I want something like this https://www.google.com/search?q=CoolerMaster+Elite+130+RC-130-KKN1&sxsrf=ACYBGNTCGMunQdzQh1Vo9FEmX4vImtpCeg:1575157771118&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiKnKb7j5PmAhXDnVwKHWqYDIAQ_AUoAXoECAsQAw&biw=1920&bih=937#imgrc=_Z4Kt9iwzFXizM:

I need a case that I could move around easily

Would this case fit these specs in:

PSU: Seasonic M12II-520 EVO 520W 12cm Fan Fully Modular 80+ Bronze SS-520GM2
Ram: RAM PATRIOT PVS432G300C6K VIPER STEEL SERIES 32GB (2X16GB) DDR4 3000MHZ DUAL KIT
Mobo: ASRock Fatal1ty B450 Gaming K4
GPU: VGA XFX AMD RADEON RX580 GTS XXX EDITION 8GB GDDR5 PCI-E RETAIL
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700 3.20GHz 16MB YD2700BBAFBOX
SSD: SSD SANDISK SDSSDH3-250G-G25 ULTRA 3D 250GB SATA 3.0

Also, would there be a problem with cooling compared to a bigger case?

Do you recommend another similar case?

Your [ATX] motherboard is much too large for the CM Elite 130, which only accepts mITX mobos.

What defines move around easily to you? Weight? Size?
I need both smaller size and weight. I'm short like 1.7 and I'm kinda weak. It's a pain carrying around a midi tower but I don't want to sacrifice decent air flow and the specs that I bought.

Corsair Carbide 175R = $40 (13.5lbs) is pretty light.
Fractal Design Focus G = $55 (9.9lbs) - acrylic/plastic side panel window
About the lightest you get is around 9.25lbs, but that's getting pretty flimsy.
I don't like that corsair cases have openings on the upper part of the case, I'm paranoid about something dropping in and ruining the system.

Will this case https://www.coolermaster.com/catalog/cases/mini-tower/masterbox-lite-31/#DarkMirrorFrontPanel fit all my specs in? they say it's large enough even though it is considered mini
 
Nope. Because you have an ATX motherboard, you need a case that accepts ATX motherboards. They'll all have 7 expansion slot brackets on the back. mATX has 4. mITX has 0-2.

What's your case budget? Are you in the USA?

Quality cases tend to have mesh somewhere at the top. That won't allow solid things to get through except odd situations, like I guess a very lucky drop of a tiny needle? They will allow liquids to get through, but you should position your case in a location where it's unlikely that you'll spill liquids on it (and never sitting a liquid on top).
