    Cooler Master introduces the new Elite 343, mini tower chassis designed for Micro-ATX motherboards. This case comes with the Cooler Master’s excellent quality and design. For the average user, Elite 343 allows for a quiet environment. For anyone with a powerful PC, Elite 343 also fits the bill as adding fans for improved ventilation is easy. The good traits of easy installation, and a cool yet quiet interior environment combined with its outlook makes the Elite 343 a great option for users wanting to assemble compact systems.

    Quiet Environment and High Ventilation
    The Elite 343 allows for building compact systems to perform greatly without having to sacrifice on noise issues. With the pre-installed 120mm fan and mesh design on the front, Elite 343 gives users a quiet and constant cooling environment. For users needing additional ventilation, Elite 343 has provision in the back for installing 80 mm or 90 mm fan to enhance heat absorption.

    Easy Assembly and Customization
    The new Elite 343 has two 5.25” tool-free. The removable HDD cage and retaining holes allow for easy customization. If users want to install long graphic card like AMD HD 5970, they can remove the HDD cage in order to provide plenty of space for those long graphic cards. For people who want to have multiple hard disks, the HDD cage is their best companion. Discover how easy and fun it can be to install and maintain a system.

    Removing HDD cage is not an option, so this case is flawed for hard core gamers

    That looks...very crowded in there. But for a budget build it will work and be good looking. I like it.

    Actually you can remove the HDD cage to fit your 5970. However if you are the type of user who would put a $600 graphics card in a $39.99 case that would be pretty sleeper of you.:laugh:

    My Elite 341 could probably fit it! :D I've got a GTX275 with a few inches to spare---

    Most of their designs are same with newer exteriors. What they should come up with now is a MATX cabinet with a bottom mounted psu. That would be worth buying :rockout:
