Thermaltake delivers another open test-bench chassis.
The Core P3 is an open frame case, which you need to assemble out of the box before you can start building your PC. It’s very well-engineered and features some wonderfully lux components – especially the four chrome pillars that support the Perspex cover. It’s also rather versatile; it can be built with feet attached, to stand on your desk like any other desktop, or built flat as a testbench, or even mounted on a wall if you like the idea of your PC being a work of art.
It’s easy – if a little fiddly – to build, and while it’s hardly going to keep your PC quiet, or free of dust, it’s certainly a talking point. The P3 is not a case for everyone, but if you’re a bit of an inveterate tweaker or upgrader, it could be perfect, as it allows much quicker access to the innards of your average PC.
You’re paying a premium for a chassis that comes without cooling and that you need to assemble, but for serious enthusiasts it’s a valid case option.
