Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by Cooler Master.

The Cooler Master Elite 110 Mini-ITX Computer Case is a compact, cube style case that can handle some full sized desktop components, while maintaining a relatively small footprint. With the ability to handle a ATX sized power supply, and desktop graphic cards up to 210mm (8.26 inches), the Elite 110 is aimed at more than just the niche market. Sporting the ability to hold 4 SSDs or 3 HDDs, storage options are not a problem.

In the past I normally stayed away from small or “tight” cases, mainly because they lacked sufficient space, at least for my tastes. But with the ease and portability of the Mini-ITX platform, cases like the Elite 110 offer little sacrifice in the way of full size performance and features.

    This is why I like SilverStone Strider modular power supplies. For $24.95 you can buy the “PP-05″ short cable kit, which is perfect for building inside mATX or mini-ITX cases.

      Yes, SilverStone does offer short cables! You just have to make sure about dimensions of the PSU as the Cooler Master Elite 110 supports a max of 180mm depth and the 1500W (although I can’t fathom someone needing a PSU this big in this case) is 220mm in depth.
