Great review and very sweet case. Only $169 at Newegg.
Tempest has Functionality. Centurion 590, RC-690 have Air Flow. too expensive for too little nobody needs air grade aluminum.
Nice looking case - I'm really diggin the brushed aluminum and metal plate look
a bit expensive, though . . .
Thats a good price for such a nicely built case.
Space for a duel rad in the front?
I learned more from this review (& photos) than the 2 others I've seen.
IMO, this case is exceptional for the money; even in US$. The frame work and drive cage are aluminum extrusions. I've never seen anything like that drive cage. This case has to be rigid as heck, plus it has welds! The semi-outrigger feet should provide some lateral stability.
OTOH, you have to pull the PSU to clean the filter; not a huge deal. The 2 upper fans don't have filters. No Firewire port. Closely spaced USB ports may be a problem. I love topside connector & button panels, but w/o a cover of some type, the electrical connectors will collect dust and grime.
Sadly, Hiper is nearly invisible in the USA. This case is *not available at either Newegg or TigerDirect. I've found one single US dealer who has the only the black.
(I'm very curious on the "gun metal' appearance.)
