The Elite 430 Black was designed all-black interior coating with its main purpose in mind as such there's plenty space for large graphics cards, no matter your brand preference. The Elite 430 Black also features plenty of cooling options and a well ventilated front mesh design to keep even the hottest system nice and cool.

I Also like the locking mechanisms employed for the CD/ HDD's just simple and affective plus thumb screws securing the case sides is a bonus (hate having to find a screwdriver for this ). The one extra added bonus is the power supply is bottom mount (although the 12v supply for motherboard had to be routed differently to reach as stated in another review), PSU mounting preference for me was to have the fan facing down to suck in cool air from under the machine and this keeps the PSU cool.
The base system comes with a blue led intake fan at front and a plain rear sickle flow extract at rear top of case only.
For me I personally wanted more airflow options and this case caters for enthusiasts so read on if you are interested if not skip to next paragraph..
I managed to fit 2x 120mm red led fans at the top of case as "extraction" to take heat out of the top of case as the cpu cooler fan (Artic pro freezer 13) is directly under these fans, this assists the cpu fan expelling heat through top of case. I reversed the rear fan to make it take air in over the CPU heat sink again assisting with the airflow over the CPU Cooler. I also Added a Green thunderbird led fan to side of case to take air into the area where the GPU sits to assist cooling of GPU.Read more ›
The Cooler Master Elite 430 Black mid-sized tower case was 1 I picked for my build.
There is plenty of spaces for fans aside from those included. A lower front 120 mm intake fan. Both intakes and the power supply intake area have plastic filters on them, to help minimize dust inside the case.
There is a 120 mm sized space on the clear windowed side of the case. a 120 mm slot on the rear,
There is two 120mm spaces up top which can also hold a 2x 120 mm radiator if you go the water cooling.
It as holes in the rear for routing tubing from an external radiator.
The delivery was fast and packed well.
