Cooler Master Elite 430 - Mid Tower Computer Case with All-Black Interior and Windowed Side Panel
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Looks great.
Easy to remove panels.
Large front fan with many extra fan slots.

Cons: None (maybe, see below)

Other Thoughts: I don't believe it matches the ATX case specs correctly. About half the screw holes don't match up at all on the mobo and have to go without.
Also, the PCI slots didn't line up with the case slots either, my GPU was hitting the seperators. Had to remove the mobo, install the GPU to it and pick new screw holes that would allow it to align properly.

I still give 5 stars because I'm pretty sure the problem was with the mobo.

Motherboard: EVGA X58 FTW3 132-GT-E768-TR LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

GPU: ZOTAC ZT-50313-10M GeForce GTX 560 Ti - 448 Cores (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16

EVGA X58 FTW3 132-GT-E768-TR LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good layout and design.
RAM slots very snappy, makes for comfortable install.
CPU slot had me worried at first but ends up being just fine.

Cons: I don't believe it matches the ATX case specs correctly. About half the screw holes don't match up at all and have to go without.
Also, the PCI slots didn't line up with the case slots either, my GPU was hitting the seperators. Had to remove the mobo, install the GPU and pick new screw holes that would allow it to align properly.

Other Thoughts: Even after the above con, I still give 4 eggs cause of how well it performs. Plus the software that comes with is nice and can overclock with ease.
The other reason is that there's a chance the case is the culprit in being out of alignment. I doubt it because that's really the only spec to worry about when making a case but still possible.

ZOTAC ZT-50313-10M GeForce GTX 560 Ti - 448 Cores (Fermi) 1280MB 320-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Runs everything at max or near-max settings while keeping 60 fps, usually 100+
Looks pretty cool too.

Cons: This thing is huge.

Other Thoughts: Had a lot of trouble getting it to fit in the ATX case properly but I'm pretty sure that's the mobo not being made to the right specs.
Was worried that I would need SLi for my gaming rig, after getting this card, that would be absolute overkill.
