NZXT S340 Elite Review

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.
