The Cooler Master Elite 342 is a low cost mini tower computer case. This casing is built to house the Micro-ATX motherboard. The 120mm front fan provides lots of cooling to the computer system encased by the Elite 342. The front mesh design of the Elite 342 provides lots of ventilation, and so aids keeping this unit constantly cool. The side ventilation holes also help the cooling performance of the Elite 342. The front I/O panel provides easy access to all the connectivity options of this computer case (such as the two USB 2.0 ports). With the Cooler Master Elite 342, adding 80mm or 90mm rear fans for additional cooling is an optional add-on.
