    If it is water cooling you want then the Fractal Design Arc midi is a much better option for a similar price.

    Having said that, if it is air cooling you want then this is a nice case, a bit of sound proofing foam would seriously reduce the noise factor. Still has too many HD holders for me (2 is fine) but that is just me

    I like the front fan thing but NZXT cassis don't do it for me & the plastic feel of them is a no but on the other hand, friend that I know that have them say they are good for what they do & a price they can afford ! That you cant fault...

    Re: Reviews - NZXT Tempest 410 Elite

    I bought the NZXT Vulcan last year for a tidy sum (think it was about £40?). Reasoning was I wanted a compact machine for LANs with a nice carry handle, but could also house high end components and provided excellent airflow. I'm still very chuffed with it and think it's an excellent little mATX case. It can fit dual 5970, and 6x 120mm fans from memory (2 front, 2 top, 1 back, and 1 side). It also has a build in fan controller for 2 fans, and push button on/off orange glowing top fans which are supplied with the case. Excellent price really.

    The case is definitely a budget case - plastic front fascia, fairly thin steel etc. but the build quality was satisfactory given the price point, outstanding features and the high end components it can accomodate. I'd definitely consider NZXT in the the future.

    Re: Reviews - NZXT Tempest 410 Elite

    NZXT have some great ideas. I have the Phantom model which is an excellent case apart from a poor quality built in fan control system. Pity that NZXT have some difficulty in their design team about recognising the need to include at least a couple of USB3 slots in case production .
    Last I heard a few months ago they were still dithering about upgrading the Phantom to USB3 in spite of users suggesting this . One USB 3 here is just mean.
