Is that the one you just put for sale in your thread?
yes sir, you want it? (Hades)
No, just curious. Nice case. Those white fans are the ones that ship with the case?
again, yes sir has two build in fan controllers too, behind the door.
Nifty little case then I guess. Just noticed the two fan holes up top, possible mounting of a 120.2 rad up top?
yes and no. There is room for a dual 140 as it sits. the holes will allow for 120mm fans but the spacing is off for that radiator. Not that it couldnt be done, but you may need to be creative
Just finished writing mine, most likely a week or so until it airs
Your review? Looking forward to it
The spacing is the same as the Tempest EVO, I got my 140 rad to mount just by using four screws at one end of the rad. That thing aint going anywhere.
Sneeky, if you want a quick tip on how to get rid of shadows using Photoshop,
Image > Adjustments > Shadow/Highlight. Gets rid of those shadows and can brighten up anything that is too dark or lacking color.
Anyone know how to change the LED strips on the front panel of the NZXT Tempest? Mine died, might email NZXT see if they will ship me a replacement set.
Also anyone else noticed how easy it was to bend the top mesh, i bent mine just by accident but now they are even worse. Not that i use that case anymore its just sitting in its box.
Replacing the front leds is really easy and the led capsules themselves are quit cheap.
Here is the inside of your bezel (front panel)
As you can see there are little plastic tabs that hold the leds in place.
Remove the screw to access the led itself.
Then just pull out the old led, cut it off and re-solder on the new led.
*sorry about the semi crappy pics, I just took them a second ago...oh and yes thats cat hair ewww!
Hahaha thanks, that's very helpful, i need to find out what i need to buy now. I didn't know it was just a screw.
Any idea on the mesh panels on the top of the case? i tried to put heavy stuff in the middle of one of the mesh panels to see if it would straighten it using weight didnt really work though, its a bit better though.
EDIT: infact tomorrow i will just take some quick pics of the case, its a bit late to haul out the case out of the box
Yeah it takes a 3mm led size with I believe a 15-20 degree view angle and I forget what intensity it likes. Or msd. (Clear blue (for exp) leds look better the the colored ones)
I can't say I have ever had any problems with the top mesh, but Nzxt has a pretty good warranty support team and I think they would just send you new ones.
DannibusX post some pics of your Vulcan I am thinking about selling my V3 case (and other stuff) to get this case!
after I buy the 5600 from brandon of course
Dude, I completely forgot. I'll snap some pics tomorrow. It's got a 5870 in it right now, should I put my 5970 in it for a photo op?
Yes Please do!!!!!!
is this case specific, or do NZXT accessories count too?
At the end of the month I have something nice to show off from them Sorry lips/fingers need to be closed till then.
Yes, NZXT accessories are accepted I will add that detail to the op later.
hmmm now you got me all curious of what it is.....
I didn't break out the 5970 for the photos, sorry
NZXT Vulcan mATX Case

Forgive me for using the stock cooler, I have an aftermarket, but I was too lazy to put it in ATM.
I'm still working on the cable management, I might spring for a modular PSU sometime soon.
Nice pics and specs Thank you!
I have two questions:
When you remove the handle do the holes show or do you get caps/plugs?
With this case being so open wth the mesh and all, is it pretty loud?
holes with no handle, no caps
I didnt think so before I shipped it off to him
that Vulcan case looks like it'l do a better job at collecting dust then a dyson
Dust is never a problem for me because I buy my aircans in bulk at Costco 20pk anyone?
Yeah I think I might get this case just for kicks! I've always wanted to build a little LAN case. I just wish Nzxt made this one aluminum instead of heavy ass steel.
Honestly, empty it isnt that heavy for an all steel chassis.
It's not heavy at all dude. I didn't put the handle on, and there's 4 holes in the top of the case, but they're not all that noticeable unless you're incredibly anal about such things.
I haven't had the fans cranked all the way up and there's only 2 in it ATM, but I don't notice the noise all that much.
