Need to build a small fully featured desktop system? Maybe you want to get the most bang for your buck from a DIY Steam Machine. Well the latest case announced by Cooler Master may be just the thing you’re looking for. The Elite 110 promises to be the most compact fully featured MiniITX case available.
In its small footprint, Cooler Master has managed to make sure most of your bases are covered with the Elite 110. The front features a fully breathable mesh with room for a 120mm fan and all-in-one water cooling. The intelligent use of internal space in the Elite 110 continues with the ability to accommodate mid or high end video cards up to 210mm in length. Should you need a beefy power supply to provide volts to everything, there is also an extended bracket to allow a PSU up to 180mm long. This makes the case versatile enough for a swap from ATX to mini-ITX with just a change of motherboard for most mid-range gaming systems.
Pricing and availability was not released with the press release below. However, Futurelooks did interview them at CES 2014 and found out that they are targeting a $49.99 US price point and it should be out by the end of the quarter. Our coverage video is coming up shortly so make sure you come back.
