Summary: The Cooler Master Elite 100 is an interesting option if you are looking for a small, slim case to hide your computer somewhere. Since it only has one fan (the power supply fan), you can also build a very quiet PC. It certainly lacks features when compared to regular cases, but it fits its goals.
Summary: The Coolermaster Elite 100 is a decent looking, well-built mini computer case. It is one of the few cases of its size that can house a mATX. While able to support both styles of motherboards, it can hold multiple drives. We like this fact as it you decide to use the Elite 100 as a home theatre case, you have more expansion for additional space as well all know music and video can eat up a single drive in the matter of days.
Summary: The SEED MA-280B is well-built and its sleek appearance makes it an attractive addition to a home theater. However, it seems to be designed specifically for the Atom boards produced by Intel. The I/O shield cutout is tailored for the Intel D945GCLF /2 , although 60W of power is much more than what Atom requires. The Intel Atom boards have loud fans but they can be tempered with fan control, so a reasonably quiet system is definitely possible with such a configuration.
