Specifications, Availability and Pricing
This mini-ITX desktop or HTPC chassis is made from steel inside and out, and the front is capped with black plastic that houses the signature Element red trim. The outside of the entire chassis is black while the inside is left exposed. In the front there is room for a full sized 5.25" optical drive above a slot for either an internal 3.5" drive or it can be used to install a floppy drive externally. Below these you find the front I/O panel behind a cover with a press to release lock. Once the panel is open it will expose the connectivity for the two USB 2.0, MIC, and headphone jacks.
On the floor you will find room to install only an m-ITX motherboard. Due to the placement of the included 220W SFX power supply, motherboards that require much more cooling than what you will find on my Intel Atom board, this won't allow for much in the way of additional cooling, and is specified for just such a board for that reason. The power supply contains the only fan that will be cooling the chassis. As the Q is shipped, it hasn't any additional fans, but will allow for an 80mm to go in the side if additional cooling is needed.
Now, I'm all for great deals, and when the great deal happens to be on something that packs more than what you expect it to have, makes that deal so much sweeter. Thermaltake offers you room for full sized components, offers sleek looks, and takes it a step further with silence while under power. But at what price? I am pleased to say that the Element Q isn't going to hit that hard in the wallet for what you get in return. One look at Google shows that there is no shortage of this chassis. While not the best price I found online, Newegg.com asking $64.99 isn't the cheapest, but it is very competitive, plus there is that homey comfort feeling when dealing with Newegg over some of the lesser known companies. Whether you press your luck for the best pricing or go with the tried and true, I am about to show you it is well worth that pricing!
