    Conclusion

    Thermaltake's Overseer RX-I is a solid full tower case with a lot of features for the price point.  The overall design is clean and looks great with the lights down.  I am starting to become dependent on the external hard drive bays and the addition is rapidly becoming my favorite Thermaltake feature.  The futuristic design is definitely going to be the deciding factor when it comes to the Overseer.  I found it clean and attractive right out of the box.

    I have always been a fan of mid-tower designs as a compromise between performance and portability but the new Thermaltake designs are winning me over.  I find the only thing keeping me from committing to these cases is the additional weight.  At 22.7 pounds (10.3 kg) empty, this is not a case I would want to lug around often but it sure does look good!

    If a full tower design is in the cards for you, the Overseer offers solid build quality and a lot of performance potential.  The flexibility of the cooling options and roomy interior should fit all but the most demanding performance builds and the combination of futuristic looks and attractive blue accents will turn heads at any LAN party.
