PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



…a small three-pin panel that, in turn…



…interfaces with this case panel to provide power to the fan without the user having to plug/unplug the fan every time the panel is removed. If you're in your case very often at all, you'll really appreciate this nice feature.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Thermaltake has also included strips of a foam rubber-like material around the perimeter of the panels to minimize any vibration noise. The red plastic accent pieces will also serve as a vibration buffer in these areas.



Compared to Thermaltake cases that I've seen in the past, the interior of the Element G is different in several respects. They have continued the black finish to the interior, provided some cable management openings and also furnished the non-removable motherboard tray with a large opening to facilitate CPU cooler swaps without having to remove the board. However, the most obvious is the PSU bracket that not only serves to secure and isolate the power supply…




…but can serve as a mount for up to two 2.5” HDDs (or SSD's.) The seven-bay drive cage is also removable and has some other nice features that we'll explore during installation. The PSU area has a filtered intake that extends forward a good distance from the rear of the case, but doesn't appear to be easily removed for cleaning. This is not a huge issue due to the support brackets for the power supply that will prevent a downward facing intake fan from getting starved for air.
