Introduction (Cont’d)
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

In Figure 5, you can see the top panel from Element G, which features a 200-mm fan identical to the one used on the front panel and thus having the same specs (160-mm blades, speed between 600 rpm and 800 rpm, noise level between 12 and 14 dBA).

You can see a big knob on the top panel. Thru this knob you can control the speed (by rotating it) and color (by pressing it) from the top, front and side fans. As mentioned you can select between red, blue and green plus two different alternating patterns. You can also turn off the lights if you want.

Althought his case has four USB ports, it doesn’t come with an eSATA port.

The rear panel from Element G can be seen in Figure 6. It is identical to the rear panel from Element S. It is painted black, giving it a very good appearance. The power supply is installed on the bottom of the case. Each side panel is attached to the chassis using three black thumbscrews (and not only two as usual) and there is space for installing two optional 60-mm fans above the expansion slots. This case comes with a rear 140 mm fan that rotates at 1,000 rpm (noise level of 16 dBA), which is not connected to the fan speed controller. This fan has only two wires and thus must be connected directly to the power supply, not supporting speed monitoring. Another interesting accessory that comes with this case is a cable holder for the mouse and keyboard cables, in order to prevent them from being stolen. It also has a hook for installing a padlock, in order to prevent unauthorized people from opening your PC.

This case has two holes for you to pass hoses from liquid cooling solutions. These holes, however, use metallic covers that need to be broken if you want to use them. This case does not use ruber covers like other cases that have this feature.

Now let’s take a look inside Element G.
