NZXT S340 Elite Review

Up Close:  Interior

Like the exterior, the interior of the S340 Elite is also Matte Black.  That aside the first thing we notice is that NZXT have opted for the cover panel approach to hiding their cable management holes.  This is something we’re starting to see more and more often, but if we remember correctly it was NZXT that started it two years ago with the original S340.  We assume along with offering a different aesthetic to the case interior it may well help the company reduce production costs.

Angling the camera enables us to get a better view of the cable management cover and also of the front intake.  Although no fans are fitted, the Elite will take 2x120mm or 2x140mm fans.  As you might have guessed, there’s also room here for rads with either a 240mm or 280mm being on the cards.

NZXT have placed a quick release 2.5″ drive mount on the side of the false floor, in what is quite a nice “show off” position.

In addition to the side show off mount there are two further mounts on top of the false floor/PSU cover.

The rear of the case has 120mm fan with additional venting by virtue of the perforated PCI slot covers.  It’s worth noting that unlike the original S340, the Elite has screw in PCI covers, not the cheaper press out tab variety.

Turning our gaze upwards we can see that NZXT have also fitted a 120mm fan in the roof of the case.  As you can see it’s also possible to fit a 140mm unit in this position should you feel the need.
