5.0 out of 5 stars NZXT Tempest 410 ELITE 2 April 2012
Verified Purchase
Plenty of space for cable management.

Airflow seems very good to me. Front two fans easily pop out for cleaning and access to hard drives. Plenty of space at the top for two more fans, either 120's or 140's. If water cooling is your thing then there is easily space at the top for this. There are filters for front fans and a rather crude one for the bottom mounted PSU.

The reset button is too close to the power button and tbh it's way too easy to press the reset button.

Money well spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars *Nice--Cold--Case* 21 Feb 2012
By BW - Published on Amazon.com

This case has a lot going for it.

It is roomy, with lots of slots for fans, hard drives, 5.25's, and pci expansion. The finish on the case is nice (mine came with just one or two small nicks on corners of the side panels, no big deal). The inside is finished all black and quite easy to work in. The cable-management holes seem to be in just the right spots to get cables out of the way without bending and twisting them at odd angles. It has a USB 3.0 in the front (the blue one) and three USB 2.0. The power and reset buttons are nicely placed on the top right of the case. There is a removable cover on top where you can put a radiator or up to two 120mm or 140mm fans (I used two 140mm). The front fans are easily removed as they screw into a removable enclosure and run off of one shared power connection. The 3.5" bays are all easily removed and accessible simply by pulling out the fan enclosure in front of them. If you are using an SSD or notebook drive, make sure you pull out the two metal pushpins on the one side of the drive bay or it won't go back in right (this in no way affects the secureness of the drive). You also have a handy storage box w/lid on top which is handy for thumb drives and other things. I usually keep the thumb screws for the side panel in there when I am in and out of the case a lot, keeping them out of reach of my curious cats. The case comes with lots of screws and even some zip ties to tie up your cables.

This is a list of 'extra' hardware that I put in the case with my build.
1 more NZXT 120mm fan for the front intake (two come with the case, one front, one rear)
2 140mm Cooler Master fans for the top (exhaust)
1 NZXT fan controller for 5.25" bay (the one with the sliders)
1 NZXT Sleeved orange LED 2m gives the case a great 'hot iron' glow

Note that including the fan on the power supply, the cpu fan and the two fans on the video card, this makes nine total fans... Maybe a bit overkill, but the case felt kind of empty without them (with room for three more I believe?). Needless to say, the computer runs remarkably cool.

As far as negatives go, I thought it should have included the rubber pieces that go on the hose holes on back of the case and one on the inside panel where the bulk of the wires go through but maybe I was mistaken. I am not a huge fan of the tool-free design on the 5.25" bays. I prefer to just screw in the drive for a more solid feel. Also, I have found that I need to do something to dim the front LED's for the power and HDD, they are blinding! These are definitely not deal-breakers though, just advice really, for when you buy it.

Overall, I must give the case five stars because it is everything I wanted and I am very happy with it. If I would have gone for a fancier overall setup with color-coordinated motherboard/ram/video card etc. for the build (and spent a few hundred more dollars), I probably would have gotten the windowed version. At the time of purchase however, this case was thirty dollars less than the one with the glass so I felt it was a better choice.

If you want a real good look at the case, there are videos out there that give you a nice tour.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Design Bad Quality and Customer Support 27 Nov 2012
By Lanrad - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this case when it first came out in 2011, so I've had much time with this case. I like the way everything is laid out and the size of the case. Fits my needs perfect and can be very versatile in cooling by air and water. Lots of fan options and places for water cooling, small radiators. Many hard disk mounts, if you need more than what this case has, get and external raid enclosure. The rubber grommets inside the case for the wiring are too soft so I removed some of them, not really needed as the case is all black. Dust filters do work as they need to be cleaned often or you will see dust buildup thru the windows.

