NZXT Source 340 Budget Gaming Case Specs Announced

By Published September 03, 2014 at 9:00 am

I’ve watched what NZXT offers with their crafted series cases for quite some time now. Besides, it’s always good to see the company release a case that isn’t a Phantom brand. Their lineup of cases keeps growing post-PAX. In the case of the Source 340, we get a case that seems to be a less expensive variant of the H440 with a chassis overhaul. The H440 was a ground-breaking case and was one of the first cases to include a power supply shroud and completely remove the 5.25", bays allowing for more cooling options and a cleaner look. The Source 340 at first glance appears to mimic everything we loved about the H440, but hovers at almost half the price.

The Source 340 is comprised of a steel chassis, and minimal usage of plastics for more durability (the front panel has been entirely redone from the H440). The absence of an optical drive bay and lowering of the HDD trays enables full support for a 280mm radiator in the front. Even though this case isn’t very big, being 432mm long x 445mm tall, NZXT found a way to open up the inside of the case for longer graphics cards and even open loop water cooling systems. As usual with NZXT cases, you get plenty of cable management options included, and even a cable management bar to tuck away those messy cables. Right now, the only color options available are the standard black and white variants.

If you’re looking for a clean, sleek-looking case that will not break your budget or take up too much space, NZXT is selling this case for $70 at initial launch. Right now, you can only pre-order from their Armory and it will not be available until September 15th. Stick around for a more in-depth review of the Source 340 when we get a chance to get our hands on it.
