Thermaltake Element G Gaming Case Review

Jump To:

Introduction and Unboxing

Today I am going to take a look at the recently released ThermalTake Element G computer case.  Here is what ThermalTake said about their case:

         The Element G case is geared towards enthusiast gamers who like to set an individual lighting ambiance fitting their mood and game play. The Element G is therefore equipped with unique 3 Touchcolor fans that can operate in 6 different modes. For the Element G series the designers had five key “exaggerated” elements in mind: Gaming, Glitz, Gradation, Gigantic, and Glaciation. The Element G is ideal for those looking for a highly exclusive chassis, that is ready for various gaming environments

This is the front of the box; it shows signs of handling from UPS but nothing major. As you can see it gives us a glimpse of the top and front of the Element G. Looking at the photo they took for the case I must say it appears to be an attractive case.

Turning to the final side of the box we see the final list of features.

Image Description

  • Gaming – Colorshift Fan with 6 color changing patterns for optimal gaming experience
  • Glittering – Three enlarged color shifting fans creates most eye catching appearance
  • Gradational – Adjustable fan speed control for performance mode or silent mode
  • Gigantic – Massive storage capability with 7 x 3.5″ and 2 x 2.5′ HDD or SSD bays
  • Glaciated – Excellent thermal performance with glacial airflow


Once done looking at the features of the ThermalTake Element G that are provided on the box it is time to open it up. As you can see below the ThermalTake Element G is packed in a relatively typical way.  Styrofoam is on the ends and it is wrapped in a protective cover.

I thought the Thermaltake label on the protective bag was sharp. It is much nicer to use it to protect your new case if you transport it to LAN games like I tend to.  Using this to protect your case during transport instead of your wife’s bath towels will draw much less spousal agro.
