    [nextpage title=”Our Opinion”]Core P5 Rad support - Thermaltake native
    We’ve had the chance to test this system out for ourselves on a special occasion. The Core P5 on that occasion boasted a close loop with hard tubes which were nothing short of a nightmare to handle at that time but in the end, we finally found our way and everything was resolved. However, the Core P5 boasts a modular compatibility which is unparalleled in some aspects. The triple mounting system and the full LC for pre-built and custom kits will surely attract enthusiasts and modders alike. The Core P5 shows that the designers and the engineers went back to the drawing board and spent some time at it and tested it the system towards perfection.We’re glad to see the Core P5 being true to the central concept of chassis and case modding and we’re very hopeful that the system will make many people happy with their investments.
