Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced Mini-ITX Case ReviewWed, Aug 08, 2012 - 9:00 AM
Unboxing the Cooler Master 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.
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 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.
