Conclusion:

In the end, it's hard to find that so-called "perfect" case. Personally I don't think one exists that will ever hold up to my extreme standards. I'm rather picky when it comes to cases, but the Tt Overseer RX-I left me pleasantly surprised. The only thing that bothered me that I'm struggling to get past is the annoyance of the screws on the HDD mounts. I just don't understand why Thermaltake would take a step back and require screws on HDDs again. I would rather deal with hard-to-bend plastic mounts than to have a screw-in configuration. This annoyance doesn't completely cancel out the great features it does have though. The blue is something I like, but I know not everyone wants this color so I respect my readers by saying blue doesn't win it all. Overall, it's a pretty solid case, and I can see myself using it for my secondary build for some time to come. It's smaller than the HAF 932, which is nice even after all my love for that 932. Once you "burn" off that weird plastic smell that it emits for the first week or so, she's so silent you hardly know you even have a computer anymore. I was honestly worried my CPU fans weren't even running because it was so quiet. The hot-swap bay on top is just icing on the cake. I'm not completely infatuated with its appearance, but the quietness and performance almost find my true love.

 

Pros:

  • Super quiet
  • Just the right size
  • Hot swap bay for HDDs and SSDs
  • Blue LEDs (a Panda favorite)

 

Cons:

  • Front panel comes off way too easily
  • HDD mounts require screws
  • Cost is high but justifiable
