The Thermaltake Core P5 can be used depending on your taste midi, desktop or wall-mounted enclosure. From Format ago it corresponds at first glance more or less a classic mid-tower case, but without really fit into this category. Through the open design and large acrylic glass plate that covers the entire left side of the housing and provides a perfect view of the built-in hardware, the user has three options. Whether stand upright with the included stand feet, laid horizontally or mounted on the wall, the Core P5 looks in every situation good and has definitely earned the title "Showcase".
Thanks to its roomy supply and Housing dimensions of 570 x 608 x 333 mm (W x H x D), the Core P5 also summarizes 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 watercooling reservoir) or 320 mm (without watercooling reservoir), the housing offers space for potent gaming hardware. To cool these hardware accordingly, can either be used on air or water cooling, the Core P5 was clearly designed for water cooling as normal fan, due to the construction, no air flow to the installed hardware produce. The available space for a powerful water cooling is not to be sneezed at, because on the right side radiators with a length of 120 - 480 mm supports.
A special feature, which is the optics of the system to the best, is the placement of graphics or other expansion card. Instead these as usual to be connected directly to the motherboard, here a riser cable is used, rotated the map by 90 degrees by means of which is mounted and thus in the middle housing portion is upright - the side that usually houses the fan on the graphics card, is thus in combination with the acrylic cover as well visible as the motherboard. Optical tidbits that can be excited at a maximum backplate stir in normal cases, come here so full advantage - just as well as high-quality motherboards and memory modules with email Heatspreaders.
On optical drives P5 is omitted entirely in the core, for a total of four 2.5 or 3.5-inch drives can be installed quickly removable hard drive sled, with one of these slots is completely visible on the front of the housing and the remaining three hidden at the back. In addition, located at I / O panel two USB 3.0 / 2.0 ports, HD Audio In / Out, and the power and reset button. The modular design and the five rubberized cable glands can also be realized an optimized cable management. Who wants to use the full space of 45 mm as needed at the back, can take out the three rear drive carriage.
As a special for modders and PC enthusiasts the core supports P5 various possibilities with their own ideas and bring to adapt the structure to suit the personal preferences. These files with proposals for extensions by means of a 3D printer will soon be provided on the Thermaltake website.
