When you search for a suitable case for your build, it's not all about the performance. Likewise, it's not all about the looks of the case either. That is where ThermalTake comes in with its Element series cases. Today we are reviewing the Element G. The Element G seems to encompass everything that a good case should be; good looks and great performance, all in one tight package. Is this case really this good? Perhaps you should read on and find out.
Looking at the box of the Element G, you will find the top emblazoned with "Element G". More importantly, however, is what the front of the box conveys. The front shows off the elegant look of the case, along with the words "Create for Pros". What these words seem to convey to me is that this is a professionally-designed case. As such, I would expect the performance to be nothing short of professional as well. Upon further investigation of the box, one may find that it features three color-changing LED fans. Both the front and top fans are 200mm in size and the side panel fan is 230mm in size. With fans this big, they must move quite a lot of air. Additionally, the case supports two 120mm fans in the front for intake and two 60mm rear exhaust fans for cooling your video cards.
Upon opening the box you'll notice not only is the case between two pieces of Styrofoam, but the case itself is wrapped inside what appears to be a blue ThermalTake bag. The bag seems to provide the best possible protection for the case than any other application I've ever seen, plus, as an added bonus, it would be of great when lugging your computer around at LAN parties, so it does not become scratched.
Well so far we have what looks to be a great case, so let's take a closer look at it, shall we?
