Three Mainstream System Cases: Thermaltake Element G, AeroCool XPredator and CoolerMaster HAF 922

 

For our new system case review we selected three models from the upper mainstream price segment, which we haven't had a chance to check out previously. Which one of these products will turn out the most appealing considering that they all are priced...

The first thing we want to note in this conclusion is that each of the three tested system cases is capable of being an easy-to-use enclosure for computer components and providing sufficient cooling for them. However, each of them has certain nuances.

Thermaltake Element G Gaming PC Case

 

I've taken a look at quite a few budget cases lately and have become quite impressed with the features that some companies have been able to pack into a lower priced chassis. There always seems to be a little bit of give and take in those cases though,...

Great cable management ; Large, silent cooling fans ; Ability to install multiple SSDs ; Side fan plugs into door and does not interfere with large CPU coolers

Not completely tool less ; PSU tray can make power supply swapping a chore

The word that comes to mind when I think of this case is flexibility. The Element G seems to have something to offer everyone. Whether you like flashy LEDs or no light at all, it has you covered. Have a couple of SSDs? It's ready to go. Huge video...

Thermaltake Element G – a great case for gamers!

 

The Thermaltake Element G (VL10001W2Z) is an interesting case in their professional series that appears to be built for gamers – it is apparently what the “G” stands for. It is as though it has a dual-personality:  mild-mannered, professional and...

Thermaltake Element G Gaming Case Review

 

In the computer chassis industry, Thermaltake is well-renowned for their professional engineering and high-performance products. When designing the Element G case, Thermaltake engineers opted for a classic, yet dramatic look with the option to switch...

Coming in at an MSRP of $149.99, this isn't the lowest cost case on the market; it's also not the highest price tag I have seen. You are definitely spending your money on a quality product.

Thermaltake Element G

 

Thermaltake's element series has grown from just a few cases to an entire line with cases of all sizes and shapes. I recently had a chance to look at the Element T. Even though it had its strengths, I did have a list of complaints and issues. That...

Readers may remember I was not overly impressed with the Element T when I reviewed it a few months ago. Because of that, I was not sure what to expect when the Element G came in. Overall I was pleasantly surprised with the Element G's performance and...

Thermaltake Element G Mid-Tower Case.

 

Computer cases have evolved over time from unassuming beige productivity boxes to large, flashy, over the top recreational rigs that begged to be looked at. But does everyone want over the top? What if I want to be flashy sometimes and unassuming...

No integrated eSATA ; Not entirely tool-less

What can you say about a case that has virtually every feature a BYOPC guy wants?

Expert review by:

Thermaltake Element G Case

 

Choosing a case is a difficult choice as you have to weigh the looks, features and price. Thermaltake hits on a lot of good notes and has a solid case that can adjust to fit your needs.

Fan/LED controller ; Black interior ; Plenty of storage options

Disadvantages ; Larger heatsinks may hit top fan ; Larger PSUs lose support bracket

Thermaltake has done a pretty good job with the Element G. It has enough small touches like sheathed cables, fan/LED controller and SSD mounting to let you know they really put some thought into the case design. If you have a need for storage, there...

GREAT HARDWARE

Expert review by:

Thermaltake Element G

 

Looking for a sleek mid-tower with very unique lighting?

Now that we've come full circle on the Element G, I'm still not sure what makes a "professional" case. There are commonalities among just about every case on the market, and most of these are ubiquitous and not group-specific. Sure, there are some...

Thermaltake Element G Case Review

 

The new Element G is a high-quality steel mid-tower case from Thermaltake, bringing interesting features such color-changing fans. Let's take a look at this new case.

Top-notch quality ; Amazing number of hard disk drive bays that will please even very high-end users (seven) ; Two 2.5” hard disk drive bays ; Dust filters ; Fan speed control ; Fan color control

No anti-vibration mechanisms for the hard disk drives ; No eSATA port ; Could have one FireWire port ; Could have come with meshed covers on all expansion slots ; Could have come with black thumbscrews for fastening daughterboards ; Covers from...

Thermaltake Element G Review

 

It's all about the G with Thermaltake's Element G. Gaming, Glittering, Gradational, Gigantic, Glaciated.

Has character and style ; Can change colour of fans ; Fan controller ; Great cooling ; Excellent cable management

Poor build quality on the back panel ; Metal on metal - HDD mount ; No anti-vibration inside ; PSU shelf obstructive ; Expensive for a mid-tower case

Upon taking the Thermaltake Element G out of the box I was anticipating good things, and I can report that there certainly are some good things, if not great things about the Element G. Foremost, it stands out as being a unique case with quite a lot of...
