NZXT Tempest

Modders-Inc
22 January 2009
  • Excerpt: “Tempest” – A violent windstorm. NZXT has christened this chassis with a moniker that makes you believe that this case can be the “king of airflow” in both name and self proclaimed title. The Tempest tears in to Modders-Inc attempting to blow us away with it’s features and design principles. Is it truly able to perform as it touts, or is it literally full of “hot air”… Let’s find out!
  • Pros: EXCELLENT Thermal management on Air cooling, Enclosed Radiator mounting for water cooling, Good cable management offerings, Good performing *Quiet fans*… out of the box!, Expansive hard drive mounting options, Good looking asthetics
  • Cons: No side filter for the window fan

NZXT Tempest case review

  • Conclusion: The Tempest is a nice case for enthusiasts. If you can look past a few minor gripes, it should serve you well. There were no “dealbreakers” with this case – if you like the look, it would make an admirable chassis for your high end system. As with any aesthetics, these are strictly matters of opinion. The ample interior space should allow a great deal of system growth. You can currently find the Tempest for around $120 .
  • Pros: The steel chassis is well constructed and sturdy, Giant fans on top, Keeps cooler than control case, Lots of space for HDDs, Ports on top, Mostly matte finish, High MoBo/ Low PSU, No standard port plate, No ‘pokey’ lights
  • Cons: Poor quality assurance (arrived scratched), Cheap plastic parts, Needs some creative cable management not to look cluttered inside, No fan controls

14 August 2008
  • Summary: The NZXT Tempest Case will be a big hit amongst enthusiasts. Affordability is obviously very important to most folks and this case is very well priced considering what's included. Air flow is crucial and with 6 included fans (4x120mm & 2x140mm) this case is king in that department. HDD storage space is also vital and with space for 8 HDDs this is not a problem.

  • Cons: Won't support advanced video-card setups, Unusual power-supply layout not ideal for everyone, No front-panel FireWire port

NZXT Tempest

2 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Look familiar? That’s the first thing we said when pulling NZXT’s Tempest out of the box. Save for a few minor modifications to the chassis, this case is a carbon copy of Antec’s Nine Hundred chassis. It’s built like the Nine Hundred, performs like the Nine Hundred, and even glows like the Nine Hundred, thanks to its front- and side-panel blue LED fans.
  • Pros: Plenty of room; eight screwless hard drive bays, lots of cooling; pretty lights.
  • Cons: Fan speeds not customizeable. Not exactly the most innovative case we've ever seen.
