Cooler Master Elite 430 Black


Introduction

Introduction

There's no need for us to introduce Cooler Master. A major manufacturer of cooling peripherals, power supply units and chassis, Cooler Master regularly churns out new updates and product refreshes like an well-oiled conveyor belt. This time, we take a look at one of its newer mid-tower chassis, the Cooler Master Elite 430 Black. Like the other Elite series chassis, the 430 Black is targeted at the entry level segment, with prices starting from around S$79. Now that's affordable.

 

With so many Elite series chassis already out there, one may wonder at Cooler Master's plans for this new model. Well, besides the all-black design that extends even into the interior, Cooler Master claims that "there’s plenty space for large graphics cards" within. Let's find out if this goal has been achieved.
