To anyone who has a NZXT Tempest

What is this for in the back? I know for ventilation, but it seems like it serves more of a purpose since it seems to have mounting holes for maybe a fan or something. thought i saw a picture of something mounted there before but cant remember...

possibly a reservoir? I still can't believe they put tiny holes for wc tube, It's such a dumb thing. At least make them big enuf to use.

Im not sure what it is "actually" used for. But alot of newer cases now days have ventilation holes in just about that same spot. I have seen quit a few different people take advantage of these holes for ventilation and rig/mount one of these corsair fans on there. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...2605&CatId=496 Just take the side brackets off. They seem to be the perfect size fan for the holes in the case.
Looks like this person would have benefited more by taking off the side brackets and mounting the fan flush with the case. Thus eliminating the gap between them for better airflow/performance.
