Detailed Exterior Features
In this section we will be looking at the detailed exterior features of the Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Chassis.
The peripheral cable clamp is a nice addition for those who like to go to LAN parties. Let's face it all this e-Sports gear is not exactly cheap and there are people out there who won't feel two ways about taking your unsecured goodies. It might not be the most secure looking clamp but it will certainly put off any opportunist thieves who may take a fancy to your ~$100 headset/mouse/keyboard etc.
Here is a closer look so that you may better appreciate the level of detail on this case. I will leave it to you to come up with your own thoughts on this.
Here we have a fully fledged front panel worthy of your attention, we have 2 x USB 3.0, 2 x USB 2.0, e-Sata, a 2.5"/3.5" built in HDD dock. The HDD activity and power LED's are integrated into the edges of the top facia as are the power and reset buttons towards the front of the case. The big badge in the middle lights up when the power is on, and fades in and out in a "breath lighting effect" according to Thermaltake.
The front intake is filtered by a fine mesh and the 5.25" bay covers are filtered by a sponge insert.
Removing the front and top covers is easy as pie and the top panel can be freed completely by decoupling the wire connectors shown above. This is another feature that makes working with a case that bit simpler.
The PSU and fan filter is rather large so it won't be a case of simply pulling it out the back. It will have to become a part of your routine maintenance where you give your system a thorough clean out.
