NZXT S340 Elite Review

Introduction and Technical Specification

It's been a while since we took a good look at an NZXT case, so what better place to start than the new S340 Elite.  It's available in White, Black and Red, and the Matte Black version we have for review  And when I say black, I mean it's BLACK, or as Ford Prefect would put it, "I mean it’s so black! You can hardly even make out its shape. Light just falls into it".  Hitch-Hikers references aside, the Elite really is a stunning looking case, and it has a few tricks up it's sleeve to boot.  For the low down let's have a look at those all important Tech-Specs shall we.

Nice write up Gary, interesting direction NZXT are going though I'm slowly loosing my fondness for tempered glass panels now.. it was great when it was just InWin doing it, it was there "thing" but seeing 4 thumb screws on the side panel of every new case is getting rather boring.Quote

Hmmmm.. Had my eye on this case for a few weeks now, i like the styling, i like the cable management shroud and the front SSD mount really is a nice touch.. im finding myself torn between this and the Corsair Crystal 460X. But im edging towards the S340 more and more as time goes by, my only off put is the one fan mount on the top which hasn't a filter

If the price drops to around £65 i buy one Quote

The NZXT S340 Elite officially supports up to standard ATX boards 12 x 9.6 Inches, I wanted to know if it would be possible to unofficially fit the Asus X99 E-WS 10G, CEB motherboard which from what I've read have the same mounting holes as an ATX board but measures at 12 x 10.5 Inches.

Could anyone with experience with the case look into, and tell me if i could fit the CEB board and would problems I may face, Thanks. (:Quote

I don't see how this is worth $20 more than the regular version. I've also noticed that over time, the original S340 has actually gotten more expensive, to the point it's more expensive than a FD Define S, which imo is a better case. Which doesn't bode well for this one, being that much more expensive. Interior is neat and all, but not enough to warrant the price over other great cases.Quote

Like the case, but not the price. Also I am not really liking the two newer trends that seem to be HOT this year. Tempered glass, and RGB everything.
