Closer Look: Interior
In this section we will have a good look at the interior features of the Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Chassis.
The Thermaltake Overseer RX-I has a very large interior measuring 365mm from the back panel to the drive bays x 455mm top to bottom x 190mm deep. Before you get to this stage though you will need to remove the side panel and boy what a job this is. I had to endure actual pain in order to remove the side panels of the Overseer RX-I. This is an area where Thermaltake may want to invest some $$$ into R&D as this isn't acceptable on a case of this level. I have a nine year old Lian-Li case (PC-6087) that doesn't have this sort of problem so why has Thermaltake yet to catch on.
Aside from the problems removing the side panels we have a very nice interior and lots of cable routing goodness. The Overseer has everything that you need for a nice clean unrestricted install.
Removing the front facia gives access to the internal 5.25" drive bay covers and also to the massive 200mm blue LED fan.
Removing the top panel gives you access to a second 200mm fan and another place to install another 200mm fan. The fan is 30mm thick but under the top panel cover there is 40mm of space.
Normal thumbscrews are used to install your PCI devices, this is a good idea as most tool free options are sub par when it comes to heavy video cards etc. There is a 120mm TT-1225 Black fan (1000rpm,16dBA) installed in the rear of the Overseer for exhaust.
