There was a time when hulking computer towers were all the rage, and for some, they still are. By and large, however, the general shift in computing has been towards smaller, space saving form factors. Hoping to capitalize on that trend is Cooler Master, which recently announced its Elite 120 Advanced chassis pitched as "a modern solution for the space conscious" builder.
The Elite 120 Advanced is about the third of the size of a standard case, measuring 9.4 inches by 8.2 inches by 15.8 inches. It weighs 7.3 pounds before stuffing any hardware inside.
Built around the mini ITX form factor, the Elite 120 Advanced accommodates small motherboards with big ideals. It supports up to four 2.5-inch drives (converted from two 3.5-inch bays), up to three 3.5-inch drives, and a single 5.25-inch drive. There are two expansion slots available and ample cooling for its size, including a 120mm front fan, 80mm side fan, and an optional 120mm HDD fan. The front I/O panel consists of a USB 3.0 port, USB 2.0 port, and mic/audio inputs.
Cooler Master says you can cram a standard ATX power supply into the compact case, as well as graphics cards up to 13.5 inches long and CPU coolers up to 2.5 inches high. The case itself is constructed of steel with a brushed aluminum front panel.
You should be able to find the case now for around $50.
