NZXT Tempest


Box n’ Bundle

The Tempest is sent in a huge cardboard box with the usual protective padding. One thing that you do notice however is the photo of the Tempest in all its beauty; while box art doesn’t always give an accurate representation of the product inside, fingers crossed that’s no the “case” here.

Unfortunately this initial good impressions was tarnished slightly when I attempted to pick the box up using the “handy” handle the flaps holding it in place ripped and fell apart.

The handle itself was also unable to hold the weight of the case and broke.

The box was held together with large stables, which can hinder the removal of cases as the polystyrene gets caught and it becomes a two man job – one pulling the case and the other the box.

The back of the box is a pretty similar story as well, the usual product features and more photos of the case.

Another thing about the packaging is that it clearly wasn’t designed to be transported; and definitely wasn’t designed with the small size of most shop shelves in mind as they have hardly conserved on the cardboard.
