The Element V is packaged similarly to the others in this series; an all black background highlighted with a bold red accent stripe that Thermaltake has been known for. On the front is an image of the Element V, or at least the top of it, all lit up and under power.
This side panel would have told you a bit about why this chassis uses the "V" moniker, had UPS not blocked the only part that housed any information. Placed just below this is a full frontal shot of the Element V in action.
The rear of the packaging is where you will find a nicely laid out section highlighting all the major chassis features such as the multiple colors of the chassis lighting with fan control, air flow diagram and most of the chassis' internal and external features.
The other side panel holds the chassis specifications of the Element V, and at the bottom in ten languages it said this is in fact a computer chassis inside.
With the cardboard removed we see what is typical in most chassis' I look at. There is the Styrofoam top and bottom support caps to keep the chassis centered and safe from minor bumps and bruises. Also typical is the plastic liner surrounding the chassis to keep scratches to a minimum, but Thermaltake goes one step farther with the Element V. Once you pull off the outer plastic liner, there is a cloth or cloth-like liner to be found, which acts as an extra layer of protection against damages during shipping, assuring you get a quality product to your door.
