Unboxing and Building the Thermaltake CORE P1 Mini ITX Open Air Case

Say hello to my little friend

Thermaltake-CORE-P1-YellowDo good things come in small packages? It must be true if a long time saying states it. Thermaltake, must have taken that to heart and figured if the CORE P5 had a smaller family member it can be just as good. The Thermaltake CORE P1 Mini ITX Open Air Case proves that to be true. With all the rugged good looks and talents of the P1 it is sure to impress. Being easier to move around and taking up a lot less space the CORE P1 will easily find a place in your home.

Our videos below will show you all you need to know about what comes in the box and how to assemble the Thermaltake CORE P1 Mini ITX case together.


So you may not like the CORE P1 in its natural color and you want to paint it. No worries as the case can be taken apart so that you can paint all or only the parts you want. How many other cases and you do that too?

Even thought the CORE P1 might be small you still get plenty of big options for your water cooling setup.
