Cooler Master's Elite 430 targets Antec Three Hundred

Cooler Master is aiming right at the heart of the budget case market with its latest Elite 430. The black case is designed to take on the very popular Antec Three Hundred, and should certainly give it a run for its money in terms of build quality and use of space...

Why not 140 fans in the roof, the two 120 de-centered look really awful. And so does the front plate. If I Could get the one from the Antec 300 with the two fans with dors. That would be THE rocking mini tower. (If anyone mods it that way, was MY idea.) Still loving my Antec 300

The two fan mounts on the roof should be closer - it could allow for a 2X120rad.

Many PC Gamers.

Cheap mobo, cheap case, cheap PSU + tons of fans and graphics = typical scenario for the uninformed at LAN parties I've seen.

Can't compete with the Three Hundred with those pesky quick locks on the drive bays. Seems they aren't too impressed with the locks even themselves, seeing they still used screws to mount the hard drive

The gaming case markets are so damn over crowded a case really needs to pack something extra and do everything right to stand from the crowd. By the looks of it, this is just another generic chassis.

I think airflow is becoming more of an issue, so there are more and more holes/vents/meshes, which mean less sleekness. Although the designers tastes don't seem to help either :P

Too cramped, just like the Antec 300.

I have 3 HDDs, a 4870, a TX750 and there is no room to manoeuvre at all.

If it would be different there would be a problem with mainboards that have PWM heatsinks at the top of the board like for example the Gigabyte UD5 Intel boards or the Asus P6X58D Premium.

Having put my computer in a case with sideways facing hard drive caddies, it is so useful. Makes adding the drives so much easier, along with the cable routing.

It can't surely add *that* much to the cost?

I think the case has to be wider for sideways HDD cages. I wish the 300 had them

Antec 300 is a terrible case and it is cheap for a reason, this looks slightly less cramped though.
