After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
ThermalTake Element G Case ReviewAuthor: William West

Case Layout & Features Cont.
The trend among computer cases is to have the opening on the back motherboard tray to allow the easy removal and installation of larger heatsinks. The TT Element G is using this great design idea, and is very welcomed among the enthusiast community.
At the bottom of the motherboard back plate you will find a divider that serves a couple different purposes. The obvious one is to shift airflow around the PSU area and create specific cooling zones between the sometimes hot PSU and rest of the computer components..
The divider comes out with a removal of just a couple black thumb screws and even has spots for 2x 2.5" SSD Drives. With the divider plate removed you have enough room to install the power supply.
With the PSU unit installed you can start routing cables. The TT Element G the divider plate finds has a couple large openings to route cables thru and as we all know good cable management means better airflow and a cleaner chassis.
