But recently, I’ve had the bug for a small footprint rig for HTPC. I have had several mATX motherboards over the past year, but never ended up with a small case for them. Recently I was asked to review a Mini-ITX motherboard, and this time I couldn’t wing it, I would have to have a case for it. Imagine my excitement when I opened the box and saw that familiar orange and red Thermaltake logo. I’ve had one Thermaltake HTPC styled case, but though it was a desktop it still was large enough to house an ATX motherboard. Not so here, this one will hold only the 6.7” x 6.7” Mini-ITX board. Today I will be looking at the Thermaltake Element Q Mini-ITX Case. It is quite small, but still has room for a 5.25” drive and a pair of 3.5” drives. It also comes with its own 220 watt power supply. Read on to check out the Thermaltake Element Q!

Read on further to see what they are.
