Case Build & Finished Product Continued
You are now looking at the corner, outside of the right side panel. The manual also shows that instead of opting for the large set, you can install these solid rubber feet like this, and lie the Core P5 on its back like a test bench setup.
For our purposes, this is the final version of what we went with. We see the resemblance to the Level 10 even more now, but we can now get a good feeling of just how wide this is.
Without a custom loop to install at this time, we did make it easier going with the AIO, but it gave us a chance to play with the mounting and such. What we do like about this though is that not one bit of the build is hidden from view. Oh, and that video card on its side, that's damn cool too.
There is no support for the rear I/O dust shield, but there doesn't need to be; this is an open air chassis after all. We still want to brag about the video card options, and we also see the PSU will have no issues sourcing air for the intake fan.
Before we close this side of the chassis, we did want to show some of the potential. It is plenty deep enough to take our wiring without issue, and could have tubing routed there as well. We also removed the HDD rack as it did free us up to run the 24-pin lead.
Then of course we are back to what we started with once the panel is back on. One other thing that we should mention is that the ventilated area to the left does offer a magnetic dust filter inside of it.
From any angle, the Core P5 is a pleasure to view. Air cooling is more than possible for the average users, and water cooling with this chassis is also designed right into it. And for those using pots, it will lay flat and be ready to take that on as well. Truly an open air chassis for anyone.
Once we powered things up, any noise we did hear was not a product of the Core P5 chassis, as it has no moving parts. The natural flow of ambient air is better thermally for the components, but dust can be a concern long term. The only thing that changes is the blue LED indication that the power is on, and we missed the blue LED flash when the SSD loaded the OS.
