Cooler Master reveals Elite 343 and Elite 371 budget cases

Posted on Thursday, January 20 2011 @ 22:12:44 CET by

Cooler Master has introduced two new budget cases. First up is the Elite 343, this steel case is designed for Micro-ATX motherboards. It measures 180mm x 352mm x 440mm and weighs just 4kg. There's room for two 5.25" devices, one external 3.5" bay, five HDD bays (removable cage) and four expansion slots. Cooling is provided by a single 120mm front fan and there's support for an optional 80/92mm exhaust fan.

The front features a I/O panel with two USB 2.0 ports, audio ports, FireWire (optional) and eSATA (optional).

  • Front mesh design provides superior ventilation to maintain constant cooling
  • Front I/O panel provides easy access for users
  • Side panel security lock hole for higher security
  • Side ventilation holes for better cooling performance
  • Front 120 mm fan provides the best cooling solution
  • Removable HDD cage
  • CPU Cooler height: 148 mm
  • VGA Card length: 250 mm ( with HDD cage ) / 363 mm ( HDD cage removed)

  • The Cooler Master Elite 371 on the other hand supports both Micro-ATX and regular ATX motherboards. This steel model measures 190mm x 424mm x 481mm and weighs 4.7kg. It features three 5.25" bays, one exposed 3.5" bay, five HDD bays and a I/O panel with two USB 2.0 ports and audio ports. Cooling is provided by only one 120mm rear fan but there's support for two optional 120mm top fans, a 120/140mm front fan, two 120/140mm side fans and one 80/92/120mm bottom fan. The bottom and top fan locations are protected by dust filters.
    The Elite 371 might be an affordable case, but that doesn’t mean it’s limited as it has plenty of room for your system to grow in as you upgrade. There are three 5.25-inch drive bays, as well as one forward facing 3.5-inch drive bay and five internal 3.5-inch drive bays for hard disk drives. There’s even room for a pair of high-end ATI Radeon HD 5970 graphics cards from AMD.

    Pricing is unknown but both cases should be relatively cheap.
