NZXT S340 Elite Review


NZXT S340 Elite Review


What?  The accessories are getting a whole page to themselves???  Must mean there's something good to be had.  Well aside from the usual screws, which are nicely separated into distinct bags,you also get a flat plugged SATA power extender to make connecting the front Show off SSD a damn site easier.  You also get no less than ten cable ties as opposed to most manufacturers four or five.

The instructions are decent but come on a single fold out table cloth of a sheet, which can make navigating around them a little confusing, not that we read them of course.

The main item of interest though is this very tactile and touchy feely rubber puck.  The rubber puck is also extremely magnetic thanks to an intergrated magnetic plate which enables it to adhere firmly to any ferrous metal, so basically anything that contains sufficient iron Nickel or Cobalt, not that you get too much Cobalt knocking around the place.

The puck is actually designed to break into two parts if required, but what the hell is thing thing actually used for?

Well if you hadn't already guessed it's a VR or audio headset mount.  Here we've shown it attached to the front of the case, but you could just as easily attach it to the side, or the beer fridge you have in your gaming room.  What do you mean you don't have a beer fridge in their gaming room.

By splitting the puck in two you can easily take care of even quite long lengths of cables on accessories, and being rubberised all over, there's no fear that it will leave unsightly marks or scratches on your case (or fridge).

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.
