Arrrh, the front hurts my eyes. I prefer the sleek look of the Tempest.

tempest to the worl'
i dont get why none of the cases look as good as the tempest?
sure if seen a few practical NZXT cases but they always looked terrible.

I dont like these plasticy fronts i prefer nice elegant slopes and steel fronts. Steel mixed with plastic trims can be nice but to be honest full plastic fronts is not a good idea for heat or looks.

NZXT make quality cases no doubt they just need to get a few better designs out. Having flashy cases was cool back in 2003.

They need a top end case, a low end case, a mini tower and a full tower.

They already have the mid tower mid price NZXT Tempest cracked down.

They should do a simple full tower that looks nice with a flat steel front panel and be cheap.

Don't laugh but I kind of like it.

Though what I really want to see is how the insides look. Anyone have a shot of those?

It looking like something from Halo makes me hate it.
Not really. It's a nice looking case even if it does remind me of Halo...

...I love it. I want one. (Still don't like Halo)

ACK. CONFLICTED.

You pay more than 50 bucks for a case and that's what happens. You get a bunch of cool flashy crap you don't need, can't figure out how to operate, or you keep RMAing the case because it actually died or none of the crap ever worked. You killed a case. XD

Don't like the placement of the front ports, like mine on the right side.
I like my Apollo better, my 12cm fan is closer to my video card and keeps it nice and cool.:D
Looks almost like the older alienware cases.
