A bold new full tower chassis has entered Thermaltake's eSports line-up today dubbed the Overseer RX-I. It boasts quite the head turning design and will no doubt gather much of a love or hate relationship straight off the bat. Features wise, it is decked out to quite the extent and should attract a lot of buyers at its 102 ($140 odd U.S.) price point.
Running dimensions of 535 (H) x 220 (W) x 580 (D) mm, the steel case weighs in at 10.3Kg and features an all-black paint job, inside and out. Its top mounted I/O panel gives a couple USB 3.0 ports as well as 2 x USB 2.0 ports, one eSATA and headphones + mic ports. There are four exposed 5.25" bays up front as well as five tool-free 2.5/3.5-inch bays internally and a couple pre-drilled holes at the rear for water cooling setups.
The case can accomodate Extended ATX motherboards and graphics cards that are up to 34cm long. Its cooling subsystem comes in the form of three fans total; there is a large 200mm fan with blue LEDs running at 600 ~ 800RPM up front; another of the same type on top, as well as a 120mm fan running at 1000RPM at the rear.
As an added bonus and further giving the case a good splash of value at the aforementioned price point, it comes with a hot-swap docking station up top for easy 2.5 or 3.5-inch HDD mounting.
