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

Pros: Looks good, great ventilation. I love that the case sets up on "legs" so it doesn't sit flush to the surface - allowed me to install my PSU with the fan blowing out the bottom. Blue LED case fan is a nice touch and fan works great. Window also a nice touch.
Used this case to build my first PC and not needing tools to open the case up was a huge plus for me because I opened and closed it probably 15 times.

Cons: Not really any good cable routing options. Got an SSD that's much smaller than the 3.5" bay and there aren't any trays to set it in. Would have been nice if the case came with a couple of those.

Other Thoughts: Got an extra fan to help keep the system cool and keep airflow in the desired direction. The fan runs based on temp feedback and it doesn't even spin until I have been playing games with high end graphics for a while. Case fan and vents do a great job on their own and I probably could have done without the extra, but I figured it wouldn't hurt.

EVGA 02G-P4-2763-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card

Pros: Graphics on max on every game I play and no issues. Runs quiet. No stock temperature issues.

Cons: Large board, but that's expected with a card of this quality

Other Thoughts: Bought this card to build my first PC and it's amazing. Used to have a pretty standard laptop (4 GB RAM and Intel graphics card) and had to basically turn graphics off...could hardly tell a tank from a rock in World of Tanks. Now with this card and 16 GB of RAM, I feel like I'm seeing a whole new world. First time I played a few games I was almost lost of some of the maps because everything looked the way it was intended to instead of looking like it was straight out of an N64 game.

Games: World of Tanks, Civ V, Dota2, Diablo III
all run on max graphics settings and look fantastic!

Pros: 16GB does a great job for every day tasks, running multiple programs, casual/mildly competitive gaming, etc. Got lucky enough to order with a discount so great price for the quality, plus they have lifetime warranty!

Cons: it doesn't win all my games for me...

Other Thoughts: I have had no issues with it and all my programs are running extremely fast in comparison to my 4GB RAM laptop I had previously. Used these to build my first PC and had a little bit of trouble getting them to lock into my motherboard at first, but I have been too gentle (out of fear of damaging the motherboard).
