CM Elite 311

David L., Newegg
26 February 2014
  • Summary: Bought this case for a friends "no frills" build. I ordered it due to bottom mounted power supply and decent included power supply. Build went very well. Would have been nice if they added a wrench for MB posts like they do in more expensive cases, but overall, a nice, clean, sturdy case.
  • Pros: Bottom Mounted Power Supply, Cable Routing Cutouts, Filtered front air vent.
  • Cons: Not really a con, however, it would have been nice to have a cutout above the CPU cutout for P4 power cable routing.

Solid case

James S., Newegg
3 January 2014
  • Summary: I'm very happy with this purchase and will consider this case in my next mid-tower build.... Assuming i only need 420 watts
  • Pros: This case was used for my work computer and the 4th computer i have built. I went with this case ultimately because of price and added power supply. I didn't want to spend the money on account i will not get reimbursed. Overall it is very standard with a low mount power supply making it a bit eas...
  • Cons: The mounting of my hard drive could only go one way. Not a big deal as i was able to turn it around. However i love being able to manage my cables the way i want. In thins case i wasn't really able to do that. Like i said though, all i had to do was switch it up. No problem.

Feels like quality until you hear the PSU

Joshua W., Newegg
15 October 2013
  • Summary: Overall it is a very nice case and maybe my issue with the PSU is just a fluke.
  • Pros: Figured I would feel the value in this case but I was very shocked when I pulled it out of the box. It doesn't feel like it will lean if I sneeze by it, haven't stripped a screw thread, and looks nice with the power and hd lights not giving off to much or too little lighting.
  • Cons: Once I powered it on I found were the value is. The PSU fan is atrociously LOUD! Luckily I had another PSU lying around and swapped it out. I think I'll just use the PSU for testing components so I don't have to listen to it for to long.

Overall good

Tommy R., Newegg
30 August 2013
  • Summary: Overall if you're going to get this case and you plan on gaming, I would recommend getting another fan or two, as this case could use the extra help in cooling the system.
  • Pros: Looks good, decent cable management, cheap, perfect size
  • Cons: Only 1 fan, and the HDD access light doesn't work.

Nice case for the price

Craig B., Newegg
12 June 2013
  • Summary: This isn't a complaint but more an observation. If you install you're own 120mm on the front, there is a removable metal bracket for additional HDDs. Unless you have a mass of HDDs, removing this will greatly improve air flow through the case. Have never had much trouble with Cooler Masters.
  • Pros: Bought this for my girlfriend since she loves orange. Clear side panel and easy access is nice, especially if you're looking to install LED fans. No noise complaints either. Removable side panels allow for easy cable storage.
  • Cons: Needs additional fans but easy to install a few 120mms to add air flow.

Okay looking

Kathleen W., Newegg
8 March 2013
  • Summary: Well I put another $120 into this case doing a case mod project. ( ASUS RoG Themed) After an aluminum film along the sides and hot-rod red trim, top dual 120 mm fans with black honeycomb radiator, extended widow with acrylic, ASUS RoG logo on the window and in the mesh front, and black painted...
  • Pros: Large enough to hold anything I'd need. The trays come out easily enough. (the bottom ones had to be drilled out)
  • Cons: The front audio connectors didn't work but that's fine since I prefer routing my headphones through the back. The inside, back, and bottom aren't painted and are ugly with the offset color. There aren't any top 120/140 mm fan options without a mod.
