With a painted interior, simple and sleek exterior, and support for extended, high-end hardware the Elite 120 Advanced from Cooler Master is a perfect fit in either the HTPC or LAN party rig. No overly obnoxious lighting or loud fans mean the Elite 120...

Mini-ITX has existed for years now as form factor, but a more recent phenomenon is the appearance of more versatile and capable motherboards in this size. Those make it possible to assemble your own compact computers, if you can find the right chassis...

Here I sit really torn as to which way to go with the Elite 120 Advanced. Its main competition the BitFenix Prodigy is better equipped, and in my opinion, it took the design to the edge, without making things look gross. On the flip side, that...

At AU$59, it's hard to complain too much about the Elite 120 Advanced's lack of flexibility. A mid-ranged system should be perfectly happy inside it. Still, unless you're space challenged, it's worth springing more cash on BitFenix's Prodigy...

The Cooler Master Elite 120 chassis may look like most other Mini-ITX form-factor cases out there, but it actually bears no surprises since the hard drive bays are located on the front and the full size ODD is placed above that. Cooler Master managed...

Whenever someone mentions a gaming configuration, what comes to mind is a big-tower chassis, such as one of Cooler Master's HAF models, which has a lot of room and numerous fans for the cooling of all those blazing overclocking components. However,...

Though our stress testing evidently proved too much for the Elite 120 Advanced to handle effectively, particularly in terms of CPU cooling, we feel it would be unfair to dismiss it entirely based solely on this as there are a number of things that...

The Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced case is the result of solid design with a real sense of what system builders need. The fact that it's a mere $49.99 is a bonus. A min ITX case doesn't have the expansion capability of a full sized case, but a...

Building with the mini-ITX form factor appears to be a popular avenue many enthusiasts are taking and as a result computer case manufacturers have their work cut out to combine quality, appearance whilst maintaining a condensed design. So how does...

Cooler Master's latest mini-ITX chassis is the cheapest of all the wee PC boxes we've looked at in recent times. There are areas where this definitely shows, but for the most part this is an incredibly good value case for your mini build. There are...

We were extremely impressed with the Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced, as it is small, yet allows you to install a high-end video card up to 13.5” (343 mm) long and a big power supply up to 8.7” (220 mm) deep. This case also offers a very versatile...

At the risk of sounding foolish, more and more it seems that Mini-ITX is very much becoming the new Micro-ATX. Each subsequent hardware generation crams a little more performance and flexibility into the form factor, and Intel's Z77 chipset...

Video Review: The Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced Case is a small form factor case with lots of functionality, despite it's size. It looks great, is lightweight, fits mini-ITX form factor motherboards, standard ATX PSUs, lots of ventilation, 2 fans...

In the end we felt that the Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced is a very suitable case for anyone wanting to build a much smaller gaming rig. With many new motherboards in the ITX range overclocking pretty well and the fact the case can support any GPU...

Konuya yabancı olanlar için kısa bir bilgi girişi yapalım; HTPC (Home Theatre Personal Computer) “Ev Sineması Kişisel Bilgisayarı” anlamına gelen kelimelerin baş harflerinden oluşan bir kısaltmadır. HTPC sistemleri, ev ortamında kullanıcının her türlü...
