So, I got me a new case.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Tempest 410 Elite. I switched from an old Thermaltake Commander MS-I ID, that a good friend gave me for free a couple years ago. It worked for what I originally had in the build. However, I ordered a brand new H100i from a guy on eBay for $60. Couldn't pass that up. Now, because it was such an amazing deal, I didn't check to see if I could clear the Mobo in the case. Turns out... I couldn't.

So, I have been looking for a new case for a bit now, and this was the push I needed to do it. In comes the Tempest 410 Elite. I fell in love with it at first sight. Beautiful case. Huge window. Tool-less HDD bays, and 250x better cable management than the Commander.

So, I ordered it yesterday, and the thing is sitting on my porch when I got home from work today. Free shipping from Newegg. (Granted it came from NJ, and I live in PA, but still)

So, here are some pics.

After:

Sorry the pictures suck. My camera is currently off being repaired.

The cable management is the best I could do without extensions. My PSU is kinda crappy and the cables are pretty short.

I'll get some better pics when the H100i and the 840 get here sometime next week.

Next planned upgrades are a better PSU and some better fans/ram.

I love this case.

Yeah sure. I was going to put in one of my other fans on the bottom sometime today, so I'll snag a few more pics.

T410 is a cool case. Bought one awhile back for like $70 shipped with promo off egg. Well built for a $70 case. Decent amount of room too. Front fans were working lachen.gif I do kind of prefer to have removable hdd brackets, just so I can have more room. I suggest you mount your 840 on the back of the motherboard tray where the big X is, then mount you hdd and dvd up top, remove all of the hdd trays to get maximum airflow. And make sure that the rear 120 is setup as intake, that way more cold air hits that H100. Congrats and enjoy. And also, that psu looks scary, and the fact that you just called it a 650w makes it even scarier weirdsmiley.gif Change it quick

As requested.





Once again, sorry for the quality. iPhone camera, plus I'm no photographer.

Also, don't let my cable management throw you off this case. I've seen other on here with the same case, and they make it look 100x better. When I get my new PSU, I might try my hand at sleeving. This case is beautiful.

Yeah, the PSU is the next thing I'm changing. I got it cheap when I got the old case, and its been running strong for over 2 years now. Never had a problem with it. No random shutdowns, nothing. And for being some cheap no-name brand, it's cool to the touch after 12+ hours of gaming/editing etc.

I'll keep in mind your suggestions when I tear it open to put the 840 and h100i in. Thanks!
