Thermaltake Element T Review
Final Thoughts The Thermaltake Element T has its cons as every case does with less than $100 for a price tag, and at $59.99 plus shipping, I can say that it clearly ...

The front side of the packaging box is fairly simple, sporting the company logo, series logo, and a head-on picture of the case with the 200mm "silent" LED exhaust fan.
On the other side of the box, the same logos are again showed, along with tons of small pictures for each major feature, mostly focusing on air flow and cooling. Also shown are basic features of its exterior and interior.
Upon taking the case out of the box, you will find the hardware bundle sliding around inside the case. Included in the bundle is the user manual and warranty, and for hardware there are liquid cooling pass-through protectors, long screws to fasten your front panel fan(s), a ton of thumbscrews to fasten the case doors, expansion slots, drive bays, the PSU and mainboard standoffs, one being unusual to me, but I've only had a few cases since I began system building, so it may not be that unusual. But that will come a little later; let's start taking a look at the case, shall we?