The only problem I had with this case are the removable fans in the front. My case arrived with the pins for the fan contact fallen out. These are small bent copper, which act like a spring, for making contact with the case contact. This is so you can remove the fans without disconnecting any wires. Good idea but not reliable, my other fan which had all the contacts in place, still didn't make good contact with the case. When the front fan didn't spin I had to push on the removable fan mount to try and get it to make better contact. Tried customer support thru NZXT, which they did reply and sent out replacement parts. But the parts NZXT sent were always the wrong part, 3 times even when I sent pictures of the part needed to be replaced. After going through that for over a month I gave up and just connected my 2 front fast with the fan cables. Not very hard to disconnect after pulling the front fans off the case, and doesn't require tools. Great case but don't get your hopes up of the front fans working properly all the time. I hope they redesigned the front fan connectors by now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Differences from Elite version 27 July 2012
By Clint Satterwhite - Published on Amazon.com

I'll be brief on my normal review, since others have done a good job on that. The key points I want to provide are in my Other Thoughts below.

POSITIVE: Nice, well-built and thought out design. There are lots of pass-through areas and tie stands for cable management. There is sufficient airflow for most builds and room for a nice sized radiator up top if you want to go water cooling. I absolutely love the fan caddies on the front of the case and how simply removed they are for cleaning the built-in filters. I also really like understated design. The cable routing channels on the top are rather cool as well.

NEGATIVE: The USB ports on the front right side are located on the recessed portion of the fascia. This should be fine for most newer thumb drives, or cables, but if you have something wider like a media adapter or an older USB sounds adapter, network connector, etc.. you will probably have to resort to plugging it in on the back of the case. The threads for the side panel attachment screws were not re-tapped after paint was applied which will make the initial removal of the thumbscrews require the use of a philips screwdriver.

OTHER THOUGHTS: I was originally going to order the NZXT Tempest 410 Elite, but since I am building a heavily modded system and was going to be installing a custom window, I figured I would save a few dollars and get the non-elite version, sans-window. Unfortunately I didn't realize that wasn't the only difference. I was also going to be replacing all of the fans with super quiet, led illuminated fans, so when I realized that this version only had one front fan pre-installed it also wasn't a big deal. The deal-breaker for me was the fact that the rubber grommets on the motherboard plate and on the rear of the case are only included with the Tempest 410 Elite.

This is an absolutely fantastic case and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, well-thought-out designed case, but on a low-to-mid-priced budget. If you are looking to build a system you want to show off, you should consider spending a few more bucks and getting the Elite version and avoid the return shipping costs like me. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Case 16 Sep 2013
By Violet - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It comes with a fan in the front and a fan in the back with room for 4 more fans. (1 on the bottom, 2 on the top and 1 on the front bottom) It has three USB 2.0 ports in the front and a USB 3.0 port. This case is well made, elegant, practical and very attractive.
The mesh design also covers the top. There is a large panel behind the compartment on the top that is very easy to remove and reveals a spacious compartment for 2 fans or a water cooling system.

It has great airflow. It's easy to build with and well designed. There are holes in the panel to which the mother board is attached, that allow one to run cables through, this allows for great cable organization. The trays that hold the hard drives slide out from the front after one moves the front panel. (I was afraid I was going to break it so I was very cautious. It seems fine to use a good amount of force without breaking it. I suggest one pulls downwards and outwards.) This allows for easy installation of the hard drive.

The fans are easy to remove and the power cords for the power button, power LED, the fans, etc. come already zip tied moderately tightly. This is convenient when first working on it, but I had power cord management issues and had to remove the zip ties and re-tie them later.

-Bottom Line-

Great case especially for the price. Very easy to work with, practical, spacious and good looking.
I would recommend this case to friends.

My only complaint is when the computer is asleep, the bright power LED flashes on and off, turning your room into a night club. This is mildly annoying when attempting to sleep. Still, not a big deal.

I like just about everything about this case, it shipped well, packaged nicely. easily able to repack it. the inside panel that hides the wires makes for a good clean less wired look. most parts easily removed without the need of tools.
