Summary: Fits everything i need inside well, Even with my GTX770 card, there's plenty of room for cables and such. I will be upgrading to a larger motherboard and we'll see how everything looks after that.
Summary: It's a great case that checks off everything on my "must have" list. That said. the issues are "how did this get past QC?!" bad. I'm deducting two stars - the logos are mounted upside down, the front panel itself had the mic and headphone jacks swapped, and nearly every screw hole on the motherboard mounting tray was at a nasty angle. The motherboard tray itself was badly warped.
Summary: I bought this case for building a computer, and it worked out perfectly. I was afraid that my motherboard wasn't going to fit, but the opposite thing happened, and I had plenty of space for everything. The external SATA mount was great, because I bought a laptop hard drive, but with this, I was able to mount this perfectly. The fan is great, and I love the LEDs inside. Overall, I highly recommend this case, and it is at a great price, too.
Summary: Pros: Everything fits way more room than I thought I would get. Has plenty of room for large video cards. Cons: Power button broke 31 days after purchase. Have to fiddle with it quite a bit to get it to work. -2 stars because I have to completely move everything to a new case now and cost me more money. Front panel feels like it is about to break whenever I need to remove it. - 1/2 star Back panel is ever so slightly off center with my mobo.
Summary: The Cooler Master Elite 431 is a nice case with a lot of space and a nice sleek design. My only real complaints are that the side panel window scratches way too easy and when i got my case it had no fan like it said it would :(. But it has a lot of room for expansion and even support for the bigger graphics cards. It also has room for 6 fans, which are more than enough to make cooling possible. Overall it is a great product and I will give it four stars.
Summary: It's a great low budget case, it's really spacious and customizable, has a lot of fan spaces and includes a front fan, the only thing im giving this a 4/5 it's because you have to break the lids on the back (PCI/PCIe spaces) and if you get the wrong lid, there is no way to put it again, same with front lids for optical drive and other stuff. All else it's exactly what i expected and more.
Summary: I like the front side SATA port. Makes disk cloning (I use Clonezilla) easy. I don't like the power supply on the bottom. The whole system seems to run hot. With some of the cases (not this one), power cables from a bottom power supply won't reach their plugs on the mother board. Also with this case, the power connection on the SATA front side port is so big you can (and I did) put the power supply plug in with the voltages reversed.
Summary: Will rate as 5 stars as it works as advertised. Actually, it is much nicer looking than I expected for the price. It is a sturdy case and all my components fit nicely in it. I do not have a large video card installed, but the specs indicate what size you can use so that is a plus.
