NZXT S340 Mid-Tower Chassis

VIEW GALLERY - 27 IMAGES

The front of the S340 is a panel of steel that has been painted with very shiny black paint. There is the NZXT name at the bottom, but it is hard to make out at this angle. We can also see that the chassis is pretty high off the table top.

At the top of the chassis, we find a gap at the front bezel for air to pass through, and you can also access the magnetic dust cover there. Just behind that is the I/O panel, and further back, you will find the opening of mesh where the 140mm fan exhausts this chassis.

The front I/O panel is simple, and clean. Beginning at the left, there is a HDD activity LED, and then a pair of 3.5mm jacks for HD audio connectivity. There are two USB 3.0 ports with only native support, and the panel ends with the LED ringed power button, and no reset.

The left side panel spans the entire side of the chassis, unlike others that stop short where the bezel attaches. We also see that the paint is very shiny and reflective, but most of the steel here has been removed in favor of the large window.

The back of the S340 offers the I/O and 120mm exhaust fan at the top, just above the seven ventilated slot covers, and the mesh area. That leaves us with the bottom used for the PSU, and we see there is an adapter bracket installed for this.

The right side of the chassis keeps its full steel look, and has more of that shiny black paint applied. This paint will show fingerprints, as you can see at the top, but when clean, it really does look nice as it reflects its surroundings.

Even the bottom of the chassis got the same paint treatment. Here we find large, chunky, rectangular feet with rubber pads on them, and the PSU dust cover is between the two at the left. There are the holes for the plus one 3.5" drive between the feet at the right.
