The Element G people...... have a look at the Element G. I have one and it's great. I like the exterior of the Element V, and it has lots of potential but the fact that the isn't black interior has me baffled.

HAF932 anyone? A bit of the Sniper too.

And that window is utterly useless. Great, you can see a piece of your motherboard? Like common now.

Ditch the huge side fan, and put in a full window. Then paint the whole thing black inside. It would then be semi-enticing.

Bit of a letdown, especially considering their two excellent offerings, the 'Element G' and 'Element S' . Then again, does interior colour matter in this instance?

Good point since you can't see inside anyhow unless the side panel is removed. Sure, the holes for cable management will help it to look good inside but those are mainly for airflow purposes I guess.

when you put 2000 to 3000 dollars worth of gear in a box that has a grey flat metal look it's just kinda like those parts look great but! look at the case

I can understand that. However, I've never been one for aesthetics, as long as the job is done. Then again, I bet it costs mere cents to get the interior done anyways. Plus, the Element S which doesn't have a side window still has a black interior, so it's weird that Thermaltake hasn't done the same for this supposedly more premium offering.

Not to mention the HAF932 and Sniper cases don't have their interiors painted black and everyone seems to praise them.
