Great Case!

Heather T., Newegg
1 August 2012
  • Summary: The fan noise was fixed by cutting out the original grates for all the fans sucking in air and replacing them with the round grates that you find on power supplies.
  • Pros: Awesome case for a mid-power gaming rig. The case can accommodate 4, 120mm fans and graphics cards up to 12" long. Pretty sturdy once it is all together. SO MUCH AIRFLOW!
  • Cons: No rubber feet on the bottom. The fan grills are too close to the fans and this causes my fans to make a whining noise at most speeds. (I'm using Cooler Master Sickle Blade fans) The tooless aspect of the case is weird and it doesn't allow for my fan controller to be securely attached to the case...

Nice small case

Paul C., Newegg
21 June 2012
  • Summary: I like Cooler Master cases and its the first time for this one. I will use this one again if I need a small case. Whatever cut me was so sharp I did not fell the cuts, just saw the blood!
  • Pros: Just the right size for a micro atx board, no wasted space. Quiet 120mm case fan
  • Cons: 3.5" bays are not screwless. The holes did not line up with device and while reaching into case to align device with bay my wrist and fingers came out with cuts

decent m-atx case

Ryan D., Newegg
18 March 2012
  • Summary: cm dropped the ball with this one... with room for any current gpu and oversize cpu coolers this case really is the only option for a m-atx gaming machine... (hyper 212 evo 1-2mm to spare) If any case manufacturer reads this review here are the changes to make a perfect m-atx case, start with CM...
  • Pros: m-atx with room for a cm hyper 212 evo cpu cooler room for huge gpu 2x120mm fan mounts 1-front, 1-rear, side panel mounts for 2 more if needed (1 if you use a large cpu cooler) bottom mount for hard drive is handy no obnoxious led fans or windows or flashy paint job, just plain unobtrusive low ke...
  • Cons: labeled but not included front panel e-sata and firewire. should have done the hanging hd mount sideways, would make hd install so much easier, same goes for the bottom hd mount. the power led is beyond obnoxious bright, add a resistor or nail polish etc to dim it, really bad in a bedroom if you ...

Good Basic Case

Sean M., Newegg
5 March 2012
  • Summary: The case is great but requires a lot of attention and planning when you build, you will take some extra time to get a system assembled even if you are a pro like me.
  • Pros: This case has served me well in a single card gaming machine. Stays cool and is easy to clean and is simple to assemble. Metal feels flimsy but the case holds up well.
  • Cons: There is no room to really work once you get a large video card in. To build with this case you have to be methodical when deciding to get parts in, hint start with your drives.

Nice no-nonsense case

Anthony A., Newegg
16 October 2011
  • Summary: - There is considerable airflow noise through the front dust filter, but keep in mind that my fan is connected directly to the PSU. With that fan disconnected the whole system is incredibly quiet, but quite a bit warmer.
  • Pros: - Sturdy steel side panels and main structure. I haven't experienced the side panel vibration/humming people are talking about. - Included case fan is very quiet when connected to mobo chassis fan header. - Thumb screws for both side panels, and plenty of included screws for mounting drives, expa...
  • Cons: - Four different, but very similar looking, kinds of screws are intermixed in one bag, around 40-50 total. - The front dust filter, which was a big selling point to me, is washable, but it is not removable. I mean, the filter media is held captive in the front panel. To get to it, you have to tak...

Cooler Master Elite 341

Roger B., Newegg
7 October 2011
  • Summary: Overall, I think this is a great case, because after daily use, and being moved around frequently, nothing has happened to it. In fact, it's almost new out of the box, over a year later.
  • Pros: This case is made from solid, durable materials. The sides of the case are steel, and aren't a bit flimsy. The front panel is plastic, but that's to be expected for a <$50 case. It's still very durable, you almost can't tell that it's plastic. Another great thing about it is the mesh on the botto...
  • Cons: I only have a couple of problems with the case. One is that the front panel has two USB ports, and two audio ports (headphone/mic), but has 'covered' cutouts for 1394, and eSata, just cutouts, not the actual ports. It also only has 2 3.5" bay mounts. I wish it had more, but I knew that when I bou...

One of the best mATX cases around... but with 1 flaw.

Alejandro C., Newegg
8 September 2011
  • Summary: Perhaps its my fault for getting the fans I did. I have used them in so many things tho... and I have never had this kind of issue before. These fans are amazingly great, but for this case, pick something else. The blue color suits the case tho...
  • Pros: This is a very awesome sized case. it will fit any sized mATX Motherboard with no problem. I built a computer for a relative with this case using a m4a78lt-m motherboard and an athlon ii x2 250 processor. Probably the best basic use computer I have ever used. It is very fast and loads internet pa...
  • Cons: Ok. 1 major issue. Be careful if you buy any 120mm fans with this case... Especially with a high CFM(mine is 69 CFM at max RPM). I purchased 2 sickleflow blue fans for this case. AMAZING airflow and temperatures! However, they make a LOUD HUMMING SOUND. At first I thought it was the fans but it w...

Pretty Awesome

Anonymous, Newegg
5 June 2011
  • Summary: I mounted a side window in mine, as well as mounted every fan on rubber grommets. This can be a very nice LAN rig enclosure with some TLC. System specs: -E8500 @4.1GHz (Xigmatek HDT S1283 w/bolt-thru) -DFI Lanparty P45 JR -4GB Corsair Dominator -XFX 8800GTX (kickin' it old school) -Silverstone...
  • Pros: -Very simple, non-ridiculous styling -4x 120mm mounting holes, which is a lot of cooling for a case this size -Front fan filter -Ability to fit large graphics cards (11"+) Overall, a great basic case for a good price.
  • Cons: -Flimsy side panels...be easy on them. -Limited hard drive mounting options, but that same limitation is what allows for honkin' GPUs.
