Inexpensive yet poorly machined

  • Summary: The case is feather light, was inexpensive given the purchase price at the time of sale, but it is very poorly machined. The doors do not come on and off cleanly. The screw holes for the motherboard risers and PCI card slot bays round out far too easily because the metal is so soft. It's so bad that I had to purchase bolts for the motherboard risers in order to secure them in place, which is something I've never had to do before.

  • Summary: I love this thing you won't find a better deal than this anywhere for a nice case! would have been nice to include more fans instead of just one but for this price, I can't complain. However, the front usb ports stopped working after about a week of owning this thing, makes it very difficult to use wireless keyboards and mouse with it running way in the back.

Good for the money

  • Summary: I was on a budget building my first PC and decided to go with this. I didn't exactly do my research and just found a cheap tower and bought it. When It arrived my first impressions were oh this is a nice case for how much I spent. Don't get me wrong the case is great I just wish I had done my research because when it came to cable management It really lacks. You really have to get creative since there is not really much space in there.

  • Summary: I think you should spend more if you want your comp to feel a little more solid, while installing I thought it was a little too cheap as a build. I wish I had used my old case but this does give you more fan installations in different places which is critical and the power supply is at the bottom which is kind of nice...

Very Nice

  • Summary: I actually purchase this case because of the price. So far I like everything about it except the metals protecting the expansion slots at the back. Once taken out you cannot replace them. I was hoping it will be a bit heavier. For a mid-tower it has sufficient room for all the stuff to fit in there. I really appreciate the window because I can check my hardware as my computer boots up without taking off the cover.

COOLER MASTER Elite 430 RC-430-KWN1 Black Steel / Plastic Computer Case

  • Excerpt: Its fantastic case for the price. The fan slots were poorly placed particularly the double on prime. In order to match two fans up there i would have to give up my ram which is pointless.

COOLER MASTER Elite 430 RC-430-KWN1 Black Steel / Plastic Computer Case

  • Excerpt: Attractive, lots of fan choices, bottom mounted power provide. Really thin metal utilized. I constructed my nephew a new personal computer utilizing this case. I chose it over the Cooler Master Centurion in order to save a few dollars. That was a mistake. Top quality of construction was really inferior to the Centurion (I have a single myself). As soon as I removed it from the bad I knew I had created a error. I constructed the program and shipped it with Fed Ex to CA.

COOLER MASTER Elite 430 RC-430-KWN1 Black Steel / Plastic Computer Case

Jovianne, pricebat.ca
26 July 2011
  • Excerpt: This case rocks for a mid-size tower. Very first, it has room for 6 case fans. Second, it has a bunch of hdd and cd/dvd drive bays with "toolless" fasteners. Third, the energy supply mounting is at the bottom of the case. Fourth, it has enough length and width to support HD 6870s and a Cooler Master V8 without getting to mod something to make space.
