2 July 2010
  • Summary: Conclusion The Cooler Master Elite 430 does have quite a number of features, but most of these features don’t make me impressed. The case does have a nice aesthetic appeal with a complete black color and blue LED fan; it just doesn’t seem worth the price; around $60 online.
