Best bang/buck full tower case on the market, particularly at this sale price (though I prefer the traditional black color over this green).

Short video review showing the color:

And the original, more in-depth review of the case itself (not focusing on color):

I purchased the Elite 130 back in May and it is a great value for the money spent ... assuming that you get the rebate. I filed for the rebate just after receiving delivery ... but have not received it. I also purchased an EVGA PS and vid card at the same time and received them weeks ago.

Great case but recommend avoiding the deal if you are adverse to the risk of not receiving the rebate.

Did you check your rebate status? Pretty sure most of my newegg rebates take about 3 months...

Debating picking up that Phanteks case for a new 6600k build. Pretty solid price.

The EVGA rebates that I have filed are averaging about 2 months to fulfill. Good to know that (perhaps) Cooler Master has not forgotten about my $15 rebate from May.

I'd say the NZXT 210 is one of the best cases on the market. At this price, it's a steal and really a great start for most any build. Enough room to fit boards, decent cable routing, you can slap fans anywhere until you feel like it'll achieve lift-off. Minimalist looks.

I don't know about that fractal case really - looks good. Same with the Phanteks but I do like that closed off design for the PSU and cable routing looks great - but only an in person build would confirm.

Stay away from the CM Elite 130 - honestly stay away from that or the 120 as they are about the same. If you want a SFF case that fits a longer card, look elsewhere. The Evga Hadron is what I have and love (not for everyone). There's the inwin 901 and others like it. Get the Elite 110 - it has USB 3, can fit a lot of SSD and/or HDD, and can even fit water cooling too if you want an easier time OCing. Yes, you can't fit as long of a GPU in it, but with some small 970s made and I see short 1060s, you should be easily covered in the graphics department. The other major plus I have with the 110 is not only it's actually small (not just the top few inches cut off an mATX type case) is the fact you can put normal 80mm side fans on it. The 130 and 120 have a slim side fan and it stinks and when I was looking at all 3, I couldn't easily find another fan to use if it broke or I wanted more air or less noise.

those are fun little cases to play with. I built a pretty cheap htpc using cooler Master. Only drawback is the filter cleaning and removal is so distressingly frustrating.

That CM Elite is an ugly little spud, but I'm sure that it has a great personality.

Got the Cooler Master Elite 130 last year for HTPC use and like it a lot. I'm not trying to fit a giant video card in it though. My rebate didn't have any problems. $27.99AR is a good deal; it's typically $34.99 and I don't think I've seen it go below $29.99.

You are correct. NewEgg rebates average 12 weeks (3 months), and are by far the longest time to receive. But, if you follow the instructions exactly, you will receive every single rebate that you submit to them, without an issue. This has been my experience with dozens of rebates that I've submitted to NewEgg, and I've never had any issues receiving them.

The CM 130 is a great little gaming HTPC case at this price. Easy to modify for better cooling if you have basic skills with a Dremel rotary tool and some creativity. I stuck both an AIO liquid cooled CPU and an EVGA GTX 980Ti Hybrid GPU inside and still had room for a 120mm side exhaust.

Others have done some really impressive custom mods as well.
