Not really into the distro plate, wouldn't expect a display to be water proof xD. It is mounted behind the distro plate. I've got more photos here https://builds.gg/builds/project-tt-...ro-plate-18859

This should be a discussion about whether you should do it. What I mentioned isn't' a theory - it's the general consensus based on testing and benchmarks. If you had poor performance with a single 560mm then the loop was either improperly set up or your expectations are out of whack. Acting like adding more and more radiators will give you better and better cooling and increased performance isn't reality no matter how much you want it to be.

You asked, "Was just curious if someone has done something similar." No. You know why? Because nobody puts two 560mm rads for a single CPU/GPU build. I'll let you take a wild guess as to why.
I was thinking of something similar. Putting rads at bottom, front and top for running fanless when idling

Hello, I have a question about the GPU mount someone here might be able to answer.

If you position the GPU vertical, how wide is the actual mount? How long does it go from the base of the chassi towards the glass.

Thanks!

Hi.

I really like the design of the Core P3 (yes, I know this is the P5 club, but my questions relate to the P5 chassis as well) and would love to use it for my new gaming rig. However, I'm a little hesitant to pull the trigger because of the lack of airflow cooling critical motherboard components like vrm, ram and chipset. I have seen som diy fan solutions, rigging a fan to the side of the chassis to provide some air, but I don't like how that change the overall looks. (Looks is a high priority for me with the P3 chassis.) Liquid cooling all parts is another and better solution, but not within my budget unfortunately. Im planning a cpu aoi cooler with the gpu vertically mounted.
A lot of the builds I have seen online with the P3/P5 chassis does not have any motherboard cooling, only cpu and gpu. Even GGF's review build has no cooling on motherboard components, exept the cpu (https://ggflan.com/thermaltake-p3-review-build-2/).

My questions for you experts here are:
-Are vrm/ram/chipset overheating a real issue with these open chassis?
-Are some motherboards more suited to be used in a chassis like the P3/P5 with no airflow cooling on the mobo heatsinks?
-Would it be possible to mount a fan between the psu and the vertical gpu bracket to provide som air up through the backside of the gpu? And would it be efficiant enough regardin airflow over the motherboard?

I really appreciate any thoughts and comments on this.

Thank you.

I find the opposite to be the case (pun intended) with an open design like Core P5. Because it is open on all sides, there are far more options to control air-flow, mount fans etc.

I have several systems with mesh-side panels in addition to Core P5, and VRM temps and RAM temps on the Core P5 are lower by about 4 - 5c.

Does anyone know where to buy the metal brackets for mounting card verticle? I have used the 2 it came with, but have one more card to mount.

Guys, quick question.

Is the first PCI-E slot blocked by the motherboard? Is it usable?

Contact Thermaltake via their website. I sent them a note when I wanted a replacement window and they gave me all the details and sent me one.
