Decent size for entry-level PC

Henry B., Newegg
18 April 2012
  • Summary: I bought mine CM Elite 360 about year ago without the 350watt power supply for $10 dollars cheaper which is better option considering what I read the default PSU that come with the case is not very good which is obvious it is always better buy a separate power supply.
  • Pros: Compact and lightweight computer case. Support standard ATX motherboard and standard PSU. Tool-free drive bays.
  • Cons: Memory card reader didn't quite fit with the external 3.5" Drive Bays with the tool-free drive bracket, which I had to put in a piece of paper folding into the size of the memory card reader to made it fit. only 1 internal 3.5 drive bay meaning you can only install one hard drive. Blue LED on the...

get 8 pin adapter

Waters H., Newegg
1 April 2012
  • Summary: I hope this PSU does not go bad on my customers new computer.
  • Pros: I owned the prior version of this case, and mostly liked it. My first impression of this one, is I like it more, and it has better design elements and airflow options. Small but holds big
  • Cons: cheapo PSU and I would have got a different one, and did not read reviews, I assumed a newer version meant newer psu, but,, nope. 4pin 12v, no 8 pin... How many ATX boards only use 4 pins? Yea, at this wattage, people shouldnt be overclocking or going crazy with graphics, but just to ensure compa...

Measure before you buy

Ronnie B., Newegg
7 December 2011
  • Summary: Purchased the parts for a new build from Newegg. Gigabyte motherboard, Gigabyte GTS 450, Antec modular power supply. Really didn't do any background check which I should have. Would suggest this case for a mATX board.
  • Pros: Price, cooling, nice concept. rolled edges, size.
  • Cons: Should not be marketed as a case for ATX boards.

Solid design, cheap steel

William B., Newegg
27 April 2011
  • Summary: At this price, the case should be more robust. Cooler Master gave you a movable logo and a cool beveled and louvered plastic front panel, but the side panel is rather too thin for being so profusely perforated.
  • Pros: The Elite 360 will take a full ATX board and PSU in a case the size of a microATX tower. The PSU ventilation scheme is very effective; the PSU draws fresh air from outside the case and exhausts directly back out through the front/bottom. Really excellent ventilation in the case; 120/92/80mm fan s...
  • Cons: Tool-less drive system works ok, but the molded plastic 'adapter' rails are very cheaply made. Flimsy construction. Misaligned thumb screw hole on the side panel. 5.25" drive bays are set up for a 'desktop' orientation, and slot loading DVD burners are tough to come by. It'd be nice to have the t...

User Review

Jeffrey A., Newegg
21 April 2011
  • Pros: Cool case, good airflow design.
  • Cons: Be extremely careful before purchasing - make sure you measure the dimensions of your power supply and graphics card. EVGA GTX 570 and Corsair Enthusiast 650W does not fit. Also be careful if you have a graphic card with a power plug at the end. Giving 3 eggs due to the lack of internal dimension...

Adequate

Samuel J., Newegg
22 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought this to build up a system for running OS virtualization on the cheap. For that purpose, this case has served well. If you're building a production machine that you'll use heavily, I'd suggest getting something larger and better-built.
  • Pros: Cheap. Plenty of ventilation openings and two ventilation ports for 120mm fans.
  • Cons: Flimsy. Internal components are very crowded, but I should have anticipated that as it's described as a mini tower.

Tiny Case

Anonymous, Newegg
18 January 2011
  • Summary: The case is in need of a little more steel. It is a tad on the 'cheap' side of things. I can't really expect too much out of budget case, but it is a Cooler Master, so there is a level of expectation regardless.
  • Pros: It is a Cooler Master case.
  • Cons: The hard drive placement had me baffled to some degree. I actually had to break out the instructions to see that the front panel needed to be removed for the install. Once I followed the program things went together as they should have. This case is tiny. Tough to get your hands in there. And the...

Good case, cheap, bad PS

Dan G., Newegg
16 October 2010
  • Summary: Core 2Duo E8400 downclocked to 2Ghz, Radeon 4650 video, laptop hard drive, cheap DVD drive, Thermaltake 400W PS in this case. Makes for a nice, quiet HTPC that does what it is supposed to do.
  • Pros: nice case for HTPC. Just enough space to use older gear to make a nice, low power system. looks good. toolless rails for drives.
  • Cons: the PS is garbage. save the $10 and get it without the PS. It works OK, but I can't plug it into the motherboard. All other power supplies work fine, so it is not the board. It takes way, way, WAY too much force to actually plug it into anything. it plugged into my tester, with significant force,...

Good case lousy power supply

Micah V., Newegg
9 August 2010
  • Summary: I wanted a cheap no-nonsense case that was easy to assemble. With the addition of a power supply I got what I needed. Overall its decent just wish they'd knock 5 bucks or so off so NewEgg can do this as a combo deal with a decent Power supply
  • Pros: The case design is great. I would almost say its worth almost the entire price I paid for it. Power supply, drives, and mobo fit very well and was incredibly easy to assemble. No rough edges or cutting surfaces that I could find. Airflow feels good.
  • Cons: The power supply was DOA. I wanted a green box anyway so I went out and got a better one. Has a bright neon blue light on front. I bought this as HTPC so in a my room its kind of bright with the shades drawn. Also the cooler master logo on the front adjusts but it seems to spin around and around....
