Introduction to the NZXT Tempest EVO

NZXT is owed another thanks.  Today they dropped on my doorstep the Tempest EVO.  This is a solid black mid tower that gives you a lot of room to grow.  I recently reviewed their Hades case and I make a few comparisons between the two.  Both cases are from their Crafted Series and are priced similarly, within $10 or so of each other.  I’m always excited to see new gear show up, especially cases.  I recently picked up a Zalman 10X Extreme cooler and I’ve had a tough time finding a case that will fit it, allowing me to close the side panel.  This one looks promising with the smaller lower set side panel fan.

NZXT’s take on the Hades

Announcing the Tempest EVO, a sleek, all black, steel mid tower gaming chassis. Building off of the original Tempest's award winning design, the EVO brings advanced cooling power, expandability, and cable management. The Tempest EVO maximizes airflow circulation with Dual 120mm intake, dual 140mm top exhaust, side 120mm, and a rear 120mm fan. NZXT even redesigned the fan blade design so they effectively deliver more air at lower noise levels. Additionally, the bottom mounted PSU provides better airflow and separation of heat from the CPU.

The Tempest EVO puts a premium on expandability with E-ATX support allowing for compatibility with higher end graphics cards, power supplies and server boards while the server-like HDD space holds up to 8 HDDs ensuring that enthusiasts can make significant upgrades to their system without having to replace the chassis. Installation and upgrades is a breeze with pre-drilled cable routing on the motherboard allowing for a cleaner look and improved airflow. The case also features added space behind the motherboard panel from a punched side panel design that allows for easy heat sink removal. Tempest EVO is well equipped for overclocking and water-cooling enthusiasts with predrilled water-cooling tube access and support for a dual 120mm radiator at the top panel.
