elite 120 1 Cooler Master demoed Elite 120 mini ITX chassis at CeBIT

With several recently announced monster cases – or Ultra Towers as Cooler Master prefers – such as the Cosmos II, the company was demoing its first high-end mini-ITX chassis at CeBIT last week, the Elite 120. The cube shaped case doesn't really stand out from the crowd in terms of design, in fact it looks a lot like some of Silver Stone's mATX cubes, but Cooler Master has done a pretty decent job on small chassis.

The front of the Elite 120 is made from Aluminium and plastic and Cooler Master has gone for a fairly simple, but appealing design. A single USB 3.0 port as well as two USB 2.0 ports and a pair of audio jacks are found on the right and left sides of the front, with a 5.25-inch drive bay taking up the top part of the case.

Internally you get three 3.5-inch bays of which two can be converted into no less than six 2.5-inch bays for SSDs. There's also a front mounted 120mm fan and the Elite 120 takes a standard ATX PSU. Around the back you'll find a pair of expansion slots which means that you can use dual-width graphics cards with the Elite 120. No word on pricing or availability, but we can see this being a popular choice for SFF gaming rigs when it arrives.
