As a previous owner of the Cooler Master Elite 120 and a Fractal Design Node 304, I'm really fond of the mini-ITX form factor. In particular, I'm a big fan of cases that allow you to reduce the footprint of a computer while also permitting the use of high-end hardware and good cable management. The Elite 120 was great for this purpose, with the only problem being that its stylish brushed aluminum front limited the amount of air that could be moved by the included 120 mm fan. The new Elite 130 by Cooler Master fixes every problem from the previous iteration while somehow slightly reducing the case's size and adding in a few more features that computer builders will appreciate.

Installation:

Upon opening the case, it's impossible not to notice that a lot of thought went into improving things that people didn't like about the Elite 120. The most noticeable change is the inclusion of a sleek black mesh front. The front has seen a redesign with the 2:1 USB 2.0 to 3.0 ratio inverted; the front of the case now sports two USB 3.0 ports. Also new on the front of the case is a much sturdier and more stylish looking power and reset button combination. For those with precise vision, it's also worth noting that several centimeters have been shaved off of the dimensions of the case, though it's worth noting that the slightly-jutting bracket that allows for a full-size ATX PSU remains.

Inside the case, as in the previous version, Cooler Master has done a good job making it easy to get to all of the cables that will find their way onto your motherboard headers. Also bundled is a zip-lock bag with the standard fare that you'd expect for a computer case: motherboard standoffs, zip-ties, and screws.

Before I get started, I should note I run a pretty high end custom watercooled system inside this Elite 130, so I guess I'll list what I'm packing in this mini monster:
Conventional Parts
CPU - Intel I5 3570k
Motherboard - MSI Z77IA-E53
Graphics Card - MSI Twinfrozer Radeon 7950 (7970 Reference PCB)
Power Supply - Silverstone Strider 550 Watt
Hard Drive - Western Digital Cavalier Green 1TB
SSD - Samsung 840 Pro 128GB
Unconventional Parts
Radiators - 2x Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Single 120mm
Pumps - 2x Swiftech MCP35X
Resevoir - Koolance RP-401X2
CPU Block - Koolance CPU-380I
Graphics Card Block - Heatkiller GPU-X³ 79X0
Fans - 3x Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-45 2150RPM (GT's are best fans out there, no joke. Also the AP-45's are a little tough
to find now but AP-15's are just as great and abundant.)

With that outta the way...

Coming off of the Elite 120, I had very high expectations for this case, and it did not disappoint. Again, coming off the Elite 120, doing a side by side comparison between the 2 cases I found them to be the exact same dimensions even though the product numbers say different. From the numbers, the elite 130 should almost be 1 inch shorter in length which its not. The only difference in size may be the front panel by a couple of millimeters. Speaking of the front panel, it has been changed to a full mesh front which is thee biggest change from the Elite 120, and what a huge improvement it is. My GT's are breathing much more comfortably and are moving monstrous amount of air now thanks to the full mesh front. Also from doing measurements, it looks like that front panels between the 120 and 130 are NOT interchangeable.

What I love about it is that although not tiny by any means, it's small enough and attractive enough to put within eyesight of my TV which I'm using as the computer's monitor, but it also provides two case fans to add to the cpu cooler fan and power supply fan for a total of 4 fans keeping my computer cool and hopefully free of heat fatalities. The two case fans can be powered directly by the power supply, so no problem that there aren't enough fan connectors on my motherboard. Four fans going at once isn't silent, but the sound is pleasant to me and makes me feel like my computer is nice and refrigerated. The case fans pull air in from the front and right side of the case, while the cpu-cooler fan pulls air in from the top of the case. All that incoming air gets exhausted through the power supply out the top back of the case and I can feel a good strength wind coming from the power supply that's not really hot either.

There are a couple of issues though. First, the rubber feet don't grip well enough so that plugging anything into the front of the case or pushing a little too hard on the power button moves the whole computer. I fixed that with some thumb tacks behind the front feet. The other issue is even more annoying and I see it on so many new electronics - laser beam like blue led lights on the front of the case! I don't know about you, but that's distracting even in daylight. I'm using this on my TV as many people would do with a mini ITX computer.

At first I was fixing this by draping a neatly folded piece of toilet paper over the lights, but later realized there's a much better way to fix it. The front panel comes off just like any other computer case I've seen. So, I just took the front panel off, attached yellow stickers over the annoying blue lights, put the panel back on, and Voila! Lovely soft turquoise lights instead of blue lasers. It's wonderful and I can't imagine why the manufacturer didn't do something like that in the first place.
