FSP CMT340 Mid-Tower Chassis
It is hard to deny the sleekness of the front of the chassis, as all you see from this angle is a tempered glass panel which has been tinted, with just a slight view of the fans behind it. If anything is a bit off, it is the fact that we can see the glass panel on the right side of the chassis, and there is no match on the right side.
Just behind the glass, on the top of the chassis is the same front I/O panel we saw in the CMT510. There is a pair of USB 3.0 ports on the left, 3.5mm jacks and the power and HDD activity LEDs in the middle, with a paddle witch for the power and RGB modes.
The rest of the top panel is open for optional fans or passive ventilation. To keep hair and debris out of the chassis, FSP opted for a plastic dust filter that magnetically attaches to the chassis in this instance.
The left side of the chassis is another side where the view is of the tempered glass panel. The glass is painted black around the edge to block view of the frame, but there is a bit of steel showing at the top and bottom of the glass. Note too that the panel is held in place at the back, without thumbscrews through the glass. This time the glass is secured to a steel frame.
The rear of the chassis is pretty standard. The rear I/O and exhaust fan are at the top, followed by seven expansion slot covers that are externally accessed. However, when we look at the PSU area, there is no mounting holes, as the hardware includes a PSU mounting plate for that.
Rather than offering, and spending extra money on, a glass panel on the right side of the chassis, FSP has opted for steel this time. In all honesty, the shine of glass painted black on the inside would look nice, but otherwise, we see no reason for a glass panel here.
The feet under the CMT340 are round, and made of plastic, with no additional rubber for grip, and we do notice it will slide on smooth surfaces rather easily. In the middle of the floor, to the left is a clipped in plastic dust filter for the PSU, while the right offers some ventilation as well as two locations where the HDD cage can be mounted.
