What would me my next case? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
NZXT Tempest Evo has huge stock airflow, better HDD capacity and cooling than CM690IIA. It comes with 6 fans included if fan budget is an issue.

Quoted for Truth. I thought my HAF has a good airflow until I saw one of the Ravens up close. Needless to say that would be my next case period.

Nice case, and stock fan setup is awesome.
Can i remove the bottom HDD cage?
And can you explain this image i found on NZXT site? Its a special edition of the Tempest Evo?

Yea you can remove or reposition the cages. Its a shame it doesn't have 8 sideways facing HDD sleds like Fractal R2/R3, but 2x 4HDD rail cages each with dedicated 120mm fans is very good capacity and cooling for a budget case.

Silverstone and Corsair are nice if you want to spend more.

That pic you found is the Vulcan, its a much smaller mATX case but it works well for the purpose. Tempest Evo is a full ATX case, bit of an oversized mid tower, like between a mid tower and a full tower. It has lots of airflow with many included fans, good clearance for long GPUs and can fit a watercooling setup pretty well.
