ThermalTake showcases the Core P5, a pretty kickass looking case that can be used vertical, horizontal or wall-mounted.
The motherboard plate is made from black steel and pretty much everything else of the case consists of transparent, acrylic windows, giving you a very good look at the hardware inside your case.
The case measures 608mm x 333mm x 570mm and weighs 12.2kg. It supports Mini-ITX, Micro-ATX or ATX sized motherboards and has room for up to four 2.5" or 3.5" storage disks. The Core P5 has eight expansion slots but like a lot of newer cases it has no 5.25" drive bays. A front I/O panel provides access to two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports and HD Audio ports. In the US you can get it from Newegg for $149.99 and in Europe places like Alternate sell it for 149.90EUR.
ThermalTake designed the case with a fully modular concept and encourages users to mod the case using 3D printing. Price-wise the case is not cheap but not as expensive as you might think.
I'm just a little bit afraid that this is one of those cases where the product looks a lot better on photo than it does in real.
