    Default NZXT Tempest or Lexa?

    I'm planning to get an i7 920 and overclock it to around 3.2 Ghz, some safe speed.

    The Tempest has 4X120 and 2X140 fans and is slightly more expensive, but no display.
    The Lexa has 3X120 and 1X80, but it has a display for temperatures.
    Which is worth it for overclocking slightly?

    The Tempest, no question. The temperature display on the Lexa is far more gimmick than useful. If you're overclocking, you will use programs that will monitor the exact temperatures of your individual components, not a case display that will show the ambient temps inside your case. Don't bother.

    The Tempest may cost a bit more, but it's a much better case. Better airflow, etc.
