    Great to see some different style cases being mass produced. I think the market is getting quite bored of the traditional tower styles - even the really nice ones. So great effort to Thermaltake for taking that step forward.

    If anything, I think the GPU shelf looks a little clumbsy and sticks out wayyy far. I would have just included mounting points for the GPU directly onto the panel. Yeah it's harder to do, but it looks a lot better in my opinion.

    Amazing. Thermaltake is doing a great job rebranding them self. I like the direction of there new products.

    Seriously considering this as my next case along with their rad+res-pump combo. Looks extremely deep though, rather than the LiLi ones, which are flatter.

    I would really like to see what they could offer for an ITX case in a similar style...

    Yeah that's just it. I've had hands on with both and the LiLis are more refined - also way more expensive!

    Ditto - something a little thinner and smaller would be very interesting. There's a spot on my office wall waiting for it :)

    Erhm, why is it pointless what temps the set-up has? And what noise it makes?

    As you'd supply you're own cooling setup, the temp and fan noise would be caused by whatever you used.

    I must admit, I am very tempted by this case.

    it tempts me also, but I would prefer to mount my gpu's direct to the board. or if I am going single gpu to use the rizer to lay it flat and minimize the width of the design.

    I I recently purchased a new chassis the Thermaltake Core P5. It gives you the option to mount your GPU the traditional horizontal way or the more Non-Traditional vertical.. I completed my build and water loop and everything looks great... Now when I power it up the display comes on during post and as soon as it logs into win10 the display shuts down and the monitor reads a stock message (NOT CONNECTED).. When I install the GPU in the horizontal position it works absolutely perfect as usual.... Thermaltake states on the product specs page for the case the riser cable is a PCI-e 3.0 ribbon cable that works with the higher end GPU's... I was wondering if this could be a faulty riser or maybe a bios setting I am missing or a win10 issue?.. I have been troubleshooting for 3 days now... Any input would be appreciated....

    Motherboard - ASUS Maximus VII Formula ATX VII - PCI-e 16x 3.0
    CPU - Intel 4770k
    GPU- -EVGA Classified 770 single
    PSU - EVGA 750w Modular
    BIOS Fully Updated
