NZXT Tempest – Mid Tower Case Review


Pcwizkid’s review of the NZXT Tempest Mid Tower Case. When looking over this case it reminds me a lot of the Thermaltake m9 case. I love the new tool-less design of these cases and their cooling is incredible. The blue led’s are always a nice bonus but again the blue led’s seem to be a bit overdone these days.
