Next we take a look at the chassis that Thermaltake has to offer...
This case is the highly anticipated and highly demanded Level 10 case that Thermaltake had created with heavy help from BMW design studios. This case combines both looks as well as functionality to create a stunning looking case. Some people find this case to be ugly, but i find it to be quite aesthetically pleasing. The only part of this case that I don't care for is the price. These cases are currently going for $850 on sites like Newegg, Amazon and TigerDirect. I personally cannot find a bone in my body that would ever pay that much, but some people can...
As you can see, this case is capable of housing even the longest of videocards such as the 5970. There is also decent cable management in this case which makes the internals both aesthetically pleasing as well as conducive toward good airflow.
Also, if you look in the back of the case you can see where all of those cables are hidden.
The next case they showed us was their element V case with a twist, a chiller twist. This prototype setup is a proof of concept that Thermaltake wants to show their customers and the press that they are still committed to providing a phase change cooling solution. This solution in Thermaltake's eyes is still too expensive to go to market and as such is still considered a prototype. Note that they have both CPU and GPU units hooked up in this setup.
Next came another modified Element V case. This case, though, was specifically designed by Thermaltake to provide the ultimate amount of cooling to the graphics cards as possible. As a result, Thermaltake worked with nVidia to make an nVidia Certified for Fermi case. This is accomplished through the addition of a very large Delta fan and a properly sized and properly placed shroud to direct the airflow.
Oh, and as usual they decided to put as much green on this case as they could possibly imagine to make sure that you're aware of the fact that this is an nVidia case.
If full towers aren't your fancy, you can always check out the V5 Black edition which has a very nice all black look to it with plenty of fans and airflow for most users.
And if a midtower is just too much for you, you can always check out the new Element Q which is actually designed for the Mini-ITX form factor.
Next we'll be checking out Thermaltake's cooler offering as well as their LuXa2 luxury product lineup.
