Mini-ITX gaming systems are becoming the hot thing these days. More and more people are building high-end gaming rigs in this form factor. Reasons? Well let’s see. For starters they’re smaller and generally lighter than your typical mid- or full-tower counterpart and thus easier to transport to LAN parties and the like. Mini-ITX systems have exploded in the modding world as of late as well. Let’s take a look at Cooler Master’s latest offering to the Mini-ITX scene – the Elite 120 Advanced.

The Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced comes packaged in a fairly plain brown cardboard box with black ink used for the images and text. This side shows a picture of the case and gives a few basic specifications. You’ll also notice that they offer the Elite 120 Advanced with a PSU as well – as denoted by the checkboxes on the bottom. The opposite side of the box lists the specifications of the enclosed case. Each end of the box is identical and lists a few specifications in several different languages.
The case itself is wrapped in a plastic bag then enclosed in a pair of Styrofoam end caps to prevent damage during transit. This is pretty much the norm for 99% of cases these days.
The Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced comes with a black and white owner’s manual and a small bag filled with accessories that is located inside the case. The accessories bag contains a pair of tool-free HDD rails (the other 4 rails come pre-installed in the case with the 2 included 3.5” to 2.5” drive adapters), a bunch of small zip-ties, chassis speaker, 4 push-pins for installing a second 120mm fan on the inside of the HDD cage (makes trying to squeeze in a large Phillips head screwdriver unnecessary), 32 small screws for securing the 5.25” device, 4 brass motherboard standoffs with Cooler Master’s standoff installation tool and finally 8 coarse-thread screws – 4 for installing the motherboard and the other 4 for installing the PSU.
Once the case is shed of its packing we finally get to take a look at it. The case is clean and simply styled. It looks nice without being too over the top or flashy. Let’s take a closer look at it now.
The front panel of the Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced has a brushed aluminum finish, giving it a nice look. The case comes with two USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port, and the traditional audio jacks. The USB 3.0 port uses an internal connector.
The right side of the front panel houses the power and reset buttons, power and HDD LED’s and a single USB 3.0 port with an internal connector.
The left side of the front panel contains a headphone and microphone jack as well as a pair of USB 2.0 ports.
The rear of the case is simple as well. There’s the protruding PSU mount, a single rubber grommet and a dual-slot expansion card opening to hold your monster GPU.
One of the nicest features of the CM Elite 120 Advanced case is its ability to house a standard ATX power supply. Just the fact that you can fit a PSU this big into a Mini-ITX case is impressive in itself. You have this sleek power supply adapter that comes with the case to thank for that.
The right side looks the same as the left. You’ll notice the small fan behind this side though, but more on that in a bit.
The top of the case features the same mesh cut into the panel itself with the addition of a removable mesh filter for the PSU air intake.
The bottom of the case has 4 hard plastic feet and lots of punched-through tabs for your cable management needs.
With the removal of 3 thumbscrews on the back panel the entire top cover slides back then lifts off in one piece, a-la mid-90’s horizontal desktops. Inside you’ll notice the accessories bag twist-tied against the HDD rack and all the internal cables twist-tied together on the floor of the case.
Looking over at the right hand side you’ll notice the 2 2.5” drive adapters nestled into the HDD cage and the 80x15mm fan and its associated bracket. This fan will provide intake airflow to cool your motherboard, CPU and chipset. This fan and its bracket can also be removed with a few screws if you so desire.
The front panel simply pops off with a tug from the bottom. Underneath you’ll find a 120mm 7-blade Cooler Master fan for the front air intake.
We most realized that CM wanted the case to hold a decent amount of drives. All drives are located up front and can accommodate one optical device, three 3.5” drive or four 2.5” drive all depending on your personal configuration.
With the system completely installed you’ll immediately see that it’s TIGHT. Tight, but it works. Everything fits as it should.
Looking from the opposite side you’ll notice that the video card takes up most of the space on the left side. Our recommendation is to install the GPU last as you’ll likely need to remove it (like I did) several times to make all your connections. There’s still plenty of room as Cooler Master states you can fit a Radeon HD 7990 or a GTX690 (two of the biggest GPU’s available) into this case without hassle. This can make for a potent little gaming setup.
The rear of the case shows how well everything fits.
You’ll notice here that the 65mm CPU cooler height limitation will severely limit your choice of coolers. Although working with a Mini-ITX board your choice of coolers is typically already limited due to RAM/PCI-E slot clearance issues. However, if you plan on using something this size for a HTPC or file server, you can use the on-board video (IGP) and get away with a single 4GB stick of RAM.
In the end we felt that the Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced is a very suitable case for anyone wanting to build a much smaller gaming rig. With many new motherboards in the ITX range overclocking pretty well and the fact the case can support any GPU currently out, you will not go without the performance you want and require in a gaming rig.
The cooling aspects of the case are very decent. With the smaller 80mm helping to draw air over the motherboard and other components and the large 120mm allowing air to blow over the HDDs and once again across the motherboard all is well. For extra cooling another 120mm can be added to the build if needed.
The case will support CPU cooler about another 1 ½ taller than the stock Intel unit for instance the new Cooler Master GeminII M4. But we were not able to use with and keep the GTX 580 in the build because the PCIe slot of most ITX board is just too close to the CPU socket.
We used a PSU that was 7” long and still had enough room between it and the optical drive to make the power and data cable connections as well as store some extra cables. But all the extra cables that may come with a PSU will make cable management a small issue. We will find out. One thing to remember is also the longer the PSU the more of a cluster all the cabling will make and our build was an example of that.
I know one question that will be bought you and I will answer it now. Can a AIO water-cooling kit fit in this case? Well, we took some measures of a cooler we had and it measured just 5 ¾ inches of the rad. And the space underneath the optical drive totaled 5 ¼ inches. So, there is your answer.
We would definitely recommend this case to the masses as the case is solidly built and has a very clean look.
