In terms of features the NZXT Tempest is mostly made out of SECC Steel with Aluminum used on the front door mesh. The weight of the case without a PSU is 11.2 KG or over 22 pounds, not a small weight for a Med-Tower case. The case can take Extended ATX, ATX, and micro-ATX standards. The size of the case is 211.5x521.5x562mm which puts it squarely into the Med-Tower ATX category.
