Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Case Review

Rating: 8.0.

Thermaltake has been making cases for several years but they also have many different product lines such as power supplies, CPU coolers, fans, keyboards and mice.  Today we have the opportunity to review one of their new full tower cases.  The case we are going to examine is the Thermaltake Overseer RX-I VN700M series chassis.

The Overseer features USB 3.0 and a BlacX hot swap drive caddy that supports 2.5″ SSD and 3.5″ SATA on the top panel. Thermaltake include a single 120mm fan along with dual 200mm fans to handle the cooling and if they are using good quality fans, then the noise levels should be impressive.


Key Features:

  • Pulsating lighting effect.
  • E-sports gaming style front bezel.
  • USB 3.0 SuperSpeed via internal 20 pin connector.
  • Top-mounted HDD Docking Station enables blazing fast file transfer and effortless hot-swap capability.
  • Black coating makes stylish inside look.
  • Bottom-placed PSU design for better and easier installation.
  • Supports most advanced AMD & NVIDIA® graphic cards up to 12.5″/32cm.
