The most memorable case of the past year? That honor definitely goes tothe Level 10 chassis from Thermaltake. But considering the super highprice point, it's not exactly a case that most average consumers cantouch. It's also huge, so that's yet another reason to take it in fromafar. But we have to admit: the latest enclosure from NZXT is prettyhigh up on the "weird, but in a good way" list. If you've been lookingfor a new case to fit in your outdoor bungalow or mountain cabin, thismight just be the one.



The new Tempest EVO Camo is probably the most otherworldly case that wecan recall seeing in awhile. It's half-camo, half-retro. We neverreally thought a camo case could be created with style or class, butsomehow this company has managed to pull it off. It's obviously aspecial edition case that will only be produced in limited quantities,but you know, there's probably not a huge, vast market for something asoff-the-wall as this.

It's built from plastic and steel, and its an ATX Mid-Tower case thatships without a power supply. It can handle E-ATX, ATX, Micro-ATX andBaby AT motherboards, and it is equipped with three external 5.25"drive bays, 8 internal 3.5" drive bays, 7 expansion slots, a number offans and a weight of just under 25lbs. It comes with a 1-year warranty(though we wouldn't count on it being valid if you really take it tothe battlefield) and can be purchased today from Newegg at $149.99(plus a whopping $18.99 in shipping).

I think they call this pain scheme "Digital-Camo" if memory serves me correct. Not a bad looking case but they should have gone full Army colors.

I like the camo on the case, makes it look futuristic.

I don't like this case that well. May be because of its "Pixelated" paint scheme. could have looked a million dollars had the colors blended more seamlessly. Now it looks like a small camo pic blown too much and stuck onto it.

How does the case cool what's inside of it?

Inside pictures are at this link: http://bit.ly/9a7FQz

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

What do you mean how does it cool what's inside?  It's a standard configuration...
