PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
As you can see, the Element V is a big case with lots of fans and lots of room for drives and graphics cards. Just the thing, it would seem, for modern gamers and other uber-enthusiasts. The feature list is pretty impressive, although Thermaltake usage of “V-words” is a bit of a stretch in some instances. At over 31 pounds, the Element V is no lightweight, but should prove to be very sturdy.
In typical Thermaltake fashion, the packaging is both colorful and informative. Inside the box, the Element V is nestled between two foam blocks and wrapped in a white micro-fiber bag with a thick plastic bag further protecting it from damage. The carton showed a fair amount of shipping damage, but the case was in pristine condition.
Thermaltake has included a rather limited set of accessories. There are lots of screws and other hardware, as well as zip-ties, a speaker and some liquid cooling grommets, but very little else in the way of add-ons. There’s also a manual and other printed material, but no other accessories.
Let’s get the Element V unpacked and see how it looks.
