    NZXT let loose a special variant of its popular Tempest mid-tower ATX case, the Tempest EVO Camo. The case has a white-grey-black (arctic) digital camouflage pattern printed on it for a military look, an aesthetic touch for the LAN-party animals. Like the standard Tempest EVO, it measures 211.5 x 521.5 x 562 mm, weighing 11.2 kg, making use of SECC steel. It has a perforated front with three 5.25" bays, two LED-lit 120 mm fan intakes. Interiors remain all-black, there are two internal 3.5" drive cages with three bays, each. A 120 mm rear exhaust fan, provision for two fans on top, and a fan on the side-panel, make for the rest of its active ventilation. It is expected to be priced at $150, a $40 premium over the base model.

    it looks good, but why the heck have they left all the wires dangling there on picture 2 and 4 ?
    you would have thought they would have tidied them up before doing pictures

    I don't like the actual case but the camo looks rather nice and they should do this to some more cases.

    It looks allright actually, my first impression was a wacky case with bits sticking out like a giant furball because of the small size and TPU's white background. However, at $150, I would rather go with HAF 932.

    I like it to be honest, looks like a snow camo on GI Joe.

    I think it's a cool idea! But they should have at least painted the front bay grills white or camo.

    Looks like crap. The camo is too fake and plain black 5.25" covers are ugly.

    My first thought was: did someone try to build a camo case out of legos?

    Just registered to say I really like the look of this case, nice features and the styling is pretty good, though at $150 I cant really justify the pricing when I bought my m59 for £55, if I could buy this for the same then we would have a winner, but for the price there are far better cases out there from the likes of coolermaster, antec etc :rolleyes:
