Cooler Master Elite 330
Benchmark Reviews has been on the web for over a year now. In that time I've had the pleasure of reviewing some very nice higher end computer items, including mid and full tower cases. While I love the high end market I realize for every high end part sold, there are probably 100's of mid to lower end parts sold. So who's buying these parts? Everyone is that's who. So where do they get their pre purchase information from? Hopefully here at Benchmark Reviews. Cooler Master recognizes there is an audience at this price point and so should we. Today Benchmark Reviews will look at the Cooler Master Elite 330 RC-330-KKN1-GP Chassis. A mid tower computer case that appears to be big on features but small on price.
Cooler Master is a well known computer chassis manufacturer. Many of their gaming cases are world renowned but they do cater to more than the gaming scene. They offer a complete line of mid towers that would definitely fit the part of corporate computing with classy conservative style on the outside with performance features on the inside. A wolf in sheep's clothing if you will.
In this review we'll look at both the outward appearance and the inside features a little closer. Maybe this really is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Lets continue and see if a case at this price point really is worthy of consideration for your next computer or maybe your first computer build.
