If you are referring to the Elite 130 then you will not have a problem installing a H80i cooler, though i am somewhat confused by the mention of using a larger fan than the "factory installed 80mm", as the Elite 110, 120 and 130 all have 120mm?Originally Posted by Scotty99
Will the h80i fit in here in push/pull? Also can you mount a larger fan in the spot where the factory installed 80mm fan is placed? (120 or 140).
Thanks for sharing that, i have the H80 and had no trouble installing it with fans mounted on both sides, i believe it as not so hard if you install it from the right instead of the left side, if you get what i mean.Originally Posted by Awussy
In the 130 case, I have the H80i with 2 120mm Cougar fans in push/pull. The tab that sticks out from the bottom of the drive bay for mounting a SSD will get in the way if you try to install the radiator with the fan already attached, so I suggest you attach the inside fan after the radiator is mounted to the front fan.
Below is a picture showing the tab and how the fan was mounted just fine.
I think it is a nice case, very small an compact. I would have been tempted myself if i didn't already own a PSU and GPU that really would not have fitted in it, hence my purchase of the Elite 130. Still not Elte 110 owner on here though.Originally Posted by rizmo
Oh, and for those of you guys interested. A while back I was looking to see if the CM Elite 110 was on sale. It's now on Newegg for $49.99
I think this would serve nicely as a steam box case. Oh, and it loos like you can in fact mount a 120mm radiator in front similar to the CM 130. What do you guys think?
The air vent itself is not offset, and sits perfectly central on the case id. However, inside the case the PSU is off set slightly to one side, to accommodate for the graphics card, so if you have the PSU as an intake is is not perfectly aligned with the vent, but is pretty close. If you want anymore information just ask.Originally Posted by xxvolwarexx
Hey everyone! New on this whole forum. I'm planning on buying the CM Elite 130 and I have a few questions. First of which, is the top air vent offset? It doesn't look equally balanced when you do a top down or similar view on it (just want to know before I order it). THANKS!
In theory yes, but the detail that worries me more is that the lightning version occupies a little more than two slots. Will may not allow me to close the case?Originally Posted by majin662
going by both MSI's official specs and Coolermaster's it should be able to support that card. Unless I'm mistaken.
