Hi guys, I made a quick log of how I cleaned up the cables in my Tempest HERE. It was incredibly easy and straightforward. If I can do it, you have no excuse not to.

I got bored and Messed around with my Tempest last night.


First of all, removing the mesh from the window fan at least doubles airflow. I pretty much lowered my GPU, CPU, and northrbridge temps by doing so. Then I removed my bottom hard drive cage, then experimented by putting my stock cooler master heatsink's fan on the front right there. It didn't work out so well, the sheer static pressure of the fan made a buzzing noise. I have the front bezel removed right now so the front fans can pull air in better.

My biggest complaint with the Tempest EVO is how tiny the holes in the mesh are, they really constrict airflow.

My cables will not get any neater than this. The back panel is bending just to get the panel on with the massive heap of cables.

No. Maybe later, taking the back panel off and disconnecting my computer to take a picture of the back then putting the panel back on seems like a hassle right now.

HOW do you guys get your cable management so clean?

I have a non-modular power supply and I find that I have to leave all the unused clutter at the bottom of the case.

I see that a few people here also have non-modular but you've seemed to have snuck the unused stuff into the hidden compartment... HOW? I had enough difficulty closing the thing as is without those unused cables there.

Anyone have any photos?

I made a quick guide on cable management in the Tempest HERE

They are 19DB at the lowest possible RPM.
