Great case, the VESA mounting bracket uses M6 screws FYI

Pros: - Great looks
- Easy to change out heat sinks, RAM, and GPUs as I do this often.
- Great build quality

Cons: - Assembly can be a bit jarring if you're used to traditional PC cases.
- Gaining access to the 3.5" inch drives when wall mounted is a pain.

Overall Review: I really love this case enough that I decided to purchase 2 more and mount them on a desk using the Mount-it MI-705 desk mount that I purchased separately. Bad choice-- it turns out even though both the case and the mount are VESA 75x75 and VESA 100x100 compliant, I was not able to mount without making modifications to the mounting bracket. This is because the MI-705 desk mount only provides compatibility for M4 type screws where-as this Thermaltake case requires M6 screws. Long story short, I was lucky to have the right tools needed to drill wider holes in the mounting bracket on the MI-750, and I now have 3 of these cases suspected about 4 inches above my desk. Love it.

The big downside here is that I won't be able to gain access to the storage drives without pulling them down off the mounts and removing the bracket. Something I can live with since it's usually the GPU, the RAM or the CPU that I'm upgrading or switching out often and I rarely touch the storage.

Great case, highly recommended.

Core P3

Pros: Looks great
Great space for cable management
Will display your components beautifully
Great modular case with many looks

Cons: Will get dusty so always keep a can of air at hand and make sure you live in a house with no kids or cats as your components will be exposed. Other than that its great!
Also the instructions are a bit confusing so if this is your first case you are gonna have a hard time.

Overall Review: I've own this case for about 3 weeks and I absolutely love it! I had my pc components inside a Masterbox lite 3.1 and the temps were horrible. Since switching to this case I get about 60c-65c on full load (compared to 75c-85c) using a 120 AIO. For those wondering, yes, you can install the PSU vertically while using a mATX mobo (although you will have to route all the cables into one of the provided cable routing holes) and my Thermaltake RGB PSU looks great on it!!!!!

Amazing Chassis | Not So Amazing Assembly

Pros: -Beautiful
-I never have to put the whole thing together again

Cons: -The instructions are awful
-None of the screws are marked
-Required more that a few Google searches to get everything installed

Overall Review: The case is easy to make your own.
Although difficult to put the whole system with this chassis, it's nowhere near impossible for a novice builder (like myself) to get their machine built before the end of the hour, in fact I'd strongly suggest beginners use this case to help them develop their skills.

Missing a Bag of Screws

Pros: Can't build a case if I can't mount a motherboard or HDD/SDD for dear life. There are no pros.

Cons: I'm missing my HDD and MOBO Screws because who needs those to piece in some components of a computer. Maybe I should just tape my shit to a piece of metal next time and see if that works.

Overall Review: Where are my screws?

Thermaltake Core P3 Black W/O Riser Cable (riser cable capable, hardware included!)

Pros: - Very well packaged, full-size styrofoam wrap and plastic-wrapped parts inside.
- Solid steel construction, no plastic. Main chassis was slightly above average case-comparable gauge steel, while accessory pieces and mounting brackets were heavier gauge (The bracket for a fluid reservoir is almost 1/8th inch thick!)
- Acrylic panel mounting standoffs are ridiculously strong. I expected hollow steel tubes with fasteners on the end, these are solid steel stock, drilled and tapped. Each one of these standoffs weighs 450g (1lb).
- Unique minimalist design, highly customizable for different equipment setups, and accommodating for existing hardware. (I was able, surprisingly, to mount my Corsair H80i radiator with it's short hoses, though creatively).
- Unexpected full-size magnetic mesh filter on body, good fit and solid stick.
- Flush face face buttons and USB ports, nice sleek design.
- Inches of depth to the cable-management area, tons of room to work and tie cables up.
- Plethora of different screws for different applications.
- Future proofed for upgrades for quite a while, this will probably be one of the last cases I buy, through modularity alone.
- Enough parts included for riser assembly for GPU, even without the riser cable included, happy surprise.

Cons: - Manual set up confusingly, though not as bad as some reviewers would have you believe, see notes for details.
- Obnoxiously bright blue LED for the power light, easily changeable with a little solder work though.
- Heavyset, ironically, considering it's minimalist approach, but use of heavier material makes up for it.
- Acrylic truly is too easy to scratch, mine came with very slight scratches beneath the paper it was wrapped in. I'm considering the tempered glass, but maybe later.
- Case is a little unwieldy for moving around, definitely a "move it when you have to" kind of case. Not for LAN parties.
- Flush front-facing buttons and ports aesthetic is kind of ruined by their ham-handed use of socket-cap screws on the front bottom bracket in assembling the case. Really guys, didn't have four more countersunk screws to use?

Overall Review: Most reviewers agree that the manual is useless, and I'd give that a resounding maybe. The manual itself is set up a little strangely, more akin to an IKEA instruction book. For example, when installing the PSU bracket, it says;

1. Place the PSU in proper location.
2. Adjust the PSU supporting bridge to the proper location and secure the PSU with screws.

Yeah, it doesn't exactly tell you which screws to use, and that's what most reviewers say. What they don't say is that on page 1 of the manual, it tells you exactly what screws are used for what.

6-32x6mm qty: 30 Used for: PSU, PSU Bracket, VGA Module.

Of course you always have to follow the old machinist's rule. If the hole is threaded and your screw doesn't fit, you're using the wrong screw. If it fits but it's too short, you're using the wrong screw. One confusing note is that the manual states the Mobo standoffs are 6-32x5mm, while the screws are listed as M3x5mm, so I'm not sure how that got mixed up. They are not interchangeable. Regardless, you'lll have more than enough 6-32's to do the job.

To be fair, I only noticed the screw use list a day or two after actually assembling my rig.

I got the version that came without the riser cable since I've heard the packed-in ones are garbage, so I'll eventually get a nice PCI riser cable to turn my 1070 upright.

Instructions weren't clear, but I found my way through it
