Summary:

The CoolerMaster Elite 120 is a great looking case. With its clean lines, sleek brushed aluminum front bezel, and the Silver CoolerMaster logo on the bezel, it has a very exquisite look. The build quality of this chassis is excellent and lives up to Cooler Master’s reputation for quality. This case may be small in size but it is large in stature when it comes to appearance.

This case has a huge list of amenities such as the ability to house a standard size PSU, an I/O panel that includes USB 3.0/2.0, and a 5.25 optical drive bay. It also has an SSD/HD caddy with tool less retention, a place for an optional 120mm fan to HD cage, and much more. Also, although I suggested going with a modular PSU, even with a standard size PSU, cable management was good and the ability to house larger GPU video cards is a big plus. The Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced has exceeded my expectations with its abundance of features not normally found on cases this size or in this price range. At a price point of only $49.99US, this is an excellent purchase that’s hard to beat, and deserves our PureOC Editors Choice award.
