It seems that NZXT has a few companies like Antec and Thermaltake in its sights. For the past year or two we have seen some exciting cases coming from their stable. Some of the ones that we really liked were the Adamas with its clean subtle look. The Lexa which was different from anything else on the market and we can’t forget about the Rogue, one of the best looking Cube cases on the market. If you’re one that pays attention to what is new in this industry you may have seen the press release of the Khaos. The Khaos is a high case that is in the class of Lian Li and will set you back quite a few pennies.
We don’t have the Khaos on the review table for you today but we do have another good looking case from NZXT, the Tempest. NZXT has this case labled as the Airflow King. At first sight you can see this case may be able to live up to that slogan and if you can’t see the reason for this slogan then let me spell it out for you. This case can hold up to six 120mm cooling fans and the fans are placed in areas where they would blow over the motherboard, video card and hard drives.
NZXT praise the Tempest
NZXT, a company built on realizing the dreams of gamers worldwide, is proud to announce the NZXT Tempest.

Tempest maximizes expandability with E-ATX support allowing for more compatibility with high end components including larger graphics cards. Cable routing is pre-drilled so users can hide cables behind the motherboard tray, allowing for a cleaner appearance and improved airflow. Tempest also features server-like HDD space by using dual 120mm fans to cool cages holding up to 8 HDDs allowing for large capacity systems while maintaining cool temperatures.
