Introduction & Closer Look
I’m sure you are no stranger to NZXT’s Source 340 or S340 case; it’s shown itself to be a popular range from a popular company, but what happens when you arm it with a new livery? Well today Razer fans are in for a treat as NZXT recently launched another of their custom Razer special edition cases; The NZXT S340 Razer edition ATX.
So what’s new with the new Razer S340 special edition? Well in terms of specifications, nothing; it features the exact same layout with the exact same specs; it is what it is, a special edition S340.

The NZXT S340 Razer special edition case features an ATX design with support for M-ATX and M-ITX motherboards alike and takes full sized ATX power supplies. The most striking feature about the exterior is of course the bright and vibrant Razer logo situated at the front of the case; it really sets the stunning matte black finish off.
Featured on the S340 is a large viewing window allowing for end users to show off their sweet looking rigs and systems off to the world. Of course this is subjective to personal taste, but I like the solid squared structure and uniformed design of the S340.
The panel at the front can be removed to gain access to the intake fans and dust filter, but the main feature is the front I/O with 2 x USB 3.0 ports in Razer green (brilliant), a power switch and the obligatory 3.5mm inputs for a microphone and headphone pairing.
One thing noticeable about the NZXT S340 is the premium feeling case feet with rubberised stoppers to restrict the case to one position on your desk; these are also raised pretty high off the ground allowing for plenty of airflow to pass through the power supply intake as well as keeping with the laws of basic thermodynamics.
The white strips you see are green accent LED strips which look pretty sweet if you’re into green or generally like that sort of thing.
