Summary: From the outside to the inside the Thermaltake Element S Case is really something. While it does have a plastic top and front it's not your typical shinny cheap looking plastic. The side panels and inside is steel which adds weight but means it's really sturdy.
Summary: What I liked most about the Thermaltake Element S is the overall design. The removable hard drive cage has plenty of room for 3.5" drives, and the removable PSU cover can handle two more 2.5" SSD drives.
Pros: Nice black finish throughout the case, Plenty of room for hard drives (seven 3.5" and two 2.5"), Anti-vibration rubber edging on the side panels, Up to six fans can be installed (three included), Fans are fairly quiet
Cons: Lots of plastic, Steel covers need to be removed before installation, Non-removable motherboard tray, No tool-less options for 5.25" drives or expansion cards, No available external 3.5" bay or adapter, 60mm fans on rear panel (if installed) block expansion card screws
Summary: You won't find elements like HOT ² or Cool² on the Periodic Table, but you will find them at your local computer emporium in a new Element lineup of cases from Thermaltake. These case have so much to offer and the best part of all is they will not break your budget when you go to buy one of them.
Conclusion: The Thermaltake ElementS is a sleek looking chassis that works for an office or gaming environment. The smart design and massive airflow make it a good choice for today’s hotter running systems.
Summary: An attractive in its simplicity, manageable, and overall efficient case. You get what you see in advertisement it is “Created for Pros”. You will definitely appreciate this case if you work on your computer as a job.
