Here is a picture to visualize.

Okay I have a GTS250 and currently running 5 hard drives in my cramped cabinet. I should be fine if I upgrade to a Tempest EVO right?

TYSM for posting this pic.

I'm all set to get the EVO. Still I'm posting this linky http://www.overclock.net/computer-ca...mid-tower.html. Please go through my thread and vote honestly. I'm having sleepless nights over choosing a stupid Tower. Why does this have to be so difficult.

Just get the EVO, I got it and it's well worth it. I have some tips as well if you have any problems.


First of all, when removing the front bezel, I almost broke the front LED's when I pulled it off because it takes a lot of force. Instead,

1: Remove both side panel covers.

2: Get a flathead screwdriver or something similar.

3: Find the tiny gap between the plastic front bezel and the metal case where the front cages are, and insert the screwdriver or tool.

4: Gently pry at the top until you hear a click, then continue on the other side from top to bottom until it's completely off.

5: Be careful, it is held on by wires that connect the front power LEDs and the HDD activity LED to the area below the hard drive cages. This is necessary to clean out the dust filters or remove drive bay covers.


Also remember that tools, zipties, and tape are you friends. The neater you build it up the better.

Also, if you have any doubts about getting the EVO, the only other case in the price area that in my opinion is worth it is the CM 690 II. I hope this helps. Any questions about assembling your Tempest EVO build, ask me here - so in case someone else needs to know the information is here.
