Product on Review: Thermaltake Element G
Manufacturer and Sponsor: Thermaltake
RRP: Approx £100 / $156 / €120

VL10001W2Z or Element G as its officially known has been available for over a year but we thought we would review it anyway as we progress through the case reviews. The Element series has many members, there is the V, T, S and of course the G today.

The Element G is quite specifically designed for the gamer (although the packaging intimates 'Professional'), by featuring colour-shift fans and a very stylish appearance complimenting any gamers domain. It features high calibre cooling - 3 x 200mm and 1 x 140mm. Impressive for just a mid-tower case.

Thermaltake's Take:
When designing the Element G, Thermaltake engineers opted for a classic, changeful chassis, with color change features to optimal gamer's in-game experience. Element G sets new industry standards for gaming chassis by allowing users to change the color of the lgihts in different game simulations. The Element G is equipped with 3 Colorshift fans to create strong, dynamic and exciting atmosphere to make gamers perform better.


So where does the Element G get its so called name 'G'? It's all about the G's. See below (taken from Thermaltake website)
