NZXT Tempest 210
We’ve noticed a distinct shift in the cases being produced by NZXT over the last year or so. For quite awhile, NZXT was known for producing budget cases that often came with very garish designs. Rather stereotypical "gamer" cases, as it were. But the last 18 months have seen quite a change, with NZXT releasing cases that feature more subtle designs, better features, improved quality, and all this while still maintaining competitive prices. We have to admit, we love the "new" NZXT.
In keeping with their budget-oriented heritage, NZXT has the Tempest 210 mid-tower chassis, a more lightweight version of what we saw in the Tempest 410 Elite. Looking to maintain some similar aesthetics and functionality, the Tempest 210 is a more affordable alternative, as NZXT looks to continue the successful ways in this new direction.
In truth, the Tempest 210 is looking to grab the budget-minded gaming audience. It looks full of potential on paper with plenty of useful features, but how does it work on the bench? Let’s find out.
NZXT was established in 2004 with the objective of designing unique products catered for hardware enthusiasts and gamers. NZXT has won numerous awards from media and publications from across the globe with a product line spanning from gaming chassis, power, and gaming input devices. Formed by gamers, NZXT continues to expand into new horizons and push the envelope further with each product unveiling.
