Looks good... While I'm disappointed that it doesn't contain any cabling features, it does look good and it contains most of the features that the higher-priced cases usually have. This'd be the case for me if I was looking for a new case, though the lack of cable-management features is severely disappointing. Even though I was able to manage with a wired PSU; there just doesn't seem to be any excuse for this at all, any...

I have an Elite 430 already and it's a fine little case. It is almost identical to this new Elite 431 case.
It has amazing airflow for such a little case, and if you populate all of the places available for fans, it can cool just about anything. If you use a modular PSU with it, there is plenty of room to hide wires.
It cost me $39.00 at Newegg.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I'd say this looks subpar for a Coolermaster product which usually has alot more features too their cases... till I saw the $60 price tag.
This is really a great case for a build on a budget that doesn't want to sacrifice quality to get an affordable case

I've put together a few AMD Fusion APU systems lately. They use low power and do not generate a whole lot of heat either.
This would be perfect for one of them. (although my Elite 430 has a i7-870, water cooled with a Corsair H50 in it)
Very nice little case. Though I have to agree with Taylor how hard/expensive would it have been for them to include a couple of gromets in the motherboard tray for cable management.
For $60 dollars though you can't complain too much about the thing.
can't beat that price neal
