Thanks for the tip. Build log started.

Can someone give me the dimensions of the slots on the lower liquid cooling mounting plate? As I plan my build, I'm stumped on how to secure the EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 (pump/reservoir combo). I'm thinking of picking up the EK 120mm fan bracket, but I'm not sure if it will work (with or without drilling holes).

Thanks,
Rob

I have built a P5 and have a P3 and the mounting bracket is the same and on the P5 Build I put in a Strix 1080 no problem

Sorry was replying to a post..DOH

I'd like to know this as well. I'm going to buy the Core P3 and I'm looking for a good pump/reservoir combo to put into it. If the EK 140 Revo D5 fits I'll do that, but I want to be sure first.

Here's the dimensions of the pump mounting plate on the P3. The camera focal length makes it look like the lines don't match up, but in reality they are all perfectly edge to edge.



The 76mm on the left side is center to center on the slots.

Thanks for the picture! Really useful.

Sadly that means it won't fit. EKWB's website says the pump's mounting pattern is 65mmx34mm (https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-xres-100-revo-d5-pwm-incl-pump)

From what I read in the spec sheet my current mother board (ATX) in my sig should fit good in the P3 without covering the wire openings yes? smile.gif

Hi, so i'm completely new here and just registered, because i really need help and all sorts of scouring on the web has found me nothing.
I really really want to get a P3 case, but there is 1 thing that is stopping me, hence my question. i need to have my external soundcard (it actually cost more than the case will, so there's no way in hell i'm doing without it biggrin.gif ) i've seen no mention anywhere, either in this forum, youtube vids, or even the instruction manual for the case, other Google searches or images to say that anyone has achieved this. All i find is cases with just a gfx card in it. So is what i'm trying to achieve even possible ?
Thnx in advance for any help or advice smile.gifthumb.gif

First, you can mount the pci-e cards in the traditional way, directly on the motherboard, with no issues.
If you prefer to use the vertical mount instead, and you are using a discrete gpu too, you'll need a quality shielded extra pci-e riser cable (but I'm afraid it could lead to some minimal latency increases) to avoid electrical interferences.
Alternatively, there's a chance your sound card could fit into the regular motherboard slot beneath the gpu, perhaps with some sort of diy bracket to secure it in place.
