Conclusion:

So here we are - the conclusion of this review. I must say ThermalTake has added yet another impressive case to its Element Series lineup. It contends with the competition in performance and is even able to support some server motherboards through support of EATX which is a nice bonus. The case is also still expandable by adding on another top 200mm fan. It also supports a large amount of whatever combinations of 3.5" and 5.25" devices you want to throw at it. It also has many cool features used on it that the Armor Series has, which I like seeing on this case a lot, such as the side panel buttons and keyed lock, which makes this case great at LANs when you want to keep your stuff safe. It's here we move onto the only con that this case has. Having a plethora of features and a larger case doesn't already make for a nice price and I can't say this price doesn't surprise me either. If you want this case, it's going to set you back $169. If you're building a server with dual Xeons, this probably would be a great case for you, but if you really don't need the extra space of a full-tower, a mid-tower will do. But with the size of the latest video cards from ATI and with Nvidia on the horizon, a larger case may provide that piece of mind if you are a gamer that is serious about their hardware.

 

Pros:

  • Easy on/off side panel
  • Keyed side panel
  • Keyboard Lock
  • 2.5" HDD/SSD support
  • Lots of customization allowed with all 5.25" bays
  • Good for water cooling

 

Cons:

  • Price
