Thermaltake Core P6 TG Snow Review: Stylish & Stunning At Every Angle

Thermaltake Core P6 TG Snow

Thermaltake’s Core series of PC cases are designed to show off every component and the Thermaltake Core P6 TG Snow is not exception. Unlike the P5, the Thermaltake Core P6 TG Snow adds tempered glass panels all over, providing some protection from the elements for those who fear to thread and use open air chassis for their PC builds. However, for those who do not, there is an option to transform it into an open chassis case.

Thermaltake Core P6 TG Snow – Specifications

The Thermaltake Core P6 TG Snow comes in 4 colors, black, racing green, turquoise and white. Our review sample is in white, hence the “Snow” moniker.

What’s In The Box

The Thermaltake Core P6 TG Snow comes with the essentials you need to build a PC together with the case itself:

  • Screws
  • Velcro strips
  • Rubber O rings
  • GPU mounting brackets
  • GPU support
  • Speaker for motherboard
  • User manual

The Case

Thermaltake Core P6 TG Snow Review: Stylish & Stunning At Every Angle

Out of the box the Thermaltake Core P6 TG Snow is fairly large for a Mid Tower, with lots of room for a variety of configurations. Upon closer inspection, I noticed significant amounts of engineering was needed to put this thing together, with multiple smart features built into it, which I will explain later in this review.

The front of the chassis lies the I/O flanked by a large sheet of glass covering the front case fan mounts. It has 4 USB ports, of which 2 are USB 3.0 and the remaining are USB 2.0. It is now 2022 and it baffles me to see USB 2.0 ports on what is otherwise a premium product.

The main “showy” side houses a large tempered glass panel with rounded corners that is held together by 4 large hand knob style screws. The knobs are lined with rubber like materials to prevent scratching the glass panel during installation.

On the other side of the Thermaltake Core P6 TG Snow, you will find pre-drilled screw holes that are compatible with VESA wall mounting dimensions, allowing you to mount the case on the wall.

The top frame houses the same tempered glass as the front, with a simple mesh filter to reduce dust buildup.

Lastly, the rear of the case features a more traditional layout for the PSU and motherboard slots. The expansion slot is rotatable to allow for vertical GPU mounting, with a caveat being that you are limited to mATX or Mini-ITX motherboards. Personally I would have preferred this option to be compatible with ATX motherboards considering not many will install smaller motherboards on such a large case. And surprise, no GPU ribbon is provided but you can easily buy one online.

What About The Interior?

The Thermaltake Core P6 TG Snow has a neat little feature, where you can transform the case into an open air chassis layout by removing the glass panels and mounting plates. However, if you want an open air chassis, the P5 would be a more straightforward option. That being said, this is a good feature to have if you want to switch things up a bit without getting a separate case.

Looking at the inside, you will see a traditional yet practical layout: a floating PSU shroud, drive bays in front of the PSU and so forth. Everything is located at exactly where you would expect, making installing your components a familiar and convenient process.

Once you check the other side, you will find a radiator/ fan mount that fit up to a 360mm radiator or three 120mm case fans. Mounting plates are also present to fit 2.5″ or 3.5″ drives, making it possible to hold 7 to 9 drives at once. A steel mounting plate is located right behind the VESA screw holes to add structural rigidity while mounted on the wall.

The Finished Build: How Does It Look

After installing every component, we can only describe the Thermaltake Core P6 TG Snow as stunning. It is clean, sleek and has minimal ARGB lighting, though if you want to go that route, you can take advantage of the glass panels and go all out to showcase every inch of your PC.

Conclusion
