Introduction

With Mini-ITX gaming systems on the rise lately, it’s no wonder why more and more manufacturers are getting into the Mini-ITX market. Cooler Master is a name that I’m sure everyone reading this is familiar with. They have been around for a LONG time and make TONS of different PC-related goods including cases, CPU coolers, laptop coolers, keyboards, mice, headsets, and the list goes on. A year or two ago, Cooler Master came out with the Elite 120 Advanced Mini-ITX case that was small on size but big on room and features. Cooler Master has just released their latest Mini-ITX in the series, the Elite 130!

The Elite 130 takes the base setup from the Elite 120 Advanced and removes the internal HDD bays in favor of 120mm water cooling support. It also adds in a unique drive mounting system to make up for it. They were kind enough to send us one to check out so let’s get it on the bench for testing!

 

 

A little about the Elite 130 from Cooler Master:

“One of the most compact, yet fully featured chassis for high performance M-ITX computing. Included is a large mesh front panel that offers reserved styling while allowing extreme airflow. It’s designed to fit in the most minute available desk space while supporting high performance hardware. Elite 130 supports: the largest VGAs from NVIDIA or AMD, 5 x HDDs and/or SSDs, a full-sized power supply, and even a thick 120mm DIY or AIO watercooling radiator.” – Cooler Master

Let’s take a look at the features and specs for the Elite 130 now.
