NZXT Tempest 210 Case ReviewBluePanda - September 20, 2011

Overall the NZXT Tempest 210 really fits a tight budget build with a great price and simple appearance. It is a perfect for a build for a friend, co-worker, or family member who probably won’t require working much inside the case, nor care too much what it looks like inside. I’m not saying this couldn’t be a perfect case for you either – it is designed as a gaming case with a slight resemblance to the Cooler Master HAF 932 full-tower case; it’s just a smaller case which tends to be difficult to work with. However, if you are ready to settle in with a consistent build, one you don’t plan on changing out parts every month this is a perfect case!
To be honest, for the price this case is pretty awesome. Once you get your hardware situated it runs like a champ. I can’t even imagine putting a couple more fans in just to see how crazy the temperatures can be. This case was clearly designed well in the airflow category; it’s just unreal how the temperatures compare to more expensive cases. In the end, most cases in this price range aren’t something you would even want to give to an enemy – this case really is of good quality at a lower cost. This might be the NZXT case for you or a friend -- the NZXT Tempest 210, it’s ready to handle all the heat.
- Cost efficient – very cheap case
- Sleek appearance
- Potential for a ton of fans
- Great air flow
- Great for a build to not be messed with
- VERY small case (this could be a pro for some)
- Bay clips feel cheap, but can be replaced with screws
- Old school side panels difficult to put on
