In the world of cabinets and cases, Thermaltake stands out as a premium brand providing the best build quality cabinets with the features you need. Nevertheless, most of the cabinets from Thermaltake stand out from the other brand cabinets if you put it next to each other.
There are different types of cases varying from size to build quality to features, and more. But Thermaltake’s open-air cabinet concept has been one of the popular ones as it allows you to show off your build from all perspectives.

Thermaltake Core P6 Packaging & Contents
The Thermaltake ships out packed with a thick brown cardboard box with details of the case, and also has a sticker on the front to indicate the color of this cabinet. The Thermaltake P6 cabinet is available in four colours – Black, White, Racing green, Turquoise.
Opening up, inside you, have two thick styrofoam securing the Thermaltake P6 and a plastic bag around the case to protect the cabinet from any sort of fingerprints –
Inside, you also get a box with all the necessary items that you’ll be needing for the build right from screws, a good amount of velcro tapes, rubber rings for the drives, metal GPU bracket and even a mounting bracket to fit your GPU vertically.
Thermaltake P6 First Look & Overview
Once unboxed, the Thermaltake P6 is massive. Both in terms of size and weight. The massive space allows you to basically add any parts, be it hard tubing or soft tubing, full-size GPU, 360mm AIO, be it whatever you can easily add to the Thermaltake P6.
In the front IO, you get good support and it consists of 2 USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0, 1 USB C and the 3.5mm mic & audio jack. It’s more than enough compared to the other cabinets with just 2 USB ports on th front.
Taking a look at the tempered panels, you have it on the top, the front and the sides making it look gorgeous. The tempered glass used here is almost 4mm thick and you also get rubber lining to ensure the temper doesn’t shatter due to vibrations.
On the backside, or simply put the rear panel of the cabinet is a thick metal that comes with 6 thumbscrews. The best part is that this also comes with a VESA compatible, so you can easily wall-mount just like any other Core P case in the market.
Thermaltake Core P6 Closer look
Thermaltake P6 is all about customizability.
You can literally tear down this beast to the metal rods holding the chassis together. This makes it an open-air setup by removing the temper panels and a few screws on the side.
Inside, you have everything you need to build the perfect PC. The layout and features are quite traditional, both the sides of the chassis i.e the front, and the sides have space to fit 2x 140mm fans or 3x 120mm and on the top, you can fit up to 360mm.
And please don’t worry about the GPU clearance, you’ll have plenty of space. You can even fit in an action figure in between the gap.
Talking about GPU, with Thermaltake P6 you have the ability to install your GPU normally or vertically. And not just the GPU but even the PSU as well! This can be done by removing the existing PSU casing to make the space and using the available vertical mount from the accessory box.
The only downside of using a vertical PSU is that you need to opt for an mATX or ITX motherboard.
On the back, we have two separate mounting plates for additional storage. Each holds up to 3 SSds or 2x 3.5 inch HDDs. So this makes it a total of 7 to 9 hard drives in total.
On the back, we also have the VESA mount which is super solid. This mount can hold different holes from 200×100,100×100 and 75×75 mounting systems. So, you get the complete freedom to mount your system if you need to do so.
The cables in the Thermaltake Core P6 are decent and pretty long. So, routing them for your build won’t be a problem.
Thermaltake Core P6 Conclusion
The Thermaltake Core P6 retails for anywhere between ₹15,000 to ₹16,000 among various retailers in India. Globally, you can grab it anywhere from around $190 to $200.
To start off, the Thermaltake Core P6 isn’t for everyone. Considering the price, it might be steep when you are considering all the other parts. But if you’re looking for a spacious cabinet that can be wall-mounted with tons of customizability, then this is the missing part of your lego. The Core P6 is the perfect fit among the Core series. The Thermaltake Core P5 focuses more on an open-air design whereas the Thermaltake Core P8 is too big and not many would even have the space for it.
Whereas the Thermaltake Core P6 joins right between the Core P5 and Core P8 by keeping the option to modify your cabinet, not too big, not too small and even has the compatibility to wall mount it as well.
With tons of customizability, you can get the perfect airflow PC with this build. For my build personally, there’s nothing fancy. But if you are going for a water-cooled PC with hard tubing and stuff, there’s plenty of space for the reservoir and space for the tubing curves as well.
Coming to a conclusion, the Thermaltake Core P6 is an all-rounder with tons of features and customization options, but we all know great things come at a cost. So if you are okay to spend, then the Thermaltake Core P6 might be the perfect fit for you.
