Elite 431 Plus

Disclaimer: Displayed parts and accessories may not be included in the actual product package.


The new Elite 431 Plus builds upon Cooler Master expertise and delivers high-end features in the affordable market space. Cooler Master believes that just because something is affordable, it doesn’t have to lack features or be a “budget” product.

The Elite 431 Plus features a classic black Cooler Master design with clean, yet attractive lines. It has been built to last and uses high quality materials, unlike many “budget” products that tend to use cheaper materials that don’t last. It’s also been designed to keep the components inside the case cool and not only does it have space for plenty of additional cooling fans, but it can also be fitted with large CPU coolers, such as the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus.


  • Front 120mm Blue LED fan for better airflow

  • Supports long graphics cards including HD Radeon 6990

      "If I were the consumer buying this case, then I am laughing all the way to the bank with the money I saved, and will be adding that money to my build with some really nice, quiet fans up top and at the back, and some vented replacement covers on the expansion slots......So, if you're looking for a budget build, and want to start with something you can definitely build on, then I would highly recommend the Cooler Master 431 Elite PLUS."

      "The Elite 431 sports some great features. The USB 3.0, along with the massive side widow for showing off your hardware, were good additions. The Elite 431 was able to hold our ASUS 480 GPU, which was another good feature, even if it does block a spot of a 3.5? bay area. The tool free 5.25? drive bays and the partially tool free installation of the 3.5? drive areas is always a nice touch. The overall aesthetics of the Elite 431 were impressive as well, with the stylish front panel and blue LED. The X-Dock is another really nice feature of the Elite 431, allowing for easy transfers of files from other hard drives. Having the dust filters placed over the intake area, and even the top two exhaust areas, was a nice touch to help keep this case as clean as possible."

      "The Elite 431 Plus certainly raises the bar on budget cases with some great features. Clean styling and room for high end components should put the Elite 431 Plus on your shopping list if you are searching for a mid tower case."
