Thermaltake will be showcasing an Nvidia-themed version of its full-tower gaming chassis. Said to be compatible with the still upcoming Fermi-based GF100 graphics cards, the customized case measures 532 (H) x 220 (W) x 537 (D) mm and weights about 14.13kg, has five exposed 5.25-inch bays, a top-placed I/O panel with one audio, one eSATA and four USB ports, pre-drilled holes for the tubes of watercooling systems, plus a built-in fan controller.
The chassis includes a 230mm Colorshift side intake fan, a 200mm Colorshift spinner on top, two 120mm fans in front and another one at the back. In addition, it boasts a graphic card ‘air duct’ made in collaboration with Nvidia which is supposed to help enhance the cooling of 3-say or Quad-SLI setups.
“Nvidia shares Thermaltake’s commitment to ensure enthusiast community receives the best possible products that delivers performance that is both exciting and second-to-none,” commented Tom Deane, Program Manager of Nvidia. “Through collaboration on the engineering level with world’s leading gaming chassis provider, Thermaltake Element V Nvidia Edition is capable of providing the best operating environment for Nvidia’s next generation of enthusiasts graphic cards based on FERMI architecture running on 3-way SLI or Quad SLI.”
The Element V Nvidia Edition will make an appearance at CES but Thermaltake hasn’t mentioned when the case will become available or how much it will cost (we’re guessing over 140 Euro).
