4 out of 5 eggsCase is great. For a MITX, it's roomy.

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Long Graphics Card Support - Black

Pros: More space than I would expect for a MITX. Sturdy construction. The drive slides are a good fit. Plenty of room for a full-size video card. Nice, understated exterior.

Cons: 80mm included fan is as loud as... an 80mm fan tends to be. Pre-planning required, as accessing the MoBo after power supply is installed should be an activity reserved for small children and carnies. Fully modular power supply is nearly a requirement for this unit.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case after reading many of the reviews here, and on other sites. it seemed to be the best case for the money. Having installed my system now, I would recommend this case for nearly any MITX build that wouldn't be hampered by the long dimension. It's as long as a standard ATX case, more or less. but only a third as tall.

BE SURE TO PRE-PLAN YOUR DEVICES. I had to uninstall my power supply, because I forgot to plug a couple things in on the MoBo... Bad planning on my part. don't make the same mistake.

Other than that: It's beautiful. Good case, period. At the price: great case.

4 out of 5 eggsNice mItx case

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Long Graphics Card Support - Black

Pros: I've had this case for over 2 years and finally decided to build it out. I love that you can put a large video card and power supply in this unit. I also like that it gives you the option to install an optical drive. The other pro is the fact that they put little cut out loops on the chassis so you can use zip ties to manage the cabling.

Cons: It's not the smallest mITX case out there, but that's a factor of it's expandability. Also, cable management sucks if you have a non-modular power supply. I ended up hiding cables in the optical bay as well as under the hard drive cage. This definitely impacts the flow of air coming from the front fan. The other downside is the fact that the CPU is right under the power supply. You will definitely have to use a low profile cooler. I've stuck with the intel stock cooler since I'm only running a Pentium G3240 in this rig. There is just no way any kind of tower cooler will fit.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this on sale back when it was a shell shocker. Had I paid full price for it, I might be disappointed by its limitations. As it stands, it works well with a small power supply and Pentium CPU, and a full size GPU. I've been able to play older title games with good detail

5 out of 5 eggsGood looking ITX build

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Long Graphics Card Support - Black

Pros: So hey! Great looking case, and fits a nice APU build, the extended area for dedicated daughter board GPU I've not tested. But it really is a nice start to small CE building.

Cons: CM has made their product presentation a lot less attention. Was very underwhelmed.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Case

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Long Graphics Card Support - Black

Pros: No sharp edges.

Black on the inside and out (including the screws).

ATX PSU.

Air flow works well. The side 80mm fan blows right into the CPU. The front 120mm fan brings cool air directly into the case and there is space to add a second 120mm fan.

Thumb screws.

Ability to install a dual slot GPU.

Price.

Cons: The feet are plastic and very slippery on a hard surface (really need something rubber on the bottom).

The 80mm side fan is noisy. The sound is not from the movement of air. It has a pulsing sound and as the fan increases with speed, so does the pulsing sound. It is the only sound I hear from the system, so it's very annoying.

The case cables are extremely long (maybe a pro for some, but it's more cable to conceal).

Only one USB 3.0 on the front.

Areas of the case do not align 100%. For example, the top steel cover does not align to the plastic front cover correctly and the reset button tilts inward.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this case gets the job done. Of all the cons, the only one that really bothers me is the 80mm fan noise. I am building the system for someone else, so maybe they will not notice.

The price is great and this case gets almost everything right.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Price!

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Long Graphics Card Support - Black

Pros: I received a fantastic deal on this case! I believe I ended up paying a total of $15 after rebates.

Supports full size video cards and looks great!

I used this for my HTPC and it worked out great! The case looks pretty good and doesn't take up much room.

I didn't use the bay for a CD-drive or anything so I ended up managing all my cables in there and it worked out great! I just use an external DVD reader if I need to.

Cons: Cable mgmt is a little difficult but with a little effort I have GREAT air flow! Like I said in the pros - if you don't plan on using the CD-drive bay you will have plenty of room.

Other Thoughts: I replaced the fans that come with the case with some Fractal fans because they are uber quiet! My machine runs so smooth and quiet I can barely hear it from about 5 feet away.
