Summary: I would recommend this case. It's a sturdy design made with decent materials for the price you pay for it. And has more than enough room to work with expansions and upgrades in the near future.
Pros: Steel case with 3 decent fans that are also nice and quiet. Very simple to pull apart and clean. Has multiple screens to help reduce dirt coming inside of the case and the feet on it work well to help reduce vibrations. It even has a convenient area cut out for the underneath the CPU for those us...
Cons: Not very many cons that will hurt this case, but you do need to think through on your cable management as despite the relief you can fill it up quickly. The other is you may have to unscrew the top fan in order to work some of the wiring to your desired motherboard as the top left corner becomes ...
Pros: -Leaf blower fans are nice, big, and quiet - Blue color lights up the room with just the right hue - Has lots of room for more fans or radiators - Has a top E-SATA port which is good for whoever uses it (I know I don't) - Well placed cable management slots for cables
Cons: - Not as big as a full from what I've seen but still just as good - The rear fan is a plain black fan with no LED which was disappointing, but can be easily replaced - Has a rather small side window. Although, that is primarily due to the space given for a side 200mm fan
Summary: I would recommend this case to any one with a high end gaming rig.
Pros: Its got a ton of space for my AMD Radeon R9 390 Series card, and it looks great to. This case is really big, the picture makes this case looks smaller then what it really is. It keeps my computer parts cool, every part runs about 27C but the video card runs about 38C, but all in all really nice.
Cons: I had a little trouble with the wire management. When I was feeding the cables to the back, the back side of the case would not slide on and gave me a little trouble but I got it to pop on.
Nice cable managment and helps the computer run cool and quiet!

Summary: I am very pleased with this case and love the aesthetics. It has plenty of space for all my hardware without hampering airflow. My specs: Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Snow Ed. Intel i7-950 Cooler Master Hyper Evo 212 Sapphire Radeon R9 390 Nitro w/backplate ASUS P6X58D-E 12gb (3x4gb) Patriot Gamer DDR3...
Pros: Large 200mm fans that run quiet and keep a good airflow Fits long GPU's Room for multiple drives Plenty of space for aftermarket CPU coolers
Cons: Top comes off a bit to easily The top docking station doesn't feel solid and can be a pain to connect the drive to
Summary: I am sure this is a nice case. I cannot give a good review because items were missing it was clear this case was returned and then sold as a new item. Unfortunate i received mine with less than half the items it claims to contain.
Pros: Thermal take decent case lots of space. Water or air cooled compatible.
Cons: Device was shipped as a refurbed product, No hardware was included. No stand off no cables no nothing. \
Summary: This is a great case for a gaming build. I've seen a couple gripey reviews from customers who seem to have received a unit with defects. I've been using this case for a week and no problems yet.
Pros: Roomy Easy to work with HDD trays Options for liquid cooling system Pre installed case fans are SILENT Hot swap SATA drive slot Two USB 3 (requires USB 3 header on mobo) and an eSATA port on the front
Summary: Besides the noise it makes and the harddrive connection issues when first booting from the side panel tugging on the cables it's a great looking case and offered lots of room
Pros: The case has multiple ports even a harddrive dock on top, the case looks great and was under 100$
Cons: The fans make noise like they are off centered I've taken them apart and put them back together but they rattle no matter what I do, the removable panel to hide the cables will catch your HD cables as you close the lid.
Summary: I'm currently customizing a PC for my girlfriend and now I'm gonna be jealous of her and her case. I've soldered the fans with new purple lights. But it would be great if Thermaltake made the accents removable. I'd love to paint them purple with enamel.
Pros: -Dock attached to top of the case -Large case -Easy to remove or install drives -good for managing wires -Airflow -Aluminum and relatively lightweight
Cons: -USB 3.0 and not USB 3.1 -A couple metal parts seem to have fallen off when I opened the case. I don't know what parts these are and I can't seem to make a piece fall out even when turned upside down and continues to slide around the case. These parts seem to have no effect on the computer.
