What’s interesting to note is that the NZXT S340 does not come with drive cage at all. No optical drives for you sir. Seriously, who needs 4x 5.25″ bays, 4x 3.5″ bays and a bunch of 2.5″ bays? 😛
The NZXT S340 comes with a fully covered bottom section, of which you can now proudly display the SSDs that took a chunk of your savings. 😀 As for 3.5″ drives, there are a few bays underneath the cover for it.
As for cooling, the casing comes with 2x 120mm fan at the back and top, this also means that the S340’s casing airflow is of negative pressure, this means dust will enter from any available opening.
Here’s a view from the back. Starting from the upper left corner, you’ll see that NZXT provided cutout of generous size for back-plate mounting.
On the upper right, there’s the PSU bay. With the whole area covered, you’re assured a tidy looking casing even if you’re using a non-modular PSU.
On the lower right, the 3.5″ drive bays that I mentioned earlier. As you can see there’s also that white bar that runs across the panel, the space gives you some headroom for cable management.
NZXT S340 Mid-Tower Desktop PC Casing retails at RM259 which I think is an unbelievably good price for a casing of this quality. It’s not perfect but it’s good, in fact I’ve not come across any better casing that that price point and it certainly looks and feels better than some casings that are priced higher.
Here’s the final output – budget casing, you say?
