The NZXT S340 chassis is pretty sharp in white. I’m not typically a fan of white cases, but I really liked the look of this one right off of the bat. The NZXT S340 may be a very simplistic design, the overall look and function really does impress me. The left side of the NZXT S340 features a nice big window to show off all of your hardware. To me this is both a blessing and a curse. I love to show of the hardware I use, but I struggle with cable management (definitely not my forte). Though we will find out later on that NZXT has made that easy! The NZXT S340 is lacking an optical disk drive bay. Leaving out the drive tray does keeps the front of the S340 extremely clean looking, I’m not sold on not having the option.
The opposite side is pretty plain, just a simple white panel. Some chassis have this panel shaped to allow for extra room to hide cables, but this one is nice an flat keeping in line with a nice clean look.
The top of the NZXT S340 chassis is where most of the external features can be found. The top of the S340 comes with a single 120mm FN V2 fan which is rated for 45 CFM at only 21 dBA. The NZXT S340 is able to accommodate up to a 140mm fan there if you wanted a larger fan.
The NZXT S340 front panel is actually tucked up here on the top of the chassis. The S340 features a pair of SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports, headphone jack, microphone jack, power button, and a hard drive activity light. I’m a little surprised that there isn’t a reset button on the chassis, though that’s certainly not a deal breaker for me.
The back panel of the NZXT S340 PC chassis is pretty typical. Each of the seven expansion slots features a thumb screw, so no screw driver needed. The S340 exhaust fan is the same 120mm FN V2 fan that is equipped on the top of the S340.
The bottom of the NZXT S340 has some nice tall rubber feet, the provides plenty of breathing room under the system, and the rubber feet prevent it from sliding around. Underneath the power supply, there is a removable filter that can be taken off and cleaned.
