Inside the S340 Elite Continued

Below the motherboard tray, there is a long PSU cover that extends from the front to the back. In and on it, we find the three openings for wiring, and the pair of SSD trays mounted to the top of it. We would have preferred to see grommets in this design, but once everything is together, it is all black, and the holes virtually disappear.

Hanging on the back of the S340 Elite, we see the second 120mm FN V2 fan. This fan also has a 3-pin power connection, but just like the fan in the top, is pre-wired and is also connected to that same Molex adapter for power.

Behind the motherboard tray, we are drawn first to the pair of white boxes tucked into the bottom of the S340 Elite, which contains the hardware and goodies. We also see that NZXT has added wire clips to the back this time. Two of them are found behind the wire cover, which bundles all wiring together, while another pair separates the wires into tracks to keep things clean and tidy looking back here.

If you have a need for mass storage, at the front of the S340 Elite, there is a cage which allows for a pair of 3.5" drives to be screwed into place. Optionally, you can stuff a third 3.5" drive in under these bays, and use the holes on the floor for mounting it.

The rest of the lower section is used to house the PSU and its wiring. There are raised steel rails to allow the PSU to be supported, the vents in the floor allow for short and long PSU fan placements, and after removing the bracket on the back, the PSU can be slid in here.

NZXT was sure to offer all of the chassis wiring in black sleeved cabling. At the top, we can see the Molex plug for the fan power adapter, and along the bottom, we see the native USB 3.0 connection, the HD Audio, and USB 2.0 connections, and the HDMI and front panel switch and LED connections on the right.
