Thermaltake Element S

Introduction

We recently looked at the Thermaltake Spedo, a full tower gaming case which had a strong design base but was poorly executed in a few areas. Thermaltake have been around for a number of years now so we were a little disappointed to see a product from them that lacked the refined finish we expect.

Today we are looking at another chassis from them, the Thermaltake Element S. This case is targeted at ‘professionals’ and hopefully will rate a little better than the Spedo.

The front of the box is smartly designed with minimal information and an image of the case emerging from the darkness in front of a white glow with a red fan LED. The reverse side is a completely different story, with a huge collection of pictures and diagrams illustrating the features of the chassis.


As well as the box and foam padding, the case comes protected in a blue cloth and is packaged with a manual along with all the necessary screws and parts.
