PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



The I/O panel is full featured with audio ports, and eSATA port and the reset button flanked by two USB ports across the top. Below, HDD activity and power LEDs surround the power button.



With the door open, what appear to be nine bays with meshed covers yield only three useable 5.25 bays and no external 3.5 bay for a floppy. The door has a shallow recess that will allow the use of bay devices with protruding knobs or other appurtenances.



The bottom of the Element S is a bit more refined than the lower cost Thermaltake cases we've seen lately. There's a filter for the PSU intake, but as we'll see a bit later, the inside of the chassis holds a few surprises. The feet are also a bit taller to keep the intake from being blocked by carpet or other obstructions. Near the front, there is a handle mechanism to help remove the front panel.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Removing the three thumbscrews allows the side panel to come off, and here we can see another interesting feature. As you can see in the photo, a strip of rubber-like material runs around the perimeter of the panel to minimize any vibration noise.
