Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced
19 December 2012
Excerpt: The new case is the Elite 120 Advanced which is a total different animal than the Elite 100. The Elite 100 is more like a vertical HTPC enclosure while the 120 Advanced is a more squared true SFF case. Yes, they are aimed at two different users. The gamer will without a doubt opt for the Elite 120 Advanced as it can hold a full-sized GPU, even two and a standard configuration power supply.
Summary: It's apparent that Cooler Master designed the Elite 120 Advanced to be as affordable and compact as possible while offering enough space for housing a fairly powerful mini-ITX system. While it is a rather small case, it's overly large for a basic Atom or Fusion based media PC, considering the power requirements these types of machines require.
Summary: Here I sit really torn as to which way to go with the Elite 120 Advanced. Its main competition the BitFenix Prodigy is better equipped, and in my opinion, it took the design to the edge, without making things look gross. On the flip side, that chassis is much more expensive, and doesn't fit into the realm of "normal" designs like the Elite 120 does.

Summary: The Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced Case is a small form factor case with lots of functionality, despite it's size. It looks great, is lightweight, fits mini-ITX form factor motherboards, standard ATX PSUs, lots of ventilation, 2 fans and plenty of drive bays. This case has major bang-for-the-buck!
Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced M-ITX PC Chassis Review

Conclusion: So there we have it, the Elite 120 Advanced M-ITX chassis from Cooler Master, I can honestly say this chassis was an absolute pleasure to work with, when I took it out of the box I didn’t really think much of it, its design is that of a large shoe box at first glance, but after spending time building the system I came to realise that everything is where it needs to be, providing superb functionality throughout.
Conclusion: The Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced case is the result of solid design with a real sense of what system builders need. The fact that it's a mere $49.99 is a bonus. A min ITX case doesn't have the expansion capability of a full sized case, but a 5.25" bay and three hard drive bays will satisfy the needs of the majority of users. Any double-slot graphics card will fit, and the new Z77-based mini ITX motherboards available will accept any LGA1155 CPU you like.
Pros: Uses standard ATX power supplies (preferably modular), Full sized 5.25" device bay, Three front USB ports (1 USB 3.0), Excellent ventilation for hard drives, Aggressively priced, Lots of tie down points for cable management
Cons: No intake air filters, Very little clearance above motherboard, Limited ventilation for processor and motherboard, No integrated memory card reader

8 August 2012
Summary: The Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced is one beast of a Mini-ITX case. With the growing popularity of Mini-ITX builds this case is a feature-filled surefire contender in the Mini-ITX case market.
Excerpt: The Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced is a small case for Mini-ITX motherboards, targeted to users who want to build a small yet powerful gaming computer, since it supports the installation of video cards up to 13.5” (343 mm) long and power supplies up to 8.7” (220 mm) deep. Let’s see if this case is a winner.
Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced Case Review: Little in Almost Every Way

Conclusion: My experiences with the Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced remain largely positive despite the test results; end users who need an inexpensive Mini-ITX case with stellar acoustic and thermal performance are probably going to have to spend the extra $30 for the BitFenix Prodigy and suffer with the larger size and slightly wonky stand.
