Specifications and Packaging

The Thermaltake Element S is really intended for users looking for a functional case with minimal style features. It veers away from the usual bright LEDs, side window design that has saturated the market and provides several ways for the user to keep their components cool and silent at the same time.

Packaging and included accessories

Thermaltake Element S Mid-Tower Case Review - Cases and Cooling  34

The front panel of the Element S packaging is pretty standard and has a nice studio shot of the top of the case itself. It doesn’t include much information about the case features, but I’m sure all of that will be included on the back panel of the box.

The back panel does a great job of using detailed graphics to explain all the features available in the Element S case. It doesn’t have a detailed specifications list, which is pretty standard on case packaging, but the graphic elements gives users a decent overview of what they can expect if they decide to purchase the Element S.

Thermaltake continued its all-black theme for the Element S all the way through to the accessories it shipped with the case. Users will receive black fan screws, optical bay and motherboard screws, motherboard standoffs, an extra thumbscrew for the side panel, extra zip ties for cable management, and a special screw-in clip that can be used to secure the mouse and keyboard cables.

Thermaltake also chose not to ship the Element S in any old plastic bag. Instead, they gently wrapped the Element S in a soft cloth-like carrier that keeps the case free and clear from getting scratched or damaged during shipping.
