Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus Mid Tower Case Review

Hi Tech Legion
29 February 2012
  • Summary: The performance of the Cooler Master Elite 431 PLUS Mid Tower Case is good and is based on having just the one front 120mm intake fan installed. I was very impressed with the Cooler Master Elite 431 PLUS, despite it being in the budget category of cases. The 431 Elite PLUS is not only built well, but it brings with it some amenities not normally found at this level, such as on board USB 3.0, 3.5 External Docking station with built in dust cover, and a windowed side door.
  • Pros: Light weight, Price, Two external 5.25 ODD bays, Two external 3.5 drive bay, One external X docking station, On board USB 3.0, Toolless retention, Washable dust filters, Fits Up to 12.4" GPU with the HD cage, Large Motherboard Tray Cut Out, Fits Micro ATX and ATX  Motherboards, Windowed side panel
  • Cons: Only one 120mm fan included, No real cable management behind MB tray

[Review] Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus

7 February 2012
  • Conclusion: The Elite 431 sports some great features. The USB 3.0, along with the massive side widow for showing off your hardware, were good additions. The Elite 431 was able to hold our ASUS 480 GPU, which was another good feature, even if it does block a spot of a 3.5″ bay area. The tool free 5.25″ drive bays and the partially tool free installation of the 3.5″ drive areas is always a nice touch.

Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus Computer Case

APH Networks
3 February 2012
  • Conclusion: The installation process for the Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus is a relatively straightforward and easy procedure. I started off by installing my Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD5-B3 motherboard before moving on to the Cooler Master GX 450W power supply unit. One quick thing to note here is that you will not be able to install a bottom intake fan into this case if you have a long power supply, such as the Seasonic Platinum 1000W .

Cooler Master Elite 431 review

15 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Budget cases usually come with an expectation of poor build quality and thin metal sides. We're pleased to say that the Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus ditches all of those expectations with its excellent build quality. It feels tough and much more expensive than its price would suggest. The 'Plus' suffix comes from the extras you get compared with the original Elite 431 case, including a USB3 port on the front panel next to the two USB ports, headphone and microphone jacks...

Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus

26 August 2012
  • Pros: Probleem met de front fan is keurig opgelost door Azerty. Had te maken met een weerstand die er tussen gezet was icm een BIOS setting (had toch bij de fysieke POST door Azerty aan het licht moeten komen, maar goed slip of the pen)., Samengevat gewoon een TOP-kast. Mooi formaat, goed opgezet. Aanrader !
  • Cons: Geen.

酷媽再添優質生力軍CoolreMaster Elite 431 Plus機殼

19 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Coolre Master所推出的機殼廣受消費者歡迎,推出的每一款機殼也都相當有特色,在最近也推出一款Elite 431系列,屬於中型直立式機殼,這個系列除了有Elite 431之外,還分別推出Elite 431 Basic與Elite 431 Plus兩種樣式, 差別在於設計與功能些許不同,不過這次小編挑選出功能最齊全的Elite 431 Plus來加以介紹,提供讀者們選購時的參考! 就如前言所述,Elite 431系列共推出三種樣式,三種版本的主要的結構設計都是一樣的,只有在細節的部分略為不同。小編這次主要介紹的款式是全新設計的Elite 431 Plus,它的設計結合了Elite 431與Elite 431 Basic的特色,從外觀的設計來看,大面積的透明側板明顯與Elite 431有不同之處,透明側板可以讓玩家清楚看到內部硬體的運作,對於安裝高階硬體或是改裝的玩家來說,還可以邊玩電腦邊欣賞自豪的硬體配備,不過Elite 431 Plus側板如果有設計可安裝風扇的話那就更加完美囉!...
