Introduction

Thermaltake, a company we know for flashy eye-catching cases has changed things up a little bit with the Element S. Although very sleek looking it is not as flashy as previous cases we have seen from them. As the tag line says, "Create for Pros" the Element S has many features system builders and enthusiast alike will appreciate. Some of those include 7 3.5-inch internal HDD bays, tool-less HDD installation, stealth black material and noise reduction material on the side panels. All of this comes at a very affordable price too, let's take a look...

Packaging

The Element S comes in the typical Thermaltake packaging we are all used to seeing. There is a large picture of the case on the front and quite a few diagrams on the back showing off the features of the case.

Opening the box up everything inside is nicely protected with Styrofoam and a blue cloth. I'm not sure if this is a new thing for Thermaltake, but we also saw this same blue cloth on the Spedo case we reviewed a little while ago. I hope Thermaltake keeps it up because the cloth protects much better than plastic we are used to seeing.
