As the name implies, the Razer Tomahawk Elite is the upgraded model. Razer calls the mid-tower case "the ultimate PC chassis" and it shows: the case comes with built-in liquid cooling rig designed by the pros at EK Waterblocks in its guts to keep your high-end components nice and chilly. Two wing-style tempered glass panels that open on the sides for easy access, as well as a curious top panel that automatically lifts up for improved ventilation when internal temps get toasty. It also has an inverted ATX layout for improved placement.

Tomahawk Elite Features:

  • Hydraulic-powered top glass panel
  • Vertical wing doors with custom gas piston hinges
  • Customized black braided cables & cable management accessories
  • Easily accessible top I/O ports
  • Bespoke liquid cooling solution powered by EK Waterblocks
