Thermaltake P3/P5

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I currently have my system inside a Corsair Vengeance C70 case that I love. But i'm tired of it taking up desk space and like the wall mount look of the Thermaltake P3/5 case. But i'm not sure how my hardware would fit inside either the P3 or P5. I have a normal ATX motherboard, ATX Psu, 2 Hard drives and 2 m.2 ssd. I know all of that would fit no problem in either case. Where the worry comes is cooling. I am currently using a h110i V2 for my CPU cooler and a h100i v2 for my GPU with the NZXT Kraken G12 bracket. Does anyone have any insight that would help me solve this issue? I would go to a Micro Center but living in Connecticut, the closest ones around 2-3 hours away.

 

Thanks for the help in advance guys.

I bought my P3 second hand as part of a complete system and the system had a Hybrid GPU also.  The previous owner used the reservoir mount to mount the Hybrid cooler on.  It isn't ideal because it will sit lower than the GPU, but it worked.  And on the back of the P3 there are two disk caddies that attach behind the motherboard and then on the right side of the case you can install another three drives.  I haven't installed any there because my 360 AIO is installed there.  That wouldn't prevent you from using it though.  The AIO would just exhaust against any drives installed.

IMO ditch the G12 and go back to air cooling the gpu. An open case should give you nice thermals .. unless you put it against the glass or have a blower card
