After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
The enthusiast on a budget does not have to sacrifice quality and options when they choice this case. The modder out there is also in for a treat. With such a low priced case with so many options just waiting to be explored becomes an easy choice. With a price that makes a project easier to work with knowing that the startup investment is easy on the pocket.
The only issue that came to mind with the Elite 430 is the ability to use a couple large graphics cards with a few hard drives installed. This for the most part this will never happen in a low budget setup. Even for using higher end hardware there is ways around this using some converters in the 5.25" area to house the hard drives.
Options for watercooling
Great overall Airflow
Ability to support the largest of graphic cards
Taking most of the Highend cases options
Strong overall design for the price
All black interior/exterior paint finish
Tights squeeze for multiple large graphic cards while using more than 3 hard drives.
