Inside the S340 Elite

By removing the bezel, we can see that air is taken in at the top and bottom of the panel, and once behind the bezel, there is a large filter in place to keep the inside clean. Without wiring to get in the way, a gentle bull on the bezel will allow access to the magnetic filter for cleaning or fan mounting.

There is one change we can see in this image from the original design, but what is not lost is the vast openness of the interior. There is plenty of room inside to install of what you want to while hiding many components and keeping wiring out of view.

Behind the dust filter in the front, is steel which is cut out to support fans. While no fans are installed here from NZXT, the option for 120mm or 140mm fans is there, as well as the ability to use AIOs and thin radiators if going the route of custom cooling.

In the original S340, this optional location for an SSD is not found. In the Elite, it has been added onto the PSU cover, and an additional hole is added near the front to allow the wiring to pass through. This way your SSD is in full view through the tempered glass panel.

The top of the chassis delivers a single 120mm fan, an NZXT FN V2 fan to be exact. This fan terminates in a 3-pin plug for connectivity, but is pre-wired and is also connected to a Molex adapter for power right from NZXT.

The motherboard tray will accommodate a Mini-ITX, Micro-ATX, or ATX motherboard, with the standoff locations clearly marked. There is a large CPU cooler access hole a few wiring holes, a large cover to the right for the motherboards main wiring, and plenty of tie points to make certain that everything is tended to.
