The Thermaltake Element V Full Tower Case
Out of the entire shipping garb, the Element V from the front has an attractive look. An all black plastic front bezel with a Thermaltake logo surrounds the vented mid section. The top half consists of five removable covers, while the bottom half is covered with two larger fan covering sections.
In the last image you just get the slightest hint of the fan controller knob, and here is why. At the front of the top of the chassis is where the front I/O lies surrounded in a thick red band of plastic. Starting at the top, Thermaltake offers a HDD activity LED, a microphone jack, an e-SATA connection, headphone jack and the power LED. In the middle you will find a row of four SATA connections. In the bottom of this image you will find rather large and easy to use silver reset and power buttons flanking the twist dial fan controller with push button lighting control.
On the side there are a few things to highlight. The more obvious things like a 230mm fan placed more or less right in the center and a small window to sort of peak inside for a slight view of things that can't be seen via the mesh for the fan. Then there are the door panel latches. Both need to be released to allow the panel to "pop" open, but as you can see Thermaltake added a lock to the top latch to secure your goods during a LAN event. At the front you will see two small holes in the panel itself. These are for an optional water bottle holder that can be purchased from Thermaltake.
The rear of the chassis is not painted to match the rest of the exterior, but still has a lot to offer. The rear I/O area has Thermaltake's own I/O shield in place, which most likely will need to be removed to accept a board specific shield. The rear exhaust fan that sits to the right is 120mm and has easy release clips for removal. Under the fan is where you will find the set of keys to work the lock in the door panel. They are attached to the wire management clip to keep wires tidy behind the case. There are seven expansion slots next to a ventilated area that actually accepts 50mm fans to help draw out some of that extra GPU heat. There are two water cooling pass through holes, but are covered by knock out plates just above where the PSU should be mounted.
Not really much to say here, except that Thermaltake also added the holes for a sports bottle rack to be mounted on either side.
