NZXT has updated its Crafted series lineup of PC cases, with a new Tempest EVO case. Just as it was the case with Beta EvO, the new Tempest is a logical step in evolution. NZXT decided to fix all the glitches that the previous Tempest had and to introduce some of the latest features that can be found on new NZXT cases.
The new Tempest EVO measures 211.5x521.5x562 mm and feature a combination of steel and plastic, so it weighs 11.2kg. The case has room for three 5.25-inch external devices or six if you decide to remove one HDD cage. It has a top mounted audio, USB and eSATA ports and features pre-drilled holes for water-cooling as well as pre-drilled hole on the motherboard tray for better cable and cooler backplate mounting.
The interior is also painted in black which is a nice touch, and when it comes to airflow, NZXT didn't skimp on that part as well. The Tempest EVO features a total of six fans, two 120mm blue LED in the front, one 120mm on the side panel, one 120 at the back, and dual 140mm fans on the top of the case.
The new Tempest EVO is already shipping at a recommended price tag of US $99.99.
