What Changed with the S340?
NZXT and CyberPower are collaborating closely on a recolored S340 – the chassis is the same, the frame is the same – to offer the case in an orange on black and red on black suite. The S340 is part of NZXT's initiative to remove plastic from cases; it's still got some plastic on the front panel, but you won't find any plastic panels elsewhere. As with the stock S340, the custom CyberPower Source 340 chassis will include a power supply shroud (hiding the PSU and cabling) and cable “shroud” on the right side of the frame. Both shrouds will be colored in orange or red, depending on which unit is ordered, with matte black for the rest of the case. CyberPower branding will be painted along the shrouds.
The unit we saw was a production model, meaning that it was just a sample to test out the colors. The shroud wasn't yet painted, but we were able to obtain some renders from NZXT and CyberPower:
It's got potential. Either way, we know that the enclosure will (presently) only be available through CyberPower's website – it is yet unknown if NZXT will sell the recolored models separately after some contractual period of time.
We've got more Maxwell content coming up shortly, so keep eyes peeled to social media (twitter / facebook / YouTube) for that.
