Introduction
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

Thermaltake Element V (a.k.a. VL20001W2Z) is the first full-tower case from Element series – all other models (G, S and T) are mid-tower products – coming with a controller for the fans where you can adjust not only the speed from the fans, but also the LED color and blinking pattern, identically to what happens with Element G. Let’s see what is new on this latest release from Thermaltake.

The side panels are very different from the other Element models. The left panel, for example, has a big 230 mm fan (190 mm blades, 600 rpm to 800 rpm, 57 cfm to 76 cfm, 14 dBA), a small transparent window and two latches for you to easily remove the panel. These latches feature a lock to prevent unauthorized people to open your case. This is a nice feature but not 100% safe, as the kind of key necessary to open this lock is the same kind used for the “keyboard lock” function available when computers still ran on coal.

The front panel does not feature a door and follows the same design concept found on other Element models: the front panel is completely meshed with dust filters behind it.
