Thermaltake Introduces the Element V NVIDIA Edition Case Certified for Next-Gen GPUs

Thermaltake, the world’s leading brand in performance PC chassis, high-efficiency power supply and innovative computer peripherals for PC Do-It-Yourself market, is proud to announce its collaboration with NVIDIA to design and engineer the new Element V NVIDIA Edition chassis, which is certified for the next-generation of ultra-high performance graphics cards, including the just announced NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470 GPUs.

“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!”

The critically-acclaimed Element V chassis is a full-tower gaming chassis offering low-noise operation with excellent air-flow. With full-array of innovative designs such as 11 5.25” drive bays that can be configured to support up to 6 3.5” hard disks and native support for one 2.5” hard disk or Solid State Disk (SSD). Bottom mounted power supply cage enables superior thermal management to accelerate hot air removal that can affect the life-span or performance of today’s cutting-edge computing hardware. Convenience feature includes Plug&Play side panel fan that eliminates the need to physically connect the power connector to allow user to open up the side panel for maintenance or upgrade without having to worry about damaging cable wiring. Built-in thermal control system with included fans pre-wired allows users to easily control the speed of the fan, as well as color of the included Colorshift LED fans to adapt to different working or gaming environment.

In addition to the oversized cooling fans, one 230mm Colorshift side intake fan, one 200mm Colorshift top exhaust fan, two 120mm front intake fans and one 120mm rear exhaust fan, found on the standard Element V chassis, Element V NVIDIA Edition chassis also incorporates graphic card “air duct” system engineered by Thermaltake and NVIDIA to provide added cooling for high-performance NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 and 470 GPUs running in advanced 3-way or Quad SLI configurations. The proprietary “air duct” system brings cool and fresh air directly from the outside of the chassis and accelerates it to graphic card’s intake to increase heat displacement and achieve optimal cooling efficiency.

Element V is the stock version of the chassis and is currently available worldwide. Thermaltake Element V NVIDIA Edition chassis will be available at major computer retailers around the world in April 2010.

So it has 7 or 8 PCI-E brackets?

And why oh why are cases being branded Ati/Nvidia? I'm really confused about this, it seems so tacky.

GTX480/470 run so hot that if you want to run them in SLI you will need a case with a s##tload of cool air feeding the GPU area - so Nvidia brings out this branding feature so you know the case is up to the job.

Yes and it will crumple itself when you try putting an ATi card.

Its a good case. So imho, branding won't make a difference. People will just buy the stock version still. (I should know, I am using one)

Since it's from TT, rest assured it's up to the job - on paper. In reality, most probably not.

It's the same with XFire / SLI / NVidia / ATI branded memory. The only difference is a sticker.

I like the case, but I hate those stickers with nvidia/ati/amd/intel craps. They make the case look like is for fanboys or something. I like the stickers for custom-made parts only. Thermaltake, Thermalright, Corsair, etc...
