Thermaltake Element V NVIDIA Edition Chassis

Storage 785 Published by

Thermaltake relased their Element V Nvidia Edition case.

The chassis measures 532 (H) x 220 (W) x 537 (D) mm, weighs about 14.13 kilograms and is meant to be used in high-end gaming configurations powered by NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 470 or GTX 480 controllers. As such, it uses the full tower form factor, so that it can house even the largest motherboards, and has a graphics card 'air duct.' This duct was designed in collaboration with NVIDIA and is meant to improve the cooling of three-way or Quad-SLI configurations.

In addition, the PC casing features support for 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drive bays, five 5.25-inch bays and a top I/O panel, with audio, eSATA and four USB connectors.

In order to make the Element V NVIDIA Edition truly part of the green team, Thermaltake outfitted it with a number of green LED fans. There is a 230mm Colorshift fan on the side, for intake, a 200mm Colorshift on top and a pair of 120mm spinners on the front. There is also a 120mm fan at the back.

The chassis is set to start selling in April, which means it will become available around the same time as the cards themselves.

"Nvidia shares Thermaltake's commitment to ensure the enthusiast community receives the best possible products that solidify the PC as the best gaming platform, period," said Tom Petersen, technical director at Nvidia. "Through collaboration with Thermaltake's leading engineers, we are excited that the Thermaltake Element V Nvidia Edition is capable of providing an awesome gaming environment for our next generation of enthusiast graphic cards, including GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470, running in 2-way, 3-way, or even Quad SLI. Put simply, it rocks!"
