If only it wasn't so full of glass. A side panel, sure. But the other side, top and even the optional front panel glass is kinda disgusting.

This is what original should have been. This one i would consider as the case that i might buy. Previous ones no. It is bad that they don't offer mesh top addon.

the upright mounts are nice.
i wonder if the brackets for the P22-D5 res/pump combo fit them ????
Hmmm? Can TTL find out!!!

as it stands, the ThermalTake P22-D5 is a very tight squeeze in this case. a 360 rad in the roof cannot have push/pull (unless you put the pull fans the other side of the top-plate) and the max rad size for the roof with the P22-D5 is 25mm thickness (either PP or single)... if you want the nice shroud to hide the drive caddy and cables.

front panel = thumbs up
back glass = thumbs up
back PSU cover = thumbs up

a rad in the front of this case would look fugly.
the rad position in the top of the case is recessed... meaning you cannot see the rad sides.
whereas, in the front you would.
Prepare for the worst. Assume losing. Then... if the opposite occurs... BONUS!

It just falls short for me, I really wish they’d have included mesh for the top and stuck with steel on the back at least now it’s looking more like a HAF.

i love the original one to death, but the lack of airflow is real. Just purchased the mesh front panel for my h500p, even loving the looks, airflow is very restrictive...
