NZXT S340 Elite Review

Up Close:  Interior rear of Motherboard

NZXT cases have always had well thought out and spacious rear of motherboard areas, with ample cable management space, and we have to say that Elite is no exception.  Not only are there more cable tie points than you can shake a...well a cable tie at, but there are also several built in plastic cable management clips situated along the main cable routing paths.

The PSU mount is towards the rear of the case and is accessed by removing a rear panel.   There's plenty of room in the PSU area for even the longest PSUs to find a home.

At the front of the case, under the false floor there's a small rack for the accommodation of 2x3.5" drives.  The floor above the rack does have a degree of ventilation so the old spinners aren't going to get too hot and bothered.

The metal front panel comes off with a firm tug, revealing the magnetically attached front intake filter.  Interestingly, it isn't actually necessary to remove the front panel to remove the filter as it can be detached and lifted out through the rectangular aperture anterior to the front I/O

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.
