Elite 120 Advanced? (Its so tiny :3)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
How's the cooling? Anandtech and bit-tech berated this thing so much for airflow. I have a Phenom II x4 955 so that might be a big deal.
Currently have the Bitfenix Prodigy (Kinda big), but if the Elite 120 doesn't cook my rig, I'd be happy to trade out right now.

Be smart about cable management and it'll cool your rig just fine.

Not sure if you are overclocking or not but just get a good low profile cooler. Your rig stats are old so I don't know what your current mobo is so I can't help with coolers right now.

I fit an H60 in mine inside the HDD cage (yes, screwed into where the middle 120 goes, but backwards), and foam taped the SSD onto the power supply.

It fits fine, but to be honest it could use a few mm longer thread length than the screws corsair provided to do a better quality install.



The main benefit of this case (imo) is lan party in a bag. Everything besides my monitor itself fits in a soccer bag. (case, keyboard, cables, headphones, mouse, pad).

I'll take a picture of it when it's full next. Probably this weekend.

Edit: As far as cooling wise... I'm not trying to hit 5 on this thing. With all stock fans I'm at 10c above ambient idle. I have my PSU facing up so it's not getting airflow from that either. So not too bad. I'll do a gaming test and report back.

Much smaller. I think it is slightly larger than a SG08 so around 15-18L. Prodigy is 24L without handles and much larger when you include the handles.

This is true. It is similar in width and depth, but about 15cm shorter.

Here is the comparison to the sugo. The case also seems to be available at frys now. I picked another up today.

Temps I got on OCCT were about +35C / amb for a 2500k & H60. So since it's warm (around 30c), I was at 65c. This is the worst it's going to get with an H60, as I only used the stock fans and did no ducting whatsoever.

You could remove the HDD bay for a CLC similar to what I did for my custom loop rad:
