Compact Yet Powerful- Elite 130
The Elite 130 is an ultra compact case with support for full size high-end desktop components. Other than conventional Mini-ITX cases, the Elite 130 supports more affordable, efficient and easily available full size ATX PSU's. It can accommodate even the largest high-end VGAs, a 5.25" optical drive and up to 3 HDDs and 4 SSDs. You can even install a 120mm radiator in the front for extreme cooling. Thanks to a smart airflow system featuring 2 fans and the full mesh front panel it manages to still keep the system extremely cool.
