Tempt Me: NZXT Tempest Review

What’s That?

NZXT provides parts needed to mount hardware, and even labels the baggies that the various parts are in. Experienced system builders may know what the parts are by looking at them, but a newbie will appreciate every bit of help he/she can get. Installing parts into the Tempest is easy for the most part. The interesting part is the abrogation of the route of wires, and unused wires. We had plenty of space for other stuff, and under the lower hard drive cage that are useful to hide extra wires.

Buying a case might not seem like a big deal at first. But, as all of our readers know, it’s personal. It would be hard to go wrong with the Tempest considering the $99 price point and performance value, including six case fans in itself. So, go ahead and give it a go. You might just be temp-ted.

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
