Cooler Master has announced the availability of its new Mini-ITX chassis, the Elite 120 Advanced in India. This chassis is the first in the Indian market to offer a small, but feature-rich case that can accommodate standard form factor hardware in a small foot print.
Crane Chen, Country Manager Cooler Master, India said, “Globally, the Mini-ITX form factor is catching up pretty fast. Motherboard vendors such as Asus, Gigabyte, Zotac, Intel, etc. have launched new Mini-ITX motherboards in India too. However, at present, the Indian market doesn’t offer any specialized solution to make the best use of this form factor. The Elite 120 Advance from Cooler Master offers an excellent base to build your media centre rig. It’s designed specifically to suit the needs and demands of a small form factor PC.”
