Opening up the NZXT S340 was kinda like Christmas morning for me. I was excited to see what was inside, and how it was going to look without the optical drive bays cluttering up the inside of the chassis. I Like it! The inside of the NZXT S340 PC chassis is really clean looking, granted there’s no system inside of it yet, which means no wires just yet.
The back panel of the NZXT S340 is pretty much the same as we saw on the outside. Each of the expansion slot covers is held in with a thumb screw, allowing for quick and easy changes. The fan is rated for 45 CFM at only 21 dBA, it’s one of the NZXT FN V2 Fans that retails for $7.99 on it’s own.
On the inside top of the chassis we can see the same NZXT FN V2 Fan installed. If you were so inclined, the top of the NZXT S340 can handle a single 140mm fan in place of the 120mm FN V2 fan that comes installed.
By leaving the optical drive bays out of the NZXT S340, NZXT was able to give enough room for either a dual 120mm radiator, or a dual 140mm radiator up front.
The NZXT S340 has a pair of drive trays that are meant for a pair of SSD’s, or at least a pair of 2.5″ hard drives. Each of these drive trays are removable simply by removing the single thumb screw and sliding it off of the catches. There is a cutout behind the drive trays to run the SATA cable and power cable through.
The back of the motherboard tray has a number of spots that are ideal for cable management. Each of these spots allow you to run a zip tie through to secure the wires. NZXT has done a great job of making cable management easy enough for anyone to do.
While the NZXT S340 SSD drive trays are easily accessible through the main side panel, the 3.5″ hard drive cage is somewhat less accessible. Though you only need to open up the other side of the S340 to access them.
Tucked into the NZXT S340 HDD cage, is the box of accessories.
It’s not a super exciting box of accessories, but there isn’t much that’s needed for the NZXT S340. Included in the accessory box is a handful of screws of various sizes. There is a couple of 6-32 hexagon head screws, 6-32 phillips head screws, some M3 x .5 screws, and a standoff with a thumb piece to tighten in. NZXT also included a handful of zip ties to assist in the cable management.
