Thermaltake Element V Case review

1. Features, specifications

Thermaltake is one of the most popular PC case manufacturers around the world. The company offers several lines of products for everyone; for the mid-user who needs a well-built case for its PC system as well as for demanding gamers and power-users.

Today we present the Element V, a PC case armed with optimized airflow characteristics, 5 pre installed heavy-duty fans and also enough space to even install three larger fans for extra cooling.

The case features two 120 mm front mounted fans, which are blowing outside air directly through and over the drive bays. An additional oversized 230 cm ColorShift fan is found at at the side panel, responsible for taking in a vast amount of outside air and distributing it over graphics cards and CPU. Two more exhaust fans in the upper area remove uprising hot air; one 120 mm rear side TurboFan and one big size ColorShift fan in the top panel.

For users you like a vivid look and enjoy giving their case a character of it’s own, the three ColorShift fan provide with 6 color options that can be or in motion. Adjustment of the three ColorShift fans’ color scheme and fan speed are conveniently done by a dual-function know on the top front side. The dimensions of 532 (H) x 220 (W) x 537 (D) cm provide for plenty of room for high-end and power setups. The Element V can house 12 drive bays of which five are 5.25", six for 3.5" and one for 2.5" devices. High peripheral connectivity is warranted through the implementation of four USB 2.0, one eSATA and HD connectors at the very front of the top panel.

Built for ATX, EATX and MicroATX motherboards, the Element V full-tower places standard PS2 power supplies on the bottom of the case. For more advanced cooling demands or overclocking enthusiasts, punch-out holes for water cooling are reserved in the rear panel. And for those who have to frequently cool down their thirst, special holes at the left panel give you the option to install a water bottle cage. The Element V full-tower chassis is available at a suggested retail price of US $170..
