NZXT Tempest 410 Elite
Visually speaking, the NZXT Tempest 410 Elite has a rugged look and feel with its black finish and honeycomb surface. It’s certainly not the epitome of sleek minimalism, so you’ll need to decide if that suits your preferences or not.
The build quality of this chassis is pretty remarkable for the price point, as everything was more than I expected. The cooling solutions NZXT has incorporated into the Tempest 410 Elite has exceeded my expectations, by including the two modular 120mm intake fans at the front, and options for six fans in total.
And for the overclockers and enthusiasts in the crowd, a spot at the top for a 240mm radiator for optimal cooling of your CPU and GPU says it all. Overall I feel NZXT has exceeded our expectations in this regard. Factor in the toolless options, eight drive bays (for 2.5" and 3.5"), , and the addition of USB 3.0 to the front I/O panel, we think the overall feature package here is very generous and a welcomed surprise.
At a price of $90, the Tempest 410 Elite is a solid case and a great value. The versatility here is also a solid consideration. While it can’t really match some of the elite on the market, it’s nowhere near the price either, particularly for a mid-tower. If you want a full-featured and versatile case that’s avaialble at a great price, seriously consider the NZXT Tempest 410 Elite.
