Earlier this year we brought you news of the new NZXT Source 340 (S340), the new budget friendly mid-tower from one of the industries leading chassis manufacturers. Now we’re very happy to bring you the full review of the latest chassis from NZXT. The S340 is the latest edition to the Source range, and there have been some pretty big changes to the general design. Gone are the sweeping curves and large sections of mesh ventilation. Now we have bold flat panels and a very minimalist look that has more in common with the H440 than it does with previous entries to the Source series.
Priced at just under 70 EUR, the S340 does have a focus on being more affordable. However, NZXT has really pulled out all the stops to pack this chassis full of unique features, high quality components and more to make it incredible value for money. The chassis comes fitted with dust filters, a large side panel window, high-quality fans, a PSU shroud and more.
The S340 comes in a choice of black and white finishes. There’s support for 120mm and 140mm fans; although two 120mm fans come pre-installed. There’s easily room for high-end components; the chassis will handle 334-364mm long graphics cards, 161mm tall CPU cooler, mini-ITX to ATX motherboards and more.
While I normally mention packaging here, this S340 was shipped to me directly from the factory; it came in a plain brown box that is of little interest to consumers.
