Lowest Prices

Conclusion

For the sub $40 price tag, the Elite 310 is great for the gamer on a budget. The thickness of the sheet metal dialed in at about 0.71mm according to my caliper, which is definitely acceptable for the price. I have seen plenty of cases marked at the same price that were obviously lower quality and used thinner metal construction. The paint is durable, the case is lightweight, but rigid, it's attractive, and comes with a pre-installed Plexiglas window. Replaceable PCI slots and a little more room at the top would have been nice, but it’s hard to argue that those things should be included for the price. Although all the interior edges were rolled, I did cut myself picking it up by the rear hole that the power supply shows through. This is how I’ve handled all my cases, and this is the first one that cut me by carrying it that way. The one edge Cooler Master did not roll for safety is the one that ended up showing me to be more careful. That aside, the case is a worthy purchase, especially for its small dip into the wallet.

 

Pros:

  • Affordable price
  • Attractive look
  • Available with or without side window

 

Cons:

  • Expansion slot covers do not reattach
  • Not enough room at the top for large heatsinks
  • No assistance for wire management
