Introduction

The right case can make or break a build. It is the utmost outer expression of your PC's personality. From the eggshell steel 'whitebox' to the acrylic torture rack, PC cases vary greatly in form and function. My first real gaming computer was housed in a Thermaltake Armor Jr. I was never a big fan of the hinges and the door was a bit flimsy, but I loved that system and logged thousands of hours on it playing various games. My most recent case was also by Thermaltake, the Mozart TX, which is a huge step up - easily one of the largest PC cases on the market. Today we are getting to test out one of Thermaltake's latest offerings in the gaming case market, the Element G.


The Element series has three offerings; the G, S, and T. The T, which Zahn recently reviewed, is a streamlined, utilitarian entry model. It lacks a lot of the frills, such as multiple stock LED fans and interior paint. The Element S is more sleek, offering a workstation layout with a bit more zing, including a drive-concealing front door as well as interior paint and removable PSU support. Lastly, the Element G combines many of the frills of the S with a few more innovative features, which as you will see ahead, are all in the details.
