Tempt Me: NZXT Tempest Review

That’s Looking Delicate

Turning it around, we see that the PSU is bottom mounted. We can also see the rear mounted 120mm fan and the vents just to the right of the expansion slots. Between the vent and the expansion slots are two predrilled holes and grommet labels that are for an external water cooler. Definitely some brownie points on this one. Although we can slowly see this architectural chassis revolution shaping up for some other cases (CoolerMaster Full-Towers/Cosmos S, etc.) it’s still not as populated as it can be for the public, which is something most cases honestly take a hit for. With the rise of core clock frequencies, CAS to Precharge, RAS, on memories and ever so many people experimenting leads the curvature for cooling solutions to rise. But we won’t bore you with useless graphs like other sites. We’ll make it short and concise as always.

I'm all about one thing: reviews that are easy to understand and make sense of.


  1. Motherboard Support: E-ATX, ATX, MICRO-ATX, BABY AT.

    HELLS YES! I’ve been waiting one that supports BABY AT. Very few do this day and age.

  2. I love that there are grommets. Should make it easier than to carve out stuff.

  3. “Buying a case might not seem like a big deal at first. But, as all of our readers know, it’s personal.”

    Word to that.

  4. NZXT’s 100$ case looks amazing from this review. I actually have an Antec Gaming case about the same one and I kind of feel a tad ripped off at reading this. Why couldn’t they have came out with it sooner?

  5. Just Purchased one from newegg cause of this!

  6. Seems fair enough. I might actually buy it after reading this. Ceebz, hit me up sometimes when you get it. I know you’re good at the architecture stuff. I need to know if I can mallet it for my in-line grommel

  7. In-line..ouch. Seems like that would take some hole threads 1/2″

  8. Nah. I have a good drill cap.

  9. He was talking to me! But hey, if you can send a drill cap to me…that would work *smile*

  10. Splendid review. A pleasure to read, and I just bought mine because I really felt the vibe on this one.

  11. just read this. Might take the plunge on this one. Sounds AMAZING to me.

  12. Buying it as we speak!

  13. Cool guys. Glad you enjoyed it and went out and bought like…4. 5? Whatever. :)

  14. I didn’t buy one! :-p. I might thoug….

  15. I already have one of these actually. Everything is as it is in the review. I love it and am glad I have it. Come on guys, you know I’m the smartest here. Buy this thing!

  16. SILVER CHOICE AWARD. THAT’S A VERY good thing. Not many get silver
