Thermaltake, the world’s leading brand in performance PC chassis, high-efficiency power supplies and innovative DIY computer peripherals, is proud to announce the world’s one and only NVIDIA certified full-tower chassis for next-generation ultra-high performance graphics cards, the Thermaltake Element V NVIDIA Edition with support for the latest NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 480 and GTX 470 GPUs. With the additional support for eATX form factor motherboards users enjoy a maximum of expandability for future upgrades.
“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 six 3.5” hard disks and one 2.5” hard disk or Solid State Disk (SSD). 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 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.
In addition to the oversized 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, found on the standard Element V chassis, Element V NVIDIA Edition chassis also incorporates an exclusive 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 the graphic cards’ intake to increase heat dissipation and achieve optimal cooling efficiency.
The Thermaltake Element V NVIDIA Edition full-tower chassis is available for an MSRP of US$ 219.
