NZXT Tempest Case

NZXT Tempest Case


What we did like:
The two 140mm fans, four 120mm fans, mesh front paneling, and abundant space provide excellent thermal performance. The streamlined look, complimented by blue LED lights, makes for an attractive, interesting case and it doesn’t look gaudy or poorly designed.  The solid construction and quality paint job further enhance this effect.

The front panel is well positioned and includes all the required connectivity, including an external SATA port.  The side window, highlighted by the blue LED fan, gives a nice effect to the functioning system and inside the case is spacious and accessible. The three optical bays and eight hard drive bays provide ample space for expansion and tool-less installation.

The case’s support for several motherboard form factors, including ATX and E-ATX means you should have little worry that it will adequately house system components, even larger video cards and multi-card setups. 

What we would like to see improved:
The noise generated by the chassis could be somewhat of an issue for many people.  Aside from noise generated by the fans, the rattling of the top exhaust fan lowers the overall feel of quality.

Who we’d recommend it to:
It seems NZXT have achieved their goals; they have created a case with enthusiast-class cooling; and with a MSRP of $99 USD, the price is also competitive.  That said, we recommend the case to the PC enthusiast and gamers on a budget.  If you are looking for a decent quality and affordable case, focused mainly on cooling, and you don’t mind a little noise, this one definitely deserves your consideration.

With the product set for release shortly at $99 it certainly seems good value for money. You can find out where to buy here.
