Thermaltake Element Q Case Review

hardwarebistro.com
16 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Overall we are quite satisfied with Thermaltake Element Q in term of design, performance although there are some minor weaknesses but it is still considered pretty good for such newly launched product; we strongly believe Thermaltake will continue working on it to improve the upcoming revision.
  • Pros: + Small & light weight, + Support std hardware except the board, + Simple installation, + Pre-bundled 220W APFC PSU, + Front I/O ports, + Ideal for Intel Atom platform
  • Cons: - Compatibility issue can't be avoided, - Noisy PSU fan, - Airflow can be further improved

Ideal for a HTPC

Vincent Marsters "Vince", Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: This is an ideal little case for a HTPC. It is quiet - the one I got had a virtually silent PSU fan - and looks good enough to sit below your TV. For my usage I use a Sapphire PURE White E350 (IPC-E350M1W) motherboard with a Crucial SSD and 6GB of RAM with OpenElec media centre software (based on XBMC and very easy to install). The motherboard was easy to install once I had taken the PSU out and there is a reasonable distance betweeen the CPU and PSU with this board.

Great tiny case

Simon Smith, Amazon
23 July 2013
  • Summary: Great tiny case that im using for a htpc small in size, but enough space to install a couple of drives and a full size dvb card Only down side for this case is the psu fan is noisy, but its replaceable so if it annoys me to much i'll get a new one in a few months.

  • Summary: This a good case, but bit loud. I am purchased it to build a HTPC, but its loudness fills the room, and makes hard to sleep. After I've changed the power supply the loudness disappeared, and now functioning properly.

Lovely little case, with a couple of points to note...

damikeh "damikeh", Amazon

  • Summary: Love the size, and the way it comes apart etc, the only downsides are: 1) the reliability of the proprietary SFF PSU 2) Wasted space under the "FDD" tray - there could easily be another 2.5/2.5 HDD mount there.

Good box with some problems

Dr David Bellamy, Amazon
6 August 2012
  • Summary: The PSU will not take the standard CPU fan for a Core i3 on top of a Gigabyte SKT-1155 H61N-USB. You need to buy a low profile fan, I would imagine, in every circumstance. The HDD will only fit in if you have also memory with NO heatsink. A bit of a squash in parts, but when running does so very quietly.
