Hardware & Documentation
At the top left, we find a handful of screws to mount the PSU, PSU bracket, and the VGA module. This is followed by the standoffs and socket to secure them, Thumbscrews to install the VGA riser card brackets, and M3 screws to mount the motherboard. The next row offers screws for the rubber feet and the pump bracket, screws for the large plastic and steel feet, 2.5" drive screws for the plastic drive trays, and M3 screws for SSD mounting to the steel. The bottom row shows the 3.5" drive screws, the support bar for the VGA module, foam washers to be used with it, and the screws to mount it.
Ten plastic zip-ties are given to help manage the wiring inside of the main section of the chassis. Thermaltake also offers rubber washers to use with 3.5" drives mounted to the steel plate, four rubber feet so that the chassis can be used in the horizontal like a test bench, and a motherboard POST speaker.
These are optional brackets we did not use for our build. On the left is the pump and reservoir bracket, followed by the second VGA bracket to use with the module we did install. To the right, we have a PSU support bracket to allow the fan to face the clear panel when using smaller motherboards, and a two-slot expansion bracket to use with Mini-ITX motherboards.
Thermaltake sends along a flexible PCIe riser cable which allows the fan side of the video cards to be in full view through the side panel. This is also a later revision of cable then what we saw in the Core P5, which did have some issues with power hungry cards. The black covering the cables is not just for looks, it is also metal backed and is used for shielding purposes as well.
The manual starts with a full parts list naming what everything goes to, in an effort to simplify the build process. It then continues with an explanation of how to remove the right side panel, what parts can go where, the various orientations of components, and should be enough to get most users through the build process without much hassle. There is also a pamphlet about the two-year warranty the P3 comes with and explains what is covered for this term.
