Core P3 ATX Wall Mountable Chassis/Showcase - Black Tempered GlassThis case is a real feast for the eyes for fans of good-looking cases, modders and enthusiasts who want to put their hardware in the right way. It offers a modular construction with a huge panorama window, completely open sides and a design that has been optimised specifically for water cooling. Until now, only skilled modders have been able to enjoy this completely unobstructed view of the hardware. Previously they built their own cases, now they can buy the Core P3.
The new Tempered Glass Edition of the Thermaltake P3 is equipped with a 5mm thick tempered glass pane, which is much more durable than conventional acrylic side panels and less susceptible to scratches and damage.
The Thermaltake Core P3 TG Edition package at a Glance:
- Side panel of 5 mm thick tempered glass
- Space for mainboards up to ATX form factor
- Space for up to 420 mm radiators & reservoirs
- I/O Panel with 2x USB 3.0 / 2x USB 2.0 / 1x HD Audio
- Space for up to 4x 3.5" or 5x 2.5" drives
The Thermaltake Core P3 TG package in DetailThe Thermaltake Core P3 TG can be used as a midi, desktop or wall-mounted enclosure to suit your taste. At first glance, it's more or less the same format as a classic midi tower case, but it doesn't really fit into this category. Due to the open design and the large tempered glass pane, which covers the complete left side of the case and offers a perfect view of the installed hardware, the user has three options. Whether vertically mounted with the included feet, set horizontally or wall-mounted, the Core P3 TG looks good in any situation and definitely deserves its status as a "showcase".
Thanks to its generous proportions and 470 x 512 x 333 mm (W x H x D) dimensions, the Core P3 also supports motherboards with ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ITX form factors. With a maximum CPU cooler height of 180 mm and a graphics card length of 280 mm (with a water cooling reservoir & radiator) or 450 mm (without reservoir & radiator), the case offers plenty of space for powerful gaming hardware. To be able to cool this hardware accordingly, either air or water cooling can be used. However, the Core P3 TG was clearly designed for water cooling, since normal fans would not generate significant airflow at the installed hardware due to their design. The space available for a powerful water cooling system is also not something to be sniffed at, given that radiators with a length of 120 - 420 mm are supported on the right side.
A special feature, which benefits the overall looks of the system, is how the graphics card or other expansion cards are accommodated. Instead of plugging it directly into the motherboard as is customary usual, a riser cable is used here to mount the graphics card rotated by 90 degrees and thus standing upright in the middle of the case. The side that usually accommodates the fans of the graphics card thus becomes just as visible as the motherboard in conjunction with the tempered glass. The takeaway from this is that high-end motherboards and memory modules with their custom heatspreaders will look fantastic in this case.
The Core P3 TG completely does away with optical drives, but a total of five 2.5" or four 3.5" drives can be installed on quick-swap hard drive rails. Two of these slots are completely visible on the front and the remaining two are hidden on the back of the case. In addition, the I/O panel has two USB 3.0/2.0 ports each, HD Audio In/Out and the Power and Reset buttons. Thanks to the modular design and the eight partially rubberized cable pass-throughs, cable management is a breeze.
As a small special feature for modders and PC enthusiasts the Core P3 TG supports various possibilities to bring in your own ideas and to adapt the design to meet your personal preferences. Soon, files with suggestions for upgrades and add-ons will be available on the Thermaltake homepage with the help of a 3D printer.
