Following the Elite 361 chassis for horizontal and vertical use, Cooler Master has designed the Elite 120 Advanced. These cases were first showcased during CeBIT and followed the trend of 2012 that systems need to be more compact. The chassis has room for a mini-ITX motherboard, a single 5.25-inch device and three 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch storage devices.
The Elite 120 Advanced is sized 240 x 210 x 400 millimetres, offers room to a full-size ATX power supply and high-end graphics cards, such as the Radeon HD 7990 or GeForce GTX 690. Apart from the audio jacks, the aluminium front panel features 2x USB 2.0 and a USB 3.0 connector. Cooler Master has added two fans to the chassis, a 120 mm fan in the back and an 80 mm fan in the side panel. Optionally, an additional 120 mm fan can be placed to improve the airflow.
Cooler Master's Elite 120 Advanced has a recommended pricetag of €45 (£36) and should be available late July.
