Thermaltake Core P3 Owner's Club - Page 14

post #131 of 978
Thread Starter 
Hi,

The Core P3 includes a small (2 slot) extension bracket along with the full bracket.

If you want to use the GPU mounted vertically instead of direct into the MB you can use the bracket and install your sound card directly into the motherboard while the GPU is on the riser cable.

Just need to check clearance and all depends on what you want to do smile.gif

Keep in mind the Core P3 SE does not include a riser cable, you can buy one separately if you want to use the GPU mount this way.

Hi all,

Just finished my Core p3 build. I was pretty disappointed in the cases support for 140mm gear and I had to do a lot of modifying to get what I wanted however, I am really happy with how it turned out.

Specs
CPU: 6700k
Mobo: ASUS Gene VIII
RAM: Kingston 32GB HyperX
HDD: Samsung 950 Pro
GPU: MSI 1070 Aero OC

Watercooling
Rad: Alphacool 420mm MONSTA
Blocks: EKWB ASUS Monoblock, EKWB 1070 Block and Backplate
Fans: EKWB Vardar 2000rpm ER x6, push/pull with the push enclosed inside the case
Fittings: EKWB angles and Revolver SX compression fittings
Pump: EKWB 100 Combo (D5 PWM)
Pipe: 1/2" Annealed copper from the hardware store

I changed the front panel LED's to warm white diffused as I didn't like the police look. Thanks!

This is my new project. I was wondering if anybody here tried the CoreP3 with the MSI Sea Hawk 1080. I wonder if the tubing on the card is long enough for the radiator to reach the right side of the case. I would like to put it under my Corsair H115i radiator. I did non decide yet if I'm going to plug it straight to the Mobo or if I'll use the PCI riser extension to put the GPU on the side.

Cheers

What PSU do you have going on there?

This was a brilliant suggestion thumb.gif which inspired me, but.......the little 2slot bracket, i believe will be in the wrong place, plus my STRIX is too tall to do what you suggested mad.gif but unperturbed i carried on thinking, then gave up and just ordered because i was bored of thinking biggrin.gif i have also ordered a PCIe 1x riser cable, so hopefully should be able to sit the STRIX behind the GFX card and still plug both in with the 2 riser cables. This is my theory and i'll find out tomorrow when it's delivered if my theory works biggrin.gif

What issues did you run in to with respect to 140mm support and how did you overcome them? Reason I ask is because I'm looking at the P3 or P5 for my next case and would like to recycle my alpha cool UT60 420mm rad in push pull.

To my knowledge the P3 supports 140-280-420 rads, if not I'll have toreturn my 280 rad tongue.gif. Just ordered it yesterday.

Did more of you guys run into problems with the pci-e riser cable? Mine only works when I set my motherboard to gen1..

I will post more pics this weekend when i get my new stuff, nog the case is filled with my old hardware.

hey mate, you have to cut out all the 2.5" hdd mounts and the lips top and bottom of the radiator mounting position. You also have to trim brackets inside of the case if you want to put fans inside, its a tight fit.

Just moved all my components into this case, and I love it!

Still waiting on one more fan to be delivered and I need to get a longer Cat 6 cable in black, tidy up the cables a bit but for now it's done. Really happy with how it looks, and how all my pieces ended up fitting.

When I eventually upgrade my gpu and cpu, I'm going to go ahead and do my first custom water loop with hard bends, but for now this is perfect.
