Serious about watercooling? This is a bad argument in my opinion.
To clarify, I fit 2xRX 360 on the top, 1xRS 360 on the bottom and 1xAlphacool ST120 on the back of my X9 without any issues whatsoever.

But to be fair, I understand why people pay the premium for CaseLabs and I would do the same if I could afford it. smile.gif
I had the pleasure of building inside a CL and there is a difference you can actually feel.

These brands serve different markets and comparing them isn't really fair.

Yes, and? What is the problem with this?
Same thing with bench trays; does that make them bad? Not everything that doesn't fit your needs deserves mocking, so please try not to pollute.

dumb people overspending on caselabs and now feel ripped off, trying to vent

I'd rather call you dumb than people with CaseLabs cases. smile.gif
If you're chasing the bang-for-the-buck option, others can afford premium. Is their stupidity allowing them to afford it? I think not.

So dust is not a problem for you?
Might as well keep ur parts on a bench then. lol.

So a clean environment is mutually exclusive with aesthetics? I am afraid I don't follow, what exactly are you being condescending about?

For the record I was running open benches for three years... in a dusty environment.

Just bought one. Used my $20 gift card and going to sell my Corsair 540. Case is beautiful! I love how you can see the graphics card.

Don't, it has ZERO air-flow.

Probably thanks to some of their PSUs getting banned in some places and producing cheap knock-offs.

The case is essentially an open test bench with a sheet of acrylic suspended 8 inches above it and minimal air flow restrictions. Also, the PSU exhausts out the back just like 99% of cases out there.

I highly doubt temps are going to be a major issue on most setups, even high-end ones. Sure, some cases with a lot more active cooling will do better, but if you parts wouldn't overheat sitting on a table, they aren't going to overheat mounted in this thing.

Block of plywood, Drywall screws and a custom etched pane of glass is cheaper, more effective, more reliable and comes in custom sizes. This thing is basically just a uselessly small bus deflection. My comments on air-flow around the radiator and serious lack of additional radiator mounts are 193% valid.

Now, if you wanted to go ooooold skool with huge ambient radiators sticking out horizontally into the air for convection flow... this case looks kinda good.

Frankly I'd also want a "single card" version of the PCIe shelf.

AND THEN I'D MOUNT IT IN THE BOTTOM OF A CORSAIR CARBIDE 540 so I don't have to spend two weeks a year keeping lint and spider webs out of my computer.

I had the Snow White one in my Cart last night...Almost pulled the trigger. Wow the negativity on this. It's an Open air case. Jeesh. Not all cases are designed specifically for you or my tastes.

 

I'm also surprised here on OCN as the case is a decent Base for what it is. Tailor it to your own needs like we've done on hundreds of cases before this one in my opinion.

#1. Additional capacitance and impedance on the PCIe bus connections = FAIL

We don't need a stupid deflected pcie bus slot set, we need a case that lets us spread the damned cards out... platform should be "as per normal" but stood-off from the mainboard and spread out further so that if we had 7 x16 slots we could fit at least 5x 3 slot cards into it. This case's 90° half-board is useless because it has FEWER slots and doesn't add functionality but does reduce reliability.

#2. Limited cooling options for closed loop hardware = FAIL

What if I have two 295x2? A couple Fury with radiators? How about if I have a pair of FP2D's? That single 360x120mm radiator mount is egregiously useless, radiator systems stick out beyond the 120x120mm grid, they actually stick out at both ends! So say I've got an H110, there's no place left for me to mount the radiator of even a single 295x2 or even a hybrid card's radiator. This case was obviously designed by an idiot.

#3. No provision to stop hot air recirculation = FAIL FAIL FAIL

Look at all the builds with a radiator mounted in them. Google image link. (Click to show) And how stupidly built they are. They all have point-blank recirculation of air coming from the radiators AND THEY BLOCK THE EXHAUST OF THE RADIATOR! This is THE WORST CASE I have ever seen sold as a top-of-the-line gamer wonder. There's no provision for cool air presurization or exhaust, the power supply vents directly into the case without being exhausted and all airways are not only blocked but are convolutedly blocked. I wouldn't put a AM1 board with a kabini in this case for fear of it overheating.

#4. Overclock.net code of conduct would cite my immediate impression as a violation of terms = UBERFAIL.

If I look at a computer case and my first reaction is "what the fuggedaboutet is wrong with these sticking brake pad brained knuckle draggers" then the case should have never been put on market.
Seriously ugly, seriously badly made, seriously overpriced and seriously SERIOUSLY poorly designed. The person who designed this case was the kind of kid you must never tell "you can grow up to be anything you want" because if they'd tried to be a pedestrian they'd have gotten killed by traffic while trying to read the "PUSH TO CROSS" sign.


The ThermalTake Core P3 is shiny garbage: Don't buy it.


Buy a Corsair Carbide 540 instead.

Look at those huge 140mm fan positions on the front and top. I stuck a full size server board in one of these with a pair of Noctua 14D on the sockets and still had room for a cat and a box of 12g shells.

How much is corsair paying you?

Obvious that you are against Thermaltake... Seems you ratched up the bias just a tad here in this thread though. There's hundreds of cases out there? Or are you performing a public service to save us all? I've liked plenty of your previous posts that have good insight so this one surprises me.

 

Honestly you seem to have an Agenda on this one... and are sounding quite shilly... No offense intended but please articulate your position. I see someone asked "are you paid" to come off so toxic towards this case as you provided an alternative to "Purchase corsair" as well. your words...:o
