A Look Inside
When you take off the side panel of the case you realize there is no power connector hanging off the fan. That is because Thermaltake has modified the fan lead into the side panel. So when you close the panel it powers on the fan. This way there are no loose wires hanging around.
Once we look inside the case we can see that Thermaltake went with the all black interior, just like with the Element S. The black interior really shows off your components well. They have separated the PSU from the rest of the case with a large panel that also serves as a place for 2 2.5-inch SSD drives. Below where the power supply sits is a large ventilation area so you power supply gets the right amount of circulation.
If you are looking for a lot of storage space this case is it! The removable hard drive cage can fit a totally of 7 drives! That is sure a lot of space for a mid tower case! Above the hard drive cage you have room for 3 external 5.25-inch devices.
Looking towards the back of the case the 140mm exhaust fan is just a plain fan, the only fan in the case that is not a LED fan. Below that are the PCI brackets, which are the snap off ones, which I’m not a huge fan of because sometimes when removing them you can actually bend the frame of your case.
Upon further inspection into the case we can see many wires coming through holes in the center of the case. Just like with the Element S there is a very good cable management system that you can easily see when you remove the other side panel of the case.
