The Element T from Thermaltake doesn't offer a ton of flash and new tool-less goodies. What it does offer is a ton of room in a mid tower, with choices. If you want a chassis with a bunch of airflow, and don't want to mod one, Thermaltake offers you the basic platform for just such a build. Pick your favorite brand fan, or the cheapest thing with red LED's, it doesn't matter, the choice is yours to make. What Thermaltake gives you is a black chassis with attractive, simple lines, and lets you be the mod artist.
The fans included, being the 200mm fan up top, and the 120mm for exhaust, provide ample enough air flow for the basic build. Since the front is all mesh, convection works its magic and keeps things at comfortable levels. If you plan to build an overclocked sleeper, you are going to want to add some air flow, as we know things can get quite toasty once we start pushing voltages. I would suggest if looking to grab the Element T, plan ahead with a few spares, or buy a couple to add to the build.
My time with the Element T was surprising and pleasurable; no cuts or odd flimsy parts. While the tool-less clips could use some work on being able to move, for the price required to have it, I can let things slide. I do look at it as if it were a more expensive chassis as far as what it offers, and to be honest, it offers quite a bit in just its basic design without having to fill it full of "trinkets" to win me over.
Shipping is always going to be a pain, and the fact that most e-tailers get twenty to thirty dollars to ship one doesn't help, but hey, it's part of the game we play. That aside, the Element T can be had at Newegg for $71.99 and for that price, even I am sold. Next time I'm asked about a good mid tower chassis with a ton of potential, the Element T is what my fingers are going to type in response.
