ThermalTake Element G ReviewCompxpert - August 18, 2009

What more can really be said about the Element G? This case has a lot going for it. It features space for a lot of hard drives and moves about as much air as anything else on the market. What gives it an edge over the competition is the amount of space dedicated to hard drives. I have yet to see another mid tower that can hold this many. There are also many optional accessories that you can put in the Element G, such as two optional 120mm fans in front and two 60mm fans in the real for VGA cooling. It also has great looking LED fans and the option to change between five color modes, which I found to be quite nifty. I also found the case easy to wire-manage. With all the different holes you can use to hide wires behind the motherboard tray, it shouldn't be to hard for even a wire management novice to manage wires in this case. Not only would this be a great case because of the size to take to a LAN party, but it also looks like a nice piece to show off as well. The only really big con I can find, I suppose, is that there is no support, as of yet, for an optional windowed side panel from ThermalTake, which means if you want one, you need to make it up yourself. The Element G will also set you back around $139.99, which isn't too cheap, but is a pretty competitive price compared to other mid towers in its class.
