5 Reasons to pick NZXT S340 Elite for your PC Build
1 Febuary 2017
Since the release of NZXT S340 Elite a few months ago, many PC builders have been hunting for this refined and elegant mid-tower case for their next custom PC build. If you ever wondered why the NZXT S340 Elite is so hot right now, see our Top 5 reasons below.
Below are the Top 5 reasons why you should consider the NZXT S340 Elite for a modern VR gaming PC:
1. Tempered Glass to show off your build
NZXT's S340 Elite upgrades from its predecessor the S340 by adding a full-size tempered glass window to showcase your rig. This combined with premium matte paint job gives your PC a satisfyingly unique finish.
2. Simplistic, modern and DIY friendly
The S340 Elite features a clean aesthetic and has one of the most hassle-free designs for DIY custom PC builders. It has:
- Excellent cable management: along with the cable management bar that splits the front intake from the rest of the case, the case also adds a new clamping system in the back of the case to hide all the ugly cables along the rear.
- Cool SSD mounts: the case adds mounting for 3x 2.5" SSDs on the PSU shroud - two on the top and one on the right front side of the shroud.
- Filtered air intake: The S340 Elite has 2 removable and washable dust filters - one fan filter up front and one for the PSU on the bottom of the chassis.
3. The VR experience
The S340 Elite is designed with Virtual Reality gaming in mind. It adds an HDMI output alongside the usual USB 3.0 and audio ports to the top panel. This convenient addition allows you to plug in your VR headset to the front of the case without having to mess around with cables on the back. To make things even easier, the S340 Elite also has a rear cut-out to route the HDMI cable straight into your graphics card.
4. The magnificent, magnetic puck
What makes the S340 Elite interesting is also about its magnetic puck which allows users to wind up VR and audio headset cables easily. The puck is splittable, so if you have an extra-length cable, you have more room to wrap it up.
5. Good bang for buck
The case offers a premium look without the exotic price tag.
