Introduction

Sequels in movies are nearly to a fault notoriously worse than the original. Anything with a "2", "II" or "Part Duex" after it is more than likely twice as bad as the first one, or at best simply a rehash of the same story just with a new name. There are exceptions of course, but for the most part it seems common practice to try and capitalize on any success by simply repeating oneself. Polish it up, throw a new wrapper on it, slap on a big #2 sticker and sell a million more. I can think of lots of products that fit this bill as well. Just because they made a second version doesn't necessarily mean they made it better. Often times some of the best features get taken out, while all new problems are introduced.


With that in mind, today we take a look at the "new and improved" Tempest EVO mid-tower computer case from NZXT. More than a year ago our Frank Stroupe took a close look at the original NZXT Tempest, and gave it our OCIA.net Seal of Approval. NZXT even put our logo on the Tempest EVO box. Among the list of laudations were its good looks, roomy interior, massive amount of airflow yet quiet operation and reasonable price. Externally the Tempest EVO doesn't look much different, it shares the same appearance, dimensions and weight as the Tempest. It also offers the same number of drive bays, cooling fans and expansion slots. So what, if anything, did NZXT actually do to the Tempest to warrant giving it a suffix? Let's have a look.
