Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Computer Case with Mesh Front Panel and Water Cooling Support
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good size and pretty easy to work with if you plan accordingly. Case build quality is consistent with other Cooler Master cases. Fully painted inside. Fans are quiet and sufficient for reasonable air flow.

Cons: This case has the worst drive mounting scenario I have ever worked with. You can mount a SSD under the 5.25 drive bay bracket. Additional Hard drive has provisions for only one on case floor with hard drive screws through the floor of the case. Drives will be a pain to switch after case is loaded.

Other Thoughts: The case will hold a full size PSU. Due to the size of the case a modular would be helpful. Be careful what video card you use. I barely got a 9 inch ATI to fit. Docked an Egg for the Hard Drive situation. Could never use this case for a server unless you like to fabricate.

BIOSTAR NM70I-1037U Intel Celeron 1037U Dual-Core 1.8GHz Intel NM70 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Bought this to build sff Media Computer. The set up works fine for this purpose. Very inexpensive build compared to separate Motherboard CPU purchase. Runs Windows 7 Professional 32 bit with ease.

Cons: Very difficult Bios to manipulate. Lots of difficulty with one keyboard and plus or minus keys. I had to install ps2 keyboard in order to change bios to read from usb drive first instead of hard drive. Docked an egg for the bios problems.

Other Thoughts: Do not expect to play 1080p with on board video. I tried just for giggles. Too much stutter. I will work great with almost any entry level video card installed very well to both play and stream video.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Cons: None
