Summary

Cooler Master did a good job on this tiny form factor chassis. While there isn’t much space to work with, there is plenty of options to be able to install some powerful hardware. Aesthetically speaking, we enjoyed the black texture coating on the outer and interior of the case. The mesh front panel was a great feature to allow for cooler air to enter the chassis. The blue illuminated front logo gives it that extra touch of appeal.

When it came to the interior, we found that the open design concept worked great, and the ability to install an AIO unit at the front will help those looking to install high power CPUs and motherboards. This will help keep heat down. The amount of hard drives that can be mounted is pretty impressive considering its size. While we don’t expect users to fill this chassis with drives, it’s great to have those options.

The only draw-back on the chassis that we found was the left side mounting tray. This did obstruct some of the air flow for the graphics card, and if you are running an SFF gaming GPU, this case could cause some heat issues; however, the option to add the 2x 80mm fans would probably give that little extra push of air to keep things cool. We think that Cooler Master should have included the 2x 80mm fans instead of making the consumers buy it as a option. That would be the only suggestion we can give Cooler Master.

Overall we feel that Cooler Master did a great job on the Elite 110. At the price of $49.99 on newegg.com at the time of review we are happy to honor the Cooler Master Elite 110 with a PureOverclock Good Hardware Award.
