Conclusion:

While the NZXT Tempest 410 Elite isn't exactly the greatest performer, it does have many things going for it. This case packs a mind numbing amount of features, especially considering its price point. So yeah, you're probably wondering what this case retails for. The Tempest 410 runs around a cool $79 while its Elite counterpart is only $89. For under $100, they did manage to pack quite a bit into it. But, it's a given that some things are lacking, like the level of performance out of the box. It's also a mystery as to why there is just a single USB 3.0 port offered with this case, as they could have cut costs elsewhere and the header for a single USB 3.0 is exactly the same for dual 3.0 ports. It also suffers from poor hard disk drive placement and lacks any sort of side panel ventilation. While it does have its short comings, it makes up for it with offerings like a storage compartment on the top and a few tool-less solutions here and there. It also has a nice all black look inside and out so its pretty consistent throughout. The easy to remove fan design makes it a breeze when you need to take them out to clean out the dust filters and its quite nice that the case is able to take on up to eight internal hard disk drives. So if your looking for a rather loaded budget case perhaps the NZXT Tempest 410 Elite tickles your fancy.

 

Pros:

  • USB 3.0
  • Black inside and out
  • Cost effective
  • Eight internal HDDs
  • Storage compartment
  • Tool-less solutions

 

Cons:

  • Could use better hard disk drive placement for improved airflow
  • No side panel ventilation
