AeroCool's new case, the Sixth Element. The name got me thinking about what the Sixth element is, I mean if the 5th Element was the supreme being in the shape of Milla Jovovich then the Sixth element must be something pretty special.

The front panel looks pretty funky but I don't like the side panel and the inside looks a bit basic too. Personally I think it's a bit highly priced and should be around £60, there are better cases for ~£77, 400/500R for example.

When are these manufacturers gonna get the message - if its a new case us enthusiasts expect at least 1 USB3.0 on the front with a suitable motherboard header, and if you're gonna put a side window on there - WE DON'T WANT ANY VENTS! and if you are gonna go to the trouble to paint the interior make all the internal wiring black! tbh I think this case is pointless - get a fractal R3 instead as they're about the same money.

The exterior design puts me off big time, especially the front, these are the kind of cases PC World use to sell in their stores 5-6 years ago. Looks too cheap imo, could have been much better.

its no lian li

but it is a nice looking case...

and for the price, with a bit of tweaking, it could be good, i.e. cut a bigger window and ditch the vents in the current one...

if you did it with say a black watercooling setup, and a black mobo, and graphics....?

It looks pretty cool though. For a similar price, there are quite a few better cases to choose from.

The fifth element is Man. Well, not specifically; a corporeal body capable of sentient, abstract thought.

The sixth element is the Supernatural. The spirit. The holy/unholy. The unfathomable and unknowable. The godhand. Cthulhu. Forces unbound by the prison of physics.

This case does not live up to its name. And that motherboard cutout is going to be useless with LGA2011. That front intake seems rather limited by the thoughtless lack of ventilation in the bezel. Still, it's hard to find a case that has no potential, and there is a small amount of it present here.

And here I thought the sixth element was carbon. In which case this case would probably live up to its name, since it it has a bunch of plastic.
