Even if your not keeping the Tempest you can ask NZXT in an email on their site for a replacement or you can buy a replacement which i know is possible as all it is held in by is a screw, t77snapshot told me!
i would but last year one of my fans broke and thy sent me a new one. but to be real i almost like it now it's not as bright

I know Nzxt owes you new led's, but they are so cheap you can just buy them yourself. Do you have a Radioshack or Fry's by your house? I ordered mine online here.:)

This is my Evo Tempest, called Spectrus. I hope you enjoy as I am now coming to the club.
I did not make major changes, just took that and put one side acrylic tinted 3mm, added cold cathods laptrom white and finish them.

Super clean build man! I love it:D The white on black theme looks really good. Did you remove or replace the led's (stripes) on the front bezel or are they just not showing up in the shots?

I still does not move the LEDs on the front, I think I'll leave it disconnected after changing the led hdd led to white. The theme of white on black is very good, live is more beautiful still

Yeah not having the striped leds kinda gives it a more stealthy look which I haven't seen before. Or you could changes those stock blue ones to white;)

I'm kinda sick of blue, 90% of cases are blue or have blue, I prefer only white with black

In the UK, we have Maplin but they charge a premium.

Nice! thanks for sharing!

I like the bright red with a hint of blue in the center.:) I know the Lexa Black doesn't provide many options for cable management so you worked well with what you had. Damn that card looks huge in that case...and barely fit too.:p

EDIT: I just noticed that 80mm fan on the bottom, is there an intake hole cut out at the base? or did you just mount a fan there?

Tempest update:)

Trying something new here, removed one of my GTX285's to reduce on the summers heat in my room and install a X-fi Fatal1ty sound card. I also switched my push/pull setup on the H50 to an intake instead of exhaust.

crappy cell phone pics:p

My Tempest went green!

I added parts from a Cooler Master Aquagate Max to my old TT loop, now I have two pumps, two dual rads and two reservoirs.

Here's what it looks like, nothing too fancy on the inside, but the outside is no longer the overused blue LEDs:


Here's a flash-pic of the inside:


Both pumps are on the bottom, the HDD is below the Aquagate front panel assembly, the Aquagate rad is above said assembly in the top 5.25 slots and the TT rad is at the top of the case.

I got my replacement parts today.
They asked me for an address but i didnt get a confirmation email or anything they just arrived out of the blue! Going to fit them some other time its very late may take a pic or two.

Its the front LEDs and the top mesh panel.

Good to at least get the tempest fixed even if im not using it right now.
