Thermaltake advertises the Element T as a gaming oriented performance chassis with optimal cooling ability, massive storage capacity and LAN party security. It should be noted that the S and G models each carry a price tag that is two-thirds higher than that of the T, so obviously some concessions are likely to have been made to bring the T to market at such a reduced price. All three models share roughly the same layout, they're all constructed of steel, offer three 5¼" and seven 3½" bays and have the same fan locations available, however each varies slightly in dimensions and weight. The Element T measures roughly 21" x 19" x 8" and weighs in at a very slender 15½ pounds.
None of the three offer a power supply option with the unit, not unusual for cases geared towards gamers and enthusiasts who are more likely to have their own choice of PSU to install. The T is the only one of the trio that comes with an unpainted interior and lacks the internal power supply / drive support bracket and pre-installed intake fans of the other two. Simply comparing the three visually we see that the T model also has a more basic, conservative appearance. Is the Element T merely a stripped-down, no-frills case or can it actually compete with the other models in the Element series? Continue as we aim to find out.
