Thermaltake Reveals Nvidia-Branded Chassis

Friday Thermaltake revealed the exclusive Element V NVIDIA Edition chassis, standing tall and pretty with support for up to eleven 5.25-inch drive bays, or five 5.25-inch and six 3.5-inch with two iCage drive modules. This new full-tower gaming chassis also sports an all-black coating inside and out, and enough room for a tasty Nvidia SLI configuration including GeForce GTX 470 and 480. It also supports eATX form factor motherboards for future upgrades.

"The bottom mounted power supply cage enables superior thermal management to accelerate hot air removal to prolong longevity and increase performance of today’s cutting-edge computing hardware," the company said. "The Plug&Play side panel fan eliminates the need to physically connect the power connector to allow users to open up the side panel for maintenance or upgrade without having to worry about the wiring. The built-in thermal control system with pre-wired fans allows to easily control the speed of the fan, as well as color of the included Colorshift LED light effects."

Thermaltake added that the chassis features over-sized cooling fans, one 230-mm Colorshift side intake fan, one 200-mm Colorshift top exhaust fan, two 120-mm front intake fans, and one 120-mm rear exhaust fan. There's also an exclusive "air duct" system engineered to provide added cooling for Nvidia's GeForce GTX 480 and 470 GPUs running in advanced 3-way or Quad SLI configurations. This system sucks in fresh air from outside the chassis and sends it straight into the graphic cards’ intake to "increase heat dissipation and achieve optimal cooling efficiency."

Now here comes the price: $219 USD.

    Too expensive for a case.

    not too expensive for a case, but this case is over priced. why buy this when u can get a HAF X for 10$ less.

    why you gotta get bigger mobos yo

    I rather just use a silverstone RV2 if i wanted my gpus cooled to the max.

    but seriously that case has alot of fans lol too bad they porb aren't higher quality to produce lower noise.

    sliemToo expensive for a case.If you were going to build a high end SLI setup $220 for a good case is cheap. This one seems good for SLI and gives allot of attention to keeping those Nvidia toasters cool.
    It is big, full ATX. Not for me I will stick with my black aluminum Lian Li mid towers and one good video card.

  • Hellbound
    Not worth the money.
