Cooler Master Reveals Elite 130 Mini-ITX Enclosure

Cooler Master has announced a new Mini-ITX enclosure: the Elite 130. This chassis is built to cater to folks who want to be able to mount enthusiast-class hardware, yet want a sleek and elegant appearing enclosure.

Within the unit you can house a Mini-ITX motherboard, a single 5.25" optical drive, up to five HDDs or SSDs, full-size ATX power supplies, and the longest of graphics cards, including the GTX Titan and AMD's Radeon HD 7990.

Cooling is taken care of by a side-mounted fan, as well as the PSU's exhaust and an optional intake fan. The intake fan can be replaced by a 120 mm radiator, allowing for liquid CPU cooling.

Connectivity is handled by two USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port, and a pair of HD audio ports.

The unit is already available through select retailers for pre-order, and it carries a street price of about $50.

    Am I the only one who doesn't care for mesh much? I think it kinda looks tacky.

    Yes, yes you are the only one that cares.

    That is a sexy case. IT literally has everything you could ask for, functionally speaking. All that AND it's only $50. That's pretty damn reasonable. I'm sure I'll buy one eventually.

    Does it have dust filters? It's not mentioned on the Cooler Master web site.

    Time for the internal optical drive to go away on these small cases for other components or airflow.

    I love my optical drive, and use it regularly. But I can live with something external, if it meant better airflow for the main machine.

    Seems like a very good alternative to Silverstone SG07, with the freedom to choose the PSU and a lower price tag.
