Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Case Review

The TT Overseer RX-I

There is more to chassis’ than just looking good. Do not get me wrong, making sure the chassis looks good is a major contributing factor when choosing a chassis for my computing needs. But, there are other factors we all need to look at when making our final choice on a chassis. These other factors that I consider are:

  • Size: will the chassis be large enough to handle all of my computer hardware 
  • Installation: will installation be effortless? (This also includes times when we need to upgrade our computer components, and when we need tear down the computer for cleaning purposes)
  • Cooling: the chassis needs to keep all of our expensive computer hardware cool during our times of either browsing the internet or when we start one of our many long gaming sessions that can last for hours.
Thermaltake Overseer

The Thermaltake Overseer RX-I happens to be one of the very few chassis that I have used over the years that fits my unique computing needs. Also, it doesn’t require some form of slight modifications to make certain items fit properly (I will go more into detail about this a bit later in the review).

Giving the specifications of the Overseer RX-1 chassis a quick look through, we get an idea about this chassis, on its size, what it can handle as far as fans, and the features of this chassis. So considering that this chassis sells for $129.99 shipped, we get quite a few features/options with the Thermaltake Overseer chassis. Well, as far as chassis are concerned that is.

Which brings me to the question of, “What makes this chassis any different from the countless other chassis on the market today?” There is only one way for me to answer this question, and that is for me to dive right in and start tearing this chassis apart. And, I do mean literally tear this chassis apart. So go ahead, turn the page and let’s get busy, shall we?
