    Default Thermaltake Element S

    Thermaltake's new mid-tower, the Element S, is designed to satisfy the needs of "creative professionals", so it should be interesting to see what the this case offers, both in style and function. There is an old adage in the world of design professionals: "Form follows function". Let's have a look at the Element S and see if can successfully resolve the two.

    Well I see that companies are starting to understand the whole point of cable managment! +1 on that. Other good thing there is that CPU area on the mobo tray was cut out so there is an ease of dimsantle of the heatsink without removing the mobo . But is it large engough??? thats a question to you Jake!.

    Another thing is that at last case manufacturers are moving away from cheap grey internal look. Maybe soon enough there will be an option when buying a case in which coulours you would like to have external/internal.... would be nice .

    Now I have a small request for all reviewers of the cases. Is there any chance that you could add any info about how the case is watercooling adaptive?? It may help the people to pick the right case without necesarry breaking a bank (like tj 7 or lian li cases). Just a short info about where you could mount rads in this particular case ( coz i guess thats the most pain in the A....)


    But anyways another great rewiev Jake

    Thanks for the feedback! To answer your two questions:

    -The hole in the motherboard tray is just large enough....barely. Core i7 will be out of the question unfortunately, but S775 is fine though.

    -I will start to discuss water cooling opportunities for cases. Generally speaking, there isn't much you can do with a mid-tower, to be honest. There may be, in which case it's a rarity and would get mentioned in the review. The problem with midtower setups is that you really can't fit a dual (240mm) rad in without modding. It's extremely rare, if at all. And modding a case is generally not in the scope of a review because then you're not sticking to the stock case. Just about any case can be modded to an extent (even mid towers) to suit water cooling IF you want them to be done internally. If you want an external setup, then you just need water cooling holes cut into the rear of the case, and any mid tower will suffice.

    Typically full towers are the domain of water cooling, and there are various configurations that are better for water cooling (or not). So for the full tower cases, we can definitely discuss that! I will have a review of the Cooler Master ACTS 840 coming in the next few weeks (waiting for the case to arrive) and that is a case that is begging for water cooling. So I'll definitely spend some time discussing that

    Thanks!
