Join today and show off your rig, also discuss Tempest related topics such as modding, news, buyer reviews, build issues and more! If you are one of the many users that takes pride in their Nzxt Tempest and would like to join the club please send me a pm followed with your a description of your build and pics here in the club.




So right now, you might be asking yourself...

What does the Tempest offer me as an overclocker? Well, here are some of the strongest features on this case-

Dual Radiator Ready: The NZXT Tempest is pre-drilled for mounting a dual 120mm radiator at the top of the chassis, currently compatible and tested with Swiftech MCR220, Asetek Dual radiator solution, and Thermaltake TMG2.
Airflow King: Dual 120mm intake, Dual 140mm Exhaust with an additional side 120mm fan and rear 120mm fan all included.
Maximize Expandability: E-ATX support allows more compatibility with high end components including large graphics cards
Easier accessibility & cable management: Cable routing is pre-drilled on the motherboard so users can hide cables behind the motherboard tray, allowing more a cleaning look and better airflow. Power, E-SATA, USB and Reset buttons are mounted at the top to give better accessibility.
Bottom mounted PSU: PSU mounting at the bottom allows for more security and separation of heat from the CPU
Server-like HDD space: Dual 120mm fans cool cages that hold up to 8 HDDs allowing for large capacity systems while maintaining cool temperatures

Here is my tempest. Its painted all black and has new fans, grills, cm holes ect.

Very nice Tempest! I love what you have done.. it's like mine (but I didn't paint my interior yet) except red. The black paint and the lines of the case reminded me of a stealth fighter, and your cable management is superb.

Stuck between this or a 1200.. I just don't like the square-ish design of the 1200.. this case is really sleek.

friendly bump for epic cases..

Just a suggestion, your case looks amazing as it stands.
I'm actually thinking about painting it a gloss white. With some orange accents maybe. Or I could just get it powder-coated black... still bouncing things around. Thanks for suggestions though.

Yeah it counts, you are contributing ideas! I also think you should strongly consider it for a next build.

This case was my first ever case for my first ever build. Liked it at first however I did encounter some problems. It was woobly and noise from vibration drived me mad. The good thing it is roomy and comes with lots of fans. To me it looks cheap and the build quality was not superb.

It is a good case if you are modder properly but I am not. Also the airflow on the stock fans was disappointing. Even my scout cooled my cpu better went down 8'c first now it came back up 3'c.

If it was all black and less plastic it would be great.

I am sorry to hear that your experience with the Tempest was less than satisfactory.
