    Cool NZXT tempest

    I have read all the reviews and they are all good, a few niggles but what case doesnt have that??

    NZXT. Products.

    Im most likely going to buy one as it will fit my graphic cards/hard drives and water cooling all inside where my presant case cant cope with it all.

    Has anyone actually had hands on with one ?

    I think CustomPC mag said it had poor build quality, average cooling and was impossible to wire in a neat and tidy way.

    I've never used one, but friends have they look great on paper, but terrible to live with. Just like my thermaltake.

    Antec 900(or 1200 if you want REALLY big) is the king of the big cases at the mo and is very good. I'd take a good hard look at one if it was my money.

    Re: NZXT tempest

    In the price range of 40-70 quid, the Coolermaster CM-690 has it at the lower end, on Scan at around 44 quid usually on Today Only, slightly higher on the price tag, definitely the Antec 900, great case.

    Both cases are a definite winner but everyone has their preference, some think the 900 is vulgar, personally can't fault it apart from no cable management which the CM690 does have supposedly.

    used both CM690 and Antec 900, the only good thing about the Antec 900 is the number of fans provided with the case and the side window

    CM690 simply offers a whole lot more for the money.

    Re: NZXT tempest

    I'm looking to buy one of these. From what I've read it's a good case...

    If I didn't love my current case so much ( CM Black Widow ) I'd be looking at the Silverstone Kublai - retails around £70.
