Nvidia Edition cases hitting the market along with Fermi.
While stopping over at Thermaltake's suite, we noticed a custom designed case with an Nvidia logo on the front.
Although not fancy, the case delivers an efficient layout with one specialty: dedicated air channeling for Nvidia's upcoming Fermi-based graphics cards.
Called the Element V Nvidia Edition, the case has multiple large intake fans, as well as a specialized cooling duct that would partially cover the ends of Fermi cards. Thermaltake told us that this way, a dedicated intake fan will draw in cool air from the outside and direct the air flow right into the intakes of installed cards. Designed for multiple graphics cards, Thermaltake told us that Nvidia officially recommends the use of Fermi-certified cases when running multiple cards.
On the side sits a large panel fan and the are fans on the top of the case that help draw hot air out of the system too. We asked if "Nvidia Edition" cases are going to be available from other vendors and were told that for now, Thermaltake is the only maker.
Availability will be at the end of Feburary/early March and will retail for $179 USD.
