Latest NZXT case is big on cooling, cable management


— 1:32 PM on November 17, 2009

Is that gigantic Corsair case we reviewed earlier this week a little too rich for your blood? If so, you may want to check out NZXT's new king-sized Tempest EVO enclosure, which has some of the same features but a much more affordable $99.99 suggested retail price.

The Tempest EVO is large enough to accommodate Extended ATX motherboards, and its motherboard tray has holes both for cable management and to let users access processor heatsink back plates. NZXT hasn't forgotten about cooling, either, bundling the case with four 120-mm fans (two at the front, one at the rear, and one on the side panel) as well as a pair of 140-mm fans, both of which sit under the top panel.

Otherwise, you'll find eight hard drive emplacements, holes for liquid-cooling tubes, and room for a "dual 120mm radiator at the top panel." NZXT placed the power supply at the bottom, although nothing separates it from the motherboard area. Also, the power and reset buttons and the front I/O ports (including external Serial ATA) lie in a recessed area on the top panel for easier access.

Check out the image gallery below for images of the Tempest EVO. NZXT says the case is "available now," so it may not be long before we see it arrive at Newegg and other major e-tailers.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
