I'd like to thank Thermaltake for supplying this case.
For several years Thermaltake has been making "cool" hardware for the enthusiast. This includes heatsinks, fans, cases and other cooling solutions. We are taking a look at another "Element" Series chassis today. This time we get our hands on the Element V, which is a full tower chassis with the possibility to install an eATX board as well. Thermaltake sent us the Element S (review) and Element T (review) in the past, so it will be interesting to see how this chassis stacks up.
