Element Qi w 200W PSU

Thermaltake Element Qi

Thermaltake Element Qi mini-ITX case is ideal for very small systems built on Intel's Atom and NVIDIA's ION platforms. With its extremely small dimensions of 5.1 x 8.6 x 13 inches (130 x 220 x 330mm) (H x W x D) and a low weight of merely 6.8lbs (3.1kg), the Element Qi can fit on the smallest desktop or even on the shelf between your books.

Quintessence of Personal Computing

The Element Qi represents the quintessence of personal and entertainment computing as it lets you shrink all the formerly huge components such as audio cards, video adapters, network cards and the like into one tiny system with sleek and elegant looks in a dominating black color with distinctive red lining.

Quick Installation

Quick and convenient installation is provided by an optimized case design that allows you to use standards peripherals such as a 5.25" and even two 3.5" (one internal, one external) devices.

Impeccable Quietness

Quietness is provided for by an overall chassis fan-less design with ventilation grids on the right and left side as well as on the back. The specially designed preinstalled 220W SFX power supply also works without a chassis fan, further reducing noise and energy consumption

Handy Front Panel

Built in two USB 3.0 ports and the front side HD audio connectors add to the overall convenience, while the Power and Reset buttons are very easily accessible on the front panel.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case, HOT PSU.

Pros: compact size, easy to use.

Cons: PSU runs hot, RAM with heat spreaders may not fit, low clearance for CPU cooler.

Other Thoughts: I got 2x4GB Team Xtreme RAM to use in my setup and it is a hair too tall to fit under the PSU. the PSU actually rests on the RAM heatspreader.

The PSU runs almost too hot to touch.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: Price
Comes with 220 PS
Size - small
Holds a full DVD drive

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Do not buy a small case and then make a review that compares it to a large case cooling. You can't have it all.

This is perfect for a small office computer that you use STOCK cpu fan on. This is not a kids overclocking case so don't bother.

Its perfect for a dual core ivy/haswell using stock fan and a SSD.

Small cases are more cramped, again do not expect this to have the room of a full tower ATX it wont.

You do not need super case cooling for a ivy/haswell dual core. Again do not expect this to have same cooling as a full size tower.

4 out of 5 eggsit's got its good points

Pros: Mini-ITX case, USB 3.0 & audio front ports, 220W PWR Supp,
5.25" & 3.5" drive bays, a unique HDD side mount, and supports a full size video card (must be single-wide though), good design with nice paint job.

Cons: Tight work area makes it a challenge to do a good job placing components and routing cables, heavy duty USB 3 cable is not very flexible, power supply doesn't leave much room above CPU fan, make sure video card doesn't have mounting nuts a top (like VGA port) or it will be hard to install (HDMI or display port at top is better.

Other Thoughts: After populating a MB, it usually takes me about 20 mins to assemble a system. This took a couple hours. Partly because I had to undo things and start over. I had to remove the memory to slip the board in. Fortunately, the CPU and fan could stay on the board. Note, don't purchase "high standing" RAM. You may be better off without heat spreaders. Note, read up on the hard drive placement before you start too.

I went with an AMD system and there wasn't much room between the CPU fan and power supply. A thinner and maybe longer power supply would be nice or, place it under the drive bays.

Thermaltake needs to ease up and the thick/heavy cables. Not only were they hard to flex they were a bit long too. They should provide a couple SATA cables with straight plugs since, the motherboards typically come with right-angle ones now. And from my experience, right-angles don't work well in this case (pun.)

Lastly, I stuck the included rubber feet on the bottom of the case, not on its edge. As it turns out, they designed the packing foam assuming you would put the rubber feet on the case's edge. So if you want to pack the case back in its box and you put the rubber feet on the case's bottom, you're going to have to get out a knife and cut a slot in the foam to allow for the rubber feet.

A better selection of components would make this case easier to work with. For instance, going with the ASRock B85M-ITX LGA 1150 would have been a better design to suit this case. Also, I think the stock fans from Intel sit lower too so, this CPU would have been better too, Intel Core i3-4330 Haswell 3.5GHz LGA 1150 54W.

I still like this case, partly because it was a challenge and, because is has potential for interesting combinations of parts. Outfitting this with a blu-ray, SSD and data drive is definitely doable.

5 out of 5 eggsHave Two (2) of these.

Pros: Small, Quiet, Power Supply Included. I have two (2) of these units. Chose low power i3 CPU(s). One is running OSX, the other is running VoIP (TrixBox). Love these units, would buy another again.

Cons: Like others have mentioned, they are tight. As long as you take the time to keep your cables neat, there shouldn't be any problem.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent case

Pros: Could fit possible anything you need for a small setup

Cons: Doesn't state on the description that you will need a low profile CPU cooler.

That moment you lay the PSU back down = Fail

Other Thoughts: Front connect cables are way to long for such a small case, was that really necessary ?

3 out of 5 eggsHOT

Pros: Small, decent looking case for a low-power build.

Cons: HOT! Horrible air circulation with PSU mounted directly above CPU. No accessory fan mounts, so you have no options to improve airflow.

Other Thoughts: I put a simple dual-core Llano (FM1) build in this case using the integrated GPU. Just with media center tasks, the top of the case gets very, very hot and the stock fan howls at full speed. I would not buy another one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat affordable ITX case

Pros: 2 - USB 3.0 Front panel headers
Comes with a 220W PSU
Shipped super fast, pretty case, SUPER compact.

Cons: Can get kinda crammed in there if you don't manage your cables right. No 2.5-3.5 HDD conversion plate. No big deal, I took it from my Roswell case, don't expect to always be pampered.
Also, had to take out the power supply to get the motherboard in and the front panel connected.
Nonetheless, you can't get small and the space of an ATX to work with, so I'm not docking any eggs for the cons I mentioned here.

Other Thoughts: Make sure that 220W is enough for what you're running. If not, get another PSU.
I love the fact that it basically has 1 of everthing: You can put a DVD burner, a multimedia card reader, a hard drive, an SSD.

Running:
* Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
* Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5" 120GB
* Gigabyte Ultra Durable 4 Classic GA-B75N Desktop Motherboard
* Thermaltake Element Qi w 200W PSU Black SGCC Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 220W Power Supply
* CORSAIR 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM
