  • Excerpt: Small form factor PC’s can often be a fun endeavour but they can also be an essential part of a network. Their leading applications include HTPCs and wordprocessors/internet browsers but the limitations only exist with software.

Thermaltake's Element Q Mini-ITX enclosure

25 August 2011
  • Summary: Although the Element Q's GTI styling cue hints at hot-hatch roots, the reality points more toward a diesel-powered grocery getter. The case's extremely limited airflow and cooler clearance conspire to make it a hostile environment for a Core i3-2100, and that's without a discrete graphics card...

[Review] Thermaltake Element Q Mini-ITX Case

21 June 2011
  • Conclusion: The Element Q is certainly a case built for small places. The ITX premise does bring into account of a lot of issues that need solving, mainly where do you install everything. Thermaltake did an excellent job at making the Element Q easy to work with and easy to install everything we needed.

Thermaltake ElementQ VL5000 Mini ITX Case Review

10 December 2010
  • Summary: The ThermalTake Element Q VL52021N2U Mini ITX case has everything you need, and nothing you don’t. It is a pretty neat little device and makes for a decent little gaming machine. You can fit a good amount of hardware for a midrange gaming setup, and it doesn’t take up too much space on your desk (or...

Thermaltake Element-Q VL52021N2U mITX HTPC Case

Benchmark Reviews
18 June 2010
  • Conclusion: Performance on PC cases is rather subjective. The Element Q offers good features and "normal" performance. They let you install 3.5" HDDs and 5.25" optical drives, but considering there's lots of space below the external drives, they could have offered space for a pair of 2.5" drives too, but they...

Thermaltake Element Q ITX Chassis

12 March 2010
  • Summary: The Thermaltake Element Q looks pretty slick out of the box but once you drop your favorite hardware inside, you can ruin the sleek look if you're not careful. While the DVDRW drive doesn't look to bad, the card reader makes it look a bit cheap.
  • Pros: Full-sized 5.25" bay for full-sized drives, Two 3.5" devices/drives supported, Well balanced design, 200W PSU is more than adequate for almost any ITX solution
  • Cons: PCI slot only accepts single-slot GPUs, Card reader would be nice under the front door

5 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Thermaltake Element Q is a small and good looking basic case. The installation of the components is very easy and doesn't take much time. The internal 3.5" drive place should have had some dampening on the bottom side as the bottom of the drive isn't really attached anywhere and it can move a bit...
  • Pros: Small, 5.25" drive bay instead of a place for a slim drive, Easy installation, Low brightness blue power led
  • Cons: PSU fan noise, Poor airflow, The bottom HDD holder design

  • Conclusion: All in all, the ElementQ will cover your basic needs when you need to build an HTPC system. The product retails for just $75 so it might be a good option after all. No matter if you choose an ION or Intel solution, make sure that your set up fits the case and the PSU can handle it first.

  • Summary: Heute ist erneut ein Mini ITX Gehäuse in der Redaktion eingetroffen, diesmal vom Hersteller Thermaltake. Das Gehäuse ist zwar schon etwas länger auf dem Markt erhältlich, doch wollten wir es uns nicht nehmen lassen auch mal ein Mini ITX Gehäuse von TT zu testen.

Thermaltake Element Q

16 October 2010
  • Conclusion: Das Element Q von Thermaltake hinterlässt insgesamt betrachtet ein positives Bild bei uns, jedoch hat es auch mit kleinen Makeln zu kämpfen. Der Aufbau und die Verarbeitung sprechen auf jeden Fall für das kleine Gehäuse, denn trotz der Größe lässt sich noch „ausreichend“ Hardware verbauen und wer...
