First Look


The Thermaltake Element G takes advantage of a bottom-mounted PSU configuration which as we can see inside, will allow for the greatest amount of airflow in and out of the case. The front of the case houses one 200mm Touchcolor intake fan. This is one of the four stock fans in the case, three of which are 'Touchcolor' (which we will get to in a bit). The front of the case also allows for the tool-less installation of two additional 120mm fans to aid in both intake and HDD cooling.




We find a vent and dust-filter located in the bottom of the case. The top of the case houses a second 200mm Touchcolor fan for exhaust which teams up with a rear-facing 140mm fan to expel all the warmed air from the internal components.


The side panels of the Element G are held on by three thumbscrews each. This may seem a bit archaic in the gaming-case market, but they are used for good reason. The 3-point screw fasteners combined with the red plastic trim function to keep the case panels ridged and silent when attached. Both case sides also have a rubber seal installed that contacts the case frame at all points, deadening any vibrations from fans/hard drives/water pumps and effectively silencing the case. The right side panel features our final fan, a 240mm Touchcolor intake. This fan has the most innovative feature I have ever seen on a door fan: a 3-point plug-and-play connector that really sweetens the deal on a case already conducive to great cable management.
