5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent case at a decent price 17 Aug 2008
The case is of an excellent quality. It comes with 6 fans. Two exhaust fans (140mm) on top, an exhaust fan on the rear (120mm) an intake on the side (120mm) and two on the front (120mm). The front intakes also come with filters. There are 3 external 5.25" bays (front top) and one can be converted in an external 3.5" bay. There are 8 internal 3.5" HDD bays. These come in two banks of four and the HDDs slide in horizontally. The PSU (not included) can be fitted on the left bottom. There is easy access to the cable management system from this location. The whole thing comes with a variety of cables, brackets, screws etc... There is also a handy manual included. The case is spaceous and accommodates for easy installation of the hardware, there are 7 expansion slots.

I have not come accross any negative points of the case yet.

Overall I deem this to be a quality case for the price I paid and would highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great case 13 Aug 2008
By Epee - Published on Amazon.com
Great case. Plenty of room. Advertised as a midtower. I'd say it's someplace in between an mid and full tower. With 6 fans it definitely runs cool and they run relatively quiet. If you want to monitor all of the fan speeds be sure your motherboard has enough fan headers.

The two front mounted USB ports are pretty close together making it difficult to use them both at the same time for all but the slimmest USB connectors.

I'd wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great case 12 July 2008
By monkeyboy - Published on Amazon.com
has everything the 900 does and much more but with less $$$. roomier than 900, better cabling and liquid cooling friendly! For those curious as I was the case holds 8 HDD's in its 2 cages and still has 3 drive bays open for blu-ray/dvd...etc. The 2 front fans cool HDD's. The other 4 fans do a nice job of air cooling everything else. the lighting are just right, antec's are too bright like they're trying to blind me. The case itself is very sleek looking and has enough room for the largest of graphics cards and whatever other hardware. All fans are replaceable and all grills are cleanable. All in all the best case for the money, makes me wonder why others willing to spend more money on just "brand" whatever...

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice case 12 July 2008
By Ozie Osborne - Published on Amazon.com

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. This to is a simple mod. and one I will be doing in the future. I did not like the placement of the hard drive LED (on the left side of the case) however a quick mod. put one on the front top. When the case was delivered it had damage from shipping. A quick email to the Nzxt Company brought a answer the same day advising me that replacement parts were being shipped. Overall a very nice case with great support from Nzxt.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome case with plenty of room to grow 21 July 2009
By George Nesterenko - Published on Amazon.com
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. I should also note that this case has pretty good positive pressure going because I hardly ever need to dust out the inside - in the year I've owned it I've only had to clean my GPU and CPU coolers twice and the rest of the case not at all.

As another poster mentioned, the PSU placement does make it a tad annoying to reach certain connections, but not unreasonably so. At worst, you could get extenders. Cable management is also nice with *somewhat* adequate room behind the motherboard tray to route the cables around. An extra 1/4 or 1/2 of an inch clearence would have been awesome. Another thing that this case is missing that I would have loved to have is access to the back of the CPU for custom cooler mounting. As it is now, your mobo has to come out completely to change your cooler - but hey- this thing is only $100, what can you expect?!

There are two con points that I knocked off a star for specifically. First of all - the front UI panel (USB, firewire, esata) is EXTREMELY flimsy. Both USB ports broke within 6 months. I don't really need em as I have a card reader in one of the bays that provides me with all the ports I need, but non-the-less, something that would forseeably have so much use should be a little sturdier. I'd have let this part go, but recently the POWER button has started to act up (it won't pop back up all the time, forcing the computer to immediatly shut down - can't be good for my electronics). So I cleaned the heck out of the spot behind the panel and the button itself and its a little better - doesn't shut my computer down anymore - but still won't pop back up nicely. I haven't yet sent NZXT an e-mail about it asking em to replace it, but I expect no trouble as others' reviews make it seem that the customer support won't be lacking.

Second - the two front fans are all but useless out of the box. The problem is that there is basically a dual filter on them and behind them are the hard drive cages. Each cage can hold 4 drives, I only have 3 and I set it up so that 2 drives are int he lower one and one in the top - with all of them positioned on the out edge rails so that the center is clear open to allow air to pass through from the fans. Well, even with this set-up, hardly ANY airflow can be felt from behind the drives. The filters are basically cutting the CFM down by, well I haven't measured it scientifically but I can imagine its at least 60-70%, if not more. This is fortunatly remediable - simply pop off the front panel and remove the second set of filters underneath the metal grille filter that is part of the panel. Frees up alot of air-flow and also allows you to actually see the LED fans from the front (like the picture). With the filters in, the fans are pretty much invisible (unlike the picture).

And thats it! For the price, this case cannot be beat. The fact that all the fans are included only adds to this. Just be careful with your UI USB ports so they don't snap pre-maturely and take out that second set of filters as soon as you get it. I'm also thinking of drilling some sort of cable pass through above the motherboard tray (don't know if this is going to be possible) to allow the 4 in connector cable to run that way instead of through my case (its not long enough to go behind the board, out the hole, and all the way over to the connector area).

Also, don't let my long rant and cons prevent you from getting this case. I guarentee you for th emoney you will NOT find anything better. Check some review websites - this thing cools as well as or better then cases 2-3x its cost.

Cheers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible simply incredible. 15 Sep 2008
By M. Hoover - Published on Amazon.com
I have been using Ultra towers for just about every build and even though they're a little cheaper this tower is incredible in every way! I upgraded my personal machine for the third time and in the Ultra tower it was getting too hot so I did some research and found the Tempest from NZXT and have been using it for over a month now and it's been on almost the entire time without fail. I have put my fans(swapped exhaust 120mm, PCI exhaust fan, PCI twin cooler fans) in the tower to help with air flow, but I'm not sure I needed them due to all the cooling provided by the included six fans. The cooling is incredible on this tower and even though it is a large tower it's built very well so I can use it over and over again without worrying about it breaking or falling apart. The noise level is minimal due to the quiet fans they used and the Blue LED's are amazing and for those that don't want a brightly lit tower this is not for you as it is like a little Blue beacon in the dark. The whole tower was well thought out as drives of any kind are easily removed or replaced and the tower can hold a total of eight HDD and three disc drives so there's plenty of room. The only issue I had was the clear window fan didn't work right out of the box so I emailed customer support and included my electronic receipt to speed things along and in 4 days I had a brand new fan without question so props to the customer service as well. Overall if you want a case that will cool any build you can come up with and offers what seems like endless expandability including water cooling then this is the tower for you. A+ across the board!
