Le'ssee... (note to self)
Last deal on black/red was 2/22, rebate was CLM-5646
This rebate is CLM-5657 [Check]
Black/Orange case rebate is CLM-5661, different rebate [Check]
In for one.
I'm glad I ordered before I realized I could also get another black/red case...
Thanks OP (wluk)!
Thanks & reps: m715, wkchan (Tell him "Elite 310 Wiki info") Can't figure out how to do a rep-able link for a wiki post (although I did successfully give a rep to SD user "Wikipost" )
@wkchan: If you'll post in the thread in addition to the wiki, I can rep you. tnx
I screwed up and transposed model numbers - I have an Elite 431, and this deal is for an Elite 310 - my original post that I am correcting was for an Elite 430 vs. 361. Thank you K6-2 and Wasabi for the correction
At least for me, TD charges slightly over $9 shipping - so none of this applies if you have FS with TD - for $10 FS this is a great deal. But for $11 more than if you pay TD shipping you can get the Cooler Master Elite 430 from Newegg - $29.99 AR/FS/after coupon (must subscribe to eblasts) through 3/7. The cases are roughly the same size. Cooling looks to be much better in the Elite 430. The 430 has a bottom PSU (more stable - less hot air in case). It also takes 4 x 120mm and 1 x 120/140mm versus this case that states on the TD page that it has one 120mm fan port - it actually has one with the included rear mounted fan and an 80/90/120mm mount on the case side, at least from what I can see on the pictures. Both cases come with a single 120mm fan mounted. If heat is not going to be a problem, i.e. just one or two 120mm case fans as you are not putting in high power components, the Elite 310 is a decent deal at $19 if you pay shipping. I love to mount undervolted fans because while they move less air, you can make them whisper quiet. It just depends on how you do your builds.

I looked at the Cooler Master 361 with the February sale. For just over $10 more you can get the Cooler Master Elite 430 from Newegg - $29.99 AR/FS/after coupon (must subscribe to eblasts) through 3/7. For that $10 ...
For that $20, don't you mean? - if we're comparing to this $9.99 AR, FS w/IC deal here.
Not so sure I'm following you, I feel like I came in on the middle of a discussion...
If you meant that in addition to this Elite 310 deal there was a good sale on the Elite 361 earlier, but instead of those (types of cases) the Elite 430 is better than both of them and for only $20 AR more you really should buy it instead - I guess I get you.
But you made me work for it.
BTW, if the Elite 430 accepts the Hyper 212+, this Elite 310 probably will also take it - both cases are 7.5" height and 7.5" is typically the absolute minimum to clear a Hyper 212.
