Cooler Master Elite 130 Mini-ITX Chassis Review
Peter Donnell / 7 years ago
The top panel is easily removed by undoing the three thumb screws around the back. It then slides off and as you can see it is a single piece of metal that has been bent to fit three sides of the frame.
There is quite a lot of space in here, with the motherboard mount in the bottom left, the PSU mounting area in the top left. While on the right we have room for hard drives and a 5.25″ drive.
In the front you’ll find a pre-installed 120mm fan which will bring air into the chassis, given the compact size of the case and the ample ventilation on the external panels, this should be more than enough.
On this side we have a vertical bracket that can be used to mount hard drives, as well as a small fan.
This fan is perfect for providing a little extra airflow to the motherboard, giving your RAM and CPU a breath of fresh air.
The 5.25″ drive bay is perfect for an optical drive, but Cooler Master have also cut a few more hard drive installation cut-outs here should you need them.
