Closer look at the exterior
Pulling the case from the box you will see that it is far from subtle in looks. Everything visually about it is pretty extreme. Definitely putting it in the love it or hate it category. If you are a gamer chances are you love it. The entire external is cover in black paint with a small hint of blue accents. Thermaltake classify the Overseer as a full-sized enclosure. They would have to in over to support eATX motherboards and any of the current video cards in multi-GPU setups.
The beginning of the front portion of the case begins with the four 5.25 optical bays which are made of plastic and mesh. The bottom half is a mostly metal mesh which is used to hide the 200mm blue LED cooling fan.
The left side panel is part windowed and part vent spacing. The space in which the window is designed you get a visual of the higher half of the motherboard and the end of the video cards. The vent opening will accommodate a 200mm cooling fan which is not included with the case.
The right side panel has no window as one is not needed unless you want a visual of the back of the motherboard tray. But it does protrude out to add room for cables that will be secured to the back of the tray.
The top of the case is comprised mostly of mesh which covers the 200mm exhaust fan. But just forward of this is the I/O portion of the case which consists of a SATA HDD dock, two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 port along with two audio jacks. The two gray buttons are the reset and power switches. The logo in the middle glows blue when powered.
The rear of the Overseer is of a standard configuration with a bottom mount PSU opening. There are dual inlets for tubing to run to an external rad. At the top of the case is a small loop that is secured using a small black screw. This is to allow the user to secure his/her input devices like mouse and keyboard.
The case is sits high off the ground by four plastic and rubber feet. The two vent areas (power supply and optional 120mm fan) are cover by a single removable dust filter.
Here we have the top panel removed from the rest of the chassis. With it removed not only does it revival the included clear bladed 200mm cooling but another big opening for another fan of the same size.
And with the front panel removed we get a good visual of the front mounted 200mm cooling fan. Both of the included 200mm fans have a rotational speed between 600-800 RPM and run at a quiet 15 dBA.
