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 that 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 are 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 heatsink removal. Tempest EVO is well equipped for overclocking and watercooling enthusiasts with pre-drilled watercooling tube access and support for a dual 120mm radiator at the top panel.

2 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: It does look snazzy.
Comes with all the fans

Cons: PCI slots were made too thin and short on my case.
PCI slots don't line up with my motherboard.
The HDD tool less system is weak and flimsy.
The HDD cages are extremely difficult to get out.
Very little cable management space for someone that does not have a modular PSU.

Other Thoughts: This case was great until I bought PCI cards for my computer, now nothing fits and I'm not happy. Because of this product, I'm no longer buying nzxt products.

3 out of 5 eggsGood not great

Pros: Lots of room, great cooling

Cons: Power button mount stinks. If you turn the power off using the button you have to press it very lightly or it will slide out of the mount rendering everything dead. This is an unacceptable fatal flaw of the case.

Other Thoughts: I have to leave the computer on for fear of having to unplug everything, take it out of my desk, take off the side panel and reseat the power switch. NZXT make the mount a little bit stronger!

5 out of 5 eggsBest case I've ever had

Pros: This case is absolutly amazing. I have the older version which has the silver interior instead of black, and it has been in use for close to 4 years now, and still looks like brand new. It has seen many builds and has stood the test of time. Even the top fans that people have issues with are still running like new. Cable management is easy and has enough space to fit my two GTX 295's with room to spare.

Cons: None for me, would buy again.

Other Thoughts: May buy another just to have the black interior, as I constantly look at my tower. Awesome case for the money.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case but Fans Broke

Pros: The case is large, and has room for everything I have put in to it. Front panel USB ports make charging my phone and other devices very easy.

Cons: Perhaps it is only because I have used this case for so long, but the fans are giving me issues. Both fans on the top of the case do not work properly. One of them is completely stuck and will not spin at all, and the other is very loose and rattles the case when the fan speed increases due to using the processor more.

Other Thoughts: I have used this case for over 2 years now, and basically have been buying new computer components and putting them in this case. This is the first case I have actually used longer than 8 months, and it has survived a move packed in a box halfway across the world by moving companies who don't care about your stuff.

The only reason I took one egg from this case is because of the fan issues I'm having, but again I have to say it may be because I've had this case for over 2 years now and it is the longest I have ever used a case for.

2 out of 5 eggsPower button is cheaply made

Pros: Nice design on the tower. Lots of fans, good cooling properties. Easy to hide cables for a clean look. Had the case for two years now and none of the fans have burnt out.

Cons: The power button is held in by two little plastic tabs that break easily. Mine broke in about 3 months. I shut down my CPU every night to save on the electric bill but if you don't then I wouldn't really worry about it. Reset button is housed the same but has not broke yet.

Other Thoughts: I would not buy another NZXT due to the power button breaking on this one.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Lots of room for cable management, vents, and so on. Sturdy for the most part and honestly feels like a good case.

Cons: The PSU I ordered mainly for a new graphics card I was getting doesn't seem compatible with the case fans. Curious if someone knew what PSU's properly work with this case and require which plugins.

Other Thoughts: Great case, just do your research ahead of time. :P

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great case with tons of room and great airflow.

Cons: Hard drive cage not really secured.
Decent sized space for wire management, but could use more.

Other Thoughts: I've had this case for almost two years and I have to say I love it. It's massive, which is perfect for me since I stuck a ton of stuff in there. I replaced all the fans to make it completely quiet and took off all the lights. I have almost a dozen fans in there (6 case, 1 PSU, 1 CPU, 3 GPU), and I can barely hear it with the case doors closed. It was decently priced and is made of high quality material. And I'm really happy with my purchase.

The only complaint I have is that the hard drive cage is supported by a single screw, or none not at all. For the first three or four months, there was a buzzing in my case and I couldn't isolate it. It turns out it was the HDD cage vibrating while spinning up. I eventually figured it out, but had to replace two 2tb drives because the rattling caused the them to develop clicking. It shouldn't be a problem with ssds or smaller/lighter drives, but with 4x2tb drives per cage, the single screw gave out to the weight of the drives.

Manufacturer Response:

First of all, We want to thank you for being a customer of NZXT.

If you would like to have replacement parts for your build. Please submit a service ticket at our support center http://www.nzxt.com/support or contact us directly at 626.228.1150 to better serve you. We appreciate your feedback and will continue to strive to make our products better.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to let us know how you feel. We appreciate your business and truly want to make your experience as enjoyable as possible.

3 out of 5 eggsIts Ok

Pros: Lots of space, Lots of Fans. Has eight HDD spots

Cons: Front panel is made out of plastic, so if you remove it too much the pegs that hold it on break off. The front LED's didn't even bother turning on, my case came with them burnt out. Behind the motherboard tray there isn't that much space.

Other Thoughts: I dont think that this case is worth as much as it costs (bought mine for $95). If you expect this case to go over and above, you will be dissapointed. I expect to replace it within a couple months if it keeps going downhill.

Manufacturer Response:

First of all, We want to thank you for being a customer of NZXT.

We also want to apologize for the defective Tempest Evo Case. Please contact us directly at 626.228.1150 so our service Rep. can replace all defective parts for you. We appreciate your feedback and will continue to strive to make our products better.
