Element G Overview
If you compare the Element G to the Element S there are quite a few noticeable changes. The Element G definitely has a better design that will catch someone’s eye when they are walking past. It is a mid tower case, which is perfect for gaming as well. You do not want to be lugging around a full tower case to LAN parties. Thermaltake did keep the all black design, which is the only color that the Element G is available in.
Starting with the front of the case, it has an all mesh design. At the bottom there is a small Thermaltake logo. Behind the mesh front is a very large 200mm intake fan.
Towards the top of the case there are 3 5.25-inch bays. On the top of the case you have the power and reset buttons. Also you have 4 USB ports and front HD audio connections. Notice there are no eSATA ports up front, Thermaltake says this is because most people when using an eSATA device use the PCI bracket instead of ports on the front of the case. Finally there is a large knob that controls the speed of the fans as well as color of the fans.
On the top of the case there is another large 200mm fan exhaust fan! The side of the case is pretty plain except for a huge 230mm side panel fan. It is covered with mesh giving it a pretty cool look. Also the side panel is accented in red, giving it some style.
Looking at the back of the case we can see that Thermaltake has designed the case to have the PSU sit at the bottom. Many companies are designing their cases like this and I really like it. As far as cooling goes you have a 140mm exhaust fan and room for 2 60mm fans if you need some extra cooling. Also you will notice thumbscrews on the side panel, this is a must for any case these days.
