Milwaukee missed out on most of that storm system. We were predicted to be in the path and to see some of the tornado cells, but I guess mother nature had other plans. The storm shifted more to the west and we were only clipped. There was a nice bit of rain with and the sky lit up for a while. It was the kind of storming that I like. I am a big fan of Spring showers, especially when there is lightning.



Back when I was little, I used to want to be a storm chaser. I would watch everything I could on TV regarding tornadoes. They always fascinated me. It always interested me that something so powerful could manifest within seconds, topple a house, neighborhood, or town over, and vanish in the blink of an eye. I have actually experienced a tornado myself. However, that is a story for another review. NZXT has a storm of their own that has manifested in the case department.


The NZXT Tempest 410 Elite Mid Tower adds a bit of intrigue into the gaming realm. The Tempest 410 Elite has some unique features that set it apart from many of the other cases. It is an identical twin to its brother, the Tempest 410, except the Elite comes with a full sized window to show off all of the goodies inside. Comparatively, the Elite still retains the two touch powered 120mm intake fans. These fans remove easily to expose eight front loading 3.5" HDD bays. The top of the Elite houses a hidden tray that has enough room to fit extra thumb drives or cables. The backend of the top is removable and exposes an area that can house up to two 140mm fans or a dual radiator liquid cooling setup. Also included is a rear 120mm fan. The Elite features a completely tool free rail design for both the 3.5" and 5.25" bays. GPU support is up to 315mm when the top HDD bays aren't in use.
