The Thermaltake Element T Mid Tower Case
Out of the packaging and into the lights shows us a simple and clean front panel that is ventilated from top to bottom with mesh covers. At the bottom is the bold aluminum Thermaltake badge that really "pops" when looking at the Element T.
At the top of the front bezel you can find the front I/O and switches. There are two red 3.5mm jacks to the left for headphones and a microphone, then two USB 2.0 connections. Also in red, the power and reset button covers are found on the right. Looking down the top, you can see the ventilated area backed by a 200mm fan.
The side panel is painted in a textured almost shiny black. This side is ventilated with a honeycomb pattern stamped in the door for an optional fan, if you choose to add one.
I'm not entirely sure as to why, but Thermaltake ships this case with a preinstalled I/O shield. For my build it needed removal and was replaced by my motherboard I/O shield. Next to this you will find the 120mm rear exhaust hole and fan. Just below the fan is a neat little clamp that can tie in USB cables and mouse cords to keep things tidy.
Moving down, we are left with seven expansion slots with snap in, vented covers. To the right is a vented area with a case door lock loop on the far right of it. That leaves us with the PSU mounting area at the bottom and the two removable, knock out covers for water cooling.
The opposing panel has no ventilation, just full on textured black paint.
Underneath the chassis you will find four, round, rubber feet that support the Element T. To the left is a ventilated area to allow the PSU to breathe from under the chassis, and even offers an adjustable support bar for the inner end of the PSU. The screws and lines of holes can be seen here. On the right side you see four dimpled holes. Those are used to mount a 2.5" drive to the floor of the chassis.
