Summary: My two complaints about the product is that it's kind of loud. But I knew that going into the purchase and didn't care. Secondly, I do wish it had a door on the front. So make sure that all your drives have black facing or else it will look strange. As far as delivery, it was super fast, but it is not packed inside a plain box. You get the case like you might have walked out of a store with it. Not cool to be sitting on your doorstep all day until you get off work.
Summary: Well, first off, I LOVE this case. There is tons of room inside and although I haven't intalled a water-cooling system in the predrilled top holes, I do plan on it with my next hardware refresh. The air this thing moves is amazing - my parts are all always cool. Dust filters do their job reasonably well - in a house with 3 cats I merely have to run a dust brush over the front and side intake to clear off any build up.
Summary: For the money, this case is hard to beat. Excellent airflow, easy drive installation. My only wish is that it was a couple inches deeper, to accommodate a long video card AND the internal fan that can be attached to the mount holes on the drive cage. GPU and CPU temps dropped 5-10 deg. C with this case.
Summary: I live in Hawaii and my apartment has neither AC nor a way to get the trade winds to flow through. Because of this I picked up the TEMPEST, even with temps in my apartment in the high 80's low 90's my rig runs stable, its often much cooler in the case that outside even playing Crysis on High. The install was one of the best I have had. I could of liked a removable mobo tray, but their was lots of room to work.
Summary: I'm sure this is a fantastic tower, unfortunately I can't get one that isn't broken to verify. I just put in a request for my THIRD replacement tower. The first one arrived beat all to hell, why you ask? Because Amazon thinks slapping a shipping label on the side of a box that has NO PADDING INSIDE makes for an acceptable way to ship a PC tower. It arrived broken, I called to get a second replacement and report the problem.

Summary: The Nzxt Tempest Case is a excellent case. It has plenty of room inside making installing the components a easy job. It comes with all the fans (6 of them) included so cooling those components is not an issue. The bottom mounted power supply is a nice feature, keeping its heat away from the processor. This is not a light weight case, the weight is substantial. One thing that could have been added is a set of casters which would help in moving the case around.
