretty good, but the gap right above the rear PCI-e slots bugs me. Not a huge deal.

Other Thoughts: This is not a tiny case. It won't fit in a normal backpack if tote'n it around is your goal. That being said, you can fit a full size card in it, and it's still considerably easier to carry around then a normal tower.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

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

Pros: Great case, fit a Sapphire R9 290 Vapor-X (just barely - card dims. are listed at 12.01" x 4.49" L x H) I had to unscrew the CD drive holder and bend it out of the way a little to get the card in. Rescrewed it back afterwards.
Hard drives are mounted right to the frame, and all over the place. It's pretty great.
120mm Seidon CPU cooler fits and works great, kept the stock fan too - so got double the fan action going.
Tiny but packs a punch

Cons: That R9 290 vents into the case since it's not a reference blower model that blows out of the case. Hot air gets trapped at the top and around the card since no fan is there. Card runs a little louder to compensate.
I take off the metal shell of the case to let the card run cool if I want it to be near silent.
Maybe if I can fit a fan at the top corner it'll help that hot air exit.

Other Thoughts: Case is dense. Modular power supply is a must. I fear having to go in and try to install a new hard drive cause it's so dense. But it's so glorious having a tiny computer with such power.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple and small

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

Pros: - tiny size
- longer graphics card support
- full PSU size support

Cons: None at this point, though I wish there was removable dust filter at front, as it needs cleaning very often, as main intake.

4 out of 5 eggsCoolermaster 130 Mini itx

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

Pros: Small form factor. Hopefully i will get the rebate. Built a gaming rig for the living room. So far so good

Cons: Needs additional cooling. and extra 120 mm fan would be great.

Other Thoughts: Good for sitting near the tv. Have an R9 280x video card in it. Generates some heat. Consider getting a modular power supply as cable management is difficult.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

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

Pros: Fits a Corsair H80i very well, however, you lose the capability to use a 3.5" drive on the bottom. A 2.5" drive will still fit however.

Build quality is nice. Cable management is not bad but its an mITX chassis so you can't expect too much. The unit's footprint is very small making it excellent if you are trying to put this on a desk or are simply short on overall office space.

Will take a standard PSU.

For the price you get far more than you pay for.

Cons: Dust filtration could be far better, however, nothing an air compressor wont fix.

PSU hangs over the I/O ports on the back. Nothing major but it can be a burden when trying to hook up devices or if you move the unit alot.

Other Thoughts: Build Specs:
A10-7870k
Corsair H80i
GA-F2A88XN-WIFI
SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze
G.SKILL Sniper Series 16GB 2400Mhz

4 out of 5 eggsMaybe not optimal for my needs.

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

Pros: Nice looking case, front-facing USB 3.0 ports

Cons: Subpar instructions, tight for for three 3.5" drives

Other Thoughts: It's a nice-looking case. My main problem is that while it technically does accommodate three 3.5" drives, as advertised, it is an extremely tight and frustrating fit. The drives on the bottom and on the side cage end up within a hair of one another. So I can't really recommend this one for a NAS build, which is exactly what I was doing. My other minor issue is with the available instructions as they're a bit light. There's just an illustration on how to remove the front cover, and I followed that illustration to the best of my availability. When I did, I had to force it a bit more than felt comfortable and when the front finally popped off, a small, mystery piece of plastic shot across the room. Never a good sign. So I was worried the front would never sit right due to a missing piece of the assembly, but thankfully all was well as it was clearly not that important. But now I'll perpetually wonder where in the world that piece of plastic came from.

If I were putting together anything other than a NAS and I knew I wouldn't have to remove the front cover, it's probably a case I'd pick up again. But for my needs, I probably could have done better.
