Case Build & Finished Product
Being completely open from the front, we have no issues seeing the AIO we chose to use, and we can also see the end of the video card off to the left, with the PSU visible at the bottom.
This view, however, is the money shot for the Core P3. Every part we installed is in full view through the clear side panel. There are wires visible as they are routed to the closest opening in the motherboard tray, but due to the locations of them, what you can see is very limited.
At the back of the Core P3, there is no place for a dust shield at the top. We had no issues installing the video card, but if we wanted a multi-card setup, we would either need to grab another riser, or flip the expansion slots into a normal orientation. The PSU easily installs at the bottom, screwed into the bracket, and supported with an additional bracket near the front.
Wire management is not the easiest thing to do inside of the Core P3, but with a solid side panel, it matters very little. Considering you can install 3.5" drives in here, on top of a thick mounting bracket, there is tons of room to stuff wiring in just about anywhere. We do wish there were more tie points, but we realize it would have detracted from the clean look found on the other side of the motherboard tray.
After all of that work, we replaced the right side panel of the chassis without any fuss involved. Even if you do not have the width to set the chassis up for a full view all of the time, with the open air design, from just about any angle, you can still appreciate the hardware installed within.
Once we powered the Core P3, there is a constant blue LED on the front denoting system power, with the occasional flicker of a red LED when the drive is accessed. Of course, the noise can be heard from the parts you install into the chassis since only the clear side panel redirects any of the noise, but the Core P3 itself is silent, and sound depends on what it is you installed into the chassis.
