Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Final Thoughts
Overall I am very, very happy with the Thermaltake Overseer RX-I PC Case. The main problem besides its name is how difficult the side panels are to remove and re-install. In this day and age with the advancement of technologies it should not cause actual pain to remove the side panels from your case. I go in and out of my case quite a lot so this is a big issue for me. For those of you that build and forget then you will only encounter this problem once or twice. The paintwork on the Overseer looks very nice but is easily damaged. After photographing and installing hardware inside I have quite a few scratches on the back panel, if this was a $50 case then I wouldn't mind but it isn't so extra care needs to be taken if you want to preserve the good looks of this case.
Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Conclusion
In this section I am going to write a brief five point summary on the following categories; Performance, Appearance, Construction, Functionality and Value. These views are my own and help me to give the Thermaltake Overseer RX-I PC case a rating out of 10. A high or low score does not necessarily mean that it is better or worse than a similar PC case that has been reviewed by another writer here at Benchmark Reviews, which may have been given a higher or lower score. It is however a good indicator of whether the PC case is good or not. I would strongly urge you to read the entire review, if you have not already, so that you can make an educated decision for yourself.
Performance of the Overseer RX-I is great. Temperatures of my overclocked system stay well within limits and the noise level is very, very low indeed.
Appearance is marmite when it comes to Thermaltake cases, you either like them or you don't. The Overseer I'm sure will be no exception. Is it bad to like in-your-face overly complicated designs like this?
Construction is second to none, apart from the issues discussed about removing and re-installing the side panels that really let this case down.
Functionality is top notch. There isn't a lot that this case is missing and there is ample free space to fill with extra hardware.
As of mid-October 2011, the Thermaltake Overseer RX-I (model VN700M1W2N) costs $128 from Amazon.com. In this price range are cases such as Antec Nine Hundred Two v3, NZXT Phantom and the Rosewill Thor V2. Where the Overseer RX-I may not win in looks it definitely wins in features, I could not ask for much more. This case is well worth that asking price.
+ Good construction
- Tool free 5.25" clips are a little weak
Final Score: 8.80 out of 10.
