As I said the Element S is not that flashy at all. It has a very sleek look with nice curves. Thermaltake gave it an all black look which I like a lot. One thing that does catch your attention when you look at the case is the red accent on the front of the case. This accent outlines the front door of the case.
The front door easily opens to reveal 9 front bezel bay covers. Each cover is removable and has a filter on it to keep out dust and other particles. Moving up towards the top of the case you have all of your connections. There are 2 USB ports, an eSATA port, audio ports and the power and reset button. It is nice that Thermaltake has gone with an eSATA port instead of the usual firewire.
The top of the case has a concave look to it, as I said this case is very sleek. Towards the back there is a huge 230mm exhaust fan. You don’t have to worry about this fan being loud it only spins at 800 rpm.
The side panel of the case is very plain except for a small accent towards the back, it is much like an accent that you would see on a car. There is a small vent there, right where your video cards will be so that will give you some additional cooling.
Moving around to the back of the case you notice it is all black, none of that boring looking steel. Some things to note here, two 60mm placements for exhaust fans, a 140mm exhaust fan, and removable hole covers for watercooling. Also the power supply is positioned at the bottom of the case.
