Overseer RX-I System Build
In this section we will build a system inside the Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Chassis and see if all of the features discussed are worth it in the end.
You will get a couple of extras in the accessory package with the Overseer. Along with the bag of various screws and re-use cable ties you get an 8-pin/4-pin CPU power cable adapter, 2 x molex to 3-pin fan power cable adapters and a motherboard diagnostic speaker.
You can mount up to five SSD's using the HDD trays provided. While five is plenty any keen enthusiast will already know that you can install an SSD practically anywhere it will fit since they don't suffer from the heat/noise issues of mechanical drives.
Behind the motherboard tray there is a mere 14mm of space to route cables. Add to this the 5mm embossed part of the side panel and you have nearly 20mm clearance, more than enough if you ask me.
I was a bit pushed for time when I installed my gear into this case so the back area is a little messier than I would have liked. Anyone with eyes (all of you reading) will see that there are lots of tie down points available to give you a pro level install. The re-use cable ties provided with the case are great but a PITA to work with, sometimes it's just better to use standard single use cable ties.
Like I said in my intro, once you have all of your gear installed there is room for more still. The install looks very neat and I am very pleased with the case overall. I guess my only gripe is that the side panels are so difficult the remove and re-install.
