Summary: Would have given this 5/5 If I hadn't had any problems with usb ports on the front.
Pros: * LEDs look awesome * Very spacious, easy to organize cables * Case looks great
Cons: * Had some issues with the standard USB ports on the front of the case. The pins got bent really easily on one of them and the other usb port was slightly bent when it arrived and wasn't usable at all.
Pros: The case is massive. This makes it easier to install everything. Plus the fan expansion options are awesome. I was replacing an older thermaltake case so I took 2 of the 233mm fans from that and put them in this one. I love the easy pop off panel design too. The 2 USB 2.0 and 3.0 front panel inputs are nice to have too :D.
Cons: The only con is that the front inlet 233mm LED fan sometimes does not spin on it's own. Occasionally I need to pop the front panel off and poke it so it will spin up when starting the computer.
Summary: Have ordered another case from a different manufacturer only because I have seen the case in person and it is what I really want. The overseer really can't be beat for the price.
Pros: First build case. Easy to work in. Quality high. All cables in tact and easily identified. Came with rebate so price was right
Cons: Additional fan for top was hard to find. Moved front fan to top and purchased a new fan for front. A still a little tight but worked ok. Not a big fan of the blue LEDs. If you plan on using a fan on your side panel, you will have to watch the height of the CPU cooler. For this I removed one egg. A case this size should not have this problem.
Pros: Great aesthetics, stock fans provide excellent cooling and are very quiet even at max RPM. I am upgrading from an (admittedly outdated) Thermaltake Xaser III and I am already seeing 15ºc temperature decrease on my i7 4770k when running Prime95 tests.
Cons: I'm deducting 1 egg for unclear and possibly incorrect information on the max CPU cooler height. Case is advertised as being able to take up to a 177mm CPU cooler, however from my experience I can tell anyone looking to add the optional side fan that 160mm is the max height for a CPU cooler which leaves you with MAYBE 1mm of clearance between the fan and cooler. I'm using a 160mm NZXT T40 Respire. This information should be included in the description. Didn't include ...
Summary: Thermaltake gives you the option for the rebate to have $2 deducted from your rebate total to receive it 7-10 days after processing instead of normal 8-10 weeks. I decided to take the $2 hit and will update later if it was worth it.
Pros: Great aesthetics. Excellent amount of fans that comes with the case that provide great cooling. My i7 4770k @4.4ghz runs Prime95 maxing out at 70c compared to 85c in my previous (admittedly outdated) Thermaltake Xaser III Case
Cons: I'm taking 1 egg for the lack of clarity with the requirements for CPU cooler height and I want to clear this up for everyone. I have a NZXT Respire T40 (now discontinued) cooler that is 160mm H. This case says it can handle cpu coolers as high as 177mm.. now I was curious after installing everything and seeing very little clearance left for an additional fan so I moved the top fan to the side panel and there is QUITE LITERALLY 1mm of clearance between the fan and the...
It looks sweet, but case modification is needed for use with the Cooler Master Seidon and probably the Corsair Hydro series

Summary: I love the way this case looks and with it being a full tower case, there's lots of space to put your devices and allow for great air flow. The stock fans all glow BLUE! Most cases don't glow unless you add your own fans, but this one does. If you know how a Razer Naga has the glowing Razer logo on their mice, Thermaltake did the same glowing/pulsing on the symbol on the front of the case between the power and reset buttons. (It glows blue as well!
