So quieter, more airflow, and a sleeker look. More slots, more expandability for optical drives, HDDs, and water cooling. It’s no wonder this is known as the Enthusiast’s Case. There’s enough room in there to shove a bunch of...

Today's victim is the NZXT Tempest Evo, and from what we've seen in the past, NZXT has its finger on the pulse of what the gaming community wants. As the size of components increases, we've all been chanting "bigger is better," but can their...

I want to thank NZXT for sending out the Tempest EVO for a test drive. Current prices run at $109 with $19.99 for shipping making the Tempest a bit more expensive than the Hades. That’s ok though. This case makes up for it with its...
