PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
The Tempest Evo is a mid-tower steel case with a ton of features like a blacked-out interior, smoked window and a whopping six big cooling fans included. There's also plenty of room inside the case for drives and graphics cards, and watercooling aficionados get the nod with tubing access and relatively easy radiator installation. Cable management features round out the extensive feature set and I'm anxious to see how NZXT implements all these design elements.
The sturdy carton has a striking graphic depicting a violent windstorm (tempest) personified. It also lists some of the features that the Tempest Evo brings to the table, and a complete list of specifications on each side.
NZXT wraps the Tempest Evo in a plastic bag that gets sandwiched between a pair of foam blocks to protect it during shipping, and this scheme seems to work well as the case arrived in pristine condition despite some obvious distress to the carton. NZXT also included on of their USB expansion modules in the box, but don't look for it to be included with the Evo that you get from your retailer. You can, however, look forward to a review of this nifty little gadget in the near future here at Tweaknews. Let's proceed to the pictorial section and see what the Tempest Evo looks like and what features it brings to the table.
