Sorry for the long post and the pics. Will get a few up later if people want to see the "Blue Beast" after the 4 new fans.

Keep us posted with your plans, and I'd definitely like to see it after the 4 new fans go in smile.gif

ION; I've looked into sourcing some sheet aluminium for my own modding work... surprised at how cheap it is eek.gif Just need to double check sizes as I'm having it all cut to order, then doing the finishing work myself biggrin.gif

Well ladies and Gentlemen, It seems that Newegg has stopped selling this fine case. It also seems with this the tempest evo may slip way under the radar for good as most resellers are also discontinuing the case. It's been a good run and as Tempest-Evo users we should feel proud to own such a nice case. While the market continues to favor full towers and most of that space inside goes unused by novices. We will have the perfection in size, shape, and looks sitting on or around our desks for years to come.

Long live the Airflow King! medieval.gif

Unsure what to think. Sad that an awesome mid-tower like the Tempest is now essentially an endangered species, or happy that I own one. rolleyes.gif

Seriously though, we could, couldn't we? I'm already planning on fabricating some parts for my own Tempest out of aluminium sheets. thumb.gif

*You should be happy you own one, This case may not have been the most popular but to me it's golden.

*This is a newer picture, actually taken like 15 days ago. I will be taking better shots of it in a few days hopefully to show off the better angles that the Tempest sports. thumb.gif

Very true, can't really think of anything that's really wrong with it.

Interesting... so some places are still stocking them? I wonder when NZXT will stop production.

I got mine from Amazon, coincidentally tongue.gif

Well I'm basing my assumptions on the fact that every major online retailer has stopped stocking them, however as a company they have to realize this could hurt their sales so they will probably stop production rather soon if they haven't already. This doesn't stop them and any other retailer from selling their remaining stock however. redface.gif

On another note I have decided not to mod my Tempest as I need the money to grab another tempest before they are gone. Might look into getting the arctic camo version as they are already extremely rare. I need a new tempest so I can make a model of one in Sketchup but I don't feel like running out of a shoe box in the mean time. tongue.gif
