NZXT Tempest Case Review :: Conclusion

NZXT calls their Tempest case the Airflow King and I would agree with that. With two front 120mm fans, a 120mm fan on the rear, a 120mm fan on the side panel and two top 140mm fans, this case has more cooling fans and airflow than any other Med-Tower case I've ever seen. In terms of aesthetics, the geometric shapes of the case gives it a slightly modern look that many can appreciate if you want something different than the traditional rectangular box without totally modding the case. Some would question the availability of only three 5.25 drive bays by default. I would say that most people don't use more than two DVD or Blu Ray drives in their case and the ability to use 8 HDDs as an option, makes this tradeoff worthwhile.
