Excerpt: The people over at Thermaltake have unleashed the Element G on the masses. Does the gigantic gaming, glittering, gradational glaciated goodness grab the general gamer? Glean the gratuitous guidance from our inspection of this gob of goodness!
Excerpt: In the computer chassis industry, Thermaltake is well-renowned for their professional engineering and high-performance products. When designing the Element G case, Thermaltake engineers opted for a classic, yet dramatic look with the option to switch on a variety of case lighting effects. Read on to see if the Thermaltake Element G is the right case for gamers and enthusiasts!
Summary: The Thermaltake Element G Case has an excellent overall look and build quality. There are lots of fans to provide fantastic air circulation, plug-n-play side fan, plenty of drive bays and so much more. If you're in the market for a mid-tower this ranks amongst the best.

Excerpt: Like the Element S the interior of the Element G is a pleasure to work in, (with the exception of the non-replaceable expansion slot covers, one of my pet peeves,) and the cable management features are really outstanding.
Summary: The Thermaltake Element G doesn't have a removable motherboard tray and on this case I find that a bit of a pain. The motherboard and heatsink combination that I used required that the heatsink be installed after the motherboard was installed, and there isn't much room at the top of the case to work with a large heatsink. The Optical Disk Drives and other 5.25" devices require screws and are not tool-less.
Pros: Aggressive design for gamers, Sleek enough for a professional look, Support for seven 3.5" HDDs, Support for two 2.5" HDDs, Filters on front and bottom intakes, Good cable management, Side panel has great power connector, Hole in mobo tray for CPU back plate installation, I'd like to thank Thermaltake for sending over the Element G for us to review.

Cons: Side fan has no filter, Crowded at top for HSF installation, No PCI slot covers, I'd like to thank Thermaltake for sending over the Element G for us to review. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to post them in the forum at the "Comments" link below.
