Look ma, no optical drives bays!
NZXT's growing family of computer cases now includes the Source 340 (S340), a compact mid-tower made from strong, cold-rolled steel. In an attempt to offer system builders more elbow room so that piecing together a PC is a little easier, NZXT eight-sixed the optical drive bays and relocated the hard drive bays to a lower position. According to NZXT, these subtle design choices opened up the case.
The S340 can house a Kraken X61 liquid cooling setup in the front and an X31 in the rear, along with a total of up to three 140mm or four 120mm fans. Thick panel cutouts allow for better airflow to the fully filtered intake.
NZXT's S340 also features USB 3.0 connectivity, a power supply shroud, minimal plastic use, extra thick side panels, grommet-less cable management bars, and a compact form factor measuring 445mm (H) by 432mm.
The NZXT S340 is available now in black or white for $70.
