NZXT added two mid-tower case offerings to its Tempest series today that feature custom solutions for dual-radiator watercooling systems and dual "touch-powered" 120mm front fans with removable filters. The Tempest 410 and Tempest 410 Elite are available for $79.99 and $89.99. Today, we are kicking the tires on the Tempest 410 Elite to ensure enthusiasts and overclockers get the most bang for their buck for their next mid-tower case upgrade.

Both Tempest 410 and Tempest 410 Elite cases incorporate a honeycomb mesh design to the front, top, and back panels and advanced cable management systems for concealing loose wires and power cords. The Tempest 410 Elite ups the ante with an acrylic side panel to see all the hardware inside the chassis.

Available in both black and white, with a switchable DPI of 400, 800 &1600 a USB polling rate of up to 1000Hz, tracking speed of 30 in/sec and acceleration up to 20G, the NZXT Avatar S has all the bells and whistles you want from a 5 button gaming mouse. The software suite is fairly minimalist compared to some but with 5 distinct save-able profiles, it covers all of the basics you need to get the most from your gaming sessions. eTeknix also liked it's size as the mouse is comfortable even for those with large hands.
"If we asked you to name a target category for NZXT products, peripherals would probably be the last section on your list. Recent diversion into new markets by NZXT has changed things though. They are very quickly becoming a diverse brand looking to match their newer attempts in other product categories with the amazing name they have built themselves mainly through their cases. Today we have one of their latest releases, a mouse, the NZXT Avatar S to be precise."

The NZXT bears a resemblance to the new Antec 280 that Ryan saw at Computex, with a very clean exterior and an almost unmarked front panel. At 20.5" x 8.5" x 18.5" it is a similar size as well, though the hot swappable fans are rather unique. Power and peripheral plugs have been moved to the top of the case to keep the hot swappable SATA dock and 140mm fan company. The Tech Report felt that NZXT hit the nail on the head with this case, for ~$100 you get every penny worth; if you are looking for more exceptional features you need to be shopping for a more expensive case.
"The NZXT H2 mid-tower case combines good looks, spacious internals, and attention to acoustic detail. Does it represent a solid value for computer enthusiasts? We go hands-on to find out."
