NZXT Tempest 410 Elite Mid Tower Case Review

The NZXT Tempest 410 Elite certainly holds up to the Tempest name. It has all of the tool-free installations you can think of, a plentitude of airflow options and is just an overall good-looking case.  The case runs for $89.99 at my favorite online retailer, with the standard Tempest 410 being just $10 cheaper. Personally, I think the extra $10 is worth the price if you’re looking for more fans and a side panel window.

There are a lot of features in the Tempest 410 Elite that you wouldn’t find in other cases with a similar price point. There’s really not a whole lot to say negative about this case, other than the placement of the hard drives, which are faced internally, rather than towards the side. However if you install your drives properly, assuming you don’t fill up all 8 slots, you shouldn’t have too much of a problem.

This case has a lot to offer at a reasonable price. This isn’t something new for NZXT, but I am glad to see they are sticking to creating quality cases at an affordable price. Overall ThinkComputers would like to award the NZXT Tempest 410 Elite with a 9 out of 10 score.
