Great case, plenty of room. Very slight QC issue.
12 December 2013
Summary: Great case. More room than I could want, and airflow is optimal. I love the fact that the front panel has eSATA and USB ports along with the usual MIC and Headphone ports. The 5.5" drive enclosures are plastic snap on that work pretty well, but if you're anal about the small amount of play some of the drives may have, it has screw holes just in case.
Summary: This is the first Thermaltake case I've purchased. All of the others I chose for my builds were usually picked from a magazine review but this time I decided to take a chance on something different. I did however look at cases from the same manufacturers I had used in the past. I needed a full tower case with plenty of room inside yet one that didn't weigh a ton. I do a lot of image and video editing plus website design. Then there's enough gaming to keep anyone busy.
Summary: Great case, well built very nice ventilation the LEDs are not too bright as to bother you if you sleep in the same room as your PC. I did have to unplug the fan LEDs but the ones in the case where no problem.
Great case, check height of 3rd party cpu cooler <= 7"

Summary: Great case! Double check before ordering cpu cooler. Must be <= 7". Went with Thermaltake Frio OCK Universal CPU Cooler, think I should have went with water cooler. With all the fans unit is still quite. Case= Thermaltake Overseer RX-I VN700M1W2N, OCZ Fatal1ty 750W Modular 80PLUS Bronze Power supply, GigaByte Motherboard GA-Z77X-UD5H, Intel i7-3770K, 32 gig Patriot Memory Viper 3 Series, OCZ Technology 128GB Vertex 4 128gig SSD for OS Win7 Pro (should have went with...
Summary: The tower came with little in the way of photo descriptors. It took me two days to find the right photos to set up the motherboard. The tower would be better if it had a better or photo guide rather than dealing with vague words describing what needs to be connected.
Summary: It is easy to hide your wires in this case. The case comes with 3 large fans and does not make much noise. While I would not put it in a bedroom it would be fine next to a TV without disturbing anyone. I was moving from 1 case to this one and expected to spend some time getting it the way I wanted it. It 90 minutes it was done a booted. The case with 700W PS and 3 fans was expensive but I am done with cheap cases trying to get everything to fit.
Summary: Purchased this as my first attempt into actually building a computer (never having built one before). Like others mentioned, massive case with tons of room. Multiple fans work great. Standard Blue LED lighting (though I wish you could customize the colours). Occasionally, the front fan might make a 'vibrating' sound (but it's not a major issue). Overall, pretty quiet for a massive machine. Please note, the side panel window is made of really thin PLASTIC.
