Whenever we contemplate a new system build one of our main concerns is “which case is going to best serve my needs”.  Then we are faced with a good deal of other considerations while we search for the perfect chassis while staying within our budget.  We all have component specifications that we have to consider while finding that special case to fit our wants and needs.

So, what makes a case particularly suitable for a certain type of consumer?  Certainly there are the functional considerations: full, mid, or micro tower setup for starters. Will it be used as a home server?  Perhaps housing your workstation?  Will it be a Home Theater? What about Gaming? Then there are the aesthetic considerations: color, lighting, metal and plastic, flashy or conservative? And then we can’t forget quality of construction, what about cooling those heat producing components.  And last, but by no means least, is the price. With so many variables it’s no wonder there are hundreds of different cases available on the market to suit just about every possibility.

If you’re waiting for a new mid-tower PC chassis from NZXT for your next build, you may want to look at the Tempest EVO.   At first glance, the case looks quite striking with its all black interior/exterior, which is becoming quite a popular design spec for gaming cases.   

The NZXT Tempest EVO PC is the latest product in their Crafted Series, looking to combine functionality and value.  However, affordable and practical do not always go hand-in-hand, but this chassis looks to live up to such expectations with its features and design, and a promise to not be hard on the wallet.

Thanks go to NZXT for supplying the review sample.
