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...

  • 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...

  • 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. Otherwise, tip top for an itx build

one of the best compact computer cases you can find

Mr. S. Basso "smnbss", Amazon
9 November 2010
  • Summary: I needed a compact case but large enough to contain 3 2.5" hard disks, a AT5IONT-I motherboard and an U3S6 extension card. This case is perfect for that, small and the PSU fan is very quiet

Good iTX case for a small media centre

The Quibbler, Amazon
9 November 2010
  • Summary: Well designed and constructed apart from the front flap for USB ports. Gotta feeling that won't last long if I'm not careful. Quiet so far. Using a Zotac board, HP DVD and a Samsung HD.

Great tiny case

Simon Smith, Amazon
9 November 2010
  • 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.

Neat looking and quite well done

Dzmitry, Amazon
9 November 2010
  • Summary: This case is a well designed one - I have fitted it with mini ITX motherboard + CPU with it's cooler, a 3.5' HDD, DVD-ROM and a 2.5' SSD (last one using an adapter). On top of that there is space for a PCMCI card. Wires can be packed under two front bays.
