NZXT has released a new, premium version of their excellent S340 mid-tower enclosure (which we reviewed last year), and the S340 Elite features a tempered-glass side panel, while case I/O now offers an HDMI port for VR builds.

"Expanding on the S340’s renowned durability, the S340 Elite features a tempered glass panel to showcase builds with crisp clarity. The top IO panel has been optimized with an HDMI port and additional USB ports for a streamlined VR experience. It includes a magnetic cable management puck to conveniently store VR or audio headsets with fast and flexible mounting access. The S340 Elite is strong, compact, and takes the S340 chassis to new heights."

NZXT lists the S340 Elite's main features, all new with this version of the enclosure:

  • Tempered glass side panel: showcase your build
  • VR cable management puck: move freely & clean cables
  • Front VR accessibility: plugging your VR headset is easy & convenient
  • Interior cable management clamps: easy cable management
  • Additional SSD tray: increase storage options

As strong a performer as the original S340 was considering its affordable $69.99 price tag, and for a case with a full tempered-glass side panel the Elite version is priced very competitively at $99.99. A $30 premium for the added features seems like a very good tradeoff, and we already have one of these new S340 Elite enclosures in for testing, so expect a full review soon!

Does that vertical slot at the front fit a slim optical drive?

Well on the S340 (non elite version), that spot is where you pull the front intake filter out from so no I do not think it is for an optical drive.

Kyle from AwesomeSauceNetwork...err BitWit did a build in this case just the other day on his YouTube channel. Check it out. Decent computer case.

Still wish NZXT would offer a variant with a high air flow front panel.

Cheap, Chinese, garbage. Only poor peasants use Nzxt crap.

Why do I want the magnetic puck more than the case?
