NZXT S340 Razer Edition

A couple of weeks ago, we had the pleasure of reviewing the NZXT Noctis 450 which left us amazed at how much high end hardware we could install in a mid-tower chassis and still have the system running cool. The Noctis 450 also gave you the option of installing two radiators up to 360mm in the top section and front sections of the Noctis 450. Today we will be taking a look at another NXZT mid-tower chassis, the new S340 Razer Edition. Let’s take an in depth look at the S340 and see how it matches up against the Noctis 450 and what kind of cooling options the S340 has to offer.

OCZ Trion 100 480GB SSD

The Trion 100 is built a bit different than the previous OCZ drives we have tested. Inside, we find a Toshiba’s TC58NC controller. This is different than the Barefoot controller we are used to seeing in OCZ drives. Toshiba’s own 19nm TLC Flash is used, whereas the other OCZ drives we have tested recently have used Toshiba MLC Flash.
