I received my case today, it's gonna sound stupid but did anyone have any issues screwing the feet in? The screw heads seem to strip very easily. And the screw driver used was correct.

I also found it awkward trying to thread the screws through the hole of the feet to get into the hole.

I actually ended up taking the feet apart for easier access.

I only had an issue with one of the screws it kept trying to angle in weird even holding it straight.

I had no issues with my feet, other than the fact that my case came missing one screw for them. And also putting the feet on backwards once. smile.gif I started shaking my case to dislodge some bubbles and almost tipped it over. That's when I clued in that the feet were on backwards.. DOH!

Did you guys dismantle the feet to make it easier to feed the screws through? You can remove the metal plate. I know you're not meant to but it made it a lot easier.
post #175 of 2963
Usually I suggest to thread the screws in for the first time without the feet to cut through the coating. It make it easier to install the feet.

If anyone is missing parts from their Core P5, please message me, we will get you taken care of smile.gif

You're absoluetly right. I did that AFTER I had already damaged some of the screws, after doing that I had no issues and the remaining screws were fine. I should have done it before but lesson learnt.

But as things stand I need more screws, what type of screw are they so I can go to my local hardware store and see if they have similar?

I'm not sure what "type" they are so I know what to ask for.

Looks like you got some nice builds in the works!

The Water 3.0 Series AIO do not fit on the Core P5 in it factory condition, only a single 120mm AIO turned tube side by CPU will work for the most part.

We have been working with our teams to come up with a nice option for our customers to use AIO coolers on the Core P5.

Here is a sneak peak of the Core P5 AIO Bracket kit.

This will shift the mounting to the left side allowing AIO solutions to mount easily and offers additional storage in a 3pc set.

More info coming soon, we should have this item available in the next few weeks.

Appreciate any feedback!




Hello all, new member and first post here!

I'm buying this case for my first build and my first question is: Will ThermalTake make different colors for this case? I've seen the green version on the TT website but was looking for a white build. I know I can paint or even vinyl wrap this case but was wondering if I should just wait a few weeks anyway. Looking forward to this build! Awesome builds from everyone so far!

OCD, I took mine apart also. I couldn't for the life of me get the screws in with them assembled unless I had a magnetic screwdriver.

Good to know I'm not alone biggrin.gif

Yeah a magnetic screwdriver would have been perfect, without one it was certainly frustrating trying to feed the screw through the first hole in the plate, and into the actual screw hole.

I don't suppose you know what type of screws they are by any chance?

Sorry, I don't. @ThermalMike, any idea?
