Cooler Master, a well known manufacturer of computer hardware and accessories, has recently expanded its popular Elite series casings with the CM Elite 371 chassis. This particular model is aimed at those who are looking for a quality, yet affordable case.
The Elite 371 carries three 5.25″ drive bays, a forward-facing 3.5″ drive bay, as well as five internal 3.5″ drive bays. It also has room for long graphics cards, such as the ATI Radeon HD 5970.
Located right on the top of the front panel of the chassis, you will find two USB 2.0 ports, a microphone port, an audio port, as well as the power button.
Cooling in this chassis is not an issue. It features a 120mm rear exhaust fan, as well as options to mount two 120mm fans in the top, either a 120mm or 140mm intake fan in the front, two 120mm or 140mm fans on the right side panel, as well as either an 80mm, 90mm or 120mm fan on the bottom. There are air filters for the top mounted fans, as well as the bottom mounted PSU intake fan, which will aid in preventing dust buildup in the chassis.
The CM Elite 371 is slated to retail in Q1, 2011, and carries a suggested retail price of US$39.
