Closer Look: Exterior
As with all Thermaltake cases I've seen you get an nice full color box, this is good marketing as this will stand out on the shelf next to the brown boxes.
The front of the box gives you a nice advanced preview and all of the important features and details are printed on the reverse.
The front of the Overseer has a nice look to it, the embossed mesh part is an extra nice touch. While overly plastic, the front is well made and there isn't too much variation in color shades. I'm sure a lot of you might think this is too much but I like it.
Moving round to the side we see an abstract shape window and a massive 200mm fan mount, the fan area is filtered by a very fine mesh on the inside to stop too much dust from entering (something a lot of other manufacturers leave out). Four absolutely enormous over-sized feet give the Overseer nearly 35mm of clearance, good news for those of you that like to have your case on the floor.
Round the back we see all the usual features we have started to take as standard on today's line up of cases; a bottom mounted PSU, vented PCI brackets, watercooling pass-thru holes with rubber grommets, and lastly at the top, a Thermaltake extra - a peripheral cable clamp that will prove invaluable at a LAN event. Eight PCI slots mean this case qualifies for Tri/Quad SLI/CrossFire depending on the slot layout of your motherboard.
Moving round again to the usually hidden side of the case, the embossed side panel will prove to be useful for cable routing, giving that extra ~5mm right where it's needed.
The top of the case carries on from the front design nicely, all this mesh will allow for lots of airflow all around the case.
At the bottom we see the four large feet all have a nice rubber pad to aid in grip and also prevent scratching. The PSU and fan mount are protected by a nice big slide out dust filter.
